Networking can be a great way to meet new professional contacts. Typically, you attend an event like a mixer, chamber meeting, or conference and hand out business cards to the people you meet. At the end of it all, you’re left with a pile of business cards with no memory of the faces that went with them.
Love it or hate it, Miley Cyrus is smart. I have to admit that I didn’t know much about her prior to last year (2013). When Hannah Montana came out, I was just beyond the age demographic the show was targeting. I vaguely knew what the show was about, but I was very aware of its popularity. So, when she suddenly became a topic of conversation, I rolled my eyes and thought, “another child star gone bad.”
“A personal (brand) is more than just a creative name, cute logo, or a complimentary card; it's a promise of value, it's a distinctive voice, it’ s a core message, it's passion driven by purpose, it's a positive impact that creates an impression.” – Bernard Kelvin Clive
