    OMTimes Radio - Voice Rising with host Kara Johnstad
    June 14, 2021, 11 am PST | 2 pm EST | 7 pm GMT | 8 pm CEST

     

    Is it our voice that is the driving force behind creating success and happiness? Each of us carries an influential voice within, but we are often unaware of its impact on our world. Join Voice Visionary Kara Johnstad and New York Times Best-selling author and serial Entrepreneur Trevor Blake in a heartfelt conversation on manifesting abundance magically, creating financial independence, and leading a lifestyle in harmony with our values. Shifting from humble beginnings to building multi-million dollar businesses, Trevor started his first company with just a few hundred dollars. He sold it in 2010 for more than a hundred million. He has since sold two more companies, and he's never hired a single employee or worked more than five hours a day. Trevor has written "Three Simple Steps" and his newest book, "Secrets to a Successful Startup: A Recession-Proof Guide to Starting, Surviving & Thriving in Your Own Venture." Curious about bringing more practical magic into your business and life and using your voice and communication skills to become an ambassador of abundance? Then join us at Voice Rising.
