Getting comfortable and confident talking about your pet business


Spread the love:

When you start a business or even if you’ve been running it for some time, talking about what you do can be challenging.

There are all kinds of reasons why, as an entrepreneur, you might feel lacking in confidence when it comes to self-promotion.

In this podcast episode, I’m talking about the importance of becoming comfortable and confident when it comes to sharing how you support your customers and clients.

And exploring what confidence is, and providing some simple strategies to help build it, because if you’re not visible, your potential clients are going to go elsewhere.

If you’d like to learn more about this, I’m going to be hosting a free Confidence Building Workshop on Thursday, August 31st at 7pm on Zoom.
