    What Your Personal Brand does for Your Business

    According to Entrepreneur.com this happens when you build your personal brand correctly:-

    561% more reach from employees sharing business brand messaging
    Content is shared 24X more frequently
    8 X more engagement from employees VS brand
    Many business leaders and small business owners that I speak to have heard the words ‘Build Your Brand’ or ‘Branding’ or ‘Personal Branding!’

    But many don’t yet realize personal branding is the most powerful way to build their businesses!

    Your personal brand can support your business brand and visa versa

    You can build your business brand and then build your personal brand alongside it or you can do it in the reverse, it just depends which one is going to deliver you the right amount of traction.

    Your personal brand can benefit you as well as your business. Solidifying your personal message can attract new clients and grow your business.

    Your personal brand must be authentic!

    Social media is for conversations. Don’t be afraid to use your own voice and opinions to express yourself and share ideas.

    Promoting news about your company alongside your own personal brand expands both your and your company’s influence. Such promotions may help you gain clout at industry events and even attract job offers from competitors.

    #32 @Hector Fong Mendoza los cursos van dirigidos a empresarios, directivos, mandos intermedios, emprendedores, trabajadores, funcionarios, autónomos, coaches, consultores, formadores, etc... y la metodología está basada en un poco de todo, técnica, académica pero sobre todo en experiencia, la más real de todas, la más directa y contundente. Es una formación directa, totalmente práctica, reflexiva, contundente... nada de teorías, juegos, entretenimientos, dinámicas de grupo ni nada de eso, es mucho más intensa, más efectiva, no hay pérdida de tiempo. Por supuesto, tampoco hay frases motivadoras ni películas de Will Smith "En busca de la Felicidad" :-)

Tengo un amigo que es entrenador de fútbol pero nunca ha estudiado ni tiene preparación específica de entrenador, eso sí, lleva toda la vida metido en el fútbol... Tampoco quiere decir nada que lleves toda la vida en el fútbol para ser un buen entrenador, lo mismo te falta estrategias, visión de equipo, carácter concreto, templanza, etc...

    Nadie nacemos, sabidos, sino que vamos aprendiendo. Hay cursos que son buenos y otros no tan buenos y como se dice que de hasta lo malo se aprende, me supongo de los menos buenos también. Para mi con los cursos de lo que sea, se aprende algo, que antes no se sabía, pero se aprende la base, luego depende de cada persona si puede o no poner en práctica o desarrollar esos conocimientos. Yo cuando empecé a vender colores, no sabía ni lo que tenía en mi mano. Podría contar un montón de anécdotas. y con el paso de los años y de lo que me enseñaron los clientes fui aprendiendo. Por eplo. No por hacer un curso o un cursillo de ventas ya soy el mejor vendedor del Mundo. Paro da gusto y siento orgullo y satisfacción, cuando hace poco me encontré con un competidor de aquellos años que me preguntó. ¿Como lo hacías que nos tenías a todas las marcas maravillados? Pues mira, le dije que yo vendía con el corazón y no con el bolsillo, a la vez que explicaba a cada cliente lo que le intere$aba y no lo que me intere$aba a mi y así iba sembrando todos los días. El resto ya lo sabes.

    Muchas gracias por tu respuesta @Juan J. Tamayo. Era una duda que tenía.
    Juan J. Tamayo
    20/09/2017 #19 Juan J. Tamayo
    #18 Por supuesto que sí @Carmen 🐝 Juanes Luis el respeto es lo primero, es esencial, fundamental, básico, es lo más a tener en cuenta, por eso es una falta muy grande de respeto (monumental) el que haya gente o empresas que vayan vendiendo Certificados de Coaching para ser Coach en cuestión de varias semanas o meses, además de ser algo intolerable y un fraude muy grande (que por mor del negocio se ha extendido y se ha creído que ya es válido) es toda una estafa a personas que se han gastado un suculento dinero (miles de euros o dólares) para creerse que van a arreglarle la vida a los demás tan solo porque han estado durante unas semanas o meses tragándose una serie de conceptos, definiciones, datos, análisis, diagramas y haciendo como bobos unas dinámicas de grupo pueriles...

    ¿Eso no es una falta de respeto? Por favor!!!... Lo malo es que haya gente que por "interés" propio (se han gastado el dinero en sacarse un certificado) defiendan lo indefendible y vengan ahora ofendidos o molestos...

