Purposeful and courageous marketing is more important than ever. Yet, it’s more than simply creating buzzworthy campaigns.

Founder of Empowered Introverts
When you hear “introvert” do you immediately think, “shy, quiet, likes to be alone”? If you do, you’re not alone. But there’s so much more to the story. In fact, there are a lot of misconceptions around introverted personalities and how they uniquely engage with the world and with others. Daisy Simonis, Founder of Empowered Introverts, is on a mission to help introverts tap into their superpowers on their way to impacting the workforce — and the world — in ways they are uniquely wired to. But, this impact can only come as introverts confidently step into being their unique version of themselves. One interaction at a time.

His focus on intuition and mindfulness has enabled him to not only endure but excel in one of the most mentally-taxing games of strategy on the planet. All with a real, raw, and exceedingly positive presence.
