Creating Impact as a Female Entrepreneur with Samantha Zink
Listening to Your Inner Voice
Despite the pressure of the fast paced environment of New York’s fashion and PR world, Samantha’s decision to pivot from traditional media to influencer management was less about running from the toxicity and more about running toward her true calling. An epiphany on a New York subway led her to trust her intuition, birthing Zinc Talent.
Breaking Through the Comfort Barrier
Many remain trapped in careers or relationships out of familiarity, too afraid of the unknown to make a change, regardless of how unfulfilling their current situation may be. Samantha encourages us to overcome this comfort barrier and make intentional decisions aligned with our joy and passion.
Building a Soul-Led Business
For Samantha, success in business isn’t just about financial gain but about creating a work environment that resonates with her team’s happiness and well-being.

INSIDE THE ELEVATED LIFE CLUB
We all want to live a more impactful life.
Have you ever wondered why some people are so influential to those they love and serve while others fall flat?
Is it something they’re born with?
Is it something they’ve learned to do?
In almost every interaction of your life, you’re persuading (or being persuaded).
Whether you have a mission, movement, or a motive, you’ll need to know how to influence if you have any chance at succeeding.
You’ll have to master challenging other people’s thinking without coming off offensive.
You’ll also need to control your own internal states so you don’t make critical conversational mistakes.
Understanding the right words to use, the correct attitude to embody, and the mental chatter you’ll need to win people to your ideas is key to being a great leader.
That’s why we’re excited to help you become a persuasion powerhouse in the Influence Masterclass. 🚀
