On Confidence

Just listened to Episode 74 of “The Broad Experience”, where they discuss confidence. This was the first time I had listened to this podcast, and I really enjoyed it and look forward to listening to some back episodes.

So much of what they said really resonated with me. Being more confident about our skills and putting ourselves out there is hard, but definitely necessary. Working on my own from home, it’s easy to get stuck in a mindset of not promoting yourself and feeling confident about what you are working on. Even something as simple as reaching out to add my blog to the list of tech blogs by women that Brent Simmons recently started gives me pause. (I’m a developer, I’m a woman, this should be a no brainer!) I debated and hesitated, and finally sent him a tweet over a week later. Even now, I’m noticing that I’m not in the OPML file (or Twitter list), and will need to work up the nerve to ask to be added to it. Increasing confidence - one step at a time!
