Not long ago, Jennifer went to a conference in Australia, where
she was a chairperson and keynote speaker. During the event, two
young women approached Jennifer with the desire to improve their
careers, but they didn’t know where to go to get the support they
needed. This inspired today’s episode. If you’re stuck where you
are in your career, you don’t want to miss this one.
- Jennifer shares the story of the two young women. One referred

- Action 2: Create systems for success and automate them! There’s

with it. Jennifer shares a few ‘recipes’ to use that will help you
make an impact, almost on autopilot.
- Action 3: Jennifer shares a personal tip, something she learned
to do when she was first growing her network. She identified people
she wanted a relationship and started studying their work: books,
blogs, podcasts, videos, even their websites. Essentially, she got
to know them through their work. What she did next is a prime
example of how to have a meaningful impact on others with a
simple, daily routine.
