Do Hard Things

A way to build confidence is to watch yourself do hard things.

So maybe build a video pitch and send it to a human you want to work for.

Even if you fail, you’ll still build confidence, because you had the audacity to DO IT.

What are you waiting for? Life is short. Move past self-doubt, and move past what other people might think.

Go for the gold.

P.S. Also, sending a pitch may seem hard at first, but the more you do it, the easier it gets.

P.P.S. I do this, too. I just pitched myself to talk about the DJH on a big-time podcast, and I got turned down. Still glad I did it.


Another great tool to quickly find email addresses (for decision makers at companies) is through LeadIQ. This tool is commonly used by sales pros. Remember, you are becoming a sales pro with your job hunt! (The product is YOU).
