6 Tips For Developing Your Brand!!!

6 Tips For Developing Your Brand!!!

Here are my tips for Brand Development:

1) Create A Circle That Matters. (Your Squad Represents how your brand moves.) Bosses hang with other Bosses!

2) Utilize Your Network: “Your Net Worth Is Within Your Network”-Willie J

3) Allow Yourself Space To Dream Big, But Execute The Vision. (Lessons will occur, but you have to at least go after the dream and make it happen.)

4) Get Your Brand In Order: File the proper paperwork, Ask Questions, Invest In What Your Don’t Know, Hire A Team. (If you cannot afford a business coach or lawyer, etc. barter with them. (Ex: You run a bracelet business & need a lawyer, give the lawyer some of your bracelets in exchange for them drawing up your contracts.)

5) Allow Room For Growth & Rest: Take a vacation, get some sleep, or rejeuvenate your energy by enjoying your hobbies.

6)Show Support To Other Entrepreneurs: There is room for everybody to win. Buy from other entrepreneurs this promotes growth in the business community, shows support to other business owners, and allows us to build more successful streams of income.

Where Will I Go….?

Where Will I Go….?

I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. It’s been 9 years since I graduated high school. When I left for college I had it all figured out. I’d graduate with my degree and then I’d move out of Ohio. At the time my life was taking many twist and turns due to family issues going on, so I had to take care of in-house first. Now that storm has passed, the idea of me moving has come back full force. I know where home is, Cleveland will always have my heart. At the same time if I want my brand to expand I’ll have to open myself up to another city that can provide me with the proper resources. I have a few places I’d love to live in, but not sure which one to choose. My best friend and I were talking about moving in general. We both have degrees and realize that relocating will be in our best interest. She brought up the fears of moving to a city where you don’t have family or friends to lean on. It’s a valid reason, but many of our friends have relocated and found success in cities they’d never think of being in.

Then my mom is worried about me moving because she doesn’t think I’d make it. What she fails to realize is if I can survive being unemployed and still staying afloat surely I can make it wherever I go. I don’t have any children or responsibilities and this would be a great time in my life to venture away. Plus I have a lot of ideas that require more backing and guidance. Life has many challenges, but regrets are hurdles too. In order for me to figure out where I need to be it’s time to do more affirmations. Recently I looked at a few grad school programs for my Masters, but nothing seems to fit at the moment. I refuse to rush into school to gain more status. I’m doing pretty well with my Bachelors.

My radio show “All Things Willie J” is molding into a quality hour program that provides my audience with valuable knowledge. I expanded the show and have a few segments that are going to become signatures of who I am. For example, “Starrah Motivational Thought” is a spot where I give inspiration to those who need it. One highlight of this experience was having my Insurance Agent, Amanda Polasko talk about the importance of having LIFE INSURANCE. That is a topic that I speak with many friends and family about. So many of us don’t have life insurance, which than bears more weight on the family during their time of grief. If you can save at least $20.00-$30.00 dollars a month then it’s possible for you to get some kind of life insurance coverage. Even if it’s for $5,000 dollars every cent counts and you can always increase your coverage amount at a later time. I know we’re in trying times, but WHEN THERE’S A WILL, THERE’S A WAY.

In closing, having a radio show has opened me up to the possibilities of going global and being in a new city that embraces me. Cleveland has given me continued support and I know that wherever I go, I’ll represent my hometown well. 2013 is my year of transitioning and gaining more insight into who “Willie J” is and what he’s meant to do here on earth. Now that is worth exploring whether I’m in the BIG APPLE, the BIG EASY or ACROSS THE POND.

Starrahs where would you want to live if money wasn’t an issue for you? What would you do there and why that city suits you?

Traveling Comfortably,
Willie J
