This episode of the Business of Becoming was so much fun!
There are so many misconceptions around PR and media and I thought it would be fun to share some of my recent experiences and offer some tips and guidance around things you can do to start to build a PR portfolio of your own (you may have unknowingly started already!).
Join me and my guest, Chris Winfield, as we talk about how he started his PR agency to help entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and business owners get their message to the masses. There are many examples of how Chris took imperfect action to move his business forward and how each step played a significant role in his success.
We talk about some of the strategies he uses with his clients today so you can get your own portfolio started through messaging and positioning your unique selling point (USP) – both personally and professionally. Chris also shares how to reframe any of the self-doubts or fear you may have about putting yourself out into the world.
And, Chris has a challenge for you!
More About Chris:
Chris Winfield is the co-founder of SuperConnector Media and Founder of Unfair Advantage and columnist for Entrepreneur and INC. Chris was not a born entrepreneur and started with no money and no connections, as many do. As he began to build his portfolio with articles in the New York Times and USA Today, he started to gain credibility and build his business, becoming a sought after resource for others. You can find Chris on Facebook and Instagram.
