We’ve all bragged or boasted about one thing or another. It’s human nature. But bragging has negative connotations, and many people, particularly women, are often hesitant to speak positively about their accomplishments.

Why is it that women are so quick to champion for everyone else but themselves?
Cindy Gallop, founder of IfWeRanTheWorld notes, “Most men negotiate without taking things personally; some women do, but on the whole, women have enormous trouble doing that. So the key thing is, this is all business. It’s a business environment; this is a business conversation.
