111 - Growing Your Platform & Rockstar Days (w/ Dr. Rob Garcia)

Looking for some rock-solid hacks to grow your audience and platform?

 Dr. Rob Garcia is a high school dropout turned PhD and he’s the owner of SHIFT Advanced Life Design magazine. Dr. Rob spends his time teaching people how to maximize their gifts and become experts in their field.  

I brought Dr. Rob on because he’s passionate about helping people grow their platforms.  He has an impressive background in media and some really great hacks to better leverage media opportunities. 

He took his time to break down the way I was thinking about growing my platform and really got my wheels turning.

"You need to create so much value that the person would be so stupid to turn it down"   -Dr. Rob Garcia

"You need to create so much value that the person would be so stupid to turn it down" -Dr. Rob Garcia

Dr. Rob also talks about transitioning from traditional to “green-beret" thinking, especially when it comes to your objectives from week to week. He gives some nice examples of “green beret” thinking I know you’ll enjoy.
