When you’re not used to being in a professional setting all the time, introducing yourself can be AWKWARD. It’s surprisingly difficult knowing what to say and what not to say about yourself when you want to leave the best impression possible.

Do I ever have GREAT news for you! I have a strategy that has not only helped me build amazing professional relationships over the years but has actually landed me new clients as well. All because of a simple introduction.

The best part is, anyone can do this. And the sooner you start, the sooner you’ll master your own intro!

I created this video to share some tried-and-true techniques on how to introduce yourself in a way that only sets you up for success in the professional world. I have YEARS of professional experience to back me up on this, so all you have to do is sit back and take it in.

We’ll go over:

  • The best way to introduce yourself when you’re just too nervous
  • How much (or little) to say about yourself
  • What information you should and shouldn’t share
  • How to eliminate the awkwardness of an introduction!

Next time you’re at a meeting or see a new face in the office, you won’t even think twice about walking up to them and saying hello.

I can’t wait to hear how many great connections you make by using these tips to introduce yourself. Seriously, I am SO excited to share this with you.

Instead of listening to me go on about how excited I am, why don’t we head over to the video? I’ll chat with you there!


Thanks For Sharing!
