Advice for Public Health Professionals:
Quisha says that if it doesn’t scare the crap out of you, you are not doing what you should be doing! It takes so much guts to put on a summit, webinar, event or anything and just hoping people show up, buy tickets, and find it valuable. Do it scared.
Offer what you have to offer to people, get feedback and then continue updating and changing your offerings.
Become a master in one thing. Find something you love doing so much you’d do it for free and then find a way to charge for it.
