I've never been an overly confident person. I'm not assertive either. I tend to be a wallflower.
It is a trait I am working to change.
Confidence is contagious and it changes the perception people receive when they see you. People respect people who are assertive, confident, and motivated.
In business it is a skill you need. You cannot sell a product or yourself if you back off from standing up for your needs. It tells people you know what you are doing.
Successful business people know how to exude confidence and assert themselves in every pitch.
What are some traits you feel are necessary in business? Do you have what you need for success? I know I'm building to that point today.
