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.

This is a big week!

My favorite holiday, Thanksgiving, is in two days. Plus, I’m test driving a new recipe for one of my favorite foods — mashed potatoes.

When I’m holed up in my woman cave deeply focused on a project, I sometimes worry that when I come up for air and connect with others . .  I’m annoying people around me with all my business speak.

Which brings me to today’s MarieTV episode.

Do you ever wonder . . . does your marketing annoy people?
