Promote Yourself

Promote Yourself

with Lisa Bragg

"So many of us are taught to be hidden gems and to wait for someone else to choose you.” – Lisa Bragg

Do you struggle to talk about yourself, share your amazing work, ask for testimonials, and share your success stories? Way too many women do – and it affects their ability to get clients, charge higher prices and earn more.

It shouldn’t be that way!

Talking about the good you do can feel like bragging. It often feels unnatural.

It comes up against cultural programming about what we are and aren’t supposed to do, be and say as women.

Well, I say: ENOUGH! It’s time to claim your successes and speak up about them.

** As we all know, if you don’t, no one else will. **

Lisa Bragg is the author of a new book called Bragging Rights on how to talk about success. Lisa joined me on this episode of Profitable Joyful Consulting to flip the cultural script and share how to talk about your work using purposeful self-promotion.
