WARRIOR OF RESILIENCE

We often believe that if we throw a wide net we’ll catch more fish. This mentality doesn’t actually work in business. If you spread yourself too wide you won’t be able to find the audience you need. You’ll end up having a hard time explaining yourself and your business, and people will not trust that you can do everything you claim.

We are joined on this episode of Creative Warriors by Tamsen Webster, who explains the importance of narrowing your focus. If you can describe who you are and what you do in six words or less you’ll be able to really pull in the audience and customers you want. Once you have them hooked you can really sell them with your elevator pitch, and start to find the results you’re really looking for.
