So how does your blank sheet of paper look? How do you want it to look? How many people do you have working for you at your current company that are A-plus quality and irreplaceable? Do you want to define the moment or let the moment define you? The choice is simple and is yours to make.

Have you ever thought about where a person’s email address comes from? Does it have something to do with their brand? Yes it does. Watch this one-minute video as I explain this concept in more detail.
First, you have to think of their email name. It is likely unique to their brand in some way. Does the name tie to their birthdate? Their name or nickname? Their hobby or favorite number? I have seen people do all of these.

So, why does all of this matter? You must study the deep “why level” and under the surface things people do to really understand another person. This was an easy example of one way to do it. Remember, as I discuss in my recently released book, “Would You Buy from You? Your Brand Makes the Difference,”that we must think in an “under the iceberg” way to truly understand another person. And, yes, once that is done, it is your brand that makes all the difference.
