Sometimes the best thing for your business is to ignore what others tell you to do and to simply go with your gut. But, how do you know when those choices are appropriate and when they will cause you problems? How do you find out what you want, what audience to serve and how to do it being yourself? Brian Burkard asked me to come on his show, The Marketer's Mindset, to talk about this and a lot more. Since we had more time than a typical podcast, I was able to share a lot of details and exercises that you can do.
