Episode 36: From Expert To Influencer with Heather Havenwood

Episode Overview

In today’s information economy what has more value, someone who is an expert on one subject or someone that can influence many people?

Our guest today, Heather Ann Havenwood, argues that the influencer model has surpassed the expert model in it’s ability to establish a brand. How do you establish an identity that attracts people, that moves people, that influences their buying decisions. These are questions that go beyond your instagram following. These are questions about the identity you create for yourself and show to your prospect in every sales situation.

Enjoy this conversation with Heather, who someone once described as a ball busting blonde big boob bitch. A moniker she now proudly wears. You’ve been warned!
