The you YOU wanna be.
Nino Says...I think about it in a simple manner of: the old you is all they know prior to you shifting gears. First impressions are lasting impressions so it could take some time and consistency for some to catch on and respect it, or feel comfortable dealing with a newer version of you.
If you’ve voiced or shown your rebranded self to these people well enough to where they should make no mistake of the new energy they are encountering, then you may just have to accept the fact that not everyone is going to react to your reinventing the way you want. It’s life. Not everyone is going to understand your journey, and for that, they can’t be blamed. Even if it is frustrating.
