EP 3. KIM DOYAL: The Highway Out Of The Herd
In case you haven’t heard, content truly is queen (or king ;)). The whole world is hungry for things to read, watch, play…you name it, and you know what that means: there’s always room for more brilliant minds in the industry.
Here comes the challenging part – once you break IN to the industry, you’ll find yourself racing to break OUT from the pack as so many others around you make their plans for World Domination off the back of a very similar blueprint.
So now for the million-dollar question: how exactly can we stand out just enough to turn a relatively common skillset into an envy-inducing career? There’s no need to dye your hair pink or drive a fancy car, although the latter might just come with the territory.
Kim Doyal might have a few ideas.
Formerly known as The WordPress Chick, Kim stands out for all the right reasons, and she’s no one-trick pony. In fact, she does such a wide range of things that you might wonder whether she ever actually sleeps, but like the anchor in an ocean of lists and to-dos, everything comes back to her passion for content marketing.
These days, Kim spends her time working with agency owners to develop and implement a content strategy with the pull power to gather a herd of hungry followers all on its own.
In this episode of Profit and Impact, Kim talks Nev through the value of making others feel better, being gentle with yourself on the road to greatness, and the magic of Harry Potter.
So what’s this conversation REALLY about?
- Going all-in on your dreams
- How to satisfy both your passion and your paycheck
- The problem with a herd mentality
- Why you shouldn’t overrate your “nuisance factor”
Why you should listen
Kim Doyal is the ultimate mobile mentor. Whether you are a marketing expert, a high school student, a top CEO, or almost anyone in between, Kim’s words will make you feel like part of her own herd (in a good way, of course).
You can quote me on that…
“You’re not going to get good at something by not doing it.” – Kim Doyal
“I like to think I’m a very positive person, but I’m constantly beating myself up and when I can step out of that I do great things.” – Nev Harris
