ACT To Live
On this episode of the Act To Live Podcast, Jaime and Scott talk about confidence – a term that is frequently used; however, perhaps not totally understood. The duo talks about their personal definitions and the roles confidence plays in their lives. They also talk about abilities that they feel confident in and those that they do not. Scott and Jaime wrap up the episode by talking a bit about the differences between confidence and self-confidence and the ways in which these two terms may impact/influence each other.
