In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “To me, leadership is to inspire others to get uncomfortable and lead them to take action to make changes in the world.”
  • how it took her a long time to think of herself as a leader because of messaging that says women, and especially women of color, don’t get to be leaders.
  • her experience growing up in culturally-diverse Singapore, and how that has framed her passion for working with underserved people.
  • how she was always a storyteller but didn’t realize there were careers where she could tell stories for a living.
  • her method for teaching her students about privilege by having them do a “privilege walk.”
  • how she intentionally networks and has created intentional communities, especially for people who are considered a minority.

Are you ready to create a Relationship-Based Business Plan that will help you achieve greater impact (and income)? The next cohort for The M.O.R.E. Program for Entrepreneurial Women begins in Spring 2019.

  • You want to have a greater impact and increased income. The problem is that there are so many options for how to build your business that you can feel stuck, overwhelmed, and like you're running out of time.
  • The reason options are overwhelming is that you're looking at them as a series of disconnected steps when — to make the most of your time — you need a strategy that connects only the most important and highest impact ones.
  • Why? Because you know it's true that if you try to do everything, you will accomplish nothing. Which means, to achieve your goal, you have to invest in a strategy to put time on your side.
  • How? This program will help you find the clarity to determine what is the right next step for your business. A book? A podcast? An online course? Masterminds? Speaking on bigger stages?
  • Together we will design a 12-month Relationship-Based Business Plan that will allow you to stack your successes to create momentum and leverage your limited time.
  • Read about this program and then schedule a complimentary 60-minute session to see if it's a good fit. www.robbiesamuels.com/more
