Your reputation is what others say about you. But what do you say about yourself?  Discover the hidden secrets that can improve your reputation – one story at a time.

The stories we tell others begin with the stories we tell ourselves.  Get clear on the message inside your head, if you want to influence and inspire.  Here’s how to transform your reputation, in two minutes or less.

Get Control Over Your Message – Get Control of Your Reputation

While I was getting prepared for my keynote on “Managing Your Reputation”, I wanted to put some ideas on video.  So, I threw on the busiest old black t-shirt I could find, and fired up the camera.

Sometimes I worry about being too formal and businesslike in my videos.  You know why?  Because I’m formal and businesslike.  Not sure if I can change my reputation there, but at least I changed my shirt.  But conveying who you are is about more than just clothes, tattoos, hairstyles or lifestyles.

Externals are easy; it’s the internal stuff that really makes a difference.  If you are serious about self-expression, maybe it’s time to focus on your story.  I believe that what’s going on inside of you is what really matters.

Does your reputation precede you?

If so, what are others saying? If you want to influence, inspire or persuade, your personal brand message is where it all begins. For your company, your product or your services, managing your reputation is critical to your ability to succeed.
