She Cares And Is Not Afraid To Show It
Yesterday, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton choked up at a press conference. In case you didn't see one of the billion replays of the event, you can see it here.
Tears Are Real
When I lived in Washington, DC, two men who became known as the "DC Snipers" (even though not a single sniper attack occurred in the city) terrorized the area shooting people at random. When they shot a child in front of a junior high school, Chief Charles Moose, the chief of police in the Maryland county where most of the shootings took place, choked up at a press conference as he expressed his rage that anyone would shoot a child in front of a school.
Some gave him flack for being weak. I gave him kudos for being real.
Real Is Good. Real Is Confident.
As Indie Business owners, we can take a tip from Hillary and the chief. Have the confidence to be real. Be who you are. Everyone won't like it, but you can't be concerned with that. Tell the truth. Live the truth. Be the truth. That's what really matters.
What Do You Think?
Did Hillary blow it? Does an empowered woman become less empowered when her passion moves her to tears? Or do her tears instead reflect her power and demonstrate that she is confident enough in her abilities to wear her heart on her sleeve now and then?
