Sonya Keenan – How to beat implementation paralysis

Sonya Keenan

Sonya Keenan is a doer. She has created multiple businesses, run million dollar marketing budgets for big corporates and turned around the fate of numerous small businesses.

She says the single biggest barrier to success is a failure to implement. We spend so much time acquiring knowledge that we often get overwhelmed and paralysed into a cycle of started, but not finished, projects.

There are more than 73 online tactics and strategies you can use to promote your business from building a content engine, to podcasts, emails and messenger. Chances are you’ve probably got at least a few setup – but I bet you can count on one hand the bridges you finished building!

Do you spend more time “upgrading”, learning and installing new tools rather than making sales? Sonya will show you how to flip the switch and beat your implementation paralysis with a tried and tested method.
