289. Facing Our Anxieties, Combating Imposter Syndrome, and Building Upon Your Personal Brand with Lisa Ma

The way you present your own personal brand gives your business authenticity, a quality that is becoming more and more celebrated amongst entrepreneurs. 

Join Ronsley Vaz as he talks with some of the most forward-thinking entrepreneurs around the world, and picks their brain about doing what they love, navigating the challenges and anxieties of a self-made business and how to think outside the box.

If you’ve ever wanted to start your own business — or maybe you already have one, and you love listening to like-minded professionals — this podcast is for you.

Our latest episode features Lisa Ma, an event coordinator and graphics designer with Networx Brisbane and Iceberg Events. 

At Bond Appetit we are privileged to be Lisa’s first podcast interview experience. Although she has been approached by others, she chose us and we certainly were graced with what can only be described as an intimate and insightful discussion. 

Ronsley’s talk with Lisa veers towards hitting the more emotional side of entrepreneurship.

They break down the concept of personal branding and why it’s so important, how to use your experiences to help build a business around your beliefs and values.
