Every personal brand has a unique set of core beliefs that shape who you are as a brand. I covered these in a two-part podcast series in episodes #5 and #6 if you need a refresher to discover yours.
Once your beliefs are uncovered, your “superpowers” help guide your vision, strengthen your authority, differentiate your brand, and attract customers that love you.
Alright, so there’s an old saying that goes along the lines that if you do not have a brand, you have a commodity.
First let’s start off by explaining what commodities are. Commodities are interchangeable goods. And yes I was raised a farm girl so here me out on this one….
Everyone seems to want to get their hands on the magic trick that will take their account from 2k to 10k followers overnight. But today, I want to give you my thoughts on this whole follower obsession and show you why engagement should be your top priority over follower count.

In a world of increasing distractions and “shiny objects,” finding YOUR purpose and core interest is more necessary than ever before.
When you’re living in alignment with your true purpose, then every decision you make is rooted in pure confidence and joy, rather than fear.

You have plenty to be thankful for right now just the way you are.
A successful Holiday Promotion doesn’t happen without some thoughtful planning… and since you, my dear are a purpose-driven CEO you aren’t going to pass up the chance to snag a new client or two or ten!

Today I’m laying all my beliefs out there when it comes to why Personal Branding is a Non-Negotiable when it comes to building a business, advancing your career or becoming an influencer.
What it comes down to is if you don’t have a powerful and visible personal brand, you are putting yourself at a disadvantage in almost every aspect of your professional, business and personal life.

Most weekdays, you'll find me in (intentional) creative-mode working from my home office… but evenings are reserved for playing with my kiddos and sipping margaritas with friends. As a coach's wife, most weekends are spent cheering on my husband's basketball team, attending sporting events here in Cape Girardeau, Missouri... or traveling to warmer weather!
