3 Step Process of Reinventing Yourself

Step 1 – find out where you are now (what are you known for)

Step 2 – create a vision of where you wanna go and what do you need to do in order to overcome the gap of where you are and where you wanna be

Step 3 – live your brand (make sure everything you do is in line with the brand you wanna become)

3 Word Exercise

Go to half a dozen friends and colleges and ask the following question – “If you had only 3 words to describe me what would they be?”

You will be able to see certain trends and you might want to capitalize those in your branding.
