It has been a busy past few weeks for me as I have been flying around the country, speaking at various cities to teach my “Personal Branding and Social Media Basics” mini-workshop for Philam Life’s financial advisors. Aside from Manila, I have been to Cebu, Davao, Baguio, and many more cities to come.
But before we proceed, I would like to thank Philam Life’s Premier team headed by Orange Galsim and her crew Resa, Bea and Buddy. It’s my first time to conduct private speaking engagements and I can’t thank them enough for the trust and support. The lesson here, for you freelancers out there, is to just be consistent and continue building your personal brand. In time, brands and companies will come knocking on your door. Just keep pushing.
For this episode of the Freelance Blend Podcast, I share with you a recording of one of those workshops.
This episode was recorded in the cool city of Baguio and since the session lasted for about 2 hours, I split it into 2 episodes, according to the two main topics: Personal Branding and Social Media.
Part 1 is about Personal Branding and how it can help financial advisors (or any sales professional for that matter) build a powerful personal brand that can help attract profitable clients.
Here is the outline of my talk that will serve as a visual guide of what I discussed during the workshop:
