I would like to introduce you to my friend, Tarah Keech.  I met Tarah when she hired me to help her virtually with her wardrobe.  Like a lot of my clients, Tarah and I forged a bond and have stayed in close contact even though we have never met in person.

A few weeks ago, Tarah told me about a new project she launched called The Real Crew which is a collective of real executive women.  The membership site is for professional women who are done wasting their time, their careers and their lives. These women want to advance and succeed in their career by harnessing the power of applied psychology to create tangible results.

Curious about what Tarah was up to, I jumped on a call with her to discuss her new venture.  As our conversation continued, we went deep into topics into the topics of personal psychology, something I can talk about for hours.  As our chat continued, we came up with the bright idea to actually record our talks about human psychology and workplace success and share them as a video.

Tips for Overcoming Professional Insecurity

A few weeks ago we recorded our first video chat about overcoming professional insecurity.  Wanting to keep it casual and conversational, our talk evolved in a few different directions and we touched on things like happiness, learning how to trust the process of life and going with the flow without being a doormat.

The big takeaway from our video chat is that if you’re not plagued with some level of insecurity you’re not human.  The true key is learning how to act without letting this insecurity stop you.

Tarah and I joked that, in addition to naming our videos “Two Introverts Sitting on the Couch,” we were going to title them, “We Think We’re Interesting” because, truly, while we think our chats are worth sharing with the world, we have no idea how they will land for others.  So we would love to hear what you have to say.  As discussed in our video, our next topic is going to be on receiving and letting the good stuff you put out in the world come back to you.  This is a huge stumbling block of mine so I’m excited to see what Tarah has to say on the topic and how our conversation unfolds.

Have something more to share about how you deal with your own insecurities?  I’d love to hear about them in the comments.
