Knowing yourself.

AllBright. Supercharge your career. How well do you know yourself? Watch Sonya Barlow explain how to get to know yourself.

We have less than eight seconds to make an impression online and offline. You have eight seconds to capture someone, to stay in their memory. Even if they don’t remember your name, they remember something about you that sparks an engagement in the long run.

So, ask yourself, how do you want to be remembered? What do you want your legacy to be?

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t started a business. It doesn’t matter if you’ve just graduated. It doesn’t matter if you’re transitioning between your second, your third or your tenth company.

The way you introduce yourself and share yourself with others online and in person, matters. Being able to talk about yourself in a way that feels relaxing to you, is honest, and encompasses all of who you are, and is clear and engaging, is the key to making successful connections.

Watch Sonya share more on this.
