"Have you noticed how some of today's biggest brands seem to have popped up out of nowhere and become overnight successes? I always wondered how that was possible. Is it just a matter of having one genius idea that no one else has thought about, ever? Or is it that these hugely successful companies are started by billionaires who have the money and contacts to create something that we could only dream of?
As it turns out, no is the answer to both of those questions -- all we really need is a bit of creativity!"

Do you take action?
Barbara Corcoran, founder of The Corcoran Group, co-star of TV's Shark Tank and author of Shark Tales: How I Turned $1,000 into a Billion Dollar Business, says people who have a concept but not necessarily a detailed strategy are more likely to have that entrepreneurial je ne sais quoi. "I hate entrepreneurs with beautiful business plans," she says.
Can people separate you from your competition?
When they land on your social media about page or profile, do they know it’s you?
In a sea of similarity, standing out online is essential. You must share your skills, talents and WOW factor to be memorable.
My latest post on the blog gives you four quick ways to stand out online!
Tip: Begin Where Others End
Many of your competitors were first adopters. They hopped on social media, threw a whole lot of content at it, spent a bunch of hours trying to understand it, and ultimately burned out.
Now their social profiles stand as a testament to a trial and error strategy. Back to a time when the social media plan of "throw it at the wall and hope it sticks" was acceptable.
Today it takes far more than showing up and posting content to succeed at social media.
To create differentiation, commit to being consistent and strategic in your social media efforts.
Look at your why (why you're spending time on social media) and your what (what you will share that will better your customers business or life) and how (how your product or service will help them get there easier, faster or economically).
Now build a team and network that supports your vision and moves you closer to growing your brand!
