I’m in the interview seat today in this replay of my conversation on the Kajabi Edge Podcast.

I take you through the full evolution of my business over the last 4.5 years, from my start as a freelance social media manager to building a marketing agency to then pivoting to digital courses and programs and now a media company.

We get into advice, finances, and so many other chapters of my journey I’ve never told in a podcast format before.

In this episode, you’ll also get to borrow one of my best revenue growth strategies: leveraging borrowed traffic. This is how you get in front of other people’s audiences on a consistent basis, so sales are not limited to people who already know you.
