Today’s guest on the BRAND New Your Show is Sean Scoffield.

Sean reached out to me on LinkedIn after listening to a few of my older podcasts.

We exchanged a few messages and shared a couple of files when I realized he had a unique take on the power of personality assessments such as StrengthsFinder, Stand Out, and the Fascination Advantage.

Specifically, he has developed a method to pull together the results from all of the assessments into one comprehensive document that as he says creates a “tapestry” of your brand.

Ever wondered if personal branding is for you?

In this podcast, Susan Chritton and I discuss when it's time to define your personal brand and more importantly how you define your personal brand.

Personal branding is not reserved for a select few, it's something all of us should be doing to stand out in our careers.

Not everyone listening to this podcast wants to become an entrepreneur in the truest sense of the word. I get that but here’s the thing, many people who eventually become entrepreneurs didn’t set out to obtain that moniker. It happened naturally over time.

You may think that Doire’s book, Entrepreneurial You, is espousing this route. Go be an entrepreneur and if you think that after listening to the podcast, I’m afraid you’ve missed the point.

Entrepreneurial You is really more about kick-starting your journey. Getting you to take small steps, to dip your toes into the water, to fiddle around with different things so you can find something that sticks.  

And when you do find that something, whatever it may be, use her book as a guide to see if you can turn it into something you can get paid for.

While I loved all of Dorie's actionable tips scattered throughout the book, To me, the most important aspect of entrepreneurial you is this notion of preparation. Preparing for things in life you don’t expect because you never know what the future may hold.

What seems secure to you today may not be so secure tomorrow and that salary you hold so dear, the salary that frankly stops you from moving forward and pursuing something you’re passionate about, well, here’s a reality check for you.

It can disappear literally overnight.

Think about that for a minute. What would you do if tomorrow you were called into your bosses office and the HR manager is there to let you know your position has been eliminated?   

In today’s age of corporate consolidation and the coming age of AI and blockchain, this is a very real scenario. Some of you listening may have already experienced this.

So I ask you, what would you do if tomorrow your salary went to zero? What is your backup plan and keep in mind, get another job, isn’t really a backup plan when the mortgage is still due.

As Dorie mentioned, pursuing something on the side is a great way to mitigate risk, provide you with skills, additional income and can ultimately make you less dependant on the day job.

On the flip side, A side hustle may also make you more valuable in the day job, assuming of course if your company values the new skills you've acquired.

So I’ll close out today’s show by asking the question Dorie asks at the end of her book.

What are you working for?

If your answer is the next paycheck, then it might be time for you to consider alternatives, to pursue a passion, to take small steps towards discovering your Entrepreneurial You.

Taking those first steps is not easy, but I promise with each step you take, you will learn and move forward as long as your willing to give up the ghost of what you imagined your career would be, so can finally grasp what your career could be.

Don’t forget to pick up a copy of Dorie’s book, Entrepreneurial You and while you’re clicking things on the screen I’d appreciate it if you added in a copy of my book, CareerKred into your cart as well.

That’s wraps us up for today. Until next time. I’ve been Ryan and I’m out.

On today’s episode of the BRAND New You Show, I speak with Dave Chesson the founder of Kindlepreneur.  At Kindlepreneur, Dave helps authors and aspiring authors sell more books and make more money.

CAREER JOURNEY

Dave started his career as a nuclear engineer.  After spending so much time away from his family Dave decided to take a step back and take a look at his life and how he defined success.  In other words, he took the time to become self-aware.  To define his brand.

He assessed his skills, his traits and most importantly for him, his values and realized that he valued being close to family vs. the direction of his current career path.

Dave realized he had an affinity for internet marketing and decided to re-arrange things his life in order to fit this new direction in.  He decided to cut out things in his life that did not move him in his desired direction such as movie time every night and decided he would get up earlier in the morning.  This quiet morning time allowed Dave to practice and grow in his new chosen direction.  

It took him 3-½ years but Dave was able to build his side business in the margins of his life and now his side business is his only business.  Listen in as we discuss where he started, the pivots he made along the way and how he eventually become the Kindlepreneur.

Hello and welcome to a very special Monday edition of the BRAND New You show or as I like to call it launch day.

Since I spent on last week’s regular show explaining the principles behind the book, CareerKred, I won’t do that again today.  

