Whether you are trying to grab that brand new promotion in the office or you are just trying to look and appear confident so you can walk up to your crush and ask them out, improving your personal brand is very important! Your personal brand is what people say about you when you aren’t near them or around them. It’s what people talk about when they are talking about you and you aren’t in the room. You always want a really good personal brand, in your professional and your personal life and it can always be improved on, no matter what stage in life you are!
The most noticeable thing about your personal brand that you can improve on instantly is your appearance. You always want to look polished, professional and stylish when you are at the office! Keeping your hair super neat, your makeup ideal and your attitude approachable is honestly a great way to improve your personal brand and keep people talking about you! Remember, if you are constantly wearing things that don’t fit, have hair that is not neat at all and makeup that is more nighttime than daytime, people might think that you are unorganized, even if you aren’t at all!
Ah, this is the most important part of changing your personal brand! Truthfully, nobody wants to be around someone that is negative all of the time. That doesn’t mean that you can’t vent, but find friends that you can vent to and keep it just to that close-knit group. You don’t want to spread negativity and you certainly don’t want to be the person that people say they don’t want to sit next to because you aren’t positive … ever. Your attitude is very vital to how well your reputation is in the office and among your friends!
Positivity is something that so many people are attracted to and that means that you’ve got to exude positivity at all costs. Like I said, having that group of close-knit friends and your spouse should be the only people that you are really negative toward, instead, try to find the bright and sunny side of things. Be the optimist instead of the pessimist!
Finally, you’ve got to have a lot of patience when you are building and improving your personal brand. It isn’t something that is going to happen overnight and it certainly isn’t something that is going to be changed within a matter of months. People have to see that you are trying to work on your brand and they’ve got to really see the improvement on your personal brand. Ladies, be patient, it will change, it just takes a lot of time!
Moving your personal brand from shambles to amazing will take time, but it is so worth it. You want to be positive, you want to look amazing and you want to be patient. These are the keys to building and improving your personal brand! So ladies, what stories do you have about your personal brand? Have you ever tried to change yours?
