Negativity is poisonous.
No one wants to work with an individual that is overly negative. Don't complain on social networking sites, on the phone, or in person. . . about anything.
Always appear positive and approachable. Negativity will kill your reputation quickly: avoid it at all costs!
Lack of Focus.
Overdoing it will dilute your effectiveness, and people won’t know why to call you
You can't be everything to everyone. Focus on a few key qualities, so you are known for specific skill sets.
Dishonesty will render you untrustworthy.
· Don't make promises you can't keep.
· Don't claim to know more than you do.
· Don't pass other people's work off as your own.
· Don’t embellish.
· Don’t lie! . . . about anything!
Building your reputation is a long-term project that requires commitment and dedication.
You can't expect to have an incredible, and credible reputation within a couple of months of work.
A strong reputation doesn’t just happen on its own. Building your reputation requires consistent and constant work: so keep your promises; post useful information on social networking sites, blogs, and newsletters, attend networking events; and
MONITOR & INTERACT with those talking about you!
Make a (positive) IMPACT!
