Brag isn’t a dirty word! Or at least, it shouldn’t be. That’s what Meredith Fineman, author of Brag Better, shares in this episode all about how to master the art of self-promotion. Meredith is the founder of FinePoint, a leadership and professional development company focused on training women on bragging, a systemic issues issue she hopes to eradicate. She is also an entrepreneur, media expert and freelance writer who has written for outlets like the Harvard Business Review, Forbes, FastCompany, and Inc.
You see, if you don’t promote yourself and tell others what you’re good at and what you’ve achieved, no one’s going to ask! The advice that your work will speak for itself, unfortunately, isn’t true anymore (and who knows if it was ever true!). In today’s society, if you want to succeed in life and your career, you need to brag about yourself. And no, that doesn’t mean being arrogant or boastful in the negative way you may think.
It means knowing who you are, what you want, and understanding how to get to where you want to go while also lifting others up at the same time. We dive deep into this topic in the second to last week of Season 10 of the podcast, so I hope you really enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed interviewing Meredith!
