Does it tell others who you are underneath? Does it make others want to know you and what you can offer to them if they connect with you?
As I continue to spend time making connections, following hashtags, commenting and posting on other’s content, and learn more about personal branding and how to attract potential clients, something I see every day is “reach your audience.” What can I share with my followers that will provide “value?”. What can I share with others that will make a “difference” to their life?
As I am sitting here early this morning on my sofa snuggling with my kitty before I truly start my day is my thoughts for this morning. As a professional, yes I want to do business with people, yes I want to connect, find value, and provide value, but something I want most of all is to be REAL! I want my friends and colleagues to truly know who I am as a person. I want to reach you on a deeper level. Why? Because I am a relationship builder! Although part of who I am is an introvert, I love to connect with others more deeply than just trading time for money.
I want to invest in getting to know other people and I want for them to want to know me. It’s related to what we hear on LinkedIn about “personal brand.” Well, I want my personal brand to truly tell the story of who I am and what I represent.
Yes, I am a Profitability & Growth Advisor. Yes, I am also an Accountant. I am also a believer in Christ! I love animals, can’t have enough of them! They give unconditional love and I think that is priceless. I am happily married and have a wonderful daughter. I want my personal brand to tell those who want to know me, that I am more than just an accountant who can help a business owner grow their company or fix the mess that is their books. I want them to KNOW and FEEL what it is to be connected to me, to know that I am one of a kind. I am ethical to a fault, a rule follower, kind, fun, can be crazy just like the others. I take much pride in the service and work I provide.
So as I continue to build my personal brand, I’ll keep being REAL and share with you who I am because this is who I want you to know and this is who I want you to want to work with or tell someone else about.
Now moving on, today’s thoughts… do not succumb to your self-limiting beliefs. Those lies that you keep hearing in the back of your mind. You know the ones that sound like – you can’t do this, your not smart enough, you need more education, no one is going to hire you, you’ll never be as successful as so and so… Sound familiar? I hear these self-limiting beliefs all the time and do you know what they do? They attack my self-confidence. You?
Do not listen to these lies. These beliefs are false! They will not serve you!
Get rid of them, let’s do it together! If you have a dream, you can build it! Put faith in yourself. Talk kindly to yourself. The only ones holding us back are ourselves. Whatever it is you want, go get it and don’t let your self-limiting beliefs or any other doubters get in your way! The best way I know how to be successful is to surround myself with people who are smarter than I am! I did this as a Controller, Manager, and am doing it now in my business. It is a practice that makes us better at what we do and who we are.
I will close this with… if you are a business owner who finds themselves in a position of wanting to grow your business but needs some guidance, let’s connect! I am in business because I have been led to help others be successful. Your success is my success. I wouldn’t have a business if it weren’t for you wanting to strive to achieve your own dreams. And it is such an overwhelming experience of happiness and joy when you can help another person! I am in the business of helping business owners weave their business and personal goals together. With my unique approach, as an Advisor, I work with business owners to make a significant difference to their income, ease of operations, and often, an increase in the value of their business.
