Finding Authentic Boldness & How to be an Effective Self-Advocate (Credits: 2.0 BE)

At a time when women are leaning in to find their optimal professional voice, there is a vast amount of confusion (and sometimes isolation) regarding what authentically works and how to implement without alienating those around you. Finding Authentic Boldness is about effective self-advocacy and becoming your own agent. It is about authentic communication and confidence that brightens your light and helps professional women get what they really, really want for their careers and lives. It is about becoming the best version of yourself to grow your practice, clients and business generation confidence.
