Thoughts on Personal Branding

Branding Cover

Personal Branding is something that we always take for granted. This year for 2015, I want to start focusing on my personal branding to aspire to get more professional goals and connect with the right people. Most people can agree with me that you spend all year doing so much great work and then when it’s time to sell yourself, you start asking questions. Can you remind me of that I have done?

After researching a lot on personal branding, I come to the realize that overachievers have that characteristic and you should always write it down all of your accomplishments so you do not take for granted all the hard work you have put yourself towards the year. Another tip that I enjoyed when I spend timing creating your personal profile is write your job experiences and your expertise in simple language so anyone with no specific industry can understand what you have done. It is a new year and you should start fulfilling your goals so you can position yourself appropriately. Do you relate to this post? Do you want to share any other tips that have helped you position yourself?

I would love to start those discussions as knowledge exchange is always enriching and opens so many possibilities. Have a great first day back for those back to work and happy 2015. Looking forward to your comments.
