Key Takeaways:

  • Business cards are not the best way to get business. Handing one out to somebody in the hopes that they’re going to follow up with you is not the ideal way to go. It’s your responsibility to follow up with those prospects and not the other way around.
  • You need somebody you can talk to, someone who can take an overview of your business, look at the things you’re doing, and give you direction.
  • Growing your business is a lot about listening to your audience, listening to your community, and finding what they really want and what they’re struggling with.
  • It’s important that you are an integrity yourself. This will attract people to you.

Action Step:

  • Be clear on what you want from life, on what you want in a career, and show up for yourself.
  • Hire a coach to help you.
  • Find your niche.
