How can you reach your highest potential in speaking and in your business? What does it take to be the best you can be?
For many years, I felt that I had to learn and master anything I came across in my businesses, from coding and SEO to marketing and PR to graphic design, accounting, and contracts. Each of these areas are specialized and require not only certain skills but also constant upkeep. Sounds pretty crazy, right? But, I know many of you are trying to do this all as well.
The downside is that this is costing us – and in more ways than you may think.
In this episode, my guest Belinda Brown, an executive and leadership coach, shares how she helps her clients, many of whom are executives at large companies, reach their potential as individuals, as teams, and as an organization.
We take the three key areas Belinda focuses on – Uniqueness, Potential, and Equity – and apply it to you as a speaker and entrepreneur.
