How to strut your stuff (in a nice way)
Finding ways to strut your stuff politely can be a struggle at times.
One approach can be to seek others who are interested in the same things as you. Having a common interest can help to foster the ideas you want to strut, in an environment where everyone speaks the same language (based on your industry understanding).
If this sort of approach does not suit you, then you can share your thoughts with the world via social media. Practically, this could be in the form of blog posts or other considered content – it could even be writing a book or creating an online program.
Gary Vaynerchuk writes about how you need to give, give and give some more before you ask to receive. Have a read of his book titled Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook: How to tell your Story in a Noisy Social Media World.
Whatever you do, along the way, always be grateful for what others give to you and say thank you as often as you can – continue to share with others and advocate those who you admire.
Before you know it, others will be sharing and advocating you.
