• Learn How to Build a Powerful Personal Brand That Will Differentiate You and Allow You To Compete in the Global Marketplace.
  • Personal Branding Weekly – 3 June 2013

    Across the U.S., graduations have been happening here in the U.S.  From college and university graduation ceremonies to high school commencements, the Class of 2013 is taking the next step in their life journey.

    Some already have their next chapter queued up already while some are still searching. Living part time in Las Vegas and Midland, Texas, I’ve seen such a full range of opportunities and employment rates. Vegas is still in recovery from the recession still burdened by a high unemployment rate while Midland touts the lowest unemployment in the nation.

    I often wish we could ship groups of people here to Midland to cover the positions that are available in our area. Drive for just a few minutes in Midland and you see signs like “Pizza Hut paying $25/hour plus gas for drivers”; signs paying $15/hour for bussers; and “Help Wanted” signs all over the city, the newspaper and even the radio station.

    If you are the Class of 2013, have you mapped out what you want to do next?  Do you know the value that you deliver? Have you focused on your own VPs (vision, purpose, values and passions)?

    Last week’s posts can help you in that journey:

    This week – Eric will share tips and techniques for overcoming writer’s block; Henrieta will cover getting rid of those golden handcuffs; Heather will share why Gen Yer’s are winning at personal branding; Elinor details how to make the move from free to fee based business;  and Beth will even delve into starting your own business.

    Listen in to this week’s podcast about determining “your” VPs.
