My Personal Brand Plan

  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.

I have started by using the following methods to communicate my messages:  Linked In facilitates the process of being able to connect to and get in touch with professionals  Using Twitter I can follow PR professionals and be able to see what they have to say and what type of discussions they want to engage in, and events that are taking place  Blogging will allow me to express myself and my personality so that others can see what I am about. It will also be beneficial because I can follow people and develop my own following.
