Stand Up & Stick Out!

Whether you like him or not, everyone knows the name Donald TrumpDonald Trump, host of the television series "The Celebrity Apprentice," mugs for photographers at the NBC 2015 Winter TCA Press Tour at The Langham Huntington Hotel on Friday, Jan. 16, 2015, in Pasadena, Calif. (Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP) He’s ‘that guy’ running for President that speaks his mind regardless of being politically correct. He’s unpredictable, bombastic, entertaining and arrogant.

AND……..he’s the candidate people talk about the most.

In the highly competitive entertainment industry, artists are vying for attention from the media, fans, recording labels, agents and producers. When they make it big, the next challenge is how to stay on top to avoid being forgotten. Lady Gaga appears in outrageous costumes, uses unique props to perform  and constantly finds innovative ways to make her entrance on stage.

In today’s marketplace with more companies competing for the same customer and more candidates looking to fill the same job, how do YOU stand out from the crowd?

Innovation. Do something different. Learn new ways of working, marketing, communicating. In this digital age we live in, calling people has become SO seventies. Reach out and touch someone – really. A personal phone call can make or break a deal because it’s simply being human.

As a keynote speaker I was talking to a company at their annual conference who said they have “Thank you Thursdays”. Employees hand write thank you notes to five people every week. Sometimes it’s to customers in appreciation of their business, sometimes it’s to coworkers for helping out with a project. Do you remember the last thank you note you received? 

Stand up and stick out. It will get you noticed by potential customers and bosses…….in a good way
