Welcome!  I’m so excited to announce the release of my new ebook “Speak Without Fear: The Smart Ambitious Woman’s Guide to Assertiveness in the Workplace.”

And a bit more on today’s episode, which is all about learning to be assertive at work.  I spent a lot of time feeling totally afraid and paralyzed at the thought of being more vocal and outspoken, and this became a problem, because assertiveness is extremely important for one’s professional growth.

 

This is what inspired me to write my ebook.  Tune into today’s episode to learn more about why assertiveness matters so much, and why it doesn’t have to feel awful, weird, or agro. 

 

Sending love,
