Ray Higdon is a two-time best-selling author and this year his coaching and training company was listed on the INC 5000 list. You may know of his name as I am always quoting him for his concept around ILT in regards to content creation (Invest Learn Teach). Ray is going to share his content creation and branding formula for dominating any niche and how he went from personal foreclosure to generating over $10 million in revenue the last three years.
