Healthy self-promotion is not arrogance, ego, or misrepresentation.
It is the ability and willingness to share what you offer to the marketplace in an honest and straightforward way.
Healthy promotion of a business, product, person, or service is the courage to put yourself out there, knowing that others who may be:
- less successful,
- less talented and
- less confident
to share their success may disparage you without regard for truth, reality, or the consequences of misrepresentation.
I know many speakers, authors and business leaders who are better and smarter than they promote. They live in a world of humility, fairness, and integrity.
And I know many who mislead their audiences, and the marketplace with subversiveness in the hope of achieving greater results than would otherwise be due to their words and actions.
Yes, Self-Promotion – promotion in general - can be either good or bad.
But in the end, the market will decide whether your self-promotion was grounded in integrity or selfishness. ##
