Do you wish to eliminate the NOISE in your business communications? If you own your business, you know how hard it is to get your prospective customer to pay attention… there’s so much that is pulling their eyes and ears away from your product or service offering. And when it comes to the NOISE out there, how do you ensure your brand is part of the solution, not the problem?

My special guest today is communications consultant Sabine Harnau and she’s simplifying how to eliminate NOISE in your business communications. She helps purpose-driven companies like yours to know your message, share it in the right places, and promote your offer, so it truly makes a positive difference in the world. She’s an expert in helping brands convert prospects into paying customers, make an impact and find clarity, consistency and a sense of ease with how you talk to your audience.

Here’s how. 


My special guest today is Sabine Harnau and she is simplifying how to eliminate NOISE in your business communications.

We tackle and simplify all aspects of it, including:

  • Why it’s a good idea to optimize your business communications for conversion…it’s more nuanced than just increasing your sales.
  • How to identify what constitutes as NOISE in your business right now and how to begin to eliminate it
  • What the process is to define your goals & objectives for your brand… why starting with WHO might be better than starting with WHY
  • How to get alignment inside your team on how you explain what your brand is and does
  • …and ultimately, we talked about how there are things that small businesses forget when it comes to business communications vs. bigger corporate brands – what they are and how to avoid the same pitfalls.

All this month, we are focused on the theme of “Refresh,” helping you bring in a new energy and make positive changes in your work or life. Today is a fresh start and a new beginning.

Your 1000 daily choices will help you get there. 

We will explore what that means on every level this month, both personally and professionally.
