Favorite Takeaways From This Episode

One of the best ways to develop your brand voice is by knowing the market-putting ideas out there, and seeing how people react.

In developing a brand voice it's important to come up with some qualities to that voice that are flexible, but similar and straightforward that your audience can recognize.

The more consistent you can be with your message, the more it's going to have an impact. 

Building trust with your audience requires a commitment to what you show your audience: being transparent about what goes on behind the scenes, and authentically showing them how you do the work that you do. 

Success comes when you choose to be yourself, and be your own biggest cheerleader. Choosing to follow your passions no matter what people may say or think is a radical choice.

When pivoting in your career, it's important to position yourself as adaptable and flexible, that you can speak the language of the environment that you're entering.

When it comes to your career, it's important to make choices for yourself and trusting what you love to guide you.
