Businesspeople often say they’re “man of people” and that “I’m an entrepreneur and I have a lot of self-confidence,” and in the age of the social media age, many are finding it increasingly difficult to hide that they’re not “just another dude.”
But the word “man” is still important in business, and as a “man,” you’re also “a human being,” said Jason St. John, author of the forthcoming book, The Man of Business.
“We’re not just the product and service people,” he said.
“The rest of us are the people that we are, and it’s just a matter of doing your job and being a good human being.”
To that end, there are several common mistakes businesspeople make when trying to advertise their services, St. Johns said.
A common mistake is a lack of self confidence: “The biggest problem with self-promotion is not having the confidence to do the work,” he explained.
“You need to know that you’re doing something that is not just about yourself.
The business needs to know it’s not just a personal statement.”
St. Joesons self-deprecating attitude about the job and his own personal flaws make it hard to avoid self-doubt.
The only solution, St Johns said, is to learn to be self-aware.
But St. Josons book isn’t about self-awareness.
He believes that the best way to learn and improve is to actively participate in your own self-improvement, and he encourages you to “get out there and do what you can to help others get better.”
In his book, St John points to the following tips to help you become a better person: Get a positive self-image, which will help you get better at work.
Learn to be confident and have confidence in yourself.
Learn how to use your own resources to help people improve.
St Johns recommends a series of self management classes and workshops.
And to keep your self-esteem high, St john said, he advises you to have a positive outlook on yourself, and to take on new projects that can help you to better yourself.
