As women, we are taught from an early age to be modest. We are expected to downplay and not “brag” about ourselves or our accomplishments too much. We are told people will find it somehow offensive or distasteful. So, we learn to clam up.
As adult women running businesses, we tend to carry those beliefs forward into our professional lives.
Sadly, when our time comes to shine, we shy away from opportunities to take the spotlight, even though stepping into it would help our businesses grow.
