  • Personal Branding Weekly – Happy Birthday Edition

    Yesterday, I celebrated my birthday. I enjoyed the time with family and friends. And, also used the moment to reflect on what worked last year and what I’m looking forward to in the coming year.

    Along with all the usual Groundhog Day happenings, the excitement of Super Bowl was a new twist for the day along with the sad news of the passing of the actor, Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    All of those events brought me to my question for the week – are you moving forward with your brand?

    Stand still?

    There’s no standing still with your brand. [tweet this]

    But, like the movie Groundhog Day, there are those whose brand is “running in circles” with every day repeating the day before.

         1. Do you know where you’ve come from and how much you’ve advanced in your brand?

    Do you have a plan on how you would like to move forward? Do you know the next step on the road to success with your brand?

    Know your brand advocates?

    In sports, who your fans and super fans are pretty clear cut. If only it was that way for personal brands or even small business brands.

         2. Have you identified your brand advocates? Do you have a system and plan to stay connect and in relationship with them?

    If it all ended today?

    What would be left undone if it all ended today?  Make a list.

         3. Are any of those items on your list right now? Are they a part of your goals and objectives?

    Three simple questions. Yet, they are often easier said than done.  Good luck!

    Our hope is this week’s articles, are also of help to you as you discover, communicate and evaluate your personal brand.
