How to Write a Personal SWOT Analysis

Career savviness is learned not taught. You learn through trial and error. After a while, you get the hang of things. This is not a one-time event. You have to continually stay current regarding your own skills and your industry. Whether you feel like it or not, you will have to reinvent yourself in order to keep working. This requires an easy to use tool to make the process easier. A personal SWOT analysis is just the tool to smoothly guide you from one career reinvention to another.

Everyone knows what a SWOT analysis is. This is a tool where you assess your business’ strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. However, do you know that you can apply this same tool to yourself? Yes, indeed! You can conduct a personal SWOT analysis.

August 2017 Progress Report

As I posted on August 1st, I laid out my August goals. It is the halfway mark and I am returning with a progress report.

What I Did Do

  • I’ve celebrated my 2-year anniversary
  • More guest blogging

What I Did Not Do

  • My blogging series
  • Do a Positive Change Radio livestream
  • Promote the online store
  • Create a new email sequence

Celebrating my 2-year anniversary has given me clarity shifting my goals. I have also done some guest blogging. However, I have been focused on Facebook page and the community survey. Furthermore, I am downgrading my Selz store monthly membership. I will do my blogging series and create a new email sequence based on my blogging for two years.

5 Reasons to Always Uphold Your Brand Promise

In business, your brand promise is everything. It tells your customer exactly what he should expect from your brand. It is your form of goodwill which you must uphold at all costs.

Here are 5 reasons to always uphold your brand promise:

Brand promise sets your apart from your competition

Regarding my online eBay store, I ship only domestic and global USPS priority mail. I also offer reasonable prices on tall women’s affordable luxury fashion. The customer knows this every time she enters my store. View your brand promise as your competitive advantage. Your competitive advantage is something that you do better than everyone. 

It’s all about integrity

What does your brand stand for? Regardless of business cycle, maintaining your brand promise is a non-negotiable in business. Brands that don’t uphold it go out of business soon.

Enhances your customer’s experience

Your brand promise enhances and enriches your customer’s experience. Your brand promise creates a tangibility to customer. Since most business is conducted online, tangibility is a great service marker. Upholding your brand promise also means repeat customers and great word of mouth to potential customers.

Internally, as a business, your brand promise connects to your branding strategy

My eBay store motto is ‘giving you Neiman Marcus merchandise at near rock bottom prices’. Combining my motto with my brand promise, strengthens my brand strategy. My brand strategy is to serve tall women (and the men who love them) affordable luxury fashions. Knowing that she’ll get all of these benefits from my store enticing her to buy. This branding strategy also results in a 100% positive feedback rating.

No confusion about what I do (and don’t) offer

I focus on tall women’s luxury fashion. That’s it. Upholding my brand promise clearly communicates this message to the marketplace.

Business cycles fluctuate. Your brand promise shouldn’t. These 5 tips will help you avoid any lapses.

August 2017 Goals

August is here and so are my monthly goals! This month is different because July 31st I celebrated two years’ blogging on this site. I will dedicate all of August towards reflecting back and going forward on spreading more positive change. Here are my August monthly goals:

  • Celebrate my 2-year anniversary
  • Increase my writing frequency
  • Do a new freebie and email sequence based on my 2-year anniversary
  • More guest blogging

Reaching the 2-year mark is huge! There are blogs and social media apps (Blab, Huzza, Meerkat anyone!), that don’t survive two years! I have also published an Amazon bestselling book. This month I will celebrate what I have learned along the way. It is NOT wrong to do a victory lap! Writing down my reflections will also increase my writing frequency. I have been so busy with my two other sites, videos and live reporting that I haven’t written much outside of newsletters (Subscribe here! http://positivitychange.com/mailinglist – Shameless plug!). I intend to devote more focus on writing more.

I will also create a new freebie because what’s the point in celebrating when you don’t have any prizes or gifts? I mean, come on now! Of course, I come bearing gifts. I will create something exclusively for PositivityChange.com.

Finally, after two years and over 100 blog posts, it is time to branch out and do more guest blogging and freelancing. I do see myself using this money and exposure to revamp my site and create more content.
