NEW Podcast: Are You Too Proud (or Shy) to Brag?

I'm proud to share with you a podcast in which I was interviewed by Stacey Shipman for her Back to Your Senses show.

In this podcast, I share practical answers to frequently asked questions about self-promotion:

  • What is your WOW! Factor? How/when can you share it?
  • Why is it important for both business owners and career professionals to create a buzz about your accomplishments?
  • What are effective ways to self-promote without appearing “pushy” or “arrogant”?
This last point is particularly relevant given our current situation - I'd argue that now is NOT the time for you to be bashful about highlighting how you can add value to a prospective employer or new client. While self-promotion can sometimes be a challenge, I provide simple steps you can take TODAY to start promoting not only yourself but your values as well.

And, I've renewed my 140-character pitch challenge to all of my listeners and readers. Whether you are a job seeker or business owner, tips in this podcast will help you network and promote yourself to success!

After you listen to the podcast, please share your comments and feedback. You can tweet me on Twitter or share your 140-character pitch here on the blog.

I listend to the podcast and really liked what I heard. I blog at and I provide resources for out of work people. I'm also involved with a nonprofit Back on Track Network ( that helps out of work individuals. Your message would be valuable for my audience. Would you be open to an webcast or podcast with our group. We will be kicking off our series in the next month or so.
