Wow, your hair looks fantastic today!
Your business is really taking off!
I love your shoes!
Your work is beautiful!
If I said this to you, face-to-face, how would you react?
If you're like most women, you will probably deflect, laugh it off, or flat out argue with me (and studies show that if you're a man, or are already pretty confident, you probably won’t.)
This week's #BizConfidenceChallenge is simple, but SO HARD for many of us: Accept all compliments.
It's not as easy as it sounds, but it's sooooo important for personal AND professional reasons!
In this episode, we'll discuss:
- How to accept a compliment
- How NOT accepting a compliment undermines your reputation
- How accepting compliments builds your confidence
- Complimentary language + gender
- Amy Schumer on Women + Compliments (Warning: Uncensored)
- Reframing Compliments
- How to Graciously Accept Compliments
- Do you need to spend more time spotting and celebrating your successes? We do this every week inside the Starship. It only opens once a quarter, but you can learn more (and sign up to be notified when it opens next) right here: https://taraswiger.com/starshipbiz

The Biz Confidence Challenge is LIVE once again (if you haven't joined us, it's not too late – sign up at the bottom of this post!). The Challenge is a 6-week practice in building confidence in yourself, so you can move forward in your business. Each week I send one challenge for you to do and then share on Instagram (with the hashtag #bizconfidencechallenge), then I explain how that challenge will build your confidence in the next episode of the podcast, and then we dive even deeper and I'll share my own answer to the challenge + your reactions + I answer your questions in a weekly live webinar, each Thursday.
