When Growing a Pair Isn’t an Option!


Women are often given well-intended advice about how to cope in the professional world: ‘Just grow a pair of…’; or ‘Man-Up’; or ‘Just act like one of the guys’.

But, most of the time this well meaning advice is not helpful. If we as women knew the ‘how’ then we would not be challenged by navigating a ‘man’s world’.

braggingforwomen® will talk about what to do in situations when you feel vulnerable and how to navigate scenarios where you need to put yourself forward.

You will learn tips to communicate more powerful and up your personal presence!
