So, Today I decided to take it a step further with this personal branding for Ana The Night Owl and Tierra Dulce Shop. I've been reading several books on how to speed up and improve self-branding in a social market.
In the book, Smarter, Faster, Cheaper by David Siteman Garland, he says that one must set fears aside and start following your passions. I agree with such rehashed statement -- you hear it time and time again - follow your dreams, aim for the stars, follow your heart, pursue happiness and so forth.
But as soon as you decide what you want to follow or do - you have to devise a plan to get to that momentous bliss of living the life you want to live. But really it is not about selling products, Garland says it is about personal branding and selling yourself - people trust, people they like. So true.
Some key points: I learned this from a life coach sometime ago and if you are looking for a formula it goes like this.
Clear Vision + Passion + Consistent Action = SUCCESS
Pretty simple right?
