So, What about Weaknesses and Vulnerabilities

“Vulnerability works — only to the extent that you also step into and claim your expertise, stand in your power, and know your strengths.”

How can you remain in your power and expertise as a consultant, while also having a relationship with your weaknesses?

This season of the Profitable Joyful Consulting podcast is about gifts, talents, skills, and expertise, but we all have weaknesses, too — those places where we don’t feel like we’re 100% amazing. What do you do with those in your work? Can you still market yourself as a complete package when you’re lacking in certain areas? Do you admit weaknesses to clients?

Tune in to this episode to learn how to have a relationship to your weaknesses in your business while still staying in your power.
