Build Your Confidence with this Important Foundation

Over the past year or so, you may have held off on asking for a promotion or raise, but now you feel like Samuel L. Jackson in The Negotiator. You may have held off on special requests because it felt selfish during a time of crisis, but now you're looking to Julia Roberts from Erin Brockovich for strength. You may have felt comfortable behind your computer screen, but now you're preparing like Mel Gibson in Braveheart to give a rousing presentation to an important group. Whether you're channeling Samuel, Julia, or Mel, you may need a dose of confidence! While it's common knowledge that confidence is one of the keys to having success in these situations, what's not so common knowledge is whether or not you have what it takes to actually be confident. In this video I share the foundation required so that confidence is no longer an illusion, but instead, a reality for you!
