Want to be influential?
Influence is a hot topic. It’s a buzzword that we hear and read a lot about. We have books, podcasts, articles, and seminars on influence. Not a day goes by that we don’t see influencers on our social media platforms, TV, and advertisements. But what exactly does it mean to be influential, and what does it mean for you?
In today’s episode, we not only chat through influence, but we also chat through a critical part of the influence equation this is often left out in discussions around influence: You can’t be influential without first being credible.
Specifically, I share 3 ways to start building your credibility in your vocational calling, including:
💥 How to be excellent
💥 The importance of being skilled in your work
💥 What it means to be known
Friends, If you want to be influential, choose to be credible first. God has given you a sphere of influence, and I believe God has called each of us to be influential for the right reasons. When you are influential, you have the opportunity to impact and influence culture through your work and leadership.
