Pull It Together ....

Branding & Development

YOU are a brand whether you manage it or not. Everywhere. You. Go. Decisions are made about who you are and how you consistently present yourself … online and off. Contrary to popular belief, your personal brand doesn’t start or end with a title, logo, website or business card. Personal branding is about deciding to take an active role in the direction of your life goals, career endeavors or business. You benefit from creating or rebranding yourself because it allows you to self-manage your life and stop depending on others to do it for you. A developed personal brand helps you make the most of what you’ve got to offer.

Let it all hang out .. your personality that is!



People remember your personality, they connect with you because of it and zero in on how you make them feel and associate your product or service with that memory.

Make people feel good, powerful, important and you build loyalty.

Make people feel like $%@! and …. Well, you get the point!  It really IS that simple.

Until then …

Have you added THIS to your google search?

Google Search


When was the last time that you’ve googled yourself or your business name? If your response is 3 months or more, just know that I’m cringing.  If you’re response is never .. well, I need to go and pull myself together while you read the rest of this short but needed information.

I can’t share the following with my new clients enough.  If you’re online anywhere be aware, the following is beneficial regardless of your endeavors.

It’s important to not only search your personal and business name periodically, but also your most used hashtags because:

  • You want to make sure the word association is what you want your identity to be associated with.  You see a new tag like #LongHairDontCare or #BossBabe, not that these are bad but as it trickles down, does the current use of your hashtag use depict who you are?
  • I just had a new client find out her business name was used via hashtags to promote something she had no knowledge of, gave no expressed permission for, or profited from.  If you’re in business for yourself, this is a major NO NO!  Learn how to copyright and protect your name(s) early on so that once your likeness has gained popularity it’s not open season on you and constant damage control.

Once you’re associated with it, and it’s out there you can’t take it back.  What has been shared may not show up on your platform but with the use of tagging, and screen printing it’s a sure bet what ever it is, it’s still hanging around somewhere ready to ruin your reputation.

If you’re made it to this sentence, Thank YOU!  Be sure you leave a comment before running off to google yourself!


Until then ….  Do Grand Things,

Still not blogging? Here’s a simple reason why you should


An obvious but often overlooked way to set yourself apart is to write. By posting great content about what you do or offer, you show your audience that you’re an expert in your industry.

BUTTTT, here’s the thing … Unless you write for a technical business, do research, or provide detailed instructions, nobody (read. me.) wants to read boring stuff.  Soooo, when you share, write in your own voice, develop your personal brand.  Engage in your writing like you’re having a conversation, yes people do tend to nod and makes comments with what they agree with when reading. By doing so, you gain audience trust and build customer influence.

The irony that you’re reading this on my blog is not lost on me  …  hopefully you learn something or I help to spark an idea from my sharing.


Until then … Live Out LOUD!

Real Success is Grown not Instant

It’s Monday, let’s get up and get to it, but take this success reminder with you.

Success Photo

This quote by Twitter CEO Dick Costolo is so dead on correct.  Too many people jump into situations and expect them to be an instant success or look a person we consider having made it without considering the time, energy, failures, and discipline that proceeded the arrival at success’ doorstep.    

An overnight success usually comes with many many many nights of work, trials and failures.  Long standing success is aged like a fine wine, it best realized over time.  

If you want real success, be ready to put in real work … That is unless, you have a genie with a coupla wishes left.
