The word brand may stand out as a cooperate or stands out for world class people but a brand is within us all, carry yourself as a brand, whatever you want to achieve and present in life ,start carrying yourself like one, the business we aspire to have or careers. A personal brand is like a garden. Once you lay the groundwork and plant the seeds, you'll be in a great position to eventually reap the benefits. However, it still takes time and dedication to nurture and expand your creation.
Have the right attitude; anywhere you go in the streets, saloon or spa, lunch, school or work, always have the right attitude especially if your meeting new people, having a bad day or in a bad mood, shouldn’t make you grumpy. Every time you meet and interact with new people, best advised to be in your best behavior and best dressed. It’s about bringing your heart, soul and head, your passions and promise to your career. Build a Brand You that reflects all that and great things will happen.
Walk your character ; dress and walk your character, carry yourself as a brand, have you ever met certain people in your life and just by looking at them you know who they are, you can tell that’s a bank clerk, makeup artist, politician, fashion stylist, a lawyer or an artist. It’s how they carry themselves, you can be that person you aspire to become at a certain time it depends on how hard you work to get there on time, early or late. You want to become a makeup artist how it makes you accountable, establishes your reputation, relevance and maintains your message.
Network; meet people, use social media platforms to engage and getting close to potential people that will link you closer to your career, get connections with the right people attend professional networking events to meet influencers in your area, and in the online world, engage in community discussions whenever you can. The more opportunities you have to meet people and talk, the better, also consider looking for speaking events around your area, which will give you the opportunity to demonstrate your expertise while connecting with new audiences. The more you give yourself with consistency and hard work people will begin to see you, any chance you get to speak, share an idea or have conversations around potential people use that platform to brand yourself, do not be the fly on the wall but rather the portrait on the wall.
Use social media. The easiest way to know someone these days is by quickly going through their social media accounts, it’s true they are created for fun, socializing, posting random daily crazy stuffs but people have learned to see the bigger picture through these platforms, are you a model, do you wish to become one then start creating your career on social media, do you wish to become a motivational speaker, let’s see your you tube videos, and motivating graphics in your social media accounts. I did an interview once and I was asked to write my Instagram name, how you present yourself inn social media speaks a lot than walking in an office well dressed, so invest in that. Avoid scandals in social media or leaking photos and videos that will haunt you forever as they say, whatever goes on the internet never dies.
