The storms of life will come when the wind blows, will your Brand withstand the storm?
I recently gave a Brand/Image seminar to a group of students. I often have the opportunity to speak and teach at universities, and the questions are always very interesting. One student recently asked me a question that many people think, yet few have the courage to say out loud. He asked, “What if you are associated with someone who has fallen down, done something they shouldn’t, had a lapse in integrity and even potentially hurt others by doing so how do you disassociate with them?” The answer is simple; a Brand built on a solid foundation can align itself with one that is weak or broken and help that Brand to rebuild. A Brand built on integrity has the option to disassociate,’ or not, but a person who has a Brand built on integrity will most likely choose grace and forgiveness over desertion. What is your Brand built on? The storms of life will come when the wind blows, will your Brand withstand the storm? Does your Brand help others and give them hope for restoration?
Sometimes, in fact, most times, the best way to help another person is by sharing a personal testimony. I am passionate about helping individuals and companies achieve and become all that they can. The past ten years have been filled with challenges, and even more, blessings. Like every human, I have grown on issues of profession and personal character. There are values I now hold out as absolutes and I have a deep appreciation for my successes as well as my failures. The events, education and experiences of life drove me to my business and to create my own, Personal and Professional Brand.’
Life, business and relationships will always be illuminated by positive HOPE when the foundation of your Personal and Professional Brand,’ and your company, is built on the right principles. If you are challenged professionally, a solid brand will lead your actions, guide your thoughts and directly impact your results. Your brand should influence every decision at work and at home. A strong, pure and improving Brand is the lifeblood of people and companies alike. Brand will outperform wealth because money can be lost, but Brand endures. A humble, thankful Brand will surpass failure because repentance and real change never comes from a profession or person full of pride and indifference. A true and genuine Brand will fix mistakes, repair relationships and create opportunities from life’s painful errors.
When a person or a company knows their Brand, communicates that Brand and most of all, operates and lives by that Brand, they will always have HOPE. A good Brand builds a good legacy and lifts us up when we cannot stand on our own and it can help those who have fallen to have hope again.

RECENT BLOG POST: Integrity never goes out of style…Click here to read more.
Over the past month, I have seen integrity in the Personal and Professional Brand’ of two professionals whose services I have utilized over the past few years. I must say that integrity is one of the most important Personal and Professional Brand’ descriptive words an individual or company can have. If the word integrity is linked to your entire life, I can promise you that your visual image will consistently shine. Integrity is not found in a closet, it can’t be put on like make-up or a tie, and you can’t buy it at the store. Integrity shines brighter for a person better than any fashion or style could ever shine.