Instead, today’s show is about gratitude.  

Because the book could not have been written without the guests on this show sharing their wisdom and of course without you listening in each week giving me the motivation and inspiration to continue.

As I reflect back on writing the book I realize that no good work can be done in a vacuum and that all great works come via teamwork.

So thank you for listening each and head on over to Amazon to pick up a copy of the newly released book, CareerKred - 4 simple steps to build your digital brand and boost credibility in your career.

When you finish I'd love it if you could also leave a rating and review.  Thank you for being here.  I appreciate you more than you know.    

Apr 6, 2017

I know it's been a while but season two is officially here.  In today's show, you'll learn what I've been up since the end of season one and when my first book CareerKred will be available.

Don't forget subscribe so you get the latest show on the day it releases.

Michelle wrote an article for Target Marketing Mag titled, Your Job Search is like a Marketing Plan.  In the article, she compares 6 standard marketing tactics to tactics you can apply to any job search.

At a high level, the comparison comes down to having a plan.  A company wouldn’t embark on a marketing campaign without a plan and you shouldn’t start a job search without one either.

To help you get started Michelle walks us through the 6 marketing tactics you can use when marketing your career in your next job search.

Melissa Llarena is the president of Career Outcomes Matter, where she coaches top executives how to prepare for a job interview.

Melissa is an employee transition expert, interview specialist, career coach and blogger. Her articles have been featured in Forbes, The Wall Street Journal and The Huffington Post just to name a few.

She is the author of the eBooks The Mommy shift: A reentry strategy, The guide for landing a global assignment and the ebook we will discuss today How to get back in the driver seat Become the strongest job candidate.

MELISSA LLARENA’S CAREER JOURNEY

Melissa started her career in careers after soon earning a full-ride scholarship from Chase Bank to attend NYU. At the time, Chase, now J.P. Morgan Chase, offered many different professional development programs to participants in their scholarship program.

As a result, Melissa was exposed to many career-related workshops such as how to write an effective resume and how to interview more effectively. Because she attended these courses, she was always surrounded by high-level senior executives.

The combination of exposure to these executives and the workshops provided Melissa with the opportunity to apply what she was learning with her peers for free.

This eventually led Melissa to turn her “pro-bono” work into a full-time business helping senior leaders or corporate Olympians as she refers to them, prepare for job interviews.

THE 90 DAY PLAN

Melissa recommends going into the interview with a 90-day plan. The plan is both for you and the employer. You develop the plan as you prepare for the interview.

The 90-day plan you develop could very well be the plan you follow in your first 90-days in the role. The plan is derived from your research and forces you to scale up your knowledge of the company, the role, the competitors, the skills required, and how you meet or exceed all of them.

The plan gives you a good sense of how you would approach this new role if you were to be hired. In addition, it once again allows the employer to see you in the role as well.

When developing your plan Melissa recommends starting with the job description and using it as a skeleton to draft your plan. Look for “themes” within the job description.

As an example, one theme might be you in the role of leader with five direct reports. In this case, as yourself what will you do with those reports in the first 30, 60, and 90 days.

Will you review their current projects, will you attend their meetings, will you travel with them to a customer location?

If the role is cross functional, how do you plan to interact with your peers over the 90-day period? List out the activities you intend to complete.

The 90-day plan will show you’ve given serious thought to the role and that you’re able to hit the ground running.

I think the 90-day plan framework might just be the best way to prepare for a job interview.

Belma McCaffrey is the founder of the Work Bigger program and the author of the book, How to negotiate without losing friends, fans or job offers.  

At Work Bigger, Belma helps her clients redefine what they call work so they can find their mission and lead with purpose.

THE SIX-STEP WORKING BIGGER CAREER COACHING PROGRAM

1 - Identify your mission

Blema is big on mission, so it’s no surprise this is where the Work Bigger program starts.  Your mission starts with your understanding your values.  From there Belma encourages her clients to identify their interests and activities they are naturally drawn to.  

To determine your interests, Belma suggests considering the books you read or the podcasts you listen to.  Both are easy starting points.

Belma also helps her clients identify their skills and the work environment or tasks where they feel energized.  It’s the intersection of your values, your interests and your skills where your mission lies.

