How To Build A Brand As A Creative Entrepreneur

When I was a copywriter in a big company I didn’t have to think about myself as a brand. I got paid, did my job and that was it. But being an entrepreneur becoming a brand can be essential for your success. Gary Vee says: “people struggle with being real with themselves.”

“You can fail in what you don’t want. So you might as well do what you love.” – Jim Carrey

Finding your purpose, knowing what life is all about? Isn’t that what we all look for. This morning I watched an excellent movie from a speech Jim Carrey gave to some graduates. In a very inspiring way, he tells them how he found his way in life. And about his father’s part in finding that. His purpose was to free people from concern. That was what became his mission. We all can give the world something: what will they need what your talent can provide? We are so much more than our personalities, our masks and the roles we play in our lives. Who are we beyond that? Mind for the risk just to go for success. Because the ego will tempt us with the promise of something we already possess. We all have to take the risk of being seen in all our glory. Relax and dream up a good life. Watch Jim Carrey’s Commencement Address and feel inspired as I was…

What did it do to you? How does it make you feel about your purpose? My one is to allow people to grow in their lives. I found my purpose in blogging and building my own online business. It all started by watching the Free On-Demand Video Series from Stewart, my mentor. Key in this is dreaming up a good life like Jim Carrey already said. So why not go for it yourself and Watch the Free Video Series.
