LONGER VERSION: Hi, I'm Byron. I'm a former World Class athlete turned certified career coach. Since 2002, through speaking, training, and coaching programs I've been helping leaders use authority marketing to turn their experience and subject matter expertise into educational curriculum, group coaching programs, and mentoring masterminds.
In 1996 I came within .3 of a second of becoming the first African American to represent the USA in the Olympics in the sport of swimming. Again in 2000 I trained, I tried and I fell short of making the Olympic team. The good news was, by that point I knew that I wanted to make professional speaking and life coaching my life's work.
I leverage my platform as a professional athlete and hit the corporate speaking circuit. While professional speaking was (and still is) awesome, I realized my real passion fell more in line with coaching people to take action. So I sought out the top executive and life coaches at the time - studying under and becoming certified through the work of the late great Thomas Leonard (the Godfather of the life coaching movement).
Over the years, while I was effective at increasing my skill set at the "practice of coaching" I found myself in the perpetual hours for dollars, feast or famine roller coaster and realized I needed to improve my skills just as much in the sales and marketing process of my coaching practice.
The challenge for me was, while I didn't think sales and marketing was a bad thing, the traditional, old school tactics of "always be closing" made me feel inauthentic and not true to who I was. As a result, I struggled. And several times had to take on "day jobs" because I didn't have an effective system for consistently filling my practice.
That's when I discovered what is now known as authority marketing. Authority marketing is the process of leveraging your strengths, experiences, and subject matter expertise to effectively position yourself in the marketplace as "the obvious choice."
I desired an effective, and reliable marketing system that wasn't salesy and allowed clients to almost sell themselves on my offers.
When you are seen as an authority in your niche attracting and enrolling your ideal clients become a whole lot easier and more fun. In fact, when you know how to position yourself as a trusted authority and install the right automated funnels into your business model you no longer feel like you have to chase clients, but instead it seems like clients are chasing you.
Once I became aware of this approach to marketing I became a dedicated student in how authority marketing worked and how to best fit it into my own practice. Over the past 5 years now and counting, I get the pleasure of sharing and teaching other professionals how to embed effective authority marketing strategies into their practice so that attracting, enrolling, and serving more clients becomes automatic.
End result? More and more speakers, coaches, and consultants every year are now breaking free from the feast or famine roller coaster and enjoying more freedom, income, and impact through the great work that they do.
That's why I founded the Authority Labs, and share effective strategies on this site that actually work in the real world.
I do my best work with purpose driven people who want to build their personal brand and platform, become an industry thought leader, and run higher end coaching & mentoring programs and masterminds.
My greatest impact is in helping the top subject matter experts get their message to the masses and fill their courses, programs, & masterminds.
