We are wrapping up our discussion on how to discover your personal branding style.
Remeber, your personal brand is considered you packaging yourself with your business and marketing it as one or your brand (you + your business = your brand).
Monday we will discuss social media for your brand, so you really want to join in.
If you have any questions about online business, starting a small business, branding or a question related to business at all just send me an email and I will get back to you.

Facing life at 50 with less than $100K in the bank is not an uncommon thing and the average is around $87,000.00. We followed our heritage and invested in cds, stocks, 401Ks and IRS that are making less that they ever have.
I started to research what other options are out there. The stumbliing block for most of us is that most financial institutions want a minumum of $10,000.00 or more to start building your portfolio. For years I thouroughly believed this and let my money get exhauted and rott in 401Ks.
What I have found is that there are many ways to start with as little as $25 dollars and these avenues have varying risk but even least risky investment is making 13% and above. In my case I took a bit riskier approach and have reaped 150% gains. I know this sounds like many folks out there trying to steal your money but I am an average Joe and it does work.
Having the confidence to take that first step and dip the toe in the water paralized me for over 30 years. Now that I jumped in I can really say "the water's better than fine". Setting up multiple streams based on my palate for risk has allowed me to support my self without working for 9 months, produced enough revenue to invest in other avenues and even buy a small marketing franchise.
Within the next three years I hope to totally become social security free. And of course I want to share this with those that want a path or a roadmap. It is not hard and I will help all I can as I now do not feel as chained to an existance of working for others.
