Hi y’all,

I’m coming at you with great enthusiasm. Yes, it’s a bit early still and I’m trying to wake up physically, however my heart is bouncing for joy. SEE, I reached an accomplishment within an online group (called a “tribe”) that I’m a member. It’s a genuine honor and pleasure to be among the awesome leaders, and I’m truly stoked to “do my part” in making a difference this week!

NOW, onto subject matter … How would YOU like to not only be well known across the net, but also stand out in this age of advertising overload? (I “got” that title from a book I’m reading called “Mind Capture”) NOW, I’m going to show YOU, the independent online entrepreneur how to personally brand, and how I’m going to do this is by offering you a very short list! (I read in Men’s Health last night that men “especially” love lists primarily because it gives the illusion of control. I’m sure you women will get much value out of it also. We all know that YOU can be control freaks too – j/k)

Now, we aren’t going to make this some boring old list. I feel like MIXING THINGS UP A BIT! So let’s have a little fun. 🙂 This is a list of equivalencies aka formulas for success. They all lead up to ONE ultimate formula that will help YOU brand yourself as “the” online entrepreneur and stand out in the age of advertising overload!

YOU.com | What do I mean?

Passion = Niche = Knowledge & Expertise
Purpose = Calling = Ultimate Happiness & Fulfillment
Value = Prospects = Financial Gain & Tangible Riches
Name =  FAME baby!


– Get creative with  your personal branding! Badda Bing Badda Boom BABY!

Now, onto the analysis Dr. Freud. J/k …

PASSION (It “begins” here)

Seriously, when you have passion, all else will follow. It all begins here. It all begins with passion. You wouldn’t be doing what you’re doing unless you had some type of passion driving you. Its easy for the online entrepreneur to see this, but its also a truth in the individuals that are stuck in “the rat race”. (I.e. If you have a PASSION for helping your children, you may go to a 9 to 5 to supply them their needs even though you don’t have a direct passion for your work! As a matter of fact,  you may literally despise it.) There’s absolutely nothing wrong with providing for your family, but when its all said and done, I “personally” would like to say I HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE (EVEN WORKING)!!!

NICHE = KNOWLEDGE & EXPERTISE

This is derived from your passion and also what will come later down the blog post: Purpose = Calling. This is also what will lead to your tangible knowledge and expertise in a given field of study. (It may not be at your traditional college or university BUT IT WILL BE THE BEST DAMN EDUCATION OF YOUR LIFE!!!

PURPOSE = CALLING = ULTIMATE HAPPINESS & FULFILLMENT

This is the spiritual side to your passion. “But Hey Curt! I’m not passionate about what I’ve been called to do?” … most likely you‘re not going to run into this issue, however IT CAN HAPPEN! If you’re not in line with GOD’S WILL for your life then its easy to forget who is ultimately in control (and that is God). Not YOU. Not your Mom, Not your Boss! BUT GOD! My best advice is to pray. Yes, pray to God that your passions be aligned with your given purpose. This is where your Dreams and your Destiny forge a bond that is unshakeable if you live out the calling God has placed in your heart! The Two Become One! … You’ll soon find yourself LOVING ALL THAT YOU DO!

VALUE = PROSPECTS = FINANCIAL GAIN & TANGIBLE RICHES

Instead of pitching your MLM or business to everyone you meet, try providing some value. There is so much truth in the statement, “We can get what we want if we just help enough other people get what they want”. Don’t ever forget that your ultimate purpose on this earth (this is Everybody’s United Purpose “if you may”) is to do good works for a higher power. I suggest planting seeds. NO, not in the soil, but in every heart you come into contact with on a daily basis. When you do this sort of thing and provide something “of tremendous value” to the person you’re meeting, instead of turning them away, you are forging another bong, building a relationship and gaining that person’s trust. THE REST WILL FOLLOW!

SO, We’re down to the final equation:
NAME = FAME

The truth of the matter is Not Everybody becomes famous or popular, but you CAN get people in your corner.

You CAN make a difference which will not only impact the world around you but send blessings your way that you’ve never dreamed of.

YOU CAN CREATE A “NAME” FOR YOURSELF! … It all starts with Passion!

  5. Hi Curt, I love your passion. It’s definitely contagious. It’s amazing to me so many people go through life without even knowing their passion.

  6. Hi Curtis,
    Thanks for sharing this great post about personal branding with your readers! I love how passionate you are as a young entrepreneur for adding value to the world instead of filling it with noise and nonsense. Being creative with how you present yourself is indeed great advice. Too many people try to be someone they aren’t, thinking that if they mimic an already established leader, that will bring them more success. At the end of the day, being the best of who you are is what gets you the most success!

