Have you discovered the power of personal branding in business?
A year or so back I had an epiphany moment. It was one of those great big slaps to your soul when you realise you have got to stop playing small in order to become the person you are here on the earth to be. I realised that I had to step up and into my entrepreneurial power and that included branding myself.
I realised that I wasn’t serving myself by being playing small, being quiet and shy in my life and business. After all: fortune favours the bold. That is one of the reasons I chose such a bold pink as one of my colours – pretty hard to miss huh? Nothing shy about it.
Personal branding is not just about slapping up a logo and getting a domain name. It goes deeper than that and it comes from within your heart.
Who you are, your story and the life you live, makes you unique in your own way. All things being equal, you will attract specific people to your business that I wouldn’t attract. It’s all about being you attractive to your ideal customer.
I found these inspiring words that I just had to share with you. My hope is that you will see for yourself that you can stand out in your industry or niche by being your own authentic self.
