Comment on Confidence Can Be Learned by ZJ Thorne.
In some avenues, my self-confidence is innate. Everywhere else, I’ve had to practice and fake until I’m there. I had my first client at my LLC last summer and I had to walk a tight-rope of showing my client that I was able to handle their business and also letting them know that I’m not a braggadocio. (I learned how to handle their business roughly a day before they came in every time). Now I’ve had a few more clients and my confidence has grown from practice and knowledge. Until I knew what I was 100% certain, I would practice my client meeting alone and with my girlfriend. It helped so much. I even wrote down everything I needed to say.
