Thanks for visiting! My name is Danny J. Liu and I’m a family man and a career technologist.
I love what I do for a living. It wasn’t always that way. I reached a point in my career where things were boring, there was no passion and I simply didn’t know how to transition properly to get out of the rut I was in…but you can read more about my story here.
From using Agile and IT service management best-practices, lean systems and design thinking, I’ve helped small and large companies build out applications, services, infrastructure and support with one core mission…to deliver a best-in-class customer experience while streamlining the entire lifecycle of systems and service delivery to enhance the user experience.
I’ve built this site to take my experience and knowledge of over 12 years in team leadership, technology, automation and productivity to help other professionals like you take their career to the next level…by building your personal brand in a confident, efficient and powerful way!
Ok, so let’s get started! First, I want to make sure we've got some fundamentals in place. So let’s cover the basics about personal branding and why you need one in the first place.
Why build a personal brand?
Have you ever heard the phrase “You never get a second chance to make a first impression”?
A personal brand represents who you are and what you stand for.
When people think of you, they will immediately associate you with several things and it’s the impression that you give that makes all the difference.
In today’s online world, branding yourself the right way can lead to building a long-term solid, consistent positive impression that will attract you the type of opportunities that align with your personal strengths, interests and future goals.
Imagine never having to dread a job interview or sales call.
Through building a brand you will possess the rock-solid confidence that you need for success by focusing on defining your target audience, practicing your elevator pitch and being able to effectively present yourself in a clear and concise way.
Why is it so important?
Because everyday you're indirectly selling your ideas through your communication across your job-seeking efforts, peers, family and friends. Persuasion doesn't mean you have to be a "used car salesman". If done the right way, honestly and authentically, you will generate a positive impact on the world and those around you in a powerful and meaningful way through building a content platform of your own.
How do I get Started?
My mission is to save you time so let's get to it. You MUST start by sharing content on what you know or what you are actively learning RIGHT NOW!
Don't have a blog or website of your own? No problem. If you have a smartphone and a social media account that's all you need to get started today. Be agile.
We’ll cover more about what being agile is, but for now all you need to know is that it is a way you can start putting yourself out there sooner rather than later, and to get real feedback from the outside world to better develop your brand as quickly as possible.
What if I don’t have the time?
If you’re tired of being in the same place in life and want more control over the kind of career and income opportunities you will get to choose from through personal branding, then that alone should motivate you...you wouldn't be reading this otherwise.
Mindset, productivity, focus and consistent action are the keys to success, and although your personal brand isn’t something you build overnight, you can get started on the right foot by following proven website and brand-building strategies today!
