Everyone knows I’m always looking for new ways of leveraging my expertise. Creatives often believe that the way to becoming well known in an industry is to start with creativity and then strategize around that. But what if we have it backwards? What if first we start with the science behind success and then apply the craft? 

Personally, I’m great at creating content but terrible at sharing it. I’ve been open about my resistance to things like SEO and social media. But now is a great time to break those mindset blocks. Let’s begin to reframe our limiting beliefs as liberating truths. I truly want every single one of you heart-centered Creative Warriors to have the tools to step into the light and become well known in all the wonderful things you do. So that’s what I’m hoping my guest today will help with.

Michael Stelzner is the founder of Social Media Examiner, author of the books Launch and Writing White Papers, and the man behind Social Media Marketing World–the industry’s largest conference. He’s also host of the Social Media Marketing podcast and founder of the Social Media Marketing Society.
