TYE 103: Helping People Get Paid to Be ThemselvesSep 25, 2020
Somewhere along the way, so many of us have felt forced into boxes at school or at work. But how do we break free, carve out our niche in life, and thrive along the way? This is what we’re talking about with Blake Fly on today’s episode of The YES Effect Show!
Blake is one of my biggest influences. He helps artists, creatives, entrepreneurs, and other people with a message and an idea. When someone wants to share a speech, present a program, cultivate an online presence, build a community, or lead a mastermind, they can turn to Blake to learn how to impact more people, make more money, and fuel their own families, goals, and dreams.
Blake wasn’t the most popular kid in school, but he learned early on how to cultivate his unique abilities, find his people, and master the art of speaking. As he sees it now, whether he’s delivering keynotes all over the world or creating Zoom events to empower entrepreneurs, nothing about his work has changed since high school - he simply does it at a much larger scale.
I want to remind you that your story matters. Not just the story that you put out into the world, but the internal story about what we believe is possible for ourselves.
