Developing Confidence as a Consulting & Coaching Business Owner (Ep9)

The #1 thing that stands in the way of a great leadership career and an even better consulting and coaching business isn't lack of luck, talent, or even ambition - it's a lack of confidence.

But what is confidence? And how do you get it?

We unpack confidence in this episode so you can move forward with assurance.

I'll reveal what confidence really is (it's not what you think) and actionable strategies you can use RIGHT NOW to develop yours.

This is the third episode of my Getting Started in Consulting and Coaching series.

[9:10] The transition from executive to consulting and coaching is multifaceted. To tackle this transition, you need to develop confidence and trust in yourself.
