Today is a big day. Meetings and more meetings. I like to text and email, don’t love face to face. What is that about? I am in a business that face to face is important. I get that. But in my personal life, I like to hide. There I said it. The worst part of a gig is after when I need to talk to everyone.
The anxiety that comes up for me is palatable. I think it holds me back, because it is all about networking. I just hate small talk, HATE IT!!! Feigning interest, smiling, feels so inauthentic.
But it is a part of the biz, so how can I get over this fear and move forward? My career depends on it.
