EP34: Why Your Personal Brand is So Important – Arfan Qureshi (@arfanq)
Episode 34 of the Empowered Podcast features Arfan Qureshi, founder of LionSage, an online resource dedicated to helping young professionals build a powerful, professional brand.
Arfan and I talk about the importance of building and paying attention to your personal brand. Whether you're an entrepreneur, solopreneur, or trying to climb the corporate ladder, you need to be paying attention to your personal brand.
Did you know you had a personal brand?
Go make it count.
To be an online resource dedicated to helping young professionals build a powerful personal brand.
How Arfan defines empowerment:
I'm thinking – Am I investing in the ability to do something, whether in my own goals or in someone else's?
What Arfan and I talked about:
What is the best way to empower other people?
Even though we all have that nagging self-doubt, the best mentors believe in you so much that you start believing in yourself. And that's empowering.
When you decided to do what you're doing now did you face any type of Resistance?
There is resistance every time I do something big. But it makes me know that I should do it. It makes me know that I am reaching the end of my comfort zone and I tell myself…keep going.
What was the last movie you saw?
EPIC Question: What is one tip, or one piece of advice you can give people who are just starting?
Pick the one most important recurring action that is going to move your project forward and turn that recurring action into a habit. A habit is something that you do every day and every day on autopilot.
