It’s easy to equate business growth and scaling with losing the personal touch, but that doesn’t have to be the case AT ALL.

In this episode, I’m joined by mindset and messaging mentor Suzy Ashworth and she’s sharing some brilliant ideas on how we can all start growing in a different, less automated way.

(We also have a little rant about things we don’t love in the online world, so stay tuned for that!)

Listen here:

The key takeaways:

💛 The key to becoming the leader of your own destiny is knowing who you are. When you take your first steps in the entrepreneurial world, your head can spin with all with all the things people tell you you “should” be doing, but when you go down the route of following someone else’s strategy word for word, you end up losing yourself.

💛 When you’re really committed to working out who you are, what you stand for, what scares the shit out of you, what motivates you… you can superimpose your self-knowledge on other people’s blueprints. Success leaves clues – you don’t have to reinvent the wheel, but you can make the wheel more YOU.

💛 When it comes to launching, just do it your way! [Suzy shares some of her lowe key but wildly successful tactics from her most recent launch in the episode]

💛 Personalization is the future. Check in with people, and not just when you have something to sell to them. Focus on creating personal moments for your audience, rather than just broadcasting content at them all the time.

💛 No matter what’s going on in your industry (or the world!) there’s still an abundance of opportunity. We just have to be willing to do things differently.

Quotable moments:

The key to becoming the one and only is to become the leader of your own destiny and not a follower of somebody else’s.

When you focus on who you want to be rather than who you are, there can be an epic disconnect.

Stay in your own lane. Eyes down. Bottom up. Do the work.
