Ep 37: Two Ways To Leverage Your Influence

For the last year, I’ve been focused on teaching women how to leverage their influence to monetize their brand. 

What it comes down to is I believe your brand influence is made up of your layers and layers of pivots, life cycles, lessons, and experiences. When you communicate this you create influence.

Meaning the more consistently you voice your message – the more influence you create.

And the more people you can empower with your influence.

Today on this episode I want to share with you TWO ways that I teach business builders to leverage their influence no matter what kind of business they are building or have yet to start creating.

Ep 26: 3 Ways To Create A More Impactful Brand Online

When I reflect on my own journey of how I’ve used and reacted to social media I always come back to the idea that many see success on social media as having high engagement ratings.
 
* We seek validation that what we are doing is making an impact.
* That the time we are spending on writing captions and blog posts and podcasts is worth it.
* That someone out there is paying attention to our message.
