An Attempt at My Personal Brand Plan- Be Awesome

  1. 1. My Personal Brand Plan Not just any Wa flower
  2. 2. Brand Statement
  3. 3. Where am I going with this? There isn’t really one thing, that I can say at this moment in my life, that I can focus on and base my personal brand around. What I do know, is I like and I like making people . That is my foundation, and as time passes and I can slowly define the image I want to portray I will have a better idea of what my focus will be. For now, I will just have fun with whatever I am trying to communicate.
  4. 4. Goal To be considered awesome at what I do. "When I get sad, I stop being sad, and be instead. True story.“ – Barney Stinson

It will also be beneficial because I can follow people and develop my own following.  I will include a humber PR badge on my blog. This will identify me with the humber network and the institution that I am currently studying at and associated with.