2 - Tell your authentic personal story

Once you know your mission, you now need to tie your mission to your personal story.  This is where you need to connect your past to your future.  

As you develop this story, Blema recommends you develop an ask as well.  The ask is essentially being so clear on your mission that people know exactly how to help you.  

This is very similar to what Olivia Gamber and I discussed during our interview.

3 - Develop a powerful personal brand

Belma considers your personal brand to be how others perceive you and your mission. When you walk away from a conversation do people know what your mission is?  

Belma helps her clients be as specific as possible about their mission. She coaches them to be laser focused and if necessary leave out groups of people who can’t help you achieve your mission.

4 - Develop a Connections Strategy

Belma is not a fan of the word networking.  It sounds too much like work and can be very awkward. Blema prefers to help her clients build a connection strategy.  

Your connection strategy is aligned to your mission and dependent on your personal preferences.  If networking events are not your thing so to speak, don’t attend them. Instead, invite individuals to coffee for example.

5 -  How to properly sell yourself

Belma tells us one reason we feel so awkward about “selling ourselves” is because we are usually doing it without understanding our mission.

Tying your mission to your job search is an easy way for you to sell yourself without feeling bad about it.

The final step in the work bigger career coaching program is negotiation.  Fortunately, Belma has written a book on the topic.

Thanks again for tuning in, and Today, I’m going to talk about something I get asked about a lot but we’re going to get there via a not so straightforward path.

You may remember my interview with Shane Purnell host of the Platform Giant podcast.

During the show, we discussed a methodology for building your platform called CARVE.  

Obviously, CARVE is an acronym and the A in CARVE stands for Accomplishments which includes the various credentials you can earn throughout your career.

As Shane and I discussed, these credentials can provide social proof and evidence that you do in fact know what you are talking about.

However, there is a time, called the zero moment of truth when they don’t matter at all.   
And that my friends is what we are going to talk about today.

What does StrengthsFinder 2.0 have to do with your personal brand?

As you know, I’m a big fan of self-awareness and a critical key to becoming self-aware is to understand your natural talents.  

Today’s guest and I share a lot in common on this topic which was why I was excited to talk to her the first time and why I thought coming off the heels of Discover month on the BYOB show it would be appropriate to bring her back during moving month.

Lisa Cummings, CEO of Lead through strengths wants you to embrace your natural strengths

As the chief strengths sleuth, Lisa brings 20 years of experience in helping people find and leverage their strengths at work.

Her love for the strengths movement began after she read Marcus Buckingham's book “ first break all of the rules”.

A key takeaway from the book for Lisa was how leveraging your strengths at work will make you stronger, yet she noticed in the business world, companies seemed to be focused instead on how to fix what was “broken” with you.

Since then, Lisa has focused her career on developing people and organizations.   


Today, As a certified Gallup Strengths Performance coach, she is obsessed with helping leaders improve performance by leveraging their team's natural talents.

I’m in Omaha, Nebraska this week to attend the very first Clifton Strengths Summit. The Summit is being hosted by Gallup, the company that brings you, StrengthsFinder.  

So for the next two days, I’m going to be hanging with fellow Strengths enthusiasts and geeking out about our Strengths.

As I was flying here today, I started thinking about my objectives for the conference. And yes, you should have objectives or goals of some type when you attend a conference.  

You may recall Madalyn Sklar gave us some great reasons why you need objectives when attending conferences. If you don’t remember, head on back into the archives and check it out.  

For the next three days, I have identified three objectives I want to meet while I’m here and I thought I would share them with you on today’s show.

OH, in case you are wondering, I’m recording this from my hotel room using my iPhone which is why the audio is not quite up to my normal standards.

And while it would have been easy for me to just skip this show this week, considering I’m at the conference and my main computer died on me, I thought doing it this way would serve as a great reminder that you really don't need any fancy equipment to produce content.

You CAN make due with what you have.

Which is exactly what I’m doing with today’s show.  So here you go, my 3 reasons why you should attend conferences.

With the DICE framework, attending conferences falls into the "E" or the Engage step. But you probably already guessed that didn’t you.  

Before I started this journey, I never went to a conference that wasn’t directly related to my day job.  In fact, I had never paid to go to a conference myself.  

Now I go to at least two a year.

