Ever heard people say building a brand takes forever? That they don’t have the time to come up with social media ideas, and the graphics, and share it AND engage? Well, guess what? I’m here to spill the tea on that myth and show you how staying stuck in “I’m not doing it, it takes too much time” isn’t your vibe, it’s a convenient lie that’s hold you back from building the exact thing you most want: freedom in your career and business.

  • Step 1: Make a Crystal Clear Plan:

    • Make a plan for your brand that says what you want to create and why that’s important. Think about what you want and what your audience, whether that is your clients, customers or your employees might like to know from or about you.

    • Imagine what success looks like and what it’s going to take to get there.

Easy Thing 1: Organize Your Work Stuff

Easy Thing 2: Find Cool Places to Hang Out

 

Choose cool places to meet your clients and colleagues that match your style. It’s like picking your favorite spot to hang out. Opt for meeting locations that resonate with your brand’s visual identity. Consider spaces like Soho House, your local coffee show (not Starbucks, too megabrand), or choose from platforms like Desktime for versatile meeting spaces.

Easy Thing 3: Dress Up Your Style

 

Like it or not, your personal style is a reflection of how you feel about yourself, and how others are impressed (or not) by you. Your outfit is an extension of your brand. Connect with your brand by presenting yourself in a way that aligns with your brand’s identity. Wear that gorgeous jacket you are “saving for something special” today is that special day! Emphasize the importance of confidence and self-expression through how you dress. It will make a lasting impression.

 

Start with small changes, dream big, and sparkle bright. You’ve got that star quality that is worth putting your time, money and energy into, Believe me, it will have compounding rewards for your future self.
