Embrace Reinvention: Unveiling the Authentic You
As a professional female speaker and multi-faceted business owner, I’ve experienced this struggle firsthand. In fact, it’s quite common.
Over time, I realized that to truly thrive and succeed, I needed to reinvent myself and align my public image with my authentic self.
In this post, I want to share my journey of self-discovery and offer you my three-step plan to rebrand your personal image, so you too can embrace a fresh new you and attract the success you deserve.
Throughout my branding career starting in marketing with LVMH and then onto brand photography and videography as a multi-award winning photographer and videographer, without fail, I’ve noticed my clients changing their styling, hair, and energy to reflect their evolving identities.
It made me reflect on my own journey of self-reinvention. I began to question the version of myself that I had meticulously crafted for professional purposes.
Was it truly an accurate representation of who I was?
The answer was a resounding “no.”
The biggest insight that struck me was the realization that the incongruity between my public persona and my true self was holding me back.
This created a sense of internal conflict, leaving me feeling stuck and unable to reach my full potential. So I realised it was time to embark on the transformative journey of reinventing myself…and am I soo happy I have.
Like a release of a pressure valve, it’s awesome to be just me, as over the years my award-winning work has been copied by others, however, I take this as a gift for change to be a better version of me now, to inspire the greatness in others.
Step 1: Reflect and Reconnect
The first step in rebranding your reinvented personal brand is to reflect on your authentic self. Take the time to reconnect with your values, passions, and aspirations. What makes you unique?
What are your core strengths and skills?
Embrace these qualities and allow them to shape your new personal brand.
Step 2: Curate Your Visual Assets
Visual assets such as branding photos and profile-building videos play a crucial role in shaping your personal brand.
To align your external image with your inner self, please consider the following three things:
Update your professional photos: Choose images that capture your authentic personality and reflect the message you want to convey from your core.
Show your genuine smile, exude confidence, and let your passion shine through via your eyes.
Craft engaging videos: Leverage the power of videos to share your story, expertise, and values.
Be genuine and let your passion and enthusiasm for your work come through. Connect with your audience on a deeper level. Let’s do this!
Consistency is key: Ensure that your visual assets across all platforms are consistent and aligned with your redefined personal brand.
This coherence will reinforce your authenticity and help establish your new identity. Exciting times!
Step 3: Embrace the Fresh New You
Now that you have rebranded yourself, it’s time to embrace the fresh new you with open arms. Celebrate your authentic self and let go of the fear of judgment or criticism. No time to worry about what others think!
By being true to yourself, you’ll attract like-minded individuals, opportunities, and success.
Embrace the confidence that comes from aligning your inner and outer selves and step into a brighter, more fulfilling future.
Remember, the journey of reinvention is a continuous process. As you evolve personally and professionally, your personal brand will evolve as well. No doubt, it’s liberating!
Embrace change, be open to growth, and never stop refining your personal brand to reflect the incredible individual you are.
