It takes some work to build your community, but in this session I outline 5 actionable tips that can get you going quickly.

About Stephanie Sammons

I share valuable tips and insights for entrepreneurs on how to build your digital influence and achieve personal business success in the digital age. The way I define true success is not just about money. It's about brain health, body health, and business health combined. Fortunately I learned this lesson after leaving my 15-year corporate career and becoming an entrepreneur at 40. It's tough to enjoy the success and wealth you accumulate if you are too stressed out, sick, or tired! I'm also an author and published the #1 Amazon best seller Linked to Influence. LinkedIn is my favorite social media platform for growing your influence!
