By the end of this chat you will learn:

  • The importance of building a personal brand.
  • An example of a personal brand statement and how you can craft your own.
  • How adding a side project (hustle or gig) to your life could be a source of creativity, path for self-discovery and empowerment.

Like many of us, all of last year forced me to reinvent myself. I could no longer solely rely on my corporate background / experience to get me to my next opportunity. That's when I started my side project with the original intent to show my future employer my ability to expand my knowledge of SEO and content writing. A passion project turned into a bigger mission, turned into my purpose. There is always an opportunity to take a rejection and turn it into a redirection. Start before you are ready, because you will never be fully prepared for a major life changing moment.
