How to be authentic, candid, and kind in your business and your content with Kendall Cherry



Tune in as we discuss giving feedback, showing up authentically, and the challenges and resources we all bring to our business. We also dive into a bit of my personal story, the importance of alignment to your business, and the responsibilities of having a team.

My guest is Kendall Cherry, the founder and creative director of The Candid Collective and she's on a mission to create a world that’s more candid and kind. Kendall and her team create copy and marketing content for ALL kinds of businesses (including mine). She’s written for multi-seven figure software companies, media empires with 186k+ email lists, content creators with 2M+ followers. and many other virtual service providers, all while sounding EXACTLY like who she’s writing for. Kendall is also the host of Rebels Get Revenue, a podcast for introverts, visionaries, and rebels WITH a cause who want the inside scoop on all things business without the bullsh*t.
