You treat your career like a high-end product or service that has people lining up to work with you.
Whether you are planning to climb the corporate ladder or start your own business, right now is the moment to start thinking about your personal brand.
Isn't that what we all want in our lives? The freedom to choose how we live our lives. The freedom of choice. The freedom to be who we are. Are you where you want to be right now in your career? Are you able to be yourself? Are you even sure who you are? Either way, I'm sure you have the ambition for something more, something different.
Take the lead
Instead of going where the opportunities are or waiting for someone to discover your talents, take the active steps to make yourself known to others. Put yourself out there in a way that you control the story. Show your best self with your skills, knowledge, and talents. Get the right people to come looking for you and never ever apply for a job again.
