Think up front.

Every decision has a shape.

Recognize failure and the fear of failure.

There is always uncertainty.

Get comfortable with ambiguity, and use the power of problem solving.

Know what you value and talk about it.

#VBBRadio Audience Question: What is the role of personal branding (of a leader) in marketing positioning and business growth?

Rejection is great! It is as great as acceptance.

Test outside of yourself – get another set of eyes and different experiences.

Your message must resonate with others.

Live Audience Question: Don’t get me wrong I know there are no shortcuts to becoming an industry leader, but where should I start?

Choose one message and approach for your story.

It is BOLD to recognize to add value and be a thought leader as well as a strong representative for your company.

BONUS! #VBBRadio Audience Question: I hate creating my own content, but I can see myself being a podcast guest or something similar, what is the best way to approach and pitch.
