Everyone knows someone who is guilty of this. We see these people on social media and hear them in person. If you have to tell people how important you are, you’re not. On the other hand, there are ways to promote yourself without looking like a fool.

#4-Hone Your Storytelling

You want your listeners to live the story with you. Don’t reel off your accomplishments. You’ll lose them by the end of the first sentence.

#3-Stop Compliment Fishing

There is nothing worse (or so visible) as those who fake self-deprecation to gain compliments. Instead, show gratitude for what you have.

#2- Substance

If you are talking about your experience, specify how long you’ve been at it. Business people love numbers. You’ll have more credibility if you are specific.

#1- Humility

The best self-promoters are those who let others do it for them.
