As a strong believer in the power of an entrepreneurial spirit and someone passionate about helping people develop stronger and more meaningful relationships, I am very inspired to get an email from Dan Schawbel, publisher of Personal Branding Magazine.
In an article in Fast Company Magazine, Schwabel lists a few pointers on building your personal brand:
• Remember it’s what you do that makes you who you are and how you project that to others that makes you memorable.
• Develop original content and use it as a talking point to network with other professionals to further your career.
• Become known by establishing a blog and use it to network with
others. Take risks, reach out to new people and never quit. There are
far too many opportunities and people out there to let roadblocks get
in your way. Remember that you are the CEO of You, Inc (Tom Peters), so
you need to make things happen and not rely on others.
In just 23 he has started his own magazine and business. Having gone from intern to CEO in the blink of an eye, I can only imagine what he will accomplish in the next 23 years.
