A friend send me this article about how your body language affect the way people perceive you.
The article mentioned "how women struggle with nerves" and that makes me "grrrr".
I believe everyone struggles with nerves - men and women - the difference is how women will handle and react that makes the difference.
It is proven that body language is really powerful on how people will "read" you and understand your attitude in life. So how you sit, stand and speak will say a lot about you and how confident you are and if they will or not take you seriously. So, stand tall, lift your chin, pull your should back, smile!
I have collect some ideas and advice about this and actually, makes me feel really good.
I love the pose "Wonder Woman" or "Power Pose" to boost my confidence and if you try, you will also feel the power.
Another easy one is Smiling to get people comfortable around you. A genuine smile "sells" that you are approachable and trustworthy and when you smile, almost always people smile in return (sometimes changing an emotional state and get everybody in a positive way).

Use you hands to power up your thinking - gesturing helps you with clearer thought.
