self-pro·mo·tion

noun

  1. the action of promoting or publicizing oneself or one's activities.

If only self-promotion were as simple as my dictionary makes it sound. In real life, self-promotion will be one of the most difficult things you will face. It is hard, make no mistake but you will get better at it because you will practice and I will push you.
