Each Wednesday Jamie Ridler poses a wishful question and invites her readers to respond. I am certainly not a regular with this practice, but today's question struck a chord with me.
Jamie asked, "How do you wish to come out of your shell?" I wish to come out of my shell by being more comfortable talking about my business.
I pretty much turn into a rambling idiot or a silent statue at the mere mention of the word "networking." However, I have learned that I don't need to think of traditional, formal networking as the only way of promoting my business. (Just typing the words "promoting my business" makes me nervous!) I'm not sure what my big hangup is when it comes to talking about myself and the work I do, but I wish with all my heart for it to become easier and feel more natural.
