EPISODE 162: GROW YOUR BUSINESS BY TEACHING OTHERS WHAT YOU KNOW, WITH LINDSAY PADILLA
The guest on today's show is Lindsay Padilla. Lindsay, who has two graduate degrees, used to work as a University Professor and is now an online Teaching and Learning Consultant. Last April, Lindsay was at lunch with some big influencers, after attending Todd Herman's Ninety Day Year.
She was helping one of them with an upcoming launch and the person was so impressed with what Lindsay had to offer that she wanted to know why she wasn't teaching this to other people. This made so much sense to Lindsay and she realized then that she actually had many things to offer to people that could really benefit them, as entrepreneurs.
On today's show, Lindsay talks to Stacy about her online business and she also shares some incredibly simple, yet effective ways that you can attract more people, streamline your content, find your niche and really stand out, with online coaching. Listen in today and discover more ways to keep your business growing.
