Trust vs. Fear

Maybe you feel strapped for money in some way. You “just need a job,” or “just need a raise.”

A part of you might be afraid that the finances (or maybe something else) won’t work out.

Can you notice that part of you? For it’s just a part. It’s not the Real You. 🙂

Watch the part, love it, and accept it.

Allow that fear. Allow it to pass through you.

Then…. let it transform into trust. Trust in your ability to tackle life’s challenges.

You are wise.
You are powerful.
You are more than enough.

Take the baton and conduct your symphony.

Why Building Your Personal Brand Matters

Building a personal brand doesn’t need to be some fake, self-aggrandizing thing. It’s a tool to broadcast the value you bring, and to convey trust.

Read this in depth post on why.

“Think about it. Would you rather hire someone whose work you’ve read, whose podcast you’ve listened to, whose TED Talk you shared, or someone you know nothing about aside from what you’ve read in their resume and what they said in an interview?”

Learn with Skillshare

An excellent way to build a brand is by learning out loud!

To do this you can start a course on Skillshare, then blog/tweet about what you’re learning. Simple as pie.
