COLLABORATIVE STRESS DOWN: BACK YOURSELF WITH SANDY TAYLOR (PATREON MEMBER EXCLUSIVE EVENT!)
In this special collaborative stress down, Sandy Taylor is here to give you the freedom to back yourself!
According to Sandy, backing yourself as a business proposition, particularly if you’re not outgoing, glamourous, extroverted or the type that’s generally outwardly confident.
Sounds appealing? Sandy is joining us for a collaborative stress down on how to back yourself that looks at:
1) How to find your version of strength, even if it’s quieter than most
2) Staying the course and keeping yourself motivated to find your version of forward momentum or consistency
3) Developing and maintaining confidence in your abilities in the face of the competition who are comfy on camera and generally telling everyone how fabulous they are.
