Hold true to being YOU!

What is personal branding?

To me it is about how you want to be perceived, your reputation. Whether that be online or in person with your peers.

With friends, you may be the shoulder to cry on or the friend that is known as the good listener, or the friend that gives a honest opinion no matter how harsh it might come across, but your friends always appreciate you for it.

The same holds true in network marketing... are you the one that provides good content to your team? Can you listen to the trials of others and give them a good action plan to turn their marketing efforts around?

When first starting out its hard not to jump from one training course to another or from one self proclaimed attraction marketing expert to the next. A good course of action could be to step back away from all the hype and truly decide what it is you want to do. Do you want to help others improve their health and wellness? Do you want to show people how to send out appreciation to those important in their lives? Whatever it is, try to hold true to those values. Try not to fall prey to every 2x2, 3x3, or 100x100 latest and greatest matrix that's proclaimed to "Do all the work for you". Reach out to people and show them that you truly care about helping them and alleviating their fears. Even if they choose not to work with you, you could leave them with a positive experience which could lead to referrals.
