Nice Girls Brag: Here’s How
If you’re good at what you do, why aren’t you shouting it from the rooftops? Because you’re a woman? That’s whatresearchers have found. Women don’t get ahead because, the pundits say, they don’t know how to speak up about their accomplishments; they’ve been trained to think it is “unladylike” to brag. Well, here’s your chance to drive a stake into the heart of that success-sucking adage.
But you can do it without sounding boastful. Brag without bragging by putting yourself forward as a success story in competitions, such as:
- The Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award
- The Inc. 500/5000 List
