Harness Your Confidence

by / ⠀Entrepreneurship / January 22, 2014

Confidence is something everyone has; however, it varies in strength.  Some people are confident in their mathematic abilities, reading, writing or even social skills, but when it comes down to it, people aren’t confident enough in themselves.  Granted we aren’t good at everything and good leaders know that they need to strengthen their weaknesses as much as possible.  For example, writing is one of my weakest abilities, but…

Confessions of a Former Self-Doubter

by / ⠀Entrepreneurship Startup Advice / October 18, 2013

Do me a favor and ask yourself an important question: Are you good enough? And I mean really ask yourself that. Do you truly believe you’re good enough to have the life you dream of? Do you think you’re talented enough? Smart enough? Worthy enough? Most of us will find when we really stop and evaluate our lives, our actions and decisions don’t reflect a confidence in our…

Let me present you with a scenario; imagine two individuals, James and Robin both come up with the same idea. Both think it is going to fill a gap in the market and will revolutionise the industry.

When you give people a compelling reason why they should do it, 100% they’ll do it. Gaining confidence and getting over pitch anxiety seems like the question I should answer in this post. How do I get…

Stop Pitching! It’s’ NOT Genuine

by / ⠀Funding Startup Advice / February 17, 2012

I’m really sick of these startup pitches. Their businesses are usually miles apart, but listening to their pitches make them sound all the same. It’s so damn generic! “So… how do we solve this?” “With out us…users…would be lost…” “We help grow online communities…to reach their full, potential” “This is a $500…million dollar market…If we reach…10% of this market, we’ll be successful” “Our Team consists of myself…I have…

There is nothing worse in the world of business than classic egotistical arrogance.  Everyone know’s that guy who just can’t help but tell everyone how awesome he is.  But the truth is–if he was really that cool, why would he have to tell everyone? The real trick is mastering the confidence that comes with humility.  Emotional intelligence is not something that everyone is blessed with, and it’s something…

The primal nature of subtle social cues and what they mean to our subconscious. What’s with the strut? Psychologically there are many cues that denote the feeling of confidence.

Many of these actions we cannot control and some of the micro twitches in our face, that we consciously miss, can be picked up by our subconscious which…
