Are you coming off as brilliant or boring?

How To Market Yourself
Brittney Moffatt

One thing that is challenging for most people to realize is their own self-worth. I know from my own personal experiences that we often feel like we are not capable, not prepared, and not qualified enough to accomplish our goals.

I'm here to first tell you that you are very capable of achieving your goals. No matter what they are, you can do it. I'm sure you hear this a lot, but that's because it's true. If you really want something, the more you believe and work at it, you will achieve it. It may take time, but it will come.

So, now that we've covered that, here are some tips to show everyone else how capable, prepared, and qualified you really are

1. Keep Your Goals in Mind

One thing that helps me know who I am is what goals I have. I often define myself (often too harshly, oops!) on my accomplishments. If you know what your goals in life are, you know a lot about yourself. Let that be what people see when they see you, what you've accomplished and what you plan to!

2. Access What Great Qualities You Have

It doesn't matter what you do or who you are, there is something great about you. It could be something that seems as small as being a good listener. That is a fantastic quality that some people don't have and want to. Remind yourself of the things that make you great!

3.Access What Qualities You Need to Work On

Along with what makes us great, there are some things that make us not so great. They key to assessing your bad qualities is not to obsess on how bad they are. Instead focus on how you can improve them. If you're a procrastinator, try setting a timer when you have something that needs to get done. That's much more productive than just dwelling on your imperfections

4. Show Confidence!

One of the most important things to marketing yourself is to be confident! If you are confident in who you are, it shows. If you are unsure about who you are, it shows. Be confident in your skills, abilities, and qualities. If you don't take yourself seriously, who will?

5. Know What is Important To You

Lastly, you need to know what is important to you. What things do you value as a person? If you know what matters most whether it be family, friends, career, or whatever, that will show within the things you do.

These tips involve a little self-reflection. You may need to take some time to really figure out what you want to project about yourself. But once you do, you can properly market yourself!

Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid,, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).

Chuck And Blair, Blair And Chuck

Why our favorite Gossip Girl couple should not be our relationship goals.


I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.

A letter to my friend I’ll love forever

“It’s sad but sometimes when two people come to the end of the road they have to take different paths”
