When people think of me, Dr. Harold, what comes to their mind? That is my brand.
My desire is that my relational brand conveys authentic engagement, genuine concern, and spirited hopefulness. But, given my nature, this will probably always be couched in the context of faith and pragmatism.
Ultimately, it isn’t very important that I have a lot of degrees. Though I’m proud of them, the awards that I’ve accumulated are just pieces of paper. The accolades that are so graciously directed my way make me feel good. But, if my relational branding is not conveying authentic engagement, genuine concern, and spirited hopefulness then I’ve failed.
God placed me on this earth to “Be the Brand” that he designed from the foundation of the world. Yes, I am a designer brand—not faux or generic. So are you!
It is important that I “Be the Brand” because others’ future depends on me walking in my design.
In my experience there five ways for each of us to be the original brand that we were designed to be.
