Play a bigger game
One thing I suck at is self-promotion. I watch a lot of people around me propel their businesses forward through being vocal about their achievements, but it’s something I know I have to get better at.
Sure, I blog and do the occasional media interview but do I put effort into it and prioritise it? Nope. Undoubtedly, one of the best ways you can get your name out there and meet others and increase your confidence is to enter business awards, and there are none better than the Telstra Business Women’s Awards.
Each year I am consistently impressed at the calibre of the Awards program and the various initiatives associated with it. It’s a massive investment that Telstra makes each year and it sends a clear message that they’re behind women in business in this country.
Over the years, I’ve loved watching the journeys of friends who have succeeded at the Awards and how they’ve gone on to play different (bigger) games through being involved.
Imagine! That could be you! Why don’t you throw caution to the wind and nominate yourself today? Or, have a think about who in your network deserves the accolade just as much? All you need to do is click here. I make it a personal habit each year to sit down and think of a handful of women who I believe deserve the recognition and then I nominate them, and I’d love for you to do the same.
And while I may suck at self-promotion, one thing I’m really good at is promoting others! I’d like to kick off a conversation on which businesswoman inspires you. Leave a comment below and you’ll go in the draw to win a Business Chicks membership (valued at $149 per year).
