“To be successful in the market today, you must possess 3 strategic assets: a magnetic message; a marketable product; and, a meaningful platform.”
Thank you for checking out my home on the web. My name is Dayo Samuel, and I’m excited to have you here. Read on to find out why this blog exists, who I am and what you’re about to gain.
I believe leaders like yourself who want make more impact and have more influence, who already have content, but like several others, you need the right platform to spread your message, sell your product and grow your business or calling.
What I do here on Audacity2Lead, is to help you get focused, get started and be impactful. My blog and podcast are two of the ways I bring this solution to the world.
I am passionate about seeing people rise up and lead, especially in the area of their calling and life task. But I also understand that many are stumped without having very clear directions.
As a coach, I thrive on assisting entrepreneurial thought leaders who have a message to share with the world think through leadership, administration, strategy and best practices.
I delight in teaching thought leaders how to launch platforms that build their authority, multiply their influence and generate income using the best internet marketing ideas in very amazing ways you may never have thought of.
Before I go on, I am Dayo Samuel Ayodele, I host #Audacity2Lead podcast which has been ranked as Top 3 on iTunes New & Noteworthy for 2 categories.
I have been a featured guest podcaster and contributor to a couple of online media, among which is Social Media Week, Natural Born Coaches Podcast, Dreamers Podcast, Dream Life Podcast, and Brand You Podcast and a couple of others.
I founded Audacity2Lead after having ran a successful leadership-focused youth ministry called Young & Strong from 2010 to 2014. In fact, Audacity2Lead started 3 months prior to leaving my paid employment.
I am a teacher-trainer by calling, a brand and media consultant by training, and a strategic leadership coach.
I have a passion for knowledge sharing, with a growing interest in sales funnel development, business automation and personal branding.
I’m the creator of the Luminary Platform Map, a 5-Step System for launching a profitable platform that builds your authority, multiply your influence, and generate income. Author of Blog With Excellence: Start, Grow & Monetize Your Blog in 10 Days or Less.
If I’m to talk about school, well, I studied Graphic Design from the department of Industrial Design of the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Nigeria.
I actually believe you – or anyone at that – can do much more than what any school can teach you.
Anyway, Let Me Continue.
I am a certified leadership trainer, having undergone four different programs, business school training, and several online courses. Will it interest you to know I’m a certified digital marketer?
Let me talk a little about that. In 2007, I took the first step online and created a blog for myself. As at 2008, I had created 8 different blogs. But like many others, I didn’t really have a solid strategy behind my online presence. I was just the jack of plenty rants.
However, all of that changed in 2012 when I came in contact with a virtual mentor who I began to follow carefully.
Through his products, programs and courses, I was able to find that the best way for me to reach more people was for me to leverage the internet and new media channels with a very clear message.
That was some huge inspiration for me, but I was stuck at that point because still I couldn’t figure out the right channels to get on or some other overwhelming part you already know 🙂
Along the journey, I began to learn and pay attention to things, and that was how I was able to distill my knowledge into a succinctly clear path that I now share with others who want to do the same thing. This is what laid the foundation for the Luminary Platform Map and everything hanging around it.
Things I Do…
Asides being the host of the popular Audacity2Lead podcast, Twitter Hangouts, and trainings, I’m the publisher of Living Letters, a faith based monthly newsletter under the umbrella of Young & Strong reaching over 2,000 young people in 8 states in Nigeria.
Through coaching, seminars, workshops, podcast, and the blog, I train and motivate leaders all around the world to become more intentional in their leadership. This is why on Audacity2Lead, I help you get focused, get started, and be impactful.
