LISTENER: Kaycee - Sparketype: Sage/Maker - Performer
QUESTION: Listener Kaycee asks what do you do when the thing that seems to come hardest for you, is also the thing you feel you need to do in order to succeed at your job?
She feels like she needs to center her ‘inner performer’ to reach larger audiences outside of her community, in order to further build credibility and trustworthiness beyond her personal network. But, that’s also her Anti Sparketype - or heaviest lift - when it comes to work. And, by the way, Kaycee’s not alone, as the Performer is, by far, the most common Anti Sparketypes in our research of more than 700,000 people now.
