EP 201


In this episode of the Mindset and Action podcast, business coach Libby Langley offers a transparent look at the intersection of self-promotion and self-discovery. This conversation explores the internal battles that entrepreneurs face, especially when marketing themselves becomes a necessity in the competitive business world. Langley's personal narrative of her diagnosis with autism in her 40s brings a fresh perspective to the discussion, providing solace and understanding to those who may share similar experiences.

Marketing oneself is an integral part of entrepreneurship, yet it is a task that many find daunting. Libby Langley understands this all too well. Having navigated the complex terrain of self-promotion for over a decade, she shares her intimate battle with the fear of judgment. The revelation that she is autistic has not only provided her with clarity but also the compassion needed to approach her unique challenges with a new lens. Her journey emphasizes the importance of understanding one's own mental blocks to find a marketing strategy that resonates with one's authentic self.
