How to Align Your Business with Your Superpowers with Renee Brauns (Ep29)

Is your business aligned with your superpowers? If not, get ready for some actionable tips and guidance from Renee Brauns to make that happen.

In today's episode, Renee shares her story about what she did to discover her superpowers and the important work she did to align her business model to them. At times, scarcity fears set in that told her she needed to offer everything and the kitchen sink to everyone, but she didn't listen to that voice. Instead, she stayed true to who she truly is, and the results are amazing!

Renee worked her way up into leadership roles. The logical next step in her career was not a repeat of what she's already done but to create something new based on what makes her unique and all of her experience. Today, she helps association leaders who want personalized guidance and a strategic approach to achieving their goals of membership growth and organizational sustainability.

I love that she opened up about how she pushed through the challenging parts of figuring out her brand positioning and messaging, especially copywriting! Renee shares how we processed those tough phases to create her ideal brand position and messaging.
