Let’s face it—anyone who has her own business is in sales, but for many of us, marketing ourselves is uncomfortable.  After all, you don’t want to be “pushy,” right?  Unfortunately many of the messages we give ourselves run counter to what we need to be doing to be successful.  Time for a new mindset!

In this interactive and lighthearted presentation you’ll learn how to reframe the way you think about self-promotion and how to avoid sabotaging your efforts.  You’ll also learn:

  • Why women often find it difficult to market themselves
  • Strategies to help your overcome common sales/marketing challenges
  • Small steps that will build your marketing confidence
  • Ways to handle fear and rejection
  • What to do with an out-of-control inner critic when it gets in your way.

Your attitude and approach to sales and marketing may never be the same again!

Judith Balian spent 20 years in corporate sales and marketing before starting her own business, Excoveries, in 2007.  She has worked and consulted for businesses of all types and sizes from Fortune 500 companies to start-ups, private consultants, and individual practitioners.  Nicknamed the “Marketing Shrink” by her clients, Judith holds a masters degree in psychology/counseling from Hofstra University and did post graduate work in expressive arts therapy at Saybook University.  In addition to her marketing work, Judith facilitates classes, workshops, and groups to help people grow personally and professionally.  She is a patent-holding inventor and the author of Your Mind on Marketing: Self-Help for People Who Hate Marketing but Have to Do It Anyway.
