    Tips & Strategies For Tapping Into Your Authentic Story with Marsha Vanwynsberghe

    Top 3 Takeaways From This Value-Packed Conversation:
    Your story will resonate with the right people at the right time. Regardless of where you are on your journey, you have an opportunity to impact someone who hasn't made it to your level yet, but is making strides to get there. Don't feel you have to reach the highest level of success before you can tell your story...because where you are at this very moment could bring game-changing guidance to someone on the same pathIf you are starting a brand or business and you're stopping because you're afraid of what people in your life today might think of you, you're preventing opportunities to reach people who are meant to be part of your cause and purposeThe biggest reason people fail to bring their authentic story to life is they fear it's not as big, important, traumatic, etc. as someone else's. Your story is YOUR story, meaning it's unique and will serve a purpose for the right people. Don't get fixated on someone's highlight reel when it comes to telling your story______________________

    Here's What Happens When You Fail to Grow Your Personal Brand with Robert White

    Here's What Happens When You Fail to Grow Your Personal Brand with Robert White

    Top 3 Takeaways From This Value-Packed Conversation:
    Once you start getting comfortable with your communication skills on one medium (as a podcast host or guest, for example), those skills will translate to other aspects of your life, both personally and professionally. You'll be able to have deeper, more meaningful conversations with friends, family, colleagues, and clients because you put emphasis on the fundamentals of communication and connectionThe most limiting belief in the world is "I am not enough." You may be able to operate while this belief plays tricks in your mind, but true long-term success will be tough to obtain. As Robert says, "you can have a negative purpose and accomplish a lot...but it will not include joy and fulfillment"For any leader, you manage the conversation or someone else will. The conversations that take place will dictate the culture within your company and if you're not the leader taking control, everything can go the wrong way at a rapid pace______________________

    Top 3 Takeaways From This Value-Packed Conversation:
    Regardless whether you're building your personal brand, a lifestyle brand, a corporate brand, or any other type of brand you can think of, your story will be a driving force that puts you on the map and gives the right people a reason to resonate with you. Don't be afraid to tap into your authenticity and share that story with the volume turned all the way up!Are you surrounding yourself with people who elevate you or people who bring you down? Be aware of who you surround yourself with and be sure your inner circle has your best interest at heart. As the great Jim Rohn once said, "You're the average of the five people you spend the most time with"Don't overcomplicate your story to the point that it stops being a story and it becomes a sales pitch. Sticking to the authenticity of your story will help you keep things succinct and do what it needs to push your brand forward______________________

    "There's Never a Good Excuse to Not Get Started" with Laura Stewart

    "There's Never a Good Excuse to Not Get Started" with Laura Stewart

    Top 3 Takeaways From This Value-Packed Conversation:
    One of the most important aspects of leveraging social media to build your personal brand is being in front of people on a consistent basis. They see your face every day and when they do, it keeps you front of mind when they're looking to make a buying decision in your field of expertiseYour content strategy, regardless of what it is, requires CONSISTENT EFFORT. You can't try something for a couple months and say it doesn't work. You need to pour ample time (well over a year) into a platform on a consistent basis before you can make claims that it "doesn't work for you"The excuses you may have for not posting on social media, starting a podcast, building a brand, whatever it may be...they may stem from some deep-seated issues you don't even realize are present. You need to make your initiatives a priority so you follow through with consistency. As the title of this episode states, "there's never a good excuse for not getting started"______________________

    This Is the Easiest Way to Build a Memorable Customer Experience with Colin Shaw

    This Is the Easiest Way to Build a Memorable Customer Experience with Colin Shaw

    Top 3 Takeaways From This Value-Packed Conversation:
    There is a difference between customer service and customer experience. A customer experience is any time that a customer interacts with your brand at any point (call center, brick and mortar shop, 1:1, billboard, social media, podcasts, etc). Customer service is a part of the overall experience a customer has with your brand"There's only one thing worse than being talked about...and that's not being talked about." --- Oscar Wilde | This means you need to be out in the world talking about your brand and talking about what you do. You have to be consistent in this effort and continue pushing if you expect good things to happenNo matter what industry you're in, you're dealing with people. You have different experiences that are based on how you act as an individual. This drives decision-making on an emotional and psychological level ______________________
