Like most of my professional female coaching clients, self-doubt can certainly rear it's ugly little head with me too. Like women everywhere, I am prone to somehow having dog-like accuracy for hearing any comments I perceive as negative – and yet can be deaf to compliments So in practicing what I preach, I wanted to share a little of went right last week. Friday kicked off my Beyond the Boys' Club Boot Camp. Setting it up has been a real learning curve and while I was nervous beforehand, it went brilliantly with a few people even e-mailing me later that same day to tell me what profile-raising activities they were now doing, like requesting to make a presentation to a new committee and contributing a article about their niche area to an industry magazine. I was so pleased, and very excited about working with this group of aspiring women. And I also had the loveliest e-mail from a Isabella Brusati, a reader of BTBC, who liked it so much she bought it as Xmas gifts for her high-achieving girlfriends! Her sister said the book "opened my eyes!" and that she resolved to use 2010 to put into practice all the great techniques and tips. Thanks Isabella for getting in touch, and all the other clients who make my work so rewarding!
