A cracker of a resource ...

Annemarie Cross has written a cracker of a resource in “Industry Thought Leader”.

“Industry Thought Leader” covers this concept in exceptional detail. I love how Annemarie has exposed some of the common misconceptions around podcasting and laid out a clear step by step guide to not only getting started in podcasting, but how to manage the mindset challenges that are very real in the journey that is ahead to becoming highly influential.

As one of Australia’s leading podcasters and influencers Annemarie walks the talk that is laid out in this must read book.
