When was the last time you were fearless in your business and life?
Our guest today puts it this way: “Be fearless when it comes to opportunity or you regret it, and if you do it at least you'll know what's on the other side of fear.”
In episode 1, Victoria Taylor talks with The creator and social media strategist at OnlineDrea.com, Andrea Jones. They talk about their experience and feelings about doing the work, taking the opportunities that come your way and building your own empire whether you expect to or not!
Originally from the US Andrea moved to Vancouver and grow her social media business from the love of teaching what she know on the Savvy Social Podcast, which was nominated for “Best Business Series” at the 2020 Canadian Podcast Awards.
Andréa is also the creator of the Savvy Social School, a digital platform designed to teach its 100+ members (predominantly small business owners) how to implement organic social media strategies. For those businesses seeking a curated, done-for-you approach to growing an engaged online audience, Andréa and her team of seven serve nearly two dozen notable brands across the globe.
Named one of Social Report's top marketers to follow, Andréa can routinely be found speaking at highly-publicized events, including Alt Summit, Podcast Movement, and PodFest. You can find her online at onlinedrea.com or @onlinedrea on Instagram.
She believes "Social media should be fun and my mission is to reduce that overwhelming feeling and build a strategy that works for you."
If there’s one thing to learn from Andrea, it’s this: Be fearless even when fear is an option. Share yourself and your story. People can really relate to what you’re doing when you’re transparent, open, and willing to talk about things you experience. Oh and not to mention her oddly satisfying love story of how she met her husband, hint: It was were you'd least expect!