    Por supuesto que sí @Carmen 🐝 Juanes Luis ante todo hay que ser respetuosos con los demás, pero también éticos, responsables, honestos y honrados, sobre todo... ¿Cómo se puede pretender ser Coach si luego no se es nada de eso?

    No crees?

    #13 Hola de nuevo Hector para mí, personalmente, un Coach de vida, sobre todo lo que tiene que tener es eso, mucha vida, mucha experiencia de vida. Haber estado arriba, abajo, en medio, en un lado, en otro. Haber conocido la alegría, la tristeza, la soledad, la ruina, la riqueza, el dolor, la humillación, la prepotencia. Y por supuesto, haber superado todo ello asumiendo que gracias a todo ese "calvario" de vida (la suya) puede llegar a comprender tanto a los demás como a sí mismo, y a la vida en sí.

    Un Coach "de vida" debe tener eso, mucha vida, además de mucha sabiduría, porque se puede tener mucha vida pero no haber aprendido nada. Y ser sencillo, honesto, responsable, comprometido, solidario, humano... Ciertamente para mí un Coach de Vida sería como encontrar a un sabio... Por eso digo que un Coach que se haga en cuestión de unas semanas o meses no vale, ya pueda tener todos los estudios o carreras del mundo. La "carrera" más importante es la sabiduría, al menos en lo que respecta al plano personal. Lo profesional, técnico o académico es otra cosa. Profesional, técnico o académico puede serlo también un robot o un ordenador.

    Héctor, te dejo aquí un vídeo que hice ya hace un tiempo sobre cómo ser un buen Coach de verdad, a ver qué te parece. Puedes estar de acuerdo o no, eso ya es cosa tuya. Un saludo cordial :-)

    Healthcare "Insurance" can and should be unhinged from employment. For all those that say it cant be done, it already is in the overseas markets. As an expat the plan stays with you, no matter where or whom you work for (carrier specific restrictions apply - consult an agent for your individual needs) And the rates are significantly lower than the U S - because of policy continuity and market realities.
    These solutions could be deployed to America - but the monied interests are not interested in bringing those products to market.

    #13 @Dean Owen Many 🙏for your informative reply. That's good to know. It appears there has been a lot of sensational China bashing in USA media. Thus, I appreciate hearing your firsthand account to help dispel some of the media hype that runs rampant. Thanks again and good luck with everything over there! 😇👏🌎

    #18 Thanks for the share @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher! We also have a bit of a problem with smog here in SA too. In the winter you can see quite a dirty haze over Johannesburg, this is mainly due to all the cooking fires that have been lit....

    Very interesting to view these and I had no idea China had so many replicas. Actually beautiful to view and of course I love photos! Ken mentioned Las Vegas, so true... multicultural buildings everywhere. We have reduced our smog in the US but still have a long way to go. I remember when we were kids and would drive to Cleveland Ohio with my parents, the closer we got, we were told to roll up our windows (yep before we had a car with electric windows). The smog was so bad you could taste it even with the windows rolled up. I believe there are still cities within the US that have smog issues, San Fransico being one. Thanks for sharing this @Claire L Cardwell!

    #13 Thanks @Dean Owen - it's awesome that China has such a proactive environmental policy and I wish it was the same in England. Yes the 'pea souper' fogs are of the distant past, but when I worked in London for a while about 15 years ago I had to walk the long way around from Waterloo to work as if I walked over Waterloo Bridge I would be breathless and about to feel that I was going to have an asthma attack by about half way....

    #12 Thanks for the share @David B. Grinberg! Another thing to consider is the often poor quality of the cement, steel and engineering of a lot of Chinese buildings. I've seen many photos of buildings that have collapsed and we have a problem here in SA with cheap Chinese imports of cement etc. which have also caused buildings to fail. I also think it's appalling that people have to venture outside with masks on.......

    Loys of copycat architecture on india too. But most of it is not serving its prescribed purpose. Instead it is about disregarding the orignal so that some networked undeservig guy secures a Govt contract loaded with a lot of tax payers money.

    I would rather look at the scale at which China has done it to actually improve the Urban Infrastructure and how it improves the basic denominators of a good life for the people.

