The best advice I ever received in college was, “if you cannot do PR for yourself, then you should not be doing it for someone else.” This was from one of my favorite PR professors, and she is living proof of what it means to “sell yourself” every day of your life.
By taking on this approach with my blog, I have helped myself be more confident in myself and my abilities to stand out in the crowd. Yes, I may not have a high following, but not everyone with more than a million followers across social media is actually engaging with their audience. To me, that means more than a huge following.
So, this month, I am taking it a step further and introducing a Google+ Hangout monthly series for my followers on how they can improve their brand — YOU!
