Today’s guest doesn’t waste time, doesn’t mess around, and doesn’t quit until her clients get results.
TV show host and author of “Mingle to Millions” and “Lead or be Led,” she is an all-around business building guerilla marketer and business strategist.
Her entrepreneur journey began when she was eight years old and she has a unique position on how purpose-driven marketing helps her provide clients with a way to win in all markets, including the ultra-competitive ones.
She is an international keynote speaker and has delivered over 1,000 presentations to audiences as large as 30,000 and she loves to share the experience she’s gained working with thousands of people to help them attract clients instead of chasing them. She built her business the exact same way she teaches others to build theirs.

Relationship-Based Business Strategist
Are you ready to create a Relationship-Based Business Plan that will help you achieve greater impact (and income)?
- 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. This 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