    #12 I look out my window and see a crystal blue sky. I live in the fastest developing city in the world. I read an article last week stating China is now the global leader in climate change reform. Combatting pollution is a priority in the current Five Year Plan. I look at what China has achieved, building cities to accommodate the urbanisation of 400 million, a road and rail network that is the envy of every nation, infrastructure that makes the West look positively archaic. There has been a heavy price to rapid and unprecedented growth, but that is true of every nation. Remember the perception of London as foggy? The Great Smog of London in 1952 killed upwards of 12,000 people, and Churchill responded as is Xi Jinping responding right now. Unlike many Western nations who tend to sweep things under a rug, the Chinese government is proactive and responsible, recently setting up an environmental police force and adopting a whole slew of other measures. Could they do more? Well certainly, every nation could possibly do more except perhaps for Bhutan, the Maldives, and some other smaller nations. But China is heading in the right direction whereas it appears the US has just done a major U-turn with the appointment of Pruitt as EPA Chief. China will remain committed to the Paris Accord even if the US drops out.

    Thanks for sharing this interesting buzz and great photos, Claire, which I've shard in three hives. I agree with you that "the scale of China's architectural copying is breathtaking." It appears that Chinese cities are building and developing so quickly that there are many unintended repercussions, perhaps the most dangerous being the health threat to the Chinese people -- some of whom literally can't breath outdoors without masks. Some Chinese cities don't even see the light of day some days due to terrible smog and pollution, which should be inexcusable. No citizen of any country should have to wear masks to protect themselves from toxic pollution levels whenever they venture outdoors. Thus, the Chinese government would be wise to strike an appropriate balance between massive construction and environmental degradation. The status quo is simply untenable and taking a huge toll on the health of the Chinese people -- which should be priority #1. @Dean Owen, any thoughts on these points?

    #8 @Ken Boddie you are so right, all you have to do is walk around most big cities in the world and you will find them choc full of colonial architecture. Architecture in London borrowed a lot from Greek and Roman Architecture. There are a lot of colonial buildings in Johannesburg and Cape Town that look very European in style. There is even a miniature Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomfe in Parys in the Free State. A friend & I discovered it by accident when we got lost.... Will post pics later!

    Great share Claire! I guess it also reveals the appreciation that Chinese have for art and architecture worldwide if they go to such lengths at reproduction. (Of the civil and structural kind obviously ;) Imagine having such miniatures in every country as a celebration of global art and architecture! (With some Augmented Reality and VR headsets thrown in for the visitors to compare with the real thing while on a visit!) I was brwosing through some local architecture links recently and this one on the Kailash Temple had me going for a while (have yet to see it though)...there are enough mysteries already!

    We westerners are, I suspect, too quick to ridicule the Chinese copy, Claire. Perhaps these architectural clones are evidence of an identity crisis, as a new middle class society emerges from the feudal system and associated magnificent architecture of China's past. China, with its indomitable focus on impressive development, will undoubtedly move through this localised clone phase and emerge into a new and even more magnificent order eventually. Before we scoff let us think of Las Vegas and the many copy cat buildings in the various former colonial countries, including Australia and the USA. Thanks for the thought provoking post, Claire.

    #6 @Dean Owen Huaxi is only one of the places I would visit in China.... the Hanging Temple is an amazing feat of architecture. I wouldn't spend more than 2-3 hours in Huaxi!

    #5 Take Huaxi off your bucket list and see the real marvels of China, Pingyao, The Summer Palace, the Hanging Temple at Cuiping Peak, Xian, Jiuzhaigou, Yunnan, Lijiang, oh too many to list.....

    It is fascinating I agree @Phil Friedman - it would be awesome to go somewhere like Huaxi, the village of knockoffs or Thames Town.... i found the fact that Chinese Emperors celebrated the defeat of their enemies by replicating their architecture very interesting.... I wonder if China is busy taking over the world by doing the same thing in the 21st century.....

    #1 Thanks, Claire, for the tag. It is fascinating that the Chinese, who have the Great Wall and other timeless masterpieces, are copying architectural notables from the West. Then again, not so strange, I suppose, as disassembling the 1831 London Bridge (not the Tower Bridge) and re-assembling it in the Lake Havasu, AZ area.

    I've been to some of these. Thames Town is actually a nice place to live and kind of reminded me of the Docklands. I would have bought a house there had the commute to Shanghai not been so harsh.
