Notebook needed

Penny Haslam new notebook

I hope you got a new notebook or lovely pen this Christmas, a small but wonderful gift for creativity and getting organised. I got sent a pen, made of wood – I know, how very eco!

I mention this because making yourself a little bit famous requires focus, effort, planning and most important of all, taking notes.

If you’re serious about powering up your profile and building your brand, you should be making a note of:

  • The TV and radio programmes you could appear on.
  • The speaking or panel discussion opportunities for which you can suggest yourself.
  • The ideas that come to you at strange times that you never remember. These are so useful for stories, comments and examples that hook people into what you’re saying.
  • The news or industry latest you come across, that would make good blog-fodder or a mention when you take part in a panel. This also helps you keep up to date with your subject area.
  • And, why not make a note of what you’ve done or who you’ve approached. So easily forgotten in our busy lives as we whiz onto the next thought or activity.

You can look back at the end of the year and say “yes, I achieved, I have made great strides to making myself a little bit famous.”
