Building Your Personal Brand

People are always wanting to know how to brand themselves and build their business. Sherrie shares some valuable tips and makes good points! 1. Volunteer your skills and knowledge with a local nonprofit organization. 2. Put yourself out there as a thought leader. Get published. 3. Seek out speaking opportunities. 4. Get involved with your local PRSA Chapter. I think they best of those four points would be to volunteer your skills, sort of like interning. You have to realize you may not get paid at first but if you show you are a valuable asset to the company or business and willing to work hard. It will pay off for you in the future. I interned 18 months at the radio station before I got a job on the payroll and I think it was totally worth it.  To sum everything up, I would say GET INVOLVED WITH ANYTHING YOU CAN AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OPPORTUNITIES WHEN THEY PRESENT THEMSELVES!
