Sometimes people meet me and ask how they can become a confident marketer. Here are 3 steps to take that will get you on the right path.
1. Train and invest in yourself – few people are told as children that they can do anything….they most usually are given limits rather than horizons. School and college are not the end of learning for confident people.
2. Watch your response to events. If you feel as if you flubbed, take a deep breath, pause, and refocus. If people notice, they will respect you for pulling yourself back together, most people won’t notice at all.
3. Use honesty. If you are nervous, simply say “I’m so happy to meet you and tell you about my business. I often get just a bit nervous, so please excuse me if I stumble a bit.” Trust the kindness in others.
Being confident means learning to trust in the positive reaction of others when you present yourself. It doesn’t require perfection! These three steps will help you feel and act confidently. Give them a try and let me know what happens!
