Episode #181: Business Owner vs. Thought Leader

May 12, 2022

Do you want to be a business owner?

Or do you want to be a thought leader?


In this episode of Business of Thinking Big, I sit down with three incredible A-Players graduates — women who made the leap to invest not only their business, but in a journey of discovery that goes far beyond the quick wins.


Since making the decision to go all in on their businesses and participating in A-Players, each of these women has worked their way into becoming a respected thought leader in their niche, creating movements, building courses, launching podcasts, and dramatically increasing their revenue… and it took them far less time than you might think!


This is a must-hear conversation that is packed with insights and tips for growing your own influence. You’ll hear the intimate and unfiltered details of their challenges, their decision-making processes, their strategies, their hard work, and their triumphs. If you’re ready to be inspired, just press play!


In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • The real differences between being a business owner and a thought leader, and how to build a more confident mindset
  • How each guest stepped outside their comfort zone in order to grow their business — and how they benefitted
  • The link between your authority and your pricing, and how to build your own revenue-boosting, dream-client-attracting thought leadership!

Chris Swail is a life and health coach who works with people who feel stuck in their patterns.
