One of the hardest things in building an online brand is not knowing how to get from where you are right now to where you know you have the potential to go.

Imagine if you had a guide—a roadmap that could help you get from here to there. Now you do, and it’s free.

One of my team members was telling me about a biography of the essayist Montaigne. It’s called How to Live by Sarah Bakewell, and it was a big bestseller a few years ago. But here’s what’s amazing. It all started as a fluke.
In the back of the book, Bakewell says she discovered Montaigne because she was traveling in Europe and the only thing she could find on the train in English was a copy of his Essays. This is going to be terrible, she thought. But no. Not only was the book highly entertaining, it also created the possibility for a whole new direction in her life.
If you’re looking to skyrocket your impact, it’s imperative to identify your Value Gap and close it fast. And here’s the good news: My free new video series will show you exactly how.

The good news is that there are eight simple tweaks you can make that will close this gap, allow you to be heard, and create the impact your message deserves.

If you’ve got something to say or sell, you’ve probably thought about launching a blog or podcast, advertising on Facebook or Twitter, and investigating marketing and email strategies.
Or maybe you’re further along and weighing even bigger investments of time and money, but you’re unsure about how to proceed and in what direction.
