Leadership in Business- The Circle of Influence
How many times are you asked as a solopreneur who is in your circle of influence and how do you show leadership in business? Think for a minute who are you surrounding yourself with? Who do you admire? What books are you reading? There is a quote that great leaders vibrate and resonate with others. What vibration are you giving off? How does your story reach the hearts of those you come in contact with?
My personal message is maximize your message by seeking assistance from the people in your circle of influence who can best help you achieve your goals and objectives. After finding the people that can help you find ways you can help them. By helping others get what they want you will get what you want.
I often use the term network from the heart, which means making it less about you and more about the people you are encountering. When you find something of value to give your circle of influence your circle of influence will help you with leadership in business.
