EP 9: John Smith - Honest Brand Building With The Mortgage Smith
“If you want to push to be a leader and attract people, first of all, you can't be a leader unless someone's following you… to attract people and to lead them, you have to have a powerful message, you have to have a powerful brand, and you have to be very committed to it.” -John Smith
If the content you show the world is meant to tell potential clients who you are, how do you decide what to show them? Do you keep the focus on your business and what it can do for them, do you focus on your personality, or do you develop a different personality entirely? It may surprise you, but the best way to establish yourself as a leader is to simply be yourself.
