Susan is the only person I've met who, like me, gave 500+ free talks before realizing this could be a potential revenue stream and career path. We're soul sister speakers with a lot of good karma. :)

On today's installment of the Guest Mentor Summer Series, I interview Susan Lindner. Susan is a Cultural Anthropologist, Brand Marketer, and Disruptor. Susan got her start as an AIDS educator in the brothels of Thailand, helping turn prostitutes into entrepreneurs. Today, she’s the founder of Emerging Media, a branding, PR and marketing agency dedicated to helping tech founders reach their finish lines. Her award-winning strategies have gotten 10 companies acquired, and she is now hell bent on sharing them with the world. Susan speaks to startups, innovators, and top executives from 60+ countries at GE, PWC, Deutsche Bank, Capital One and at global conferences, consulates and trade organizations about strategic storytelling, mastering the message and the media for maximum impact.

On today's episode, we spend a lot of time on how Susan has built her speaking business, how she manages it, and how she continues to grow her speaking opportunities. She also shares why you should use a virtual assistant and how having one can help you.

Do you consider yourself to be a bombshell? In episode two of the Guest Mentors Summer Series, Amber Hurdle will redefine what a "bombshell" is and why you want to be one. 

Amber Hurdle, author and speaker, creates content-rich experiences to sharpen personal, employer and business brands. A former teen mom turned powerhouse business woman, Amber learned to clearly articulate her own value, eventually enabling her to work with international celebrities and Fortune 100 companies alike. Her clients include large brands such as FedEx Ground, Mars, Inc., and Marriott, as well as small businesses that want to play big. Recognized among the “Top 40 Under 40” by the Nashville Business Journal, she is also a top certified advisor for the Fascination Advantage® personality assessment and is certified in the Change Cycle®. Known for her straight shooting Velvet Machete™ and warm personality, Amber never fails to motivate professionals to up their game in business and in life.

Amber will teach you how to:

  • eliminate excuses and take action
  • find your motivation to accomplish your goals
  • decide who you want to be today and then be that person
  • use your network to build your speaking business early on
  • know who you help, what you help them do, and how you help them
