Hustle Hard: Promoting Yourself & Your Business

It’s all about the hustle! When you run a small business, you wear many hats. You’re in charge of making sure the world knows who you are and what you do. You’re also responsible for figuring out exactly how to do that in a way that serves and protects you, your time, work and energy. In this interactive presentation and discussion, we’ll cover ways you can use personal branding, social media, content, marketing and storytelling to raise your profile, make valuable connections, drive more leads and welcome new customers or clients. We’ll also touch on prioritization, how to use energy management to maximize your productivity and why you need a reverse to-do list.
