IBG 40 – Kamila Gornia – Marketing What Makes You Different

At times, introverts feel pressured to act like extroverts for the sake of acceptance. But Kamila Gornia argues that owning what makes you different and marketing those unique qualities provide the key to creating a successful, sustainable business.

Kamila moved to the US from Poland at the age of 13. Desperate to assimilate, she hid the pieces of herself that were not ‘normal,’ and made some poor choices in the name of acceptance and approval. Her introverted tendency to hide and do her own thing pushed against her need to be liked, and Kamila struggled. She started to find her way back to herself in young adulthood as her entrepreneurial spirit led her to start her own photography business as well as a health blog.

Through those projects, Kamila began to recognize her natural affinity for marketing and eventually started her own coaching business. Today she is the Blow Up, Scale Up marketing strategist who helps entrepreneurs grow their businesses and become online leaders. She is passionate about teaching her clients and community how to leverage their own natural abilities and personalities into strategic marketing campaigns.

On this episode, Kamila explains how she generates income via a diverse array of revenue streams. She speaks to the benefits of being curious and self-aware and the risk around getting too comfortable with being alone. Listen in to learn about the email marketing tools available to online entrepreneurs and how to own your uniqueness and build a thriving business!

About the Author Sarah Santacroce

I’ve started this community because I saw introverts with successful online businesses all around me, and I thought it was time to let the world know that introverts have a magic touch when it comes to business, especially an online business. I also wanted to create a safe sanctuary for us introverts to hang out, and be ourselves, in our own gentle and quiet way. I hope you will join us on this journey.
