EP 15 “ HOW TO BUILD YOUR PERSONAL BRAND NOW” Whether you like to believe it or not, you are already personally branded. My advice is if you don’t create a framework of who you are or who you want to be perceived as, the internet will to do a great job of that with or without your consent. You use the same amount of energy just using social media, be aware of your brand and manage it well. If you use social media for your business, church, or organization and don’t have your own personal accounts, your silence is telling people that you don’t have the desire to be relevant, to have authentic connection with the world around you, and that you just don’t care about community.   Links: FIVERR - http://www.fiverr.com/s2/d1aeaab3cf TAKE OUR 6 QUESTION QUIZ TO HELP GET BETTER CONTENT TO YOU! - https://www.divinehustle.com/quiz   Let's Connect!

[21:16]   What do you value and what are you trying to accomplish in your life. I would take out a sheet of paper and start writing things I care about. Start circling things that have to do with the internal like, faith, generosity, quality time, then circle the things that have to do externally, earning money, community, profession, hobby. Start cutting out the things that don’t really matter, like keeping a record of Instagram posts or likes, pleasing people, allowing people to treat you less than…    Start building a list of what you want to put back into the world. Art, Creativity, friendship, love…   Then write one sentence that clearly defines your message. “I’m John and I’m obsessed with elevating other to tell their story through creative expressions.”   2 – What’s an easy way to build confidence to start branding yourself? [24:54] The easiest and most efficient way to build self-confidence is giving yourself permission to fail. Do things that make YOU happy and fill YOU up. Not what you feel others will enjoy. Stop living like you need to explain yourself or why you do things. If you’re mission is anything like mine, then your actions will show the ideas that you wrestle with.   3 – Is taking inspiration from others okay? What’s the best way to do that without becoming a carbon copy? [26:53]   I read this book Steal like an Artist a while back. I don’t read as much as I should, but I read this book in one day. Being inspired is great, you can be inspired many ways. I’m a filmmaker and photographer by default and I get inspired by waves crashing on the shore, or when I listen to a coldplay album, or when I’m walking through Disneyland without any type of agenda other than to breathe and explore. Steal what inspires you, and recreate it the way you would do it. Everything we are and do is a remix of all the years and upbringing of life.   4 – How much commitment does it take to brand yourself? [30:18] A better question would be, how committed are you to living free, alive, and fully present? You ought to be committed to yourself fully. Social Media and the internet has already committed to building your identity for you since myspace. You can either take control of what people will find about you or let your brand unintentionally build itself through time.   5 – What does a person do if they feel like they don’t have enough time in the day to work on their brand, are there any apps that they can use as tool to help? [32:04]   Yes, if you feel like you don’t have time, something I Struggle with a lot. The reality is that you make time for the things that matter. If building your personal brand doesn’t matter it will show. You’re going to have no strategy, no game plan. If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail. Before I quickly talk about apps and paid programs, I would start by asking, can you make time in your calendar once a week for an hour to set your personal brand up for success? One hour to fill up your content calendar so that you can have time creating or being present than juggling the ideas of what content to be posting. For instance, I used to meal prep, I spend a Sunday afternoon for an hour prepping my meals for the week. That saved me so much time throughout the week where I would normally spend asking myself where to eat, what to eat, and when to eat. It freed me up to be more productive. So what I’m saying is find an hour on a Sunday, or Monday, print out a calendar or take out a piece of paper and write out what your content looks like for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday… Then jump onto a program called hootsuite or platforms like it (which by the way, you can schedule your facebook posts on brand pages), and light it up. I would also check out sites like FIVVER.com where you can pay $5 for someone to create 100-1,000 motivational posts with your name or logo on it. Fiverr is a freelance site where people pay as little as $5 to create stuff for you like videos, intros, logos, they do marketing, they write blogs. I use fiverr a lot to scale my productivity.   Here’s your link to Fiverr http://www.fiverr.com/s2/d1aeaab3cf   6 – What’s the #1 reason people quit branding themselves? [36:26] The #1 reason people quit is because they didn’t see results right away or they forgot why they started. If they are using the internet, branding never stops. I’d just like to be in control of what goes out there about me, then releasing all control over to the internet to build my brand for me.   7 – Is there resources like a checklist I can download to help me with this? [38:15] Yes, glad you asked! You can dive into divinehustle.com/resources and download all kinds of goodies for FREE! Like SWOT analysis, Instagram tactics, brand discovery worksheet. It’s all free!   8 – Is it okay to collaborate from the beginning or do I need to establish myself first? [39:28] The fastest way to grow your personal brand is collaboration. I would recommend laying the groundwork first, defining what you want to do with your brand, then inviting people to join in on your conversation. We’ve made building a brand so difficult because of all the terms marketers use, and what we see brands with big money do, we start comparing our brand to multibillion dollar brands and forget that they’ve put in YEARS of work. My friend told me once that your vibe attracts your tribe, which is absolutely true. You will not reach everyone and if you are trying to you will reach no one. Keep your mentality and message simple, “this is what I do and what I’m passionate about, if you enjoy the same thing, come hang out with me.” Do that every day, post a video, it’s never going to be perfect so just publish it. Put up a quote, post a photo, do that every day and then multiply it by 5 years.       _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Welcome to the Divine Hustle.