  9. Enjoying your content on your blog. The power of the internet has allow you to touch my heart with passion. Network Marketing is a create business when it’s down right. When you see the passion match your bank account makes the deal sweeter after the long hours of learning marketing methods from SEO, PPC, and Mastering Phones. Training others showing them the secrets are a blessing to seeing them grow as business owners. Well, I am thankful for this post.

  11. Hi Curtis,
    The list is awesome and gets right to the heart of the matter. It does lay out a guide to what people must do to have a richer life. And to start to make an impact on other people’s lives in a positive way. Thanks so much.

  12. Great write Curt.
    Yes you are infectious and have the Passion to go along with it.
    Passion is so important!

  13. I think if you can solve someones problem, and it so happens your product or service accomplishes this, it’s a win/win. The value is in problem solving. Find their pain and make it go away. Having passion (believing in what you’re doing) will keep you at it even if there are times you feel like you’re not going anywhere.

  14. You obviously have a lot of energy and passion for what you do. I’m guessing you write exactly as you talk. Personal branding can seem a minefield to some but you mark the way clearly.

    Best wishes

  15. Curt,
    Have to agree that passion holds the key to it all. It begins and ends there. Passion is what makes you apply the slight edge to everything you do.

    Well done you have made this an exciting post to read, I am a great lover of lists (us females love them too).
    Your list is spot on passion, purpose, value and name.

  17. What’s up Curt! Great intro and love the list. It truly simplifies what some people take 2 or 3 pages to explain.

    Passion is a must to sustain it long term otherwise it’s a job and we’ll burnout.

    Purpose can be something you’re passionate about and scared to do at the same time because it asks you to stretch so you can do something beyond yourself.

    My calling is to serve in lowering suicides here in the US and Japan and empower leaders to do it worldwide.

    Questions like who am I to do this? Am I good enough? It’s a great test of your faith to put trust in God and serve.

    It’s weird how I got into blogging to start an online presence which opened the door to learn marketing online. I’m no marketing expert but I had to learn it in order for it to be worth my time and energy. It’s still in the works and be out within the next 3 weeks.

    One of the key distinctions I’ve learned is the difference between Personal Branding and Marketing.

    Personal Branding – Positioning as an Expert, Credibility, Build Know, Like, and Trust Factor

    Marketing – Finding a need in the marketplace and providing a solution to that need

    Profitable Niche – An irrational desire or need within a specific group of people

    When you blend the branding, marketing, and the niche you are a Triple Crown threat and dominate the market.

    Go 3 for 3 – You’ll be profitable well for energy and time invested.
    Go 2 for 3 – You’ll be average barely getting by.
    Go 1 for 3 – You’ll struggle and lose money.

    When I first got started I went 1 for 3. Right now my website is at 1.5 for 3 where it generates income. In 3 weeks, it will be closer to 3 for 3.

  18. Hey Curt,

    Great unique video intro!

    The one thing I believe many miss in our industry is the “value” part. Without providing true value to others we just become a bunch of “pitchmen” pushing a product.

    Only when we learn to understand our customers and start leading with the solutions to their problems a shift starts to happen in our business.

    In Success,

  19. Curt,

    Your energy in infectious. I am tempted to want to squeeze creativity in there somewhere. One could argue it falls under Knowledge, but I don’t think so. Sometimes you need to be still and allow the information you have collected to organize itself. To me, that is creativity which drives uniqueness.

  20. Curt,

    Talk about hitting the nail on the head. When I first started getting into network marketing, I wasn’t sure what my passion was. I just know I wanted to have my own business.

    It wasn’t until I started hitting brick walls did I realize that I did not want others to face the same issues, therefore, teaching others to market online became my passion. And now — I am running with it.

    Whether or not you have an existing passion or need to find yours, TODAY is the day to start believing in yourself and just go out and pursue your dreams!

    Really enjoyed reading about the importance of Passion.

    Love the way you tied it all up.

    Thank You Curt!

  23. Hi Curt,
    Passion drives the man or woman…without passion the task becomes a chore.
    I agree with Michael everthing else will come into play.
    Great post…just joined TSA so many quality people here.
    Cheers

  24. Hey Curt,

    Entertaining as always….Recently I have really been thinking about the “niche” topic you discussed. Not only should we align with our purpose but we should not try to be the expert in everything. If you don’t get burned out…You will run out of time.

    Pick something specific and go after it.

  25. Loved your post Curt. All 6 are very true, but that first one is the biggie. I believe that if you have the passion everything else will fall into place because you just naturally do the rest of the list.

    Thanks again,

    Michael
