Authority Positioning: How to become the leader in your niche by Leonardo Habegger

Find Your Niche

I had an awesome conversation with a coworker today about getting her idea about how she could impact the world with her passion.

As I was sharing my great news of actually launching this podcast and submitting to itunes, we got to talking about how to get started with her Side Hustle and getting the ideas focused on one thing at a time.

I totally related to her almost schizophrenic explanation of what she was passionate about. Like most of us I’m sure, have a million and one ideas and people we want to help.


Riches are in the Niches

We have all probably heard this or some version of it. Unless you are Walmart, it doesn’t profit us to try to be everything for everybody.


Decide on one person you want to help. What are they struggling with that you know how to fix, cope , educate …


How can you best help them?

>Train- teaching program,

> coach/ mentor- show and run the play

> inspire- give words of affirmation

>service- therapy ( physical, mental)


What is the best way to communicate the help?


> Videos

> Podcast



Advice to my friend…

You work  40, 50 , 60 hours every week to see your Employer’s vision and mission succeed. Don’t you have 2 hours a week to devote to your own Entrepreneurial Legacy? Absolutely!

Take the next day off you have and make a date with yourself to focus solely on what you want to see this business look like.

Take the first step to seeing your dream of Business ownership.

I’m not telling you anything that I haven’t personally dealt with in my own Small Business, and still do sometimes. I promise you as you begin to move like we talked about in Just Start  you will see amazing transformation and growth with your Side Hustle.



Key Take aways

  • Don’t try to be everything for everybody
  • Devote at least 2 hours a week to your Business
  • Take the first step

My Conference tips actually worked!


So Ladies take my word for it these tips will help you Rock your next conference should you heed my advice. My first conference was great but I could have gotten more out of the experience if I was a little better prepared. What’s the saying you just don’t know what you don’t know…

I implemented these tips at my 2nd big baller Podcast Movement 15 Conference in Fort Worth Texas last week and for the most part they helped tremendously. I will say, adding out of state prep was much more daunting. Knowing you can’t just run home if you forgot anything really put the pressure on making sure everything was on point.

Overall the prep was all worth it. The only things I added to this list was to print out all your flight, hotel, rental car and sightseeing information you may need for where you are going.

Oh and also be prepared for parking fees if you rent a car.

I will post all the pics from PM15 on the Facebook page if you wanna see me in action.




Key Take aways


  • Take a backup battery
  • Eat a good breakfast
  • Wear comfy shoes or bring backups
  • Business cards are not dead
  • Plan your schedule
  • Invest in a good camera
  • Go early and Network
  • Be camera ready
  • Prepare a question to ask each presenter
