In this episode we discuss:
- his thoughts on leadership: “My own understanding of leadership is when one goes out on a mission that is larger than they can achieve alone, and they get a lot of people following and seeing the same vision and those people join in to accomplish that mission.”
- how his understanding of leadership began around 7th grade when he gave his first speech.
- his experience growing up in a town with only one computer, one that was shared with the whole town, and how that led him to open his own computer training center.

- the SaaS conference he has been organizing for the last 5 years.
- his personal goal for the next year, working on influence in government and policies.

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
