Many women grow up without confidence in themselves or a feeling of inadequacy prevails over decades, but it doesn’t have to stay that way.

There are more resources and opportunities today than ever for women to take hold of their amazingness and shine. Often it’s a smile, a wise word from a book, video, or influencer in their lives that can start the ball rolling in the direction towards confidence. The reason this is possible is because once a woman comes to the realization that who she “thinks” she is has nothing to do with who she authentically is. As she becomes aware, she realizes there’s a lot she can admire about herself and all she has going on. In fact, give her a few new perspectives, some good coaching, and watch her soar.

On this Dec 10, 2020 WSA-TV Premier Show episodeour Premier Members share tips for becoming aware, stirring up the pot with your authenticity to develop the career that you love, and becoming a powerful, poised and compelling messenger.

Featuring: Dr. Nicole Steele, Peggy Scott & and Erin Hatzikostas

Our experts share some advice and tips:

Dr. Nicole says “Wholeheartedly embrace all the things that make you uniquely you including every gift, talent, and unique ability. Once you identify those things, hone in on them and begin to perfect them as much as possible. As you settle into who you are and the value you bring to the world, it can drastically fuel your passion and clarify your purpose, and as a result it can help propel your level of confidence.”

Erin suggests “1. Stop playing business buzzword bingo: replace the buzzwords in your resume, LinkedIn profile, everywhere – with stories.
2. Change your out of office message: stop talking like a robot and instead tell people what you’re doing, how you’re feeling, or inspire them with a message while you’re taking a break.
3. Include your children in your work: get their input on a project, use their everyday stories as inspiration to those around you, or take them with you when you travel.”

Peggy shares “We are carrying mountains of things we “”need”” to do and accomplish. This mountain keeps us distracted from accomplishing what is most important and keeps us from being present. Every day we carry forward anything that didn’t get accomplished, adding to the mountain. Your presence gets affected, as do your results. Your presence is a powerful vehicle for accomplishing your goals and ambitions. Being clear and present is your “”Presence of Self©”” and your most powerful marketing asset.

To help alleviate the stress of all there is to do and accomplish each day, carry a notebook that you can use to jot down things that come to mind so you don’t have to think about it any longer, until your review your notebook at the end of each day. What you do from there is calendar anything that needs to be accomplished in the near future. With any other tasks you captured on your notebook, create a place where those things don’t get dropped, but that you can review each week to see if something needs to be transferred to your calendar. Doing this each day, creates more peace, clarity and presence because you are not carrying all there is to do in your mind and in your posture.”
