Scared as heck!
Hear this all the time….”Get yourself Out there! Get known! Let others see you! Let them get to know you!” But we are as scared as heck! What if we fail? What if people mock? What if we don’t say the right things on the business proposal, or the employment application? What if we do get the call but unable to give the right responses during the interview exchange? It would certainly be a Mighty fall!
Build Your Personal Brand!
If this resonates with you, here is J. Duncan’s 4 step checklist to help build your brand:
- Contact 10 new people by email, direct message, or phone, and introduce yourself.
- Do the Same with 10 old friends, colleagues, a person you admire to simply reconnect over coffee, or lunch meeting.
- Attend Tradeshow, Conference, or events at least once per month to build your brand, and create new network
- Learn Something New everyday…very important
Getting yourself out there to expand your network is no easy feat. But it’s well worth the effort. It’s a surefire Goal-Setting initiative that will certainly bring you positive result. A mentor or coach can assist.
