When it comes to branding, your reputation and success go hand in hand. You will never be successful if you don’t manage your reputation like your life depends on it (because it kind of does), your business is going to experience serious consequences. These things are intricately woven together.
It’s often the simplest of things that will derail your credibility, damage your brand and ruin your reputation. Let’s face it; we all make mistakes. It’s how you hand the problem that determines the eventual outcome.

Lately I’ve been thinking about how branding, your reputation and success go hand in hand. That’s probably because I have a brand new 3 day branding event coming up in October. (More on that a little later.)
These things are so intricately entwined that if you mess one up it will surely affect the other ones and that’s what I want to talk about today. You brand and your reputation can easily become tainted, and these don’t have to be big events that cause the problem. It can be a series of small events, mistakes or just general sloppiness.

I just finished reading a book that is just full of wisdom for entrepreneurs called “The Compound Effect” by Darren Hardy. I am a big fan of Darren's publication “Success Magazine” so I was really anxious to read this book. And I can honestly say I wasn't disappointed.
“Success is often built by taking small consistent steps over time”.
Slow and Steady Wins the Race
One of the main concepts in this book is that you don't have to be the smartest person on the planet, but you have to take those small consistent steps needed EVERY day for success. You’ll notice he doesn’t say some days or most every day; he says every day. Check out his system for setting yourself up for success.

YES YOU DO!
Recently I was asked to do an interview with my friend and fellow real estate investor Al Jones. Al is a minister as well as a real estate investor in Orlando, Florida. It was great getting to spend some time talking real estate with Al, and also hearing about his business and some of the challenges he faces.
One of the things we talked about, was that many of the women he knows just don't believe they can do this business. That is not simply true! He says that they lack the basic confidence to even begin. I believe that we have all known that kind of fear at sometime in our life.
So what separates the ones who ultimately succeed from the rest?
I think it all boils down to one thing; “We feel the fear but do it anyway”. You have to be willing to walk through the fire and know that you will come out on the other side. If your confidence needs a boost, check out this article “Success Is A State of Mind” after watching the interview.
So how do you do that?
I believe that it comes down to three main things:
- First of all, you have to get some education, and you can get if without spending a lot of money. You can get books and DVD's at the library. There also are a wealth of blogs like this one and sites like BiggerPockets.com where you can get a great education completely free. Become a “life long learner”.
- Secondly, you need to find a mentor; someone that can help you when the paralyzing fear sets in. One of the best places to find a mentor is at your local REIA (Real Estate Investors Association). Just look online for a list of all of the real estate clubs in your area.
- Finally, you absolutely must take action. Nothing will happen if you don't take consistent, focused action. Just take baby steps toward your goal, and you will get there. Read the rest of this entry →
