THE VALUE OF YOU AND YOUR STORY
 
What a beautiful spring day we had for our April meeting, and the Ohio Village was a perfect venue to enjoy it! Messaging maestro Gina Molinari (also affectionately known as Gina Mo) took some time to chat with us about “The Value of You and Your Story.”

Why is it important to get personal?

  • It shows your value and gives you an edge over competitors
  • The human connection builds bonds and trust
  • Connects you to your ideal customers and how to market to them
  • Takes the pressure off the sale

5 key elements to never forget!

  1. Know your why
  2. Know your ideal audience
  3. Pinpoint your superpowers
  4. Share (and PRACTICE) your origin story
  5. Make sure you have a strategy to execute
