The reason that we are talking with Dr. Kelly is that she understands both the importance and value of leadership. In today’s episode, we will talk about why being a successful subscriptionmaker, like being a military leader, is more than just a popularity contest.

Big Takeaway:

Make it easy to digest. Sometimes people can’t connect with difficult things. So it’s up to us as leaders and subscriptionmakers to translate. This doesn’t mean dumb it down. It means finding the essence of the statement and conveying it in language that our listeners can understand.
