Oh, my goodness, thanks so much for having me. Glad to be here.

Jeremy Weisz 3:33

I want to talk first about the power of authority, and some of your favorite parts of that book, because I listened to it. It’s fantastic. And you get done listening to that, and you don’t want to write a book. So you have to have your head checked. But um, talk about some of your favorite parts of power of authority.

Michelle Prince 3:53

Yeah, so you know, I’ve been helping people tell their story for years now. 12 years I’ve been in business, but I love helping business owners, entrepreneurs, founders, leaders basically realize the power that they have in their story. And, you know, it’s all based on the premise that we do do business with those we know like and trust. And one of the best ways for your clients to get to know you is to know your backstory, I would say it’s the backstory, because, you know, I do believe people want to know, what we what we do, what we’ve accomplished, you know, what level of success we have. But honestly, I think more importantly, they want to know, how did you get there? And because they’re asking for themselves, because they want to get there too. And so I think once a leader understands the power that they have, that not only will your story, impact people and do all that it’s actually going to elevate you differentiate you bring you to a level of platform that you may not be able to get without it. And so it and it’s everything they already know. And to your point, once you read it if you don’t think you have a story after reading that book, then I don’t know what to tell you.
