Episode 109: Why You Need a Signature Message

Oct 10, 2022

Do you ever wonder why you should only have one signature message? Is it okay if you have more than one? The number of messages you want is entirely up to you, but as you know, crafting and building a message can take days, weeks, and even months. Too many messages at once can get tricky…
Instead of focusing on too many directions, you should have a clear message and point of view. In this episode, I explain why I teach, starting with one signature message to act as your foundation.
Highlights from this episode include:
  • The importance of a signature message (1:10)
  • Why I learned to focus on one message (2:10)
  • What happened next (4:50)
  • Start with one (7:15)
  • Beyond the first message (8:37)
  • Generalist vs. specialist (9:52)
  • Choosing the right message (12:59)
