Our SHINE train is moving along - This week, we asked Marketing Expert - Leon Streete, a few questions. He shared some insight on what it means to SHINE.
As we count down to the Shine Legacy Award, we continue our Interview Series featuring the amazing global influencers who are speaking and sharing their brilliance at the LEAP AND SHINE CONFERENCE 2020 coming up in London, UK on February 21-22. Enjoy!
1. When you think of the word SHINE what first comes to your mind? And what does "Shining" look like from your Point Of View (POV)?
When I think of the word SHINE, what it means to me is to let your true self shine through your soul.
"Shining, For me is where you bring the right vibe to all situations in life and business." - Leon Streete
2. What would you say is your Shine Factor?
My shine factor is my ability to help my clients to see their own vision with such clarity that they are clear on the next steps in growing their business.
3. What are your thoughts about Mentorship and Influence, do you think there is a connection?
Mentorship is intrinsic to the success of any real entrepreneur. The idea of doing it alone is a myth.
"Just look at some of the famed historical leaders of our time, you often find they had a mentor or coach." - Leon Streete
Richard Branson = Freddie Laker
Oprah Winfrey = Maya Angelou
Mark Zuckerberg = Steve Jobs
"Influence for me is all about how much you're willing to put yourself out into the market, in order to hold influence in the first place because if no one knows about you, your influence is limited, at best." - Leon Streete
As to whether there is a connection, I guess it could be argued either way, but for me, there is a clear distinction between the two.
4. Mentorship is a two-way relationship between the Mentor and the Mentee. Can you share two qualities you think mentees should exhibit to get the best out of their mentors?
Mentees should be coachable because usually, the reason they choose a mentor or coach is that they are there to learn something they do not know or cannot see about themselves. They should be willing to act, once they are shown the way - they must take the action on their journey.
5. Can you think of one specific moment in which you dulled your shine and how you got your lustre/sparkle back?
One moment when I dulled my shine was when my first business failed. I became depressed, as I couldn't shake the emotional failure and challenges I faced. The way I got it back was to get over my ego and allow my true purpose to shine through one day at a time.
6. If you could BRAG about one particular Shine Moment in your career, or business what would it be?
Helping my clients to generate over £4 million in sales in the past 3 years from my marketing advice.
7. You are one of the Global Speakers at the February 2020 Leap and SHINE Conference in London. What should attendees expect from you at the conference?
At the conference, I will bring the real shine energy to those who are thinking about being in business or already in business, which is "how to connect their Vision to their Marketing Strategy and achieve bigger growth in 2020". My talk will be based on real experiences with actionable takeaways. See you there!
