Stacy Tuschl went to college with plans to join the working work once she graduated.

However, fate changed her mind when she offered dance classes in her backyard while she was in college.

As her business grew tremendously after graduation, Stacy knew this was her calling.

Since then, she has created her facebook community called She’s Building Her Empire, which helps women entrepreneurs to achieve 6-figure status while staying true to their purpose.

Her podcast, “She’s Building Her Empire” is listened to in about 70 countries around the world.

Stacy’s book, “Is Your Business Worth Saving” received over 13,000 downloads within 24 hours and is an Amazon International Best-Seller.

Why live streaming is important

-Online adults aged 18-34 are most likely follow a brand via social networking-Marketing Sherpa.

Among the above statistics, Twitter users are about 350 million.

You can interact with them on a daily basis and they will notice your giving spirit.

That is how entrepreneurs like Josh Elledge, founder of Upend PR got to be on media outlets across the country.

Side note: Diane Gottsman is in my mind the best teacher on how to be a giver because she shares advice on etiquette that has made her a media resource.
