As a WPO member, you’re among a select group of women entrepreneurs – those with a business over $1M in revenue. You’ve worked hard to get here — built/bought a business, created/refined your products/services, built your clientele, hired and managed a team, maybe even raised outside funding. But what’s next?
Perhaps it’s time to be a thought leader.
Why thought leadership? What I have witnessed, in the more than 10 years I have been working with women just like you, is that thought leadership is the key that unlocks a whole new level of professional accomplishment and achievement as well as career and personal satisfaction. If you’d like to increase your strategic visibility — your visibility and standing with the people who matter, then thought leadership is one of the easiest paths to achieve that.
Thought leaders become rainmakers who attract clients/customers for their services, followers for their blogs, readership for their books, and funders for projects they have underway. Thought leadership leads to exposure for your ideas, status, and authority in your industry, as well as more credibility and trust among those you wish to influence. Thought leaders are quoted, cited, linked to, and sought after for their expertise. And, they have more opportunities to influence and inspire others, bring about meaningful change, and leave a legacy that matters.
As I like to say, thought leadership is the journey from success to significance.
