Thrive Episode # 63 – “The Power Of Authenticity”

Thrive Episode # 63 – “The Power Of Authenticity” In this episode, I’m talking about why it’s so important to be authentic with your brand. Authenticity is showing up as your true self within your brand. Authenticity is a hot buzzword right now in the coaching industry and a lot of different industries. At times, it is something people throw out when they don’t really mean it. We see this a lot in politics when people tend to portray one side and on the other side there’s something completely different. This is not authenticity. Authenticity is not a convenient thing, either, like when you’re trying to get something and manipulate your audience. Know more about authenticity by listening to or watching this podcast and see how it can help you attract your ideal clients. If you are an entrepreneur, if you are in corporate, if you are an artist or an athlete, if you are anyone who has a dream, or a goal, or a vision, this message is for you.

Thrive Episode # 61 – “Does Your Audience Really Know You?”

Thrive Episode # 61 – “Does Your Audience Really Know You?” Today I want to talk about one of my favorite things and that is branding. It’s one of the core pieces of my business. I’m a personal brand strategist and I’m not just a business coach who learned it along the way. This really is the heart and soul of what I do and even though I talk about being a powerful, profitable speaker, you can’t get on stage, you can’t get on the media, you can’t go on a livestream and give a powerful talk, if you don’t know what your brand is. If you don’t know what your story is, if you don’t know what your mission is, if you don’t know how to communicate your value. Branding is the key foundational piece before anything else goes. Watch or listen to this podcast to learn more about the importance of branding and to learn about an exercise you can do to know, create and improve your brand.
