Ever tried answering the question, “So what do you do?” only to find yourself sweating a little bit? In this two-and-a-half-minute video, I break down exactly how you should (and how you shouldn’t) label yourself. Check it out and then leave a comment letting me know exactly what YOU do.
The way you describe yourself MUST be backed up with real action.
- If you’re labeling yourself as a writer, you should be writing.
- If you’re labeling yourself as an entrepreneur, you should be doing legitimate entrepreneur things.
Never hype yourself. Let your friends and customers hype who you are. Use the words they use to describe you. Ask yourself these questions:
- What do my friends say I am?
- What have I actually done?
- What am I currently doing?
- Label and describe yourself based around the answers to those questions.
It all comes back to action.
- You have to do a LOT of it for people to actually notice what you’re doing.
- Repeated action creates momentum.
- Momentum attracts eyeballs.
