Design your own brand

Do you find that you’re frustrated with your job and ever wondered what your dream job would be? Did you know that you can design your own brand? I know that may sound a little crazy at first, but the premise behind it is, “everyone has a chance to stand out. Everyone has a chance to learn, improve, and build up their skills. Everyone has a chance to be a brand worthy of remark.” (Peters, Tom; The Brand Called You, August 31, 1997).  
When I read this for the first time, I have to admit, I thought is sounded a little crazy, but why not? Have you thought about investing in yourself? Why not believe in yourself and the talents you possess and what you have to offer?  Why don’t you take a chance on yourself and promote yourself and stand by what you believe?
You should feel empowered to create your own job (Babauta, Leo;  zenhabits). Of course it will take a little work, but you can do it. Just take small steps; do some research, create a goal and create a timeline to achieve your goal.
Begin your journey in finding your own Simple Soul Life.

Welcome to Simple Soul Life. My name is Marcia King. I’m married and have two, twenty-something, daughters. I work full-time as a communications project manager and I’m a part-time college student in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree in communications.
I’ll be sharing information from my own experience and am not by any means or stretch of the imagination claim to be certified or schooled in this matter. My schooling has been solely through the prestigious “school of hard knocks.”  This blog was created to be an interactive tool in attaining/retaining a Simple Soul Life in the journey and challenges of life.
