Topics Discussed in this Episode
- Owning your authority
"Owning my authority means that I have a full understanding that what I say has value and what I say is going to change somebody's life, somebody's business, somebody's financial standpoint. And it's having confidence, the experience, and the knowledge to say everything that I say with absolute authority."
- Creating "avatars" and buyers personas to niche down your business
- Focusing in on a niche and defining your content
- Developing your voice and your "why"
- Getting to the point where you can stop and strategize
"You're amazing! Your unique voice matters and you can have this confidence in what you're talking about. Even if you don't feel like you have it right now."
"When you put out a lot of little, tiny roots all over the place, it does not build a strong foundation for your business. At any moment, something can come up and it can blow the whole building off the foundation. But if you have 2 or 3 really strong roots that you can dig deep into and put deep down into the ground, then when life happens...[it] won't blow the whole house off the foundation.
