Finding out what you are all about is only the beginning. Why you need to monetise your brand and pursue that spark!
PURSUE THAT SPARK
They say that a change is as good as a holiday. Over the past few weeks, I feel like a little light bulb has flashed on inside of my brain that, actually, changes everything.
Though, part of me, would still rather take the holiday.
Well, maybe just a little.
If it was to head back to Paris. Particularly to spend a week languidly living in a room at Le Pigalle with a supply of Gainsbourg records.
The thing is, I have had a little while now to work for my personal digital projects, but I have been getting a little restless. Perhaps this is driven by a desire to get out and push different boundaries. Maybe I am in need of a new start to dig my (cuban) heels into something larger.
NORMAL GETS YOU NOWHERE
Over the last few days I have been working on various projects, and considering just how I could bring my particular brand of edge to the table. Not long ago, I was head down reading If You Have To Cry, Go Outside by Kelly Cutrone, when I came across the chapter YOU ARE THE BRAND: Normal Gets You Nowhere.
“It’s not enough just to listen to your inner voice and ask yourself the hard questions about who you are and what you believe if you want to succeed. In other words, now that we’ve dealt with the inside, you need to get real about the outside. Personal branding is about figuring out who you are and what turns you on and then monetising it. “
I guess, what I am getting at, is that I am ready to take the findings of my intuitive journey and put them to work. As many of you who read this blog will be at different stages, you may still be defining your personal brand, rather than refining it. Something tells me that I will be refining my own for some time to come.
Though that is how it goes.
ACTIVATE AND INNOVATE
An insight- An arts advocate who spent years training in the dramatic arts, interpretive dancing in the dingest of bars for the love of raw live music, with an infinity for the androgynous, for a clash of silk and leather. A designer drawn to Kafka, moved by the fearless performances of Camille O’Sullivan, storytelling in a digital landscape one gap toothed day at a time.
My point is, that I am ready now, in a way that I just wasn’t before, to pursue that spark.
So, are you? How are you going with your own intuitive journey? Made your way? Tell us the story!
