5 tips for channeling your inner trust

How do you channel your inner trust?

I channel my inner self-confidence through humor and don’t take everything super seriously. Being younger and more feminine in an older, male-dominated industry, it is my natural instinct to act older than me. However, I often feel safest when opening up to people, being vulnerable, and dropping my guard.

– Naomi Shah, CEO and Founder of Meet Cute

I recognize the signs of a less confident moment: blood flows to the brain, cheeks blush, body temperature rises. Then, like any exciting adventure, I jump off the edge.

—Phyllis Reagin, CEO and Founder of At The Coach’s Table

Through energy, a smile and immersion in work. I’ve learned not to think things over too long. Just go ahead and allow for some mistakes and imperfections in the beginning. It’s the fastest way to learn, and that’s the fastest way to succeed.
