How to Discover Your Uniqueness and Gain the Recognition You Deserve with Rory Vaden

When I started my career years ago, I made a promise to God that if I got to where I wanted I would always share as much as I could of the journey it took to get there. I would do this as a give back – a true testament to pave the way for others.

This podcast episode is just that – it’s a recording of a session I had with Rory Vaden, Co-Founder of the Brand Builders Group, and the work we’re doing together to define my brand even further.

It’s raw, it’s vulnerable, and it’s not all tied up in a cute bow. I cringe when I think about how awkward it is.

This episode isn’t just about me though – in fact, it’s quite the opposite. Rory breaks down a very specific framework that anyone can use as they build their business and expand their impact and influence.
