38 Min, 26 Sec · By Heather Hansen

Lisa Bragg shares with Heather why women need to brag, how to do it in the right way & why bragging needs to be viewed as self-love and pride.

Society often tells us (especially women) that we must be humble and not speak about our accomplishments, but how can that serve us in getting what we want? Author and speaker Lisa Bragg shares why waiting for someone to notice your work is just not enough in today’s noisy world and how to brag the right way.

We’ll Discuss

  • How she fought against the conditioning to hide her successes in order to fit in
  • Why bragging should be viewed as self-love and expressing pride in your work and not self-aggrandizing
  • The difference between wanting a spotlight only on yourself and encouraging everyone to shine
  • How to view competitors as collaborators
