One of the most important points that jumped out from our recent conversation with Angie Lee was that it took her two and a half to three years to even get started and see traction in her business. If you are not willing to dedicate yourself to the mission of building your brand for at least five years, don’t bother getting started at all, because this is a long game. And we don’t mean this to be a discouraging fact but something that motivates you to keep going when it is tough.
Our interview with Angie Lee will serve to show that pushing forward is worth the while and that it is possible to grow a successful personal brand when you follow the right strategies. Angie also reminds us not to tell people what we do but how we can help them, demonstrating that you are a problem-solver who will support them in achieving their goals. It is all about phrasing things correctly and shifting the focus away from hard-core selling to developing a genuine connection. Tuning into our interview with Angie, listeners will also hear the sobering truth about social media and SEO.
