What’s a tip or strategy that you would like to share?
  • Life is not about knowing who you were but rather who you will make yourself to be! So market the way you want your business to look in the future as if it is already here.
  • Go ahead and apply to speaking events even if they’re not perfect for you. Event people could be doing multiple bookings which would open opportunities for you or they could add you to an existing speaker lineup for diversity.
