“Don’t be afraid to be different!”
“Just be yourself, and you’ll succeed!”
“Everyone in your industry is so generic – break the mold!”
In the business and marketing space, everywhere you go you see business “thought leaders” shouting this advice from the proverbial rooftops.
Now, here’s the problem… well, besides the fact that it’s incredibly ironic that people who tell you to be different sound (and often look) the same.
The problem is, this advice is all platitudes and no substance. As far as improving your communication and your personal brand as a business owner, it offers you nothing of value. It doesn’t answer the most important question: “How on earth do I do that?”
Today, we want you to learn exactly how to be more fascinating, more memorable, and more you. And to do that, we have invited a very special guest over to Get Genius podcast:
- She became the most award-winning ad copywriter in the world… by age 24.
- Her advertising work is so groundbreaking that it’s exhibited at the Smithsonian Museum of American History.
- She is one of only 172 living members of the Speaker Hall of Fame – the highest award for professional excellence a speaker can get.
- And finally, she knows more about branding than anyone. That’s why she is universally considered the No. 1 brand guru in the world.
Today, it’s our pleasure to bring you this interview with the always brilliant and fascinating Sally Hogshead!
