Foundation for a good Personal Brand:
- People Skills
Figure out what your Passion is!
As I have a view followers on Twitter ;-), I sometimes get asked what should I tweet about?
The answer is: “Find out what your Passion is and you will know what to tweet about!”
How to determine what your
Personal Brand is:
What is your purpose in life?
What would you like to be known as?
What makes you happiest?
Hint: when was the last time you felt 100% focused, alive & undistracted?)
You have to figure out what you feel best when you doing … Do some self reflexion!
Ignore “being realistic” or “responsible” – what do you REALLY want?
“Do not wish to be anything but what you are …
but try to be that perfectly!”
- What do they think you do best?
- How do they perceive you? Your greatest strengths, greatest weaknesses?
- Be prepared to hear stuff you don’t want to hear.
- Establish commonalities – are you hearing the same thing from multiple people?
- Know when – and what – to ignore people.
PERCEPTION IS CRUCIAL
Do you like the Personal Brand you’re creating?
