Met with my boss yesterday to discuss how I could earn more money for the studio. I felt very nervous, because I often don't express myself as well under pressure, and didn't want to feel like I was begging for business. Even after I set up a proposal to help with the inbound marketing in return for training and wages, I still worried I would forget something. I rehearsed out loud, and read over my notes, and perhaps most importantly, practiced speaking slowly and calm, instead of the breakneck speed my voice often rises to when I'm nervous. I felt I came across well, and my boss was very receptive to my ideas. She agreed to the proposal, and I will start a subsidized online course very soon. Yes!!!
