Are you the best kept secret in your industry? I have met so many talented entrepreneurs who could truly changes lives of many people … but the people who could benefit can't find them. If this sounds like you, you could have a visibility problem…
Visibility is the glue that holds all other strategies together when it comes to achieving expert status as a business owner. Each strategy gets your name out among other business owners, movers and shakers and potential clients. Being seen goes a long way with the word-of-mouth crowd. The thing that really helped propel my business was using multiple social media outlets. People were saying - "Michele, you are everywhere!"

So far, I have been collecting a lot of "sorry you're not what we're looking for" emails. Sometimes these letters also contain a "but we'll keep your resume on file/please keep coming to us as jobs appear," factor that may or may not be legitimate. I find these letters whether or not they include a "we'll keep your resume," to be kind of disheartening, which I think is not the actual intent of the letters.Read More »
