Interviews: Don’t be shy to be boastful about your accomplishments. Don’t rest on the laurels on your resume - bring them to life by sharing stories of your impact.

Salary negotiation: Don’t be shy. Shoot for the moon.


It only takes one yes.


No one knows your shortcomings, history, challenges, etc but you. Present yourself confidently in the best possibly light, and don’t make it harder for yourself by being too critical of your past or modest about your accomplishments. Time to shine!! ⭐️


There is only ONE! Tell them, tell them and tell them again!!

Don't post on LinkedIn saying, "How grateful you are that you got the job/promotion". Keep your successes internal and only speak up about them when you need to convince someone for a career opportunity.

Consistent "can-do"attitude & tone

Wherever there are shortcomings, address them honestly and be confident. Never be defensive.
