This can work in some cases. But unless you’re Oprah Winfrey or The Rock (even for them too, actually), people aren’t moved by hearing you talk about yourself, no matter how great you are. They may be impressed — but being impressed doesn’t move people to take action

The better way is to talk to people about what they stand to get by listening to / following / buying from you.

People Skills Course, where you’ll learn to communicate, network with and lead people — which means you’ll have the ability to get 20X more accomplished through other people than you could ever do on your own.
