Episode 206 – Playing It Big & The Keys To Confidence with Heather Monahan

Episode Overview

How do people see you, both good and bad? How do you view yourself? Would we take more risks, and shoot for higher goals if we would see the strengths in ourselves that others see? Balancing perception kicks off the conversation today with best-selling author X2, Top 50 Keynote Speaker in the World 2022, Podcast Host of Creating Confidence, and TedX speaker.

Heather tells her story about her rise and fall in the corporate world, what she learned, the work she put in to build herself back up, and reward that came afterward because she put her confidence into action. The story doesn’t end there. She discusses the daunting task of writing and self-publishing her first book, which became a bestseller, and then the even more difficult task of writing her second book, finding an agent, and winning over a publisher, and the amazing story of Heather getting her own large platform podcast.

They cover so many other topics including – how to balance career and being a parent, how leaders can foster confidence, the only people you should take advice from, why confidence strategies are more helpful than sales strategies, the importance of community, and a sneak peek at Heather’s future products including the title of her upcoming book.

More About Susanna

After graduating from Cambridge University in Music and Education, Susanna took her first sales role selling advertising space on websites.

She’s always been intrigued by the unfair negative stigma associated with sales and the way that after their initial excitement to work in sales, people will do everything they can to avoid actual prospecting.

With 14 years of experience in recruitment, Susanna challenges this mindset through her successful business sourcing sales professionals into recruitment roles.

Susanna decided to become a Sales Gravy Master Trainer because Sales Gravy’s vision matches her own beliefs and values.

She is committed to providing excellence and dedication to all of her trainees so that they can achieve their goals and succeed in sales
