Introducing Brand Yourself!

Well, hello world! For those of you that know me, know that Brand Yourself, LLC has been a dream of mine since about 2004. It was in the last year that I finally decided to take this concept and turn it into a business - yep, I jumped and have been told by multiple people that my 'net' will appear! In the Northfield, Faribault and Owatonna areas I've branded myself (yes, pun intended) as a person that is fairly well connected and creative in my marketing abilities. I know marketing. I get the meaning of networking. What I have learned in the last year was that not everybody thinks like I do (although I tend to act otherwise), and that I have the ability to think 'outside the box' for both my business and yours. I am passionate about what I do and love bringing that excitement and knowledge to other businesses.

Brand Yourself, LLC will offer a variety of both print and online marketing packages to small business owners including campaign design and implementation, social media management, content development and distribution, as well as just brainstorming sessions to jump-start YOUR marketing brain.

This website is intended to be a resource for you and your business as well as an avenue for me to share what I am working on and learning about as it pertains to the marketing/advertising industry. Feel free to offer suggestions and feedback! If you have questions or would like more information please feel free to contact me directly.

I also would like to take the opportunity in my first blog post to THANK everyone who has listened to me, motivated me and encouraged me in this venture. You all know who you are. Without the love and support from all of you I wouldn't be here - branding myself - today. My husband, Jason, brought home a quote from work for me a couple of months ago that I've carried with me during this process:

"Anything I've ever done that ultimately was worthwhile ...initially scared me to death" - Betty Bender

Here it goes. Wish me luck, I'm looking forward to it!
