I talk about tapping into your superpowers all the time to grow your business and make an impact on the world. Cathy Pedrayes tapped into her innate ability as a well-prepared, analytical thinker to make complicated information around cybersecurity super simple and digestible, combined it with her natural warmth and relatability, posted a video to TikTok about what she carries in her first aid kit which got over 2 million views and "The Mom Friend" was born.
Cathy found the intersection of passion, purpose and - this is key - what the world needs and built a platform with over 2.4 million followers.
Also key: Cathy made herself discoverable (in a safe way - we discuss this a lot in the episode) and it didn't take long for
Simon & Schuster to come calling and Cathy is now the author of The Mom Friend Guide to Everyday Safety and Security.
When it comes to creating well-executed content, Cathy shares:
- Listen to your audience
- Good ideas come from everywhere
- If you can batch content - do it!
- Be prepared: Create shot lists + decide what works best for you and resonates with your audience
- Feeling relaxed and enjoying your content + the process makes being consistent easy
