The nice people at Virgin Media Pioneers asked me for some thoughts (in video) on the need for entrepreneurs to be confident, or at least appear confident.
“Authority is 20% given, 80% taken” Peter Ueberoth. Your confidence is a big part in getting others to treat you as a leader, to accept you as an authority. I posted a couple of weeks ago a little article on How to be more Confident and this video (here on the blog) is a summary of that post.
Over to you
Do you ever “pretend” to be more confident that you really feel inside? Did it work? Are there any other routes to confidence? How about lots of practice?
