Updated on: 27 Nov 2015
In my line of work, I'm fortunate to connect with top national movers and shakers inbusiness, thought leadership and the online world. What's even more thrilling to me personally, however, are the rare occasions in which I'm able to meet a renowned business leader who has the true kindness of spirit, generosity and authentic desire to help thousands of people succeed, and develop many different avenues to make that happen (for people with all sizes of budgets and bank accounts.)
Amy Porterfieldis that kind of person. While entrepreneurs around the country depend on Amy Porterfield to show them step-by-step how to increase revenue, drive more online traffic, grow their email list, and strengthen their connection with their target market, she is also a generous individual excited to help friends and colleagues thrive.
Drawing on her years as a content developer and marketer for some the country's top corporations, along with her own experience in building a business from scratch, Amy now provides insights on her proven approach to starting and growing your own online business. With an email list of over 150,000 subscribers, a devoted following on social media, and a hit podcast, Amy is committed to demonstrating that nice girls (and guys) don't have to finish last when it comes to making a living – and a life – that they love.
I caught up with Amy this week to explore her mentor relationship with Marie Forleo and how it changed everything for her.
Kathy Caprino:Amy, what's been the most transformative mentorship relationship you've experienced?
Amy Porterfield:When I worked withTony Robbins, I helped create a product called "The New Money Masters." It was all about internet marketers who were doing amazing things with their online businesses.
There was just one woman in the mix—Marie Forleo. When I learned about Marie, I instantly knew that this was the person I wanted to learn more from. So I started to follow her.
Right at the moment I was leaving Tony Robbins, Marie was offering a mastermind group for entrepreneurial women. It was a paid program (and by paid, I mean A LOT OF MONEY for a girl quitting her 9-5 job!) where we connected with Marie one-on-one, and once a quarter we all met to strategize about our business and get feedback and support from Marie and the group.
