About the guest:    

Becky Robinson is the entrepreneur and founder/CEO of Weaving Influence, Inc., an online influence building company. She works with authors and thought leaders to help them show up online in the same powerful ways they show up in real life.

Becky is also a mom to three wonderful daughters. She has been married since 1993. Work, family, and faith are her three top priorities, not necessarily in that order.

Becky lives in Lambertville, Michigan, across the border from Toledo, Ohio. She works both in Weaving Influence’s local office and remotely from her home office. Working from a home office allows her the ability to be present with her daughters. Weaving Influence exists as a core employee team and a virtual, dispersed team. Becky’s job is to mobilize her team as a unified whole to serve their clients with consistent excellence.
