The other day I was asked by a stranger to endorse her professional skills on LI.
What struck me though was that the lady who asked me holds a doctor title.
It's a real-life example of how qualifications mean very little when it comes to our personal confidence.
It also shows how our personal confidence is the fundamental basis for all other types of confidence.
This lady is highly qualified and I am sure she has a wealth of professional experience and competencies. Yet she felt the need to ask a stranger to provide her with hollow approval in order to boost her virtual credibility.
I am not posting this to make her or anyone feel bad.
I get it. It's a tough world out there.
But it will not get any less tough if we keep taking the easy way out.
I do not have a PhD in psychology.
If you want a traditionally schooled coach, I am not the one for you.
My coaching is not even based on the only university degree that I hold.
It's based on 5 years of real-life experience of getting women ready for their Boudoir photoshoot, professional and personal experience and intuitive observation.
It's the practical, personalised approach, it's "unendorsable" by traditional means.
Yet, I am confident in its quality and effectiveness as I have seen its results in myself and others.
