Today, we are revisiting what it means to have a reputation, what it means to have a brand, and what it means to have communications and clear expectations with people. And fun, fun - this is the start of four episodes about getting work and getting clients!
I wanted to start with your brand and your reputation because I think a lot of people think, “oh, I wanna go get all these clients and I need this work and I need all these things!” and we don't often stop to think about what the experience will be and how we wanna show up. And that, I think, is really something worth revisiting. So, before you start getting work and clients, let's focus on your brand and your reputation, shall we?
In this episode, we’re talking about:
why your brand already exists
how blemishes and your reputation can precede you and what to do about it
what to consider when you're crafting your brand and how that ties into your reputation, your values, your mission
One of the things that I think is really important is that it doesn't matter how much amazing work you do - if you're not out there, people don't know you, they don't know you exist.
And it doesn't matter how much amazing work you do if you are not a nice person. People aren’t gonna wanna work with you, right?
People want to know what you stand for, who you are as a person, why you do what you do. And so my hope is that you’ll look deeper today for a little more clarity.
