Hope you are having a GREAT week! Hang in there Spring Break is almost here.
This week I’d like to talk about personal branding. First let’s discuss what that means. In a nutshell, what you see and know of yourself should equal what people see and know of you.
Do people sometimes describe you as quiet, shy, serious or unapproachable and you know that is not who you are? This means, that who you are is not what people see; clearly these two do not equate. I believe that we all not only want to be who we truly are, but we want everyone to know who we are. The only way for that to happen is if we take a close look at ourselves and determine how we can show who we are from the inside out.
Here are a few things to think about when developing your brand:
· What are your core values and principals? What do you believe in? What are the standards you hold yourself to?
· What are your areas of interest, your hobbies? What are you passionate about?
· What is your vision for yourself? What and who do you want to be in life? What are the goals you’ve set for yourself?
· What are your strengths and best attributes? What makes you unique and different?
Give these things some thought and you will begin to see who you are for yourself and develop your brand. The next step is to believe in yourself and your brand, then live that every day. Once you know your brand people will have no choice but to see it.
Please write and tell me about your brand and how you’ve developed it. Your post could help someone else do the same. I look forward to hearing from you, and remember….
Always do you,
