“Opportunities don’t happen, you create them.” – Chris Grosser

Did you know? Your personal brand can help you achieve long-term success as a business owner.

What is a personal brand? As they say in the advertising world, a personal brand is your self-packaging. Here are some important ways you can help develop your own unique and effective personal brand:

  1. Be consistent. People tend to trust you more when you demonstrate consistent behavior over time.
  2. Be professional.  Aim to be positive and helpful, no matter the occasion or situation.
  3. Be considerate of others. Those who assist another to overcome an embarrassing moment will make a friend for life. Likewise, helping others succeed in their career or business can forge a strong bond.
  4. Dress to suit the occasion. The first step in professional branding is a professional and distinct look.
  5. Cultivate a graceful attitude. Build up others. Speak well of your competitors. And express gratitude. An upbeat attitude can go a long way toward creating a successful personal brand.
