Brand You Personal Branding

Episode 300 is a solo show about why you should consider rebranding, why you shouldn’t, and some personal reflections on the Brand You podcast -- and all that I’ve experienced and learned since starting the show in 2014. Believe it or not, the podcast was named Up and to the Right for about 6 months before I did my first podcast rebrand.

 

There are two reasons to rebrand:

  1. If people don’t understand who you are and what you do
  2. If you’re attracting the wrong customer

 

Up and to the Right was not attracting my ideal audience. But when I changed the name to Brand You, the podcast took off. It was clear what the purpose of the podcast was and who should listen.

 

In this episode, we go over how to tell if your product, service, or podcast needs a facelift, an overhaul, or a funeral. We also go over what to do if you are multi-passionate and how to stack all your passions so that you can pull from each one.

 

The Brand You podcast will be taking a month off and returning in October as You are the Brand. Thank you for your support over the past 300 episodes and I look forward to the next 300!

In this episode, my friend Marc Pitman shares how to use uncertainty to become the leader you want to be. Marc and I met at a Love 146 event years ago. As a reminder, Love 146 is a nonprofit I support that provides care for children who have been trafficked and the sales from my book are going to the cause.

 

Marc’s most recent book The Surprising Gift of Doubt is for the high-performing leader. We discuss if feelings of doubt and insecurity ever go away and how to manage them, the enneagram and how it ties into feelings of doubt in your work, and Marc’s emphasis on nonprofits and how they can help you in your leadership development.

 

The 4 Quadrants of Leadership:

  1. Have a lot of confidence to complete a task because they have watched others do it so they copy them -- but their confidence drops when they find that they are not as successful as the person they copied.
  2. Feel like they are faking their success and always trying to “fix” a problem although they aren’t sure what it is or how to fix it.
  3. Learn to grow in their unique identity and do what works best for them so their confidence increases.
  4. Help others increase their confidence by “focus leading.”

 

3 Competencies that Everyone Has:

  1. Hardwiring (personality or cognitive)
  2. Stories (the way we are programmed)
  3. Goal Setting (the way we handle goals)

Andy Storch is a performance coach, speaker, consultant, and the author of the new book, Own Your Career, Own Your Life. He is the host of not one, but two podcasts and the founder and host of the Talent Development Think Tank conference. Andy has unfortunately been battling cancer but you would never know it because he always has a smile on his face and an infectious, never-quit attitude.

 

Andy has been on the show before but this time we discussed his creative process for writing his book and what owning your career means. Here’s a hint -- you don’t have to leave your nine-to-five to live a happy and fulfilled life! This book is meant to help people map out a career and live with intention.

 

We discussed the book writing process, how to create new corporate learning opportunities, and what feedback culture is. We also go into:

 

  • The idea behind his book, who it’s for, and why you should wait to write a book until you are more established in your business.
  • The mistakes people make when they take a job because it pays well or is convenient, rather than working at a job that fits into their goals.
  • How to get new skills and perfect the skills that you have by practicing and getting critical feedback from your peers.
