John, My name is Nigel and I am an on air presenter. You always talk about how important it is to be real, genuine and relatable. Can you explain in better detail what you mean? Nigel

First, here are the definitions of each word:

1. Being or occurring in fact or actuality; having verifiable existence: real objects; a real illness.
2. True and actual; not imaginary, alleged, or ideal: real people, not ghosts; a film based on real life.
3. Of or founded on practical matters and concerns: a recent graduate experiencing the real world for the first time.

4Genuine and authentic; not artificial or spurious: real mink; real humility.

1. Actually possessing the alleged or apparent attribute or character.

2. Not spurious or counterfeit; authentic.

1. To narrate or tell.

2. To bring into or link in logical or natural association.

3. To establish or demonstrate a connection between.
Bottom line...Don't fake it...Don't lie to your listener...Find things in your life you can share that are relatable...It's OK to be self deprecating, in fact it's endearing.  Just be YOU.
