- Find your vision. Figure out what it is that YOU want. Try and understand what makes you happy and stick with it. It's not about making the people around you happy, it's not about trying to meet an expectation that others have set for you. Ask yourself this.... What do YOU want to create for your life. Your vision is the time that you get to be selfish. Your vision is your personal future brand, and you control it.
- What do you want your legacy to be? Have you ever seriously thought about that? What will people remember you as? When someone looks you up, what will pop up? When people scroll through your social media accounts just to remember you what look will cross their face? Your legacy is MORE than your name, it's the things you've put out into the world. It's the people you have impacted whether through actions or words. Once you aren't here anymore, do you wonder what type of impact you would have had on people? It's time to start building your legacy and branding yourself. Without a brand... what do you have?
- Have a strong presence. Your online presence is you. That's your legacy and your vision tied together. It's everything that you have done and everything people have said about you. Go ahead and clean it up now before it comes to bite you in the bum later. Have a STRONG and POSITIVE presence on everyone you come in contact with. Make sure that you never leave a room and leave someone with a bad taste in their mouth about you. That is the worst thing that you can do, because a bad apple spoils everything that it is around.
