02: "Be Your Own Hype Person" with Toni Purry
In this episode, I talk to Confidence Expert and author of My Hype Book, Toni Purry. We talk about Toni's major confidence loss that came after she realized she was ready to close the door on her PR career of 20 years and how that lack of confidence ultimately lead to her next career path of being an author.
Toni also gives us some fantastic advice on how you can use the "fake it 'till you make it" strategy to be confident when you're anything but, and encourages us to keep track of our wins so it's easier to make it through a loss.
