Women! (and men) Toot Your Horns!!

Women,  don’t wait! Let people know your vision, so they can help you be included at the top……
If you are aware of your strengths, and have a vision for your  future,, you’re ready to take action. (If not, my previous post will help guide you ) Too often, however, women skip an important step: telling the right people! They believe that knowing what they want is enough, and that if they work hard enough, someone is bound to notice.
Let go of that idea. Determine who needs to know your aspirations, and who can help you attain them. Be as specific as possible about what kind of help you need, as well as how your career growth will benefit your entire organization. See yourself as a marketing and PR person for your skills and experience.
Alan Weiss, one of my mentors, says, “If you don’t toot your own horn, there won’t be any music.” This is the time for your symphony! Make a list of who needs to know you, and who you need to know. Next to each name, write down why that person is important to your success, and create a plan to interact with each one. Strike up the band—and get your show on the road.
