The past couple of weeks or so, I have been exploring strategy; particularly that of being you.  It was explored in:

And then, this morning, I came across this on HIRE ME.  IMHO, brilliant.  🙂  Yet, I see some of the comments saying that others would try this.  Creativity is not copying.  Individuality is not mimicking.  Being you is not hitching a ride on the coat tails of someone you admire.  It is a courageous and truthful exploration of who the hell you truly are, at your best.

Prince knew it.

He sung of it.

Being you is not a science, but an art.  It is an exploration of the now.  Our best branding, personally and professionally, is grounded in it.  As we do, we are known.

This Monday, I speak on it.  At MoMondays, I share the stage with Krista Walsh, Jon Butler, Christa Steeves and Suzanne Bloodworth.  I am looking forward to the messages of these wonderful and talented people.  My own message will be a deep, cool and even fun dive into finding that clear focus of you.  I hope you join me and us for a fun evening of exploring inspiration.  Tickets are apparently online ’til this evening… then $20 at the door.  It will be a great evening.

Ultimately: Be you, and see where that takes you.

Peace, passion and prosperity.
