Today I’m talking with the amazing Jaclyn Carlson.
Jac is the founder and CEO of Blog Society and she teaches entrepreneurs how to fall in love with marketing and market their business fearlessly.
We’re talking about everything from storytelling and community building to social media strategy and where to start with marketing your business if it’s feeling scary or hard.
We’re also talking about support networks, self-care and the big shifts that happen when you start your own business. Plus Jac shares the tools she’s used to ditch fear, frustration and comparison, how she’s built an engaged community and why you don’t have to follow the crowd to kick ass in business.
Jac is such an incredible woman and she’s shared so many fantastic pieces of wisdom in today’s episode. I have to admit, I found myself writing notes about how to market my business when I listened back to this episode, so I just know you’re going to love it!
