Beyonce and Jay-Z recently filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect daughter Blue Ivy Carter's name--a probable first step to establishing the newborn's personal (and likely profitable) brand. While the move may seem a bit premature, web users of all ages are similarly trying to navigate social media sites to get seen, heard, and hopefully, trusted. Even if you work within a large organization and don't have celebrity parents, it's a good idea to start thinking about your personal brand today.

Yes, it's all about expertise. Yes, it's all about expertise. Whether you blog about real estate, tweet about stocks, or pin about jewelry, social media makes it easy for anyone to shape herself or himself online.
“ The first thing an employer is going to do is Google you,” Again, Google search yourself and see what pops up Remove all unprofessional content from your public accounts. This means combing through the vacation photos on your Facebook page, for example. Your future employer shouldn’t see pictures of you in a skimpy bikini or the fish-bowl-sized margarita you managed to drink by yourself. Your brand message should convey your interests, personal strengths, experience and future goals. Basically, you’re telling employers who might be looking at your social profiles why they should consider you for the open position. In a nutshell, set yourself apart from other candidates. umans are critical beings and with technology we become even more critical, where you have approximately 6 seconds to make a good impression to an online stranger. The more spruced up your online profile is, the more likely you are going to have a good impression on that visitor.
In his book The Storytelling Animal, Jonathan Gottschall points to research by Italian neuroscientists as evidence for the effectiveness of stories. By implanting electrodes in a monkey's brain, researchers discovered that certain parts of the brain were activated both when the monkeys performed an action and when they witnessed other monkeys performing that same action.

When human beings need to persuade people about ideas, we tell stories.• Figure out your controlling idea• In traditional storytelling, you can start with a character or location and let the story line wander, twist, and turn as you explore an underlying theme• Set the mood• Choose the right structure, and stick with it• Keep it short• Use details and images to build empathy• You need a beginning, middle, and end (e.g. the three poles), but the imagery inbetween is what ties it all together and makes for a truly memorable story• You will need a good listener• By gestures you craft a full story• Show vulnerability• When you admit your own faults or flaws in a story, the audience is more likely to empathize with you and remember your message
Start with a WHY, not WHAT• Watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OVnN4S52F3k
