Afraid of self promotion? I thought it was an important question to raise, as the year end comes around and along with it those feedback and bonus conversations.
I get it – it can feel icky, braggy, even obnoxious! I was there myself with the release of, The Connector’s Advantage. It was tricky to share my book with a brand new audience, but I was so proud of it and excited to share it with the world. That shift is what helped me.
Yes, I was promoting it, but I was also sharing it. I was sharing my enthusiasm, my pride in my accomplishment, and inviting others to be part of it with me.
That’s my secret for you when it comes to self-promotion and it’s all about your mindset. The key difference between shining and shying away, is your ability to share your experiences with others. Then when others are “self-promoting” back, share in their experiences too.
If you want a promotion…part of the word promotion is, you guessed it, to promote. Self promotion is not a bad thing and there should be no guilt about it. It is a great thing to share yourself. Be proud of your accomplishments and promote them too.
