“Become omnipresent,” he said. “Can you imagine how much financial success you would have if you, your brand and your company could be known everywhere all the time? Now is the time to push the needle and create 10 times the action around who you are and what you do. Creating that celebrity status, I am an expert in what I do, [you can] use this to start dominating your marketplace. These steps will help capture the attention of potential clients. A great example is Donald Trump or Mark Cuban. You may or may not like them, but you know who they are, as they both are well-known everywhere and dominate their respective areas.”
