All You Ever Wanted to Know About Promoting Yourself

This past week we focused on WHY it is crucial for women to promote themselves, and HOW.

Here were our four secrets to getting ahead:

  1. Communicate your achievements
  2. Practice promoting yourself
  3. Track your accomplishments
  4. Nominate yourself for a promotion

We’ve had a lot of great conversations this week on our Facebook page, as well as on Twitter.
