This couldn't be farther from the truth - it's a bad excuse for not taking the action you need to BECOME an influencer with an audience!
When I started my group, no one knew who I was, what I was all about, & very few people wanted to work with me. I came up out of nowhere and started focusing on growing my audience with a group. That focus paid off big time!
I started getting more sales, more influence, building an email list for free, and even getting speaking gigs and media appearances left and right thanks to growing my group so rapidly. But I'm not the only one...
The BEST example of someone who completely blew up their audience and influence from out of nowhere is one of my top students - Mitchell Weijerman.
He runs the Digital Nomad Accelerator group, and in less than 5 months he grew it organically from 0 > over 13,000 members. Pretty cool huh?
Before, he was trying to figure out how to sell tickets for his event using FB ads and affiliates - and now he has a hungry audience begging to sign up for his next events and they're joining his course left and right too.
