We live in a society that’s easily swayed by celebrities and social media influencers. At some point, we put these people so high up on pedestals that we started to look up to them for every single piece of advice. Then, when they show their human-side, when they screw up publicly -- or don’t show up socially, we feel personally let down. Why though?
In this episode, I’m walking you through my own thought process on this topic. I’m sharing about how let down I felt by Dave Ramsey’s lack of #BLM support, and how heart-broken I felt about Rachel Hollis’ divorce. But I’m also sharing why it’s important to remember that even influencers and celebrities are mere mortals, and that the true magic comes when we remember to form our own opinions and be free-thinkers.IN THIS EPISODE, SAMI SHARES ABOUT:
