Personal branding is about managing your name — even if you don’t own a business — in a world of misinformation, disinformation, and semi-permanent Google records. Going on a date? Chances are that your “blind” date has Googled your name. Going to a job interview? Ditto. ~Tim Ferriss
Your Brand It’s You
That cross-trainer you’re wearing; one look at the distinctive swoosh on the side tells everyone who’s got you branded. That coffee travel mug you’re carrying…ah, you’re a Starbucks woman! Your T-shirt with the distinctive Champion “C” on the sleeve, the blue jeans with the prominent Levi’s rivets, your fountain pen with the maker’s symbol crafted into the end” … and we could go on, and on. ~Brand Guru, Tom Peters.
My appetite whet from Tom Peter’s insight, I reflected on branding which tells the experience you have when doing business with others. As I reflect on my own brand, my vision becomes clear. To motivate and inspire others to go after their dreams. The impetus is for them to believe; to achieve; and to succeed.
Even though I have studied leadership and success at the post graduate level, and subsequently published books on Success Strategies, there still needs to be beauty and style in the platform used to interact with others. The intention is to fuel the traction to build trust and solidify the brand’s reputation for its own success. Through motivation, leadership, inspiration and success, I write to empower your success as an individual, new author or new entrepreneur.
