    [Blog] The Power of Authenticity
    The Power of Authenticity is a post from: Convince and Convert Blog: Social Media Strategy and Social Media Consulting. When you’re authentic, you’re true to yourself. When your brand is authentic, it is true to its mission and purpose. The power in authenticity, whether in your brand or person, is that it leaves no questions unanswered. People know where you stand, what you’re made of and what is important to you. Authenticity helps you define how they see you, without risking they’ll be confused. When you’re wishy-washy, there’s a lack of definition.