Conferences are just a great way to force yourself to get out there and push the boundaries of your comfort zone.  

If it’s true that growth takes place just outside of our comfort zone, then I think we all need to be uncomfortable at times in to stimulate our grow both personally and professionally.  

Conferences can do both in spades.

Who do you think about when I say the science guy?   

Can you name a Self-Help Guru?  Who comes to mind when I say Daily Vlog?

Did someone’s name immediately pop up in your mind? Why did you come up with their name?  Is it because you hear their name often?  Or is it because when you google a specific topic, their name surfaces to the top.

Maybe it’s because you follow them on social media, read their blog or their books.  

Whatever the reason, I think you’ll agree their names came to you quickly because you regard them as an expert in whatever the topic or niche you follow.

Here’s another set of questions for you.  

Who do you think about when I say, electrical engineer?  Don’t follow electrical engineers, no worries, let’s try CPAs or real estate agents.  No? How about human resources?

Do any names and/or faces come to your mind?

Let’s go deeper.  

What if I said name a product manager, project manager, talent acquisition specialist, SEO specialist or recruiter?

I’m guessing you drew a blank for a few of those, didn’t you?  If you did that’s ok, maybe project management is not your thing.

However, when it comes to one specific topic you are personally passionate about, I bet you know who all of the “players” are in the space.

Chances are you’ve also noticed that the top individuals in this space seem to get all of the opportunities.  Whether it be speaking gigs, promotions, etc.  

Why is that do you think?  

Well, that’s exactly what I want to talk to you about on today’s show.  

How your brand, specifically your digital brand, in the eyes of others can lead to additional opportunities and compensation for you.

I’m guessing by now, you’re about all Discovered out.  As you know last month on the BYOB show, all of the episodes have been dedicated to helping you with the Discover step of the DICE process.  

Specifically, how to Discover your brand, through self-reflection in order to uncover your natural preferences, your strengths, and in essence who you are at your core.  

If you’ve taken any of the assessments and you’ve been using that pesky worksheet I recommended you to download at the end of every episode, then you are now very close to discovering what makes YOU, YOU.  

If you haven’t downloaded the worksheet yet or you're new to the show today, first welcome, second, head over to ryanrhoten.com/selfaware and grab your copy of the worksheet for yourself.

You’re going to need for today’s show.  Why?
Well because on today’s show I’m going to walk your through how to create something, I’m asked about often:  Your personal brand statement.

Welcome to moving month on the BRAND New You Show. This month I am doing something I have been talking about and really dreaming about for as long as I can remember.

I’m moving my family west to Colorado.

To say this move is a little stressful would be the understatement of the year.  It’s especially challenging for my high school aged boys, one of whom will be a freshman and the other a Senior.

But if there’s one thing I’ve learned through 100 plus episodes of this podcast it’s that change is good.  Change, or more specifically how we react to it, is what helps to shape us as humans.

For years, I’ve made excuses about why we couldn’t move west even though it’s been a lifelong dream.  This podcast and a tweet from Pat Flynn, helped me realize that my excuses were really just that, excuses.

So after much debate and many financial calculations, The Rhoten family is packing up and leaving the Hoosier state after 16 years.  

I’m telling you this because during this month, as you might imagine, I’ll be doing lots of moving type activities such as packing, loading and unloading trucks, picking up apartment keys, registering the boys in their new school, and the list goes on and on.

So rather than try to squeeze in any new shows, which would not be fair to my guests, I decided to dig into the archives and breathe life back into some “oldies but goodies”.     

It’s funny.  In the online world, they say if you’re not embarrassed by your first attempt at something, then you launched too late. I can honestly say, after listening to this one again, I promise you I did not start too late.  

Exactly 100 shows ago, I hosted this podcast’s very first guest, Tim Saumier.  Tim and I had been working together and he graciously agreed to help this crazy podcaster wanna-be get started.  

Tim, if you’re listening, thank you for having the courage be on a completely new podcast with a host who barely knew what he was doing.  Fortunately for me, you rescued the show with your top rate and evergreen advice on everything from recruiting, to the job search, to interviewing.

And for that I am grateful.

So without any further ado, let me introduce to you my very first guest and interview on the brand new you show, president and CEO of Tyges International, Tim Saumier.
