#Brandi’s Principle’s: Adding Value

1420_Brandi_s_Principles__LOGO1

So today we have touched on a great deal! From what you wanna be to what to seek when meditating and now we can close the day with these thoughts.

Never do you seek someone to just guide you, you seek someone to listen. See whether you choose a coach, developer, mentor, manager and or business professional we all have to listen first. But what we never think of is understanding they may never agree with our vision or action.

Do you want a YES person or a let’s see if we can do it easier/better and less stressful person.

In business we get so fixed on multiple streams of income, but can you really manage all at 1 time with out the right support?

Is every dollar worth going after!

Can you really add value by spending $1500 to get $150?

#Brandi’s Principles: What Are You Building?

B: Be vigilante in your approach of building the business. Whether you are an Entrepreneur or a Business Owner, you will always be tasked with challenges. Top 3 things to remember:
1. They will build character for you and the company
2. They will focus you on the need of the business and the customer
3. They will bring total value to the BRAND.

U: UPDATE your daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual plan of action. No longer is the Business plan for loans it is for ACTION.

UPGRADE: your way of dressing… It will change the way you are seen in both Work and Home.

The Business Appearance:
1. Dress in comfort but about the business.
a. Think about what you want or expect in a meeting or in the office.
2. Dress in your Company Color.
a. It adds value and Brand Awareness
3. Dressed “one level up” with the PAPERWORK
a. Well if you want, a million be ready to present why “you are worth a million”.
4. Neat and clean: Drive the business.
a. Clean Folder, shine the shoes, check the hands, check the belt, check the elbows and most importantly check the teeth.
5. Volume: 1-100 in the room BE READY: the ability to connect with at least 1 person in the room will help the decision process.

I: INTEGRITY: Your MISSION AND VISION are what you stand for… make sure you always operate with that in mind.

L: LEARNING: Never allow yourself to think you have the answers. Be willing to research, partner, listen, grow, develop and most importantly ASK QUESTIONS!

D: DIRECTION: It does not always come from you… Remember there is someone else watching… Direction is a 4 –way stop and go function.

#Brandi’s Principles: There Are Levels In Your Career

1420_Brandi_s_Principles__LOGO1

So yes! I am super late! But impact comes at anytime!

Today’s principle is professional and personal development!

Both levels require a sense of acceptance. When you have personal challenges or react negatively every day, hour, minute or Second. Do you flip a switch? Hmmm. Well something needs to change.

That is where the professional side comes in. Remember last week we spoke on patience, strength and guidance. Well when we develop a clearer professional stance these things become easier.

The other most serious element needed is taking professional criticism. Can you take before or after its dished? Hmmmm.

Well if you want to grow take it, absorb it and see how you can change it! As I learned this weekend #change is 365 day commitment!

#Brandi’s Principles: How To Make It

1420_Brandi_s_Principles__LOGO1

This week has been absolutely nuts. I started out heavy-duty in work mode. Then my mother had to go to ER, then I had a bad reaction to some food. My oldest son been taking care of me and his brother. He so tired.

The principle missed from yesterday that spills over today falls into a few areas.

Patience -dont always push. Have faith and work with that belief to get to the next step.

Wisdom- always think it through. Wisdom comes from time. It is never rushed.

Guidance -be willing to be led and not always lead. It will make you stronger.

Strength -not because it’s needed but because it’s necessary. Strength is forefront of overseeing obstacles and moving from good to great.

Be blessed and reclaim today as take over Thursday. Instead of throwback.

#Brandi’s Principle: Your Investment In You!

1420_Brandi_s_Principles__LOGO1

Are you a Speaker, New Business, or do you just have a crafty idea. You see we create so many conceptual and beautiful ideas but we do not fully invest in them.

Ask yourself what was your total investment in you?
Please if you start to transact money for goods and services buy a Domain name, create a fanapage, create the Instagram, and create the email address (even if its google). You essentially create a brand by creating a platform for existence.
Now of course you will sometimes have more cost than others will depending on your time and level of skill but the essentials are clear-cut. So ask yourself…

If I am a professional and I offer services for “X” dollars why am I not reinvesting in my dream?

The average actual start-up cost is around $100.00, which may include:
• Filing fee (State) $25-$100(annually)
• Url/Domain Name ($12-$20) (annually)
• Phone Number: Free-$25.00(monthly)
• Fax Line: $10.00 (Monthly)
Time to develop is one thing, but think of all the other minor cost that go into developing that we skimp on:
• Business Cards
• Domain names
• Professionally developed Logos, One Sheets and presentation materials
• The right suit for a meeting
• The proper Phone (separate from the personal line)
• Fax Services and so much more.

#Brandi’s Principles: Hello FRIDAY!

1420_Brandi_s_Principles__LOGO1

Its Friday… What did you accomplish? Before you leave ensure the office, turn off the notifications and or say, “I will do it Monday!” Make sure the list or main task are complete.

1. Check all the emails and make sure you responded
2. Check all the text messages and Make sure you responded
3. Check the voicemail and make sure you took notes to respond
4. Check the missed call log and make sure you responded.
5. Check all social media boxes and make sure you responded.
See we are all busy but remember communication is KEY! So when you don’t communicate you look uninterested and unwilling to >>>> see the >>>> is where PERCEPTION becomes someone’s reality.

I know! I hate it to, but PERCEPTION IS REALITY is the TRUTH! It will hurt the best relationship because we “ASSUMED” and we didn’t say.

So remember to follow the checklist and even if you have to say let me think about it at least you took time to READ, REACT and RESPOND(click send).

They real keys to being successful in business.

Love,
B

#Brandi’s Principles: Get To Know Your Publicist!

1420_Brandi_s_Principles__LOGO1

Your afternoon principles brought to you from the #PR Industry.

Please note PR is not marketing, nor is it operations, distribution, personal assistant and or general business support .

They support the mission of gaining media attention, growing the visual carbon footprint in the industry you are in.

They manage press, connect with business and gain partnerships that increase your brand awareness.

They work intandom with your personal image!

Whether the brand stands alone or not the owner is a direct connection to what people buy into!

When you are ready commit to an team that supports your industry and ask questions about where their connections are and how large is the reach.

Ask, what can I do differently to grow my brand.

But in that same moment be humble enough to to listen and try what is being suggested.

Think about : if you had the answers already your brand would be all over the place.

Just take a moment and think. You will be grateful you did.

Brought to you by frustrated PR professionals that feel like you won’t listen. Lol!

They love your gift! Let them help you!
