"The confidence talk is an expectational guide to self assessing and stepping back into your truest most confident self. It is easy to lose sight of yourself as you grind in the workplace to achieve the goals of others. This serves as an unapologetic guide to staying true to you. The activities within the book really help with self evaluation and next steps. A great read and reread as you grow."
