Why would anyone want to hear what I’ve got to say? What if I look silly? We’re talking Self-Doubt and how to overcome it, and connect online.
Show Guest – Ashley Hurley
I am a Professional Development Specialist. I work primarily with teachers of grades 6-12 and my area of focus is literacy.
I LOVE satiating my curiosity by reading, writing, connecting, making, & teaching. I have an amazing family, incredible friends, a cool little dog, & out of this world three-legged cat.
You’ve got something to say but you’re nervous. Your stomach’s in knots and your head’s filled with endless chatter:
- Why would anyone want to hear what I’ve got to say?
- What if they don’t like my ideas?
- Even worse what if no-one reads or listens – and my ideas just disappear into the vortex?
- How do we navigate the fears and self-doubt relating to sharing our ideas online?
- How do we overcome the procrastination, take that step and just ship it – letting our ideas out into the world?
Plus – We’re thinking on our feet with the Lightning Round with Risk, Passion and Curiosity up for scrutiny. And to bring us home – A Not To Be Missed Book about How to Think Creatively.
