Straight and Curly Ep 39: Putting yourself out there


Carly’s just come out of a long-term writing contract and wants another. I want to do more speaking. How are we going to achieve these goals? By putting ourselves out there. (As opposed to waiting around for people to come knocking on our door.)

In this episode we discuss the things that hold us back from putting ourselves out there and why being Australian can makes things hard in this respect. We then share some examples from both our own lives and those of people in our Straight and Curly Facebook group where putting ourselves out there has paid big dividends.

We finish off by throwing out a challenge for YOU to do the same.
