HOW TO GROW YOUR PERSONAL BRAND IN THE NEXT TWENTY-ONE DAYS

Creating a positive personal brand is about more than winning a popularity contest.

A positive personal brand instills trust, connection, loyalty, and leadership virtually instantly.

Your personal brand is NOT a personality contest, therefore you must look at the 5 key areas of your personal brand (mindset, mission, meetups, mile markers, and marketing) if you truly want to create effective, positive, long term growth.

Invest 45 minutes everyday on one of the tasks below. And in 30 days, sit back and see how far your personal brand has grown.

1. Audit yourself.

You must know what you are really going for and why you want to go there

2. Take an inventory.

Of all of your strengths, loves, weaknesses, and offerings.

3. Poll the audience.

Once you know what you want. You have to know what your peeps want and why.

4. Be a P.I.

Dig deep into your “whys” as well as the “whys” of your audience. What you say isn't always the real “why”

5. Mirror time.

Look yourself in the mirror. What feelings and thoughts come up about yourself be them about your appearance of who you are. Whatever the self talk is about, make sure it is positive.

6. Talk it out

Before you get into that sales conversation, talk it out. Practice how you are going to speak about their objections, hesitations, and fears.

7. Go shopping.

Yep, what you wear matters to them and affects your body language so dress to impress (at least yourself).

8. Get on camera.

Show the world who you are and what you are about. Come from a place of service vs a “look at me” mindset.

9. Have coffee

Get out into the real world and meet people.

10. Chat it up.

Master the art of making conversation with strangers. No small talk here. Learn how to have lots of short yet deep conversations, fast.

11. Join a group. 

And it doesn't have to be a business group. Get in a group that builds you up.

12. Read

About anything and all of the time.

13. Write it out.

Write out the internal dialogue going on. Those thoughts, fears, joys, and heartaches; write it all out.

14. Rewrite your story.

Read your story daily and see which areas don't fully reflect where you want to go and who you want to be. Rewrite these areas to be as deep, rich, and fulfilling as your heart wants them to be.

15. Get to work.

Stop thinking and start doing.

16. Testify.

Share with others the blessings they have been in your life and you will be amazed at the positive and heartfelt things people will have to say about you.

17. Be the expertise.

Whatever area of expertise you have, own it, be it, do it.

 

18. Volunteer.

Serve others for no other reasons than the love of it. Do it in secret (aka no Facebook posts highlighting your good deeds).

19. Say cheese!

Find a photographer you love and get professional pictures done no matter the cost.

20. Update. Update. Update.

Update your story. Update your life. Update your interest. Update your style. As you evolve internally, reflect it externally.

21. Sleep.

Though we all feel the desire to be superhuman, but we need sleep. Sleep makes every form of nonverbal communication and mindset issue better.
