In this episode of Adventures in Visibility, I’m pleased to welcome Ande Lyons, one of the most genuinely enthusiastic people I’ve met. Her positive vibe and attitude make me smile every time I see a post, a picture or a comment from her in my social stream.
Ande brings that same mindset and positivity to her clients as she helps entrepreneurial adventurers navigate business start up and the strategies and skills required for business success. And that’s where this Adventure in Visibility takes us … on a journey to explore the winning strategies you need to cultivate to create a successful online presence and business.
In this show, Ande and I discuss the business strategies necessary for entrepreneurial adventurers to succeed:
- Why mindset matters and how to manage yours
- How to build your credibility
- Establishing your online presence
- What you can do to create lots of visibility
- And much, much more!
Check out the event page for comments, questions and photos.
