Ep 109 - Are you being too humble? Re-released episode featuring Stephanie Sword-Williams

Uncategorized Aug 29, 2022


If you are more comfortable talking about your team's achievements than your own, then this re-release of episode 28 is a must listen!

I am joined by Stef Sword-Williams, Forbes 30 under 30, TEDx speaker and author of F*ck Being Humble. Stef is on a mission to change the way the world views self-promotion and encourage people to be unapologetically proud of their achievements. 

In this episode, we talk about the fear of sounding stupid, how to get paid what you are worth and how to network in a digital world.


Stef Sword-Williams is an entrepreneur, author, public speaker, community builder and the founder of F*ck Being Humble

Stef is on a mission to change the way the world views self-promotion. Originally started as a side hustle, F*ck Being Humble is now a global consultancy, online community, book and event series that teaches people how to be unapologetically proud of their achievements.

The career development community I'm creating for women is almost ready to pilot. My aim is for it to be an all-in-one solution for female talent development from early careers to senior leaders. To start with it will be a brilliant library of career development resources combined with an online community and spaces for women to come together and support each other.

I will be running a free beta version from 1 October – 31 December 2022 to build the community and refine the idea. To be part of it, you just need to pre-order my book and send a copy of your receipt to [email protected] with the subject line “Pre-Order”, or join my launch book squad!
