Authenticity is what allows you to connect with your readers and create deep emotional connection with them.

How do you write authentically?

By doing the internal work required to connect, at the deepest levels possible, with your WHY.

The more layers of that onion you peel, the closer you get to what really drives you and fulfills you.
