Teamwork can be such a wonderful thing, especially when you all have the same vision and drive. It’s a group of individuals, if done right, who can grow to be as close as family. You have each other’s back no matter what, and you’re there to lift each other up when things are down. Most important of all, it’s when there isn’t one person or thing greater than the group.
I feel honored to work with Team Rise Together, a group of people with various backgrounds in entertainment and business. It truly is a selfless group that continuously helps each other. More important, I am proud to call these people friends who I can trust. I know that if I ever need anything in a pinch, I can go to them first. The same thing goes the other way around. There have been numerous times when someone in Team Rise Together reaches out to me, and I’m there in a flash. I am the type of person who loves to help people, and there is no greater gratification than helping a friend in need. I’ve been on a few different teams in the past, but this is the one that I am most proud of.
The beauty of Team Rise Together is that we are still growing. We are far from those exclusive cliques who turn their nose to anyone not involved. If you are a selfless, hard worker who believes in making dreams come true, then we want to work with you. It’s all about strength in numbers. As the saying goes, “Part of the ship, part of the crew.”
Marc Chouen talks about how eventually everyone has to back up what they say. Best way to ensure you deliver when that day comes is by practice.
I’m sure you hear people talk about image all the time. “Think about your image,” “It’s all about image, “Know your image” are quotes that are often thrown around. But what does that mean exactly? I’ll admit, when I first heard this I thought it meant my actual physical image. However, that’s only the tip of the iceberg. When people ask about your image they are really asking about: your brand, your logo, what you represent, and how you are perceived. In business, no matter what it is, this is extremely important to know.
In entertainment image is key. Before I physically stepped into this world full time, I hired a business consultant. At one of our first meetings, he challenged me to figure out my image. What I want to present to others is a classy, sleek image. I want people to see me as a hardworking professional in entertainment. This is what I try to portray in all aspects of my image. If you look at my website, you will see that it has a certain look and feel to it. That’s not by accident. I wanted to make sure the design is a direct reflection of who I am. If what you represent and the public’s perception of you are in sync with each other, that’s a big win. It is something, though, that you have to monitor and always keep in mind. The moment you let that slip, it could be bad for business.
I am very thankful to have a business consultant that to this day still helps me with this. It is something that I am always mindful of. No matter what I do, where I go, or even on social media, I make sure that my image stays intact. Remember…image is everything!
