Since self-promotion is a common part of business, those of us who do more self-promotion may have better chances of being hired by clients, getting speaking opportunities, and media features. You simply cannot grow if you are the best kept secret in your industry.
But putting yourself out there can be scary and uncomfortable, right?
One of my first major visibility opportunities was, Emceeing the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship Annual event. Basically, it was a must attend gala for hundreds of New York’s elite philanthropists and corporate givers.
I was terrified. But I did it! And got invited back to Emcee several times after. Since then, I have gotten REALLY comfortable getting in front of an audience and you will too after you hear this interview.
…and it’s not nearly as difficult as you think!
Today, I’m sharing a conversation with my long-time business friend Lucinda Cross-Oti, CEO at Activate Worldwide. She is the one of the best people that I can think of to inspire you to get out of your own way and start shamelessly self-promoting.
Lucinda overcame what felt like a shameful dark past that she thought would keep her from getting clients and turned her personal story into a product that has allowed her to work with national brands like Walmart, Essence Magazine and was featured in a BET show, Queen Boss.
In this episode of Breadwinning Women, we cover everything from finding your RIGHT story to the EXACT step-by-step process you can take to be your own publicist.
