Leverage Your Uniqueness for Business, Your Brand, and Beyond—with Joel Wolh

What is your most marketable skill? Can you leverage it to attract more revenue—or even build a brand new business around it?

I am thrilled to share my interview with Joel Wolh, owner of a successful Amazon advertising agency and host of the popular startup-themed podcast, “The Joel Show.

In our interview, Joel shares how he took a skillset that he developed while working for another company and built his own business around it. He explains the importance of building a social presence that establishes yourself as the expert in your niche, and the realities of building a brand on Amazon. Finally, Joel shares how, when he was suspended from LinkedIn and lost all his connections, he pivoted to develop the up-and-coming business networking platform, Bizfluence, and what we can learn from his experience.
