One of the reasons it took me so long to present this material is that I have a strong aversion to becoming Pedestal-ed (Yes I verbified Pedestal, I'm OK with that).
While there is some amount of ego joy in being admired or respected, if this transfers over into being "looked up to" I find it becomes detrimental and restrictive. I want people to remain in their own power, to find their own path.
Yet to gain an audience to share my knowledge and experience with, I need to create some kind of persona, an identity that people recognise as worthy of allocating their time and money to listening to. I have to present my approach with the full passion that I have for it, and openly state that it is not the only path.
How do I talk myself up enough to get people to listen, and still keep the focus on the material, not the messenger?
How do I present this material with enough charisma that people will have confidence in it, while leaving enough space for people to explore their own approach?
