About This Episode 

Are you an author who wants to leverage your book(s) to impact the world & build your brand influence significantly?
As we delve further into the 21st century, we're seeing that the traditional ways of establishing influence and authority are evolving. 

An essential part of this evolution is writing a book.

However, in 2023, simply writing a book is just the beginning.  Being an author comes with a particular perception shift. When you write a book, you're seen as an expert, someone who has taken the time and effort to thoroughly research a topic and provide insightful commentary.

This, in turn, builds credibility and respect.

A book also significantly enhances your professional profile. It's a tangible piece of evidence of your knowledge, your passion, and your commitment to your field. It helps you stand out from the crowd and can open new doors for opportunities.

Today, I share an interview I did with Jodie Branson, an Amazon best-selling author, publisher, and owner of Effective Talent Strategies and Influence Network Media.

Jodie shares valuable insights and strategies for transforming from being an author to an influencer. She emphasizes the importance of clearly understanding your message, audience, and brand to leverage your book for increased visibility and impact.

Writing a book is just the first step in building influence. It's a powerful tool, but it's how you leverage it that truly counts. It’s about creating connections, engaging with your audience, and maintaining a strong online presence.
