How to Be the Most Confident Person At The Table

In: Finding Your Voice

When somebody doesn't buy from you, which are you thinking?

Man, I'm a loser” 

or

Man, they're a loser.” 

Getting cocksure is the very first order of business.

And if you don't feel sure of yourself, you know what you need? Not more clients.

You need to sit your ass down, read 100 books, grovel for the chance to prove yourself, weasel your way into opportunities with people who ARE good, yank yourself kicking and screaming out of your fucking comfort zone, experiment, keep promises to yourself, pick ONE THING and become a leading expert in it, talk about it, write about it, think about it, dream about it, bore the neighbors with it, doodle fucking hearts around it, tell everybody you can about it, believe it, fight for it, fight with it, cry over it, caress it, lose sleep over it, hate it, love it, and represent it so hard until it becomes your one and only truth.

And then the next time someone doesn't want to buy from you, you know what you think?

Ha. Ha. 

That's when you know you're good.

And quite serendipitously, that's when the world will, too.

Sometimes, the shit hits the fan. Sometimes, you find yourself living out of your car, storing all of your toiletries in an oversize red purse, lodging sweatshirts in between head rests and sunroof panels to block the windows so you can sleep, explaining to unsympathetic credit card companies that you can’t pay your $41 minimum […]

Your Hatred is Wisdom

Nov 7, 2015

What is it? The thing you sighed with relief about this morning? The thing you didn’t have to do on a Saturday? The thing you exhaled about? (And maybe even shimmied around the room naked over. With this You Tube video playing. And at least two neighbors cursing you to hell.) That’s the thing.  Pay very close […]

“I don’t feel confident in my work.”

Oct 29, 2015

Are you squinting your eyes at the screen trying to decide if this describes you or not? (Of course you are, you’re probably reading this on an iPhone the size of my elbow.) It’s kind of an ugly characterization—nobody wants to admit to feeling less than confident in what you’re doing. And yet, I’ve got […]

When You Feel Worthy of Being Seen…It Shows

Jun 11, 2016

  Let me tell you what: American women may have Victoria’s Secret, but Italian women have another secret altogether. You know it by the way she holds her head a little higher than yours, eyes on fire, gliding down the god damn sidewalk as if her and Mother Nature were tag teaming. It is not just […]

The Surprising Reason Why I Decided to Buy My Own (GASP!) Apartment—As an Independent Woman With Her Own Money and Her Own Mind

Mar 8, 2019

“WINNER, WINNER! OFFER ACCEPTED!!!” That’s what the subject line read as I cozied up with a glass of red wine, last night, nervously awaiting the news. And when the email came through? I almost choked. “Omg, I have tears in my eyes!” I wrote in response. (Along with a shit ton of other capital letters […]
