Favorite Quotes:

“Here’s the thing, most of us aren’t good at everything. So when we’re able to narrow our expertise, it doesn’t just make it easier for people to refer us, it also inherently makes us better at what we do.”

“People think once I’m known as the expert for one thing, I have to be the expert for that forever. That’s not the case at all. Once you are known as an expert for something, people are more likely to see you as an expert with something else.”

“Having a podcast opened up doors that I didn’t realize were going to be so easy to open until after the fact. It allowed me to build an audience of people who immediately saw me as that authority.”
