Who am I and Who are You?

Want to build your personal brand?

There are six building blocks to start with. Below is my foundation.

1. Age/Culture (How you’re living out the culture of your generation):

I’m 38, the Sandwich generation, not a digital native, yet computer literate and I tend to balance online/offline time. Preferring more face to face and real time interactions these days as that’s where I find value.

2. Mission:

To amplify the efforts of high quality, driven, conscious and progressive Lower North Shore microbusinesses I work with by unearthing their unique story, build them a platform and receptive audience to ensure their story gets support and they find mentors (resources) and allies (clients, prospects, partners, etc…) to achieve their vision.

3. Values:

Integrity, transparency, clarity, brevity, simplicity, humanity, quality and TIME (My time will always be distributed the following way: Lucy, Martin, family, The 13th Gift, the novel I’m writing,  four high quality foundational clients who share my values, who have as much to give as they can take from me – I want to prevent burnout!!!, enjoy my life, find meaning, do the work I love with the people I love, earning a comfortable living).

4. Vision:

Acceptance into mainstream culture as prolific writer, 3 published books by 42 exploring the power of innate gifts, faith (all religions, power of energy/life), our connections, value of family, importance of attracting people who have the same values to set up our organisation/family and how to do this through living our values and setting an example

5. Weakness:

Tendency to please people, fall under other people’s influence and projections and going out of my way to try to help people who are not open to help.

6. Challenges:

Technical side of amplifying stories (platform for publishing posts across several social media platforms, or team who can develop the look and feel/websites/photos/videos for storytelling content) and finding it hard to get clients to share their personal journey stories with me. I have plenty of non-clients who share their life stories, but those people don’t need my help. I have to find a way to get clients to open up and share and then get them used to the idea of sharing intimate and personal stories with relative strangers.
