The Power Of Personal Branding with Amelia Sordell, Founder of Klowt

“When people say that you can’t do something, it’s really because they can’t do it. Don’t stop doing what you want to do because someone told you you can’t, because you can.” 

40 Minute Mentor has reached the halfway point of Series 7 and we’re so excited to welcome an absolute icon in personal branding to this week’s episode – the brilliant Amelia Sordell, Founder of Klowt.  

Klowt is THE personal branding agency on a mission to build entirely authentic personal brands that drive real results – something we’ve had the pleasure of experiencing first-hand here at JBM. Amelia has built a following of over 89k on her own LinkedIn and now her and the team are replicating this success for business leaders worldwide.
