     ‘Re-Inventing’ Yourself? Got Transferable Skills?

    @Wayne Yoshida ..excellent advice, great post. It's one thing to know something, but you really need to "price" you understand what you claim to know ! 😉🐝🐝

    Your story with the person on the other end at the hotel reminded me of my own experience not so long ago. The man wouldn't stop long enough to listen to the spelling of my last name, he didn't get my email address right and wouldn't take my confirmation number to look up my existing reservation. He was obviously not suited for the position he took. Great tips you offered @Wayne Yoshida. No one should ever apply for a job they are not qualified to do.

    John, kudos to you for making the positive change necessary to advance your career in an uncertain job market. You provide a good roadmap for others to follow should they choose to take "a leap of faith." Like I always say, no risk no reward. And I'm very pleased that you are reaping the well deserved rewards. I shared this here, on Twitter and on LI.

    @John White, MBA, all 8 tips are great and #5 is simply perfect - but personally, it is the payoff of the last two lines - not having to feel nauseous on Sunday night - that is really what becoming your own personal brand is all about, And we also proved it is far from lonely - there is so much 'power' available once you have built that community. Insights, encouragement, and assistance is merely a comment away.

    Great article dear @John White, MBA!! And four years ago I felt exactly like you, I didn't have any visibility on Google, I didn't have LinkedIn profile, neither Twitter (well I had Twitter with zero tweets which is even worse...), and no web site. And now I look back and see the difference, and I support every of your steps on this article on Inc. Magazine.

    It's a good idea from Tom peters that can energize your career strategy.Everyone should stick around the idea of branding themselves. Branding doesn't mean presenting your past "core skills", but instead positioning the output of your current "core interests" through personal and professional profile on beBee.

    Definitely agree with your premise that in networking be prepared to give and not just to show up to "get". My experience is that being prepared to provide value, without expectation of any return, does come back. Maybe not right away so patience is a requirement

    #6 I totally agree with that, Paul. If you keep emotions, passion and interest of the audience in mind, you will actually influence their decision making more than anything. Quote (thinkwithGoogle) ''Consumers choose the brands that engage them on their passions and interests 42% more often than they do those that simply urge them to buy the product being advertised. As a result, their path to purchase is actually their path to purpose.'' https://www.thinkwithgoogle.com/articles/the-path-to-purpose.html
