In This Episode of #TheOpenMike

Hey and welcome to #TheOpenMike

On today’s episode, I'm excited to be covering the awesome topic of personal branding and influencers. Specifically Why you need to ditch the act to reveal your whole self to build a personal brand that no one can compete with.

Today's influencer guest is Leonard Kim a Tedx Keynote speaker and Managing Partner at Influence Tree a leading company in building personal brands.

This subject is so exciting for me personally as someone who is building his own influencer status through our growth engine community and my personal brand of TheOpenMike, I can honestly say it is for sure no easy ride and definitely needs a tonne of work.

If you are in for a get rich quick scheme, this is not the journey, but for those who have value to bring to the world, and are prepared to put in the work its extremely rewarding, I can vouch for that for sure, the highlight of my week is working in our growth engine community and hosting awesome guest influencers such as Leonard on TheOpenMike Podcast.

Welcome to the show Leonard - I appreciate you taking time from your busy schedule to speak with me and the audience today and sharing your expertise all the way from Los Angeles.

How are you today?

'The reality is many influencers and so-called online gurus are living a lie, they operate in fear of being found out that the life they portray is different to the life they have' - Mike Midgley
