Beyond Boundaries: Redefining Event Dynamics with Sondra Shannon

Unveiling Entrepreneurial Journeys of Visionaries Scaling to New Heights in Business

Welcome to the Business Amplified Podcast

The purpose of the Business Amplified podcast is to speak with other entrepreneurial guests on their journey of gaining more exposure and thereby drastically increasing their bottom line. We feel that an entrepreneur (regardless if you are brand new or been in business for years) must start doing things differently and more in the public eye in order for people to know who they are and that is where greater successes occur.
