“Remember, in life, there are many people who will try and convince you that you can’t do or achieve something. They are energy zappers! Always surround yourself with energy providers.

A brand is the bond you create with those around you and the belief they have in your ability to deliver on the promises you make. You must be consistent in your messages, your priorities, and your ethics.
While technology makes it easier to build your personal brand, your day to day interactions with others are what truly define your legacy. As time passes, memories of projects, meetings, networking events and the like will fade, but your peers will remember what you stood for, what you believed in and how you made them feel. That’s what iBRAND is all about.
The iBRAND concept is about the power of ‘I’- the power of understanding your strengths and your ability- the power to set things in motion- the power to begin to change the world.
The iBRAND should always come first in business and continue to be burnished.
iBRAND is a state of mind that everyone should emulate.
The iBRAND concept is wonderful.
I learned how to be more conscious of my own professional and personal brand. That these are really one in the same and the importance of always being true to your own brand. My brand is all I have, so my world is focused on delivering value in my own personal brand.

“Standards are how you do what you do. They are your personal benchmarks or individual commitments you make to yourself. They are your code of individual performance. The higher your mark, the more distinctive your personal brand will become. Your standards should be well thought out and written down. If it is not in writing, […]
“Style is doing it your way. Style is your personal trademark. A trademark unduplicated by any other human being. Style may be the most memorable core pillar of iBRAND. It can also be the quickest way to end a promising client relationship, business deal, or promotion. Style is how you relate to others. Personal […]
“With the start of a new year, many of us make resolutions with the hope of improving and adding more value in our lives. The first couple of weeks in January are a great time for personal reflection. It is an opportunity to look ahead with enthusiasm and vigor. It is an excellent time […]
The holidays put tremendous stress on each of us. We tend to sign on for more responsibilities than we are used to. Such as charitable organizations, entertaining, commitments at work, family obligations, and the list goes on and on. We all have good intentions in mind, but sometimes it is better to say no if […]
