Traci's Takeaways

Pay attention to your words. Filler words and statements like “I feel like…” I just need a minute of your time” and “In my opinion…” can diminish the value of what you’re saying!

Don’t let negative self talk keep you from talking with confidence. There is a big difference between being humble and over apologizing.
