Are you showing off?

May 03, 2024

A Texan friend once told me If you’ve done it, it ain’t braggin’.

I shared this with someone recently. She had a gremlin voice telling her to not speak up so loudly, to maybe stay a little small when she presents on the topics she’s an expert in so she doesn't seem over-confident. I shared the Texan version, then my own:  

 If you know it, it’s not showing off. It’s sharing.  

Women often grow up with messaging that tells them to keep it down, sweetheart. As a result, we don’t always feel comfortable standing in the value of who we are and what we know. Sharing expertise can feel braggy and, let’s face it, isn’t always well-received.

We must share it anyway. Otherwise it’s like having a huge platter of warm chocolate chip cookies that we parade in front of everyone else without letting them have a single bite. What kind of monster does that? 😁

One of my gifts is helping women business owners simplify how they work so that they reclaim their time, energy and joy while growing their business. Not bragging, simply sharing. I’d love to share that with you - how about a call to talk about where you are and where you’d like to be. We’ll find some ways to bridge that gap. Click here to find a good time for you.

How are you sharing your gifts today? Speak up and know that what you do helps people. So do more of that. 😘
