Is your message ringing crystal clear with the world? Are you communicating the VERY best version of YOU with the world? An impactful message is not only a necessity for your audience, but also for YOU. This week’s podcast guest, Amanda Johnson, joins me to discuss how important it is for impact-driven entrepreneurs to powerfully rewrite their stories and clarify the very core of their message to create a memorable brand that facilitates change.
