However, mindset is not enough. You have to have the right skill set to be able to successfully do the things you have your mind set on.
Mindset and skill set go hand in hand. So many people aspire to be entrepreneurs and I think that is great! But not everyone has the skills needed to function as an entrepreneur.

When you hear about or think about branding, most people think it’s for businesses only. The reality is, YOU, as an individual, are a brand. In fact, everything about you represents your brand. That could be a good thing or a bad thing. In essence, your personal brand is your reputation. Its what people think about when they see a picture of your or hear your name. Its what people associate you with. Its what people remember about you. It’s the story of who you are and what you represent. Know this, how well does your brand represent you?
WHY IS PERSONAL BRANDING IMPORTANT?
It just is! The way life is set up in our current time, everyone needs to realize that they are a brand and they need to develop it to get the most out of life, and to reach goals. The more successful you want to be the more important your persona brand is.
For example, recruiters, employers, colleges, boards, event planners, groups, associations are all going to research you and your brand when considering any kind of dealings with you. This has become the new norm and no one can get away from it. I personally Google people that I am interested in collaborating with or trying to connect with. It’s pretty much a habit now. If you are considering or will consider any of these, you need to develop your personal brand:

Yes, it is true, we wear many hats. We are believers, wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, friends, co-workers, teachers, doctors, lawyers, judges, authors, speakers, coaches, fashion designers, mentors, etc. The list is limitless. But, do you know who you really are? When someone says, “Tell me, who is ___________________?” (fill in the space with your full name). Do you respond with, “Wow! That's a loaded question!”, then proceed listing the many roles you play? How many different hats do you include? Many times, it’s your unconscious narrative. You easily identify yourself with the roles you play or the different hats you wear, but you never stand up and say who you really are. Will the real YOU, please stand up?