EP 16 “BIG VISION” Here reality, you can have a goal without vision. A goal is a risk, maybe you might reach it maybe you won’t. But if you have a vision, it comes from a deeper place, a place that can motivate you when you don’t feel like doing the work. Having a vision is seeing the end result very clearly and having the focus and courage to go through the process and achieving it.

You can’t accomplish everything. If you had 3 things you want to accomplish in life, what would they be? John shares that he wants to: Help people tell their story Produce Wealth Be a dad   The wrong way to Vision Cast 1 - Wrong vision casting is creating an obscure or generalized idea This idea is nothing revolutionary, it’s biblical   “Where there is no vision, the people perish” Proverbs 29:18   “Write my answer plainly on tablets,    so that a runner can carry the correct message to others.” Habakkuk 2:2   2 - Having the wrong vision puts all the weight on one person Acts 2 - Peter didn’t bare the weight of the vision   How do you create a vision that forces you to work with others? If you don’t do that, you are excluding the very people you are trying to include   For example: Divine Hustle has a quiz that listeners can fill out to help us define our content   3 - Wrong vision casting equires constant selling If I need to tell people what the vision over and over again in different ways, then maybe it’s the wrong vision   There’s nothing wrong with repeating the principles.   If you are coming up with a mission statement for your brand or your business or your instagram bio, and people don’t understand it, you need to reshape it. How to get clearer Vision? When you are helping other people accomplish their vision, your vision never stops and never gets tiring.   For example: If your mission is that you want to lose weight. Let’s say you do that this year. Then next year comes then what?   If you mission is I want to lose 40lbs then teach others how to do the same. Well, your mission has gotten larger, because you are involving other people and they have their own journey. Ultimately the mission never stops.   What is your Million Dollar Message? Million dollars doesn’t just happen overnight. It is created by process. Meaning this, what would you prefer. Me giving you a million dollars? Or giving you all the tools to make a million dollars?   What if I told you if you broke down a million dollars to something more digestible you can get there faster.   For Example: To make a million dollars, you need… 5,000 people to buy a $200 product 2,000 people to buy a $500 product 1,000 people to buy a $1,000 product 500 people to buy a $2,000 product 300 people to buy a $3,333 product Or alternatively… Get 5,000 people to pay $17 a month for a year Get 2,000 people to pay $42 a month for a year Get 1,000 people to pay $83 a month for a year Get 500 people to pay $167 a month for a year Get 300 people to pay $278 a month for a year   How to create a million dollar mission: What can you do for someone by when, so they can do what? What is the problem that people have that you can relate to Have you solved it yet? Can you share it? _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Welcome to the Divine Hustle.

Massive Focus.    Links: Start your own Podcast now- http://www.startpodcastingnow.com TAKE OUR 6 QUESTION QUIZ TO HELP GET BETTER CONTENT TO YOU! - https://www.divinehustle.com/quiz   Let's Connect!   John Mediana - Host John's Instagram - Instagram John's Facebook - Facebook John's Twitter - Twitter John's Youtube - Youtube John's Snapchat - @FilipinoSnap John's Website - Website Divine Hustle Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/TheDivineHustle Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/divinehustle/ Divine Hustle email - contact@divinehustle.com http://www.divinehustle.com Social Storytelling Agency Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/storyauthoritymedia Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/storyauthority Website – http://www.storyauthoritymedia.com _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ ----------- Show Notes ----------- BIG FOCUS I talk to a ton of business owners, creatives and entrepreneurs, nearly every day. And about more than half of those conversations are around not having enough time in the day  to make every idea happen. A lot of ideas that are amazing ideas. But 98% of those ideas never get executed. In photography there many different techniques to bring attention to what you want the audience to focus on. My two questions are What is the focus? What is in focus? Two very different questions.   What is the focus? Is more of a wider question. A broad Idea that can be interpreted many different ways. Finish school. Get a car. Find a job.   What is in focus? Is more of a microscopic question. I’m focussed on going to work. Feeling tired every day. Focussed on my fitness.   Here are my four tips on optimizing your focus? Intentionality Sleep Knowing what you want, know what direction you want to go Clarity Cut Distractions   Intentionality How do you measure a successful day? Prioritize: Every night write down Your BIG 3’s for the next day. Scheduling things out.   Sleep Lack of sleep affects your mind, physical body, and mood   Clarity Mark Twain “Two most important days of your life is the day you were born and The day you find out why.”   If you get sleep, you will have more clarity every day to accomplish the mission or assignment you’ve been put on.   Scientists have down the research on the probability of being alive in this very moment, in this very time. And the chances of not being born in the 1800’s or in pre-historic times. The number is 1 out of 400 Trillion. You are a walking, living, breathing, miracle. You can’t convince me to believe that your life has no meaning, no purpose, no mission. 1 out of 400 trillion. Wake up and do something about that.   Maybe you haven’t thought of it like that because of this next point.   Cut out distractions: That means put your phone down. Put down that toxic relationship. Start cutting out those negative people.   Your Focus is valuable, I’ll go as far as saying What you focus on is who you become.   So i want to leave you today asking yourself this question: What do you focus on the most? Negativity? Lack? Past Failures? Past Successes? The Golden days?   If you catch yourself saying, “Man, those were the golden days” You’ve got some things to think about when it comes to the direction of your life.   Ultimately you choose where you want to go. Do you have the Focus to get there.   What do you need to start focussing on? Write them down. Everyday. Over and Over again. You are 42% more likely to accomplish the things you write down. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Welcome to the Divine Hustle.
