Side Hustle 6/20/19: Build Your Personal Brand

How To Hustle This Week: The best way to build your personal brand online.

Every time you post online you’re building your brand, so make sure it’s something you are 100 percent behind. We’ve gathered the top five tips on crafting a solid personal brand that looks great in both your inner circles and in your professional network. Two of the top tips include: Solidify your values and identify what makes you unique. Consider what you want to hold yourself to and implement it, ensuring your website (if you have one) and social media profiles look uniform in these values. Distinguish yourself because blending in is not the goal. Follow our steps and take control over how you’re perceived online. [Swirled]

A Dose Of Inspo

Samira Kazan — @alphafoodie on Instagram — has an account full of gorgeous, bright food creations. We were so excited when we had the opportunity to sit down with her as she shared her secrets and helped us learn how to style the perfect post. Before you jump into a project, plan out what your vision is, it’ll make the creative process more efficient. Next up, aesthetic is everything so choose colors that have a matching hue. They tend to work better than colors that compete with each other. Regardless of what you post, remember that food photography is all about fun— Don’t take yourself (or your posts) too seriously.
