It happened to me. A few years ago, I finally took my own advice. So my advice to you, is remember to take your own advice.
Brand YOU. In other words, share your heart, your point of view, and start, if you haven’t already, being a bit more “public” about who you are, what you are up to, and how you show up in our world. It’s your choice, and a delicate balance about how much to share online.
