How Do You Become a Thought Leader?

If you want to become a thought leader, you need to become an expert in your field. You then need to get your message out so other can hear it. Consider growing your social channels by getting on social media. Follow others in your field and engage them in friendly discussion. Some become a public speaker and present on topics they care about.
You can also speak for free at the local Chamber of Commerce or at a job club. The more knowledge and experience you have, the better your credentials. These credentials will help get you in the door to speak to bigger and better groups. Remember that no one will want to hear you speak or remember your name if they do not get something out of your presentation. With the right information and presentation skills, you can get your message across and eventually become a thought leader in your niche.
