  • Personal Branding Weekly – 1 July 2013

    This week kicks-off summer vacation season for so many. We see that here at the Personal Branding Blog with many of the authors taking a hiatus during the summer.  Thankfully, we have many so willing to contribute their time and talent to share their insights in a weekly blog post.

    This week we also focus on freedom. With the July 4th holiday upon us in the U.S., our thoughts are about the freedoms we enjoy that many have sacrificed so greatly for.  Many are asking themselves “Am I making the most of the freedom that many fought to give me?”

    Are you?

    A friend recently lost their battle to cancer. He was young and also a smoker and the cancer was just detected a few short months ago.  Not all of us will have the benefit of knowing the time we will pass yet many will be riddled with questions all themed around “I never got to…..”.

    What have you been “wanting to do”? Who is keeping you from doing it?

    If it’s you, perhaps it’s time for you to take charge of your own freedom and live your life.

    The most of important part of personal branding is extracting or uncovering what your unique brand is. What’s your vision, purpose, values and passion?  After you discover that, my next question is what are you going to do about it?

    It’s great knowledge to know it. But knowledge in and of itself is nothing.  Knowledge is NOT power. Applied knowledge is power.

    Are you taking action on your personal brand?  Listen in for some best practices to uncover and express your brand.
