Your unique brand can only be defined by you because, as a creative entrepreneur, you are your brand. If you are going to build success in your pursuits then you need to know what you are doing and why you are doing it – that is your brand focus.
Building Your Brand
Building your unique success begins by defining your unique voice. Call it personal brand, or vision, or why, or whatever you want to label it. Defining that IT will give you the foundation for building up your possibilities.
The teacher posted the online course material for each class with the directions to read the related material in their books. The students began working through the content – but in the wrong class. They weren’t doing what was required because they didn’t take time to follow the direction.
When you begin pursuing your BIG DREAMS without defining your voice and brand you are worse off than the kids doing the wrong work. The students at least had been giving directions. Taking action without focus is like doing online work offline – there is a disconnect.
Success requires you to be connected. Take a moment to uncover your personal brand.
Defining Your Personal Brand
Answer the following questions:
- What do you envision when you imagine your business/brand five years down the road?
- What emotions are stirred when you share your brand ideas with others?
- What words do people use to describe you? Ask five to 10 trusted people to offer three words.
- What gifts do you feel you have?
- What talents do you have? Include large and small ones.
- What gifts and talents would others say you have?
- What was/is your educational focus? List all the different areas.
- What skills have you acquired over the years?
- What abilities do you have that you consider ordinary?
- What do others ask you to do?
After you take the time to answer all of these questions, go back through the answers. Look for single words that stand out. Write those words on individual index cards or pieces of paper. Spread them out on a table or floor so you can see them all.
Meditate on the words.
Once you have meditated on the words, begin to gather like words and ideas to gather.
Begin to write out sentences, phrases, or short paragraphs that encompass the words and ideas sparked by the words.
These are the beginning of your brand definition.
