Hi, I’m Hannah, I’m a Personal Branding Specialist and Entrepreneur from Farnham, Surrey.
I believe we should live a life which excites us and fulfils us, where we wake up everyday excited for our day ahead, on a Monday as well as a Saturday. I have never been someone who was happy to settle for a less or settle for a life which didn’t enable me to fulfill my potential. For us to truly love our lives and live our purpose, we need to love our work and that starts with understanding who you are, what you love, what you’re good at and what people need. Once you’ve found that sweet spot, your niche, that formula, the possibilities are endless. I love working with people to find the sweet spot and then turn it into a brand and business. Why a personal brand? Because people buy from people! Combining your personality, your passions and your skills enables you to create something totally unique.
Let me tell you a little about my story…
I’ve been interested in Personal Branding most of my life. My parents started the first online business network when I was 6 years old, so social media, personal branding and technology have been part of my life as long as I can remember. In 2012, when I was 19, I started to take a real interest in the topic of personal branding. I spoke at an event and I even interviewed one of the Dragons from Dragon’s Den, Theo Paphitis (interview here) and from then on I was heavily invested in my own personal brand through blogging, video and social media. I understood early on that having a personal brand enabled me to find opportunities others didn’t and this served me through my Degree, my internship at Barclays, my graduate job at Accenture, through my ‘Digital Nomad’ journey which started in 2018 in Bali and into Entrepreneurship.
To me, Personal Branding is about being a leader online, it’s about sharing a message and having an impact. Thanks to the internet and the digital world we no longer have to be rich or famous to be able to have an impact and build a life which fulfills, excites us and enables us to live a life of purpose. I honestly believe that investing in your personal brand is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Personal Branding helps you to gain clarity and confidence and to take control of your future. There are so many people, particularly in my generation who want to have an impact on the world, and by stepping up and by being us online, this is totally possible. We truly can be anything we want to be and the fact that my job is to support people to do that literally amazes me every single day.
I am a big believer of brand first, business second. Businesses are usually an extension of us, so if we can get our core purpose, audience and message right for ourselves, we are far more likely to be able to do the same for our business. At the start of 2019 I created my programme: Powerful Branding which takes purpose driven entrepreneurs and individuals on a transformative personal branding journey through the 6 ‘Cs’ of Personal Branding:
Currently I am working on a 1:1 basis with some absolutely incredible people. From a 7 figure Entrepreneur, to a FTSE 100 Csuite Leader, to an OBE all the way to people on the start of their journey, who have big dreams and are willing to take massive action. Personal Branding is not for everyone, it is not a quick fix, or a customer acquisition plan, it is a long term strategy for your life. It’s not easy and it’s not overnight but it is 100% worth it.
Thank you for coming to my website, I hope I can inspire you to invest in your personal brand and if you’d like some support on your journey, please get in touch or join my Personal Branding Facebook group. 2019 is a big year for me, Powerful Branding is going to become both a book and an online academy and education platform to support passionate future leaders with their personal brands.
Nothing makes me happier than supporting passionate people to go after their dreams. I look forward to joining you on your journey,
