Brand Personality Test

Over the past two years I have become overly excited about social media and social media trends and reading information from the experts in the field.  Those including Chris Brogan, Jeremiah Owyang, Michelle Mangen, and Marsha Collier to name a few.

Just like anything else in life, you need to read, filter, and then apply.  Take the things that work best for you OR that you can use to improve yourself, and then do them.

I am not 100 percent how I came across this, but I wound up on Sally Hogshead’s blog.  And although it is less social media, but more marketing/branding – it is all a good read.  And that leads me to the Brand Personality Test or your {F} Score.  It relates to the most powerful way to influence decision making.

Here is a video on my secondary trait of Trust:

Interested if you take the only {F} Score on how you rate.

Recharge the Batteries

Vacation is the only real time that I have to catch up on reading and to see what else is going on in life. I know it sounds sad, but I recharge while away from work reading and thinking about ways to make my professional life better which in turn makes my personal life better.

Sometimes I make a complete void of work and focus on my family and other times I let my brain wander about becoming a better professional.

I have been meeting with my staff to set goals and to have them on paper, when I came across this little nugget from @DaveRamsey via Twitter::

Goals convert vision into energy. When you write your goals down, you immediately start feeling the earth move under your feet.

Wow. That is powerful! This Fires me UP!!

Next, I read this from Chris Brogan. He is a social media guru. He wrote a great book called Trust Agents. Loved it. I own it so let me know if you want to read it. It basically tells you why you should properly use social media tools but does not tell you which tools to use. This link is a little do and don’t s that may help in out upcoming en devours. If you are not following him on Twitter you should @chrisbrogan.

Use the tools correctly and recharge yourself once in a while.
