How to Carve Your Own Path to Entpreneurship by Building Your Personal Brand on LinkedIn with Steven Arthur George

0 Comments

“I’ve always wanted to be out on my own, always wanted to make my own path if you will. But until I got into a space where I really could connect with something I was passionate about, then came the confidence,” says Steven Arthur George, founder of SAG Advisory Services. In this episode, Steven talks about his journey of finding the thing and space where he connected and felt confident to focus on to build his brand and a consultancy firm.

Steven’s journey has started in the financial industry then moved to the cannabis space for more than a decade which he landed through LinkedIn. But while being employed, Steven explained that he always had this drive in him – the drive to want to do something more, and write his own path.

Tune into this week’s episode of The Business of You for a conversation with host Michelle Griffin and special guest Steve Arthur George about the transition from the corporate world to entrepreneurship and thought leadership, how he found his confidence to go out on his own and write his own path, and how he started building his own personal brand as himself, literally – Steven Arthur George.
