Margie will be speaking about:
Courage and Confidence
Margie talks about how as women we are women and we should not disconnect from who we are. Margie opens up about how in the 80’s where she was from, it wasn’t ‘the thing’ to go to university so it was a bold move to go, but she did it anyway.. She talks about how courage is a muscle and a skill, and just like learning the piano or French, it can be learnt. In order to be come more confident she suggest taking one small step today, another tomorrow, and eventually we will empower ourselves and take away power that fear has on us.
Overcoming Habit and Procrastination
Margie explains that her view on procrastinating is when people want something but are ultimately not committed enough. Margie advises not to wait until you’re ready, because you could be waiting forever. Margie talks about how there’s truth in the phrase “fake it till you make it” and how you should jump right in and give yourself permission to not be a perfectionist.
