"When you do well, when you do your best, people notice." - Oprah And I really believe that. I was recently asked in an interview for the USA about my new book ‘Brand Yourself’; what lead me down the path to personal branding? And I thought that it was important that I shared my some of my comments with you as well. I responded that I was incredibly fortunate in that l had found my true purpose. I have been branded with a mission so to speak. I regularly quote, ‘ your life experiences are aligned to your life purpose’. And my unique experiences have made me uniquely qualified to help you discover your life mission, assignment and brand yourself accordingly. If you’ve been reading our articles you know that we are passionate about personal branding. And to celebrate the release of our new book, ‘Brand Yourself’ we have included a VIP offer below. After all, you’re success is very important to us. But first let me explain why personal branding is so important to me? And why it should be for you too. My publisher asked me why I was considered the authority on Personal Branding in Australia. I responded that firstly, I am the only Australian author to write a book specifically about personal branding in Australia. Secondly, we focus not just on branding but on positioning your brand as "the" authority. As a result, I have been tagged, particularly in the US as the authority on personal branding. The mindset behind this concept is critically important and unique to our Brand Yourself Action Plan. Thirdly, that while many have written articles on “how to” build your brand, we discuss your brands unique purpose and design your brand intentionally around that purpose. I personally believe that before you brand yourself on Facebook, Twitter, as a Media Personality, Speaker or Author you need to understand your life purpose and your personal brand’s purpose. As a Personal Brand Strategist I ask every client "What is your life purpose? What is the purpose of their Personal Brand? I believe we have a life mission to complete. I believe that each one of us has had unique life experiences that enables us to connect with a unique target audience. My purpose is to assist people discover and determine their purpose. At the heart of personal branding is concept that your brand must reflect who you are, what you stand for and what you plan to achieve. So unless you know yourself and your mission, your vision and your purpose; how can you know how to brand yourself and more importantly who you’re branding yourself to attract? The aim is to create a package that is an accurate reflection of who you truly are while creating an appealing and compelling personal brand to your target market and their expectations. So if you don’t understand who is your target audience and who you are than you can be wasting valuable time and resources. Right? My goal is to help you design your personal brand, identify strategies to build your professional profile, and assist you to leverage your personal brand to become the authority in your industry. My strength and expertise is in defining and designing your true personal brand. My new book 'Brand Yourself' will help you unearth the real you, your purpose and your mission. Suffice, to say that my publisher was convinced that my tag was apt. I love the quote in the movie, Invictus, “You Are the Master of Your Fate. The captain of your soul. ” And You are. Like a movie director, I nurture your brand creation with you in the starring role. The following quote captures the essence of a great personal brand. “You look famous, are legendary, appear complex, act easy, radiate presence, travel light, seem a dream, and finally, prove real.” Congratulations on wanting to be that person.
