Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Before I built my personal brand, I found it hard to get taken seriously. Nobody had heard of me, and I didn’t have the track record or repertoire to fall back on. So I strived hard to build up my social media, get published, and I networked with all the right people.

When on the road to building something great, it can be easy to fall into the trap of self-limiting beliefs. That’s what happened to me, and I constantly had the feeling that there was a ceiling of success over my head. But I managed to break through these feelings and the chains of self-doubt. Only then was I able to achieve the success that I did.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Authority Titans – what should we know?
At Authority Titans, we help our clients elevate their authority, and we do this by establishing and elevating their digital footprint. As a top-rated PR agency in the US, we help people get recognized for their achievement and the hard work they’ve put in to get to where they are now. I’m most proud of the fact that we’re helping people achieve their dreams and change lives every day. We work closely with clients, and we’re happy to be able to say that we’re part of their success.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
The most important characteristic to my success is my optimism. Despite the obstacles and the challenges I’ve had to overcome, I never once lost my positivity that everything would work itself out in the end. In life, one of the biggest saboteurs you can encounter is yourself, and unless you start believing in yourself and your capabilities, you can easily succumb to feelings of self-doubt and step away from the path of success. Being enthusiastic and optimistic about my chances and my goal was exactly what I needed to succeed.
