A Personal, Confessional Illustration

  • The Visionary in Me inspired me to write way too much for this landing page. I remembered that “Less can be more.”
  • The Visionary in Me disclosed more symbolically in the initial draft than most readers would be ready for. I remembered to “court first.”
  • The Visionary in Me created a multi-dimensional draft that lacked focus. I remembered to “put one foot in front of the other.”

I balanced the Visionary in me to create a more focused landing page – and saved some of what I know for later.


How well did you relate to all of this? If you are high Visionary, you probably identified yourself in almost everything I wrote. If your inner Visionary is tempered by other styles, you probably recognized yourself in some aspects, but it didn’t seem like I was talking totally about you.

In part 1 of The SpeakStrong Method eCourse, you can see just how high or moderate your Inner Visionary is.
