Ep56: Building Authority Online with Molly Trotter

Mar 30, 2021

How are you building your authority as a coach in the online world? Do you find yourself overwhelmed and scared of being you in front of a camera and getting yourself out there?

We are stoked to have Molly Trotter in this special podcast to talk about building authority online. Molly is passionate about helping entrepreneurs and small businesses build, launch, and scale their businesses so they can get their messages out in a major way. After she left the news industry, she found her calling in the world of digital marketing helping coaches and consultants through on-camera coaching plus increasing their influence and conversions through customs strategies to grow their business online with the Dream Factory team.

In this podcast, she will share how she got into the coaching space from being a news anchor. She will share her perspectives on how to build authority and having an authentic presence in an online space that’s full of fluff. She will also get into the common problems of creating authority online, why some people find it hard to be themselves in front of the camera, and how to build your confidence.

Are you ready to be THE authority figure in your space? Then make sure you listen to this inspiring new episode!
