A few years ago I had the pleasure of hearing Kate White, former editor of Cosmopolitan magazine, speak to an entrepreneurial women’s networking group.
Ms. White shared with great vision, honesty, and humor, many of her business and life experiences that have caused her to become stronger and successful.
Naturally, I bought her latest book, I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This: Success Secrets Every Gutsy Girl Should Know, that was available for sale at the end of Ms. White’s talk. I simply couldn’t resist getting more of her experience and advice, and halfway thru, I was not disappointed.
Kate White refers to a lesson in branding yourself from, my secret crush, Donny Deutsch an advertising and marketing guru who I’m pictured with above. Donny Deutsch.
Donny, yeah I wish we were on a first name basis, stated:
“that a brand is a set of values. Values are your beliefs and what make you you . Your brand isn’t how you wear your hair, what color your eyes are, or how you dress. Values are at your core. Your brand values actually inform your dress, your look, and how you act.”
I love his last line!!
The majority of my clients are women entrepreneurs who realize that their personal image is a large part of their professional brand image and they want to be sure their values are being seen in a positive and authentic manner.
The first time Donny Deutsch and I were at the same affair, he asked me what I do. I now know he was really asking, how do you brand yourself?
I told him that I am an image consultant and show women how to look younger, thinner and taller. He smiled, and responded with an approving nod and stated “very nice”! He approved of my brief mission statement, and I was proud of my brand image and values. It also was quite nice to chat with my branding expert idol.
P.S. He also flashed his twinkling eyes and smile at me and said he could use some styling advice too. Wink, wink.
