Yesterday I explained my experiences about myself. First of all, I told about definition of Personal branding. Based on book by Colin Wright have already read before, personal branding involves managing your reputation, style, look, attitude and skill set the same way that a marketing team would run the brand for a bag of Doritos or bottle of shampoo.
Dare to change is the key to success. Please know who you are. I invite the participants to take selfie with two poses. First, please take photo with bad pose and second, please take picture with smile face. Which one do you like? Everybody says they like smiling face. In the smiling face, you look nice. Please keep the action don’t do bad action again. Like a brand, you should know who your customer and where’s your potition. It’s more important to change.
Everyone is unique and have many kinds of strengness and also weakness. You have to maximize your strengths and minimize your weakness. Show yourself and I believe you can do that.
