60. How to "Toot Your Own Horn" in an Authentic Way with Leadership Expert Mary McGuire
Despite being often naturally skilled leaders, women often limit their leadership potential by refusing to "blow their own trumpet" or "toot their own horn."

It deprives others of benefitting from what you have to offer. But, can you advocate for yourself in a kind and authentic way? Yes! Our leadership expert on today's episode, Mary McGuire, shares actionable tips for gaining clarity on your unique value and then sharing it with others in an authentic way.About Mary: Mary McGuire has built an impressive international career and lifestyle as an expert in the field of transformation and female advancement.
