My Secret is Honesty—Laura Kalbag

I live my life out loud on the web. I broadcast my love, I tell the world when I feel down, and I overreact quickly and loudly, without thinking about the consequences of my actions. But, for all the fights it’s got me into, I believe my honesty built my self-confidence and my business. It’s the key to doing work I love and to building meaningful client relationships.

In this presentation I’ll show you how easy it is to build trust just by being human. You’ll learn:

  • How my openness on the web—about myself and my beliefs—has helped me create working relationships and made my freelance business enjoyable.
  • What’s good to share and what you probably shouldn’t share. (Not what you might expect!)
  • How to identify that inevitable moment when you’ve over-stepped the mark with your honesty.
