How To Believe In Your Business When You Don’t Always Believe In Yourself

No matter what you’re focused on creating right now, I think you’ll appreciate today’s episode.

Because we’re tackling a question from a reader struggling with the daily battles of fear and self-doubt in her business. She’s wondering…

How do you keep selling your business (your products, services, ideas, mission, etc.) when you don’t feel fully confident in yourself?

Your attention’s like a flashlight. Shine it out on others, and you lose sight of your own fear. Click To Tweet

To be clear: this doesn’t just apply to business owners.

It applies to anyone who must share and express their ideas, their beliefs and their work in the world on a consistent basis.

Especially on days when your self-confidence is down in the dumps.  

Since this is something I have personal experience with, I wanted to share a little trick that serves me well.

How To Take The Shame Out of Self-Promotion

Ever have an opportunity to talk about what you do and either say nothing, or fumble it?

(My hand’s raised.)

That’s because most of us aren’t super great at self-promotion. Selling ourselves can feel awkward, braggartly and just plain wrong.

But if you want your career to thrive and you want your work to make a positive impact — you’ve got to learn how to do it.

Instead of calling it “shameless self-promotion,” let’s take the shame out of it altogether. Click To Tweet

That’s why I’m excited for you to watch today’s episode of MarieTV.  Because who you are matters. You’re on the planet for reason and your work has value.

How To Get Paid When You Hate Asking For Money

When you’re really good at something and actually enjoy doing it, it’s natural to want to turn that passion into a business.

But a strange phenomenon often occurs for passion-based business owners — especially when it’s time to get paid.

The courage to charge for what you do comes from charging for what you do. @MarieForleo Click To Tweet

Using Humor to Create World Change w/ Maysoon Zayid

When I first saw this woman, I knew I needed to have her on MarieTV.

Naturally, I stalked her on Twitter and Facebook. When we finally connected, and she said yes to an interview, I pumped my fist in true Jersey style.

Courageous, funny, smart and beautiful are just a few of the many adjectives I’d use to describe Maysoon Zayid.

It’s about what we’re talking about, not what we look like. @maysoonzayid Click To Tweet

She’s a writer, actor, and comedian whose TED Talk “I got 99 problems… palsy is just one.” has been viewed over 5 million times and translated into 37 languages. You may also recognize her from Adam Sandler’s movie You Don’t Mess with the Zohan.

I love Maysoon because she’s blunt and bold, vulnerable and visionary and never afraid to tackle an issue head on.

If you’ve ever felt judged or marginalized because of who you are, hurt by what others say (especially online), or believed that something you can’t change about yourself is holding you back…

Today’s episode of MarieTV is a must watch.

How To Overcome Fear Of Public Speaking w/ Josh Pais

Before we get going into today’s episode, I want to thank you so very much for all of the love and prayers you sent our way after last week’s accident.

I’m happy to report we’re all doing so much better, and we’re taking very active (and gentle :)) steps to heal.

There’s no doubt in my mind that YOUR positive energy and intentions have, and continue to, help my family tremendously.

Speaking of family, you’ll get to see and hear directly from my man Josh — today.

Josh is an incredible actor, director and teacher. While you can look him up on IMDB to see everything he’s been in, you’ll be able to catch him this summer in the brand new Showtime series, Ray Donovan alongside Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight.

So how does this relate to you?

Well, if you ever struggle with a fear of public speaking, or putting yourself on video, or getting on a big stage, or “putting yourself out there” . . .

This MarieTV episode is a MUST WATCH.
