A Nanny is needed for a brand new babe!
You must be kind, you must be witty.
Very sweet and fairly pretty.
Change my diapers, wash my socks.
Then comb my pretty long locks.
Take me on outings, give me treats.
Sing songs, bring sweets.
If you will love me like your own daughter and
never smell of barley water.
If you won't scold and dominate me,
I will love you like family.
Educate me on the ways of T&T
And I will show you the world
As far as the eye can see.
If you think this is you and you liked my rhyme.
Book your appointment and select a time.
But hurry don't delay because by Saturday I'd like to play.

TAXPAYER RELATIONS SECTION
"Changing the way we interact with People!"
Your personal brand statement is not an anemic
job description stringing together your functional
areas of expertise. Instead, it represents your prom-
ise of value to your next employer, and it should
Understand first that we all already have a personal
brand or reputation. Everyone is known for their own
unique set of attributes, strengths, and passions that
drives them at work and in life. Maybe you haven t
thought about the defining characteristics that dif-
ferentiate you from everyone else?
To put your brand to work for you in your job
search, you ll need to pull together all the pieces that
make up your value proposition in the marketplace.
A vibrant personal brand statement makes it that
much easier for those assessing you to get an indi-
cation of whether you will be a good fit for their
Answer These Questions:
Here are some questions to help prompt you to
uncover and craft a crystal clear personal brand mes-
sage that will resonate with your target audience.
Take the time to dig deep when you re working
• 1. What are you most passionate about?
What do you care deeply about?
Think about the activities, interests, situations,
and challenges that fascinate or excite you and energize
you. Your passions are the things you can t wait to
get to each day and feel cheated when you don t get
the opportunity to do them. How do your passions
converge with what you are best at doing and the
value you offer your next company?
• 2. What are your top 3 or 4 personal
attributes -- the things that define how
you make things happen?
Think about how those around you (at work and
elsewhere) describe you. Ask them for feedback about
these things. To give you an idea, here are some pos-
sible attributes, but don t limit yourself to these:
Collaborative, resourceful, flexible, forward-think-
ing, risk-taking, connected, visionary, diplomatic,
intuitive, precise, enterprising, ethical, genuine, acces-
• 3. What are your 3 or 4 greatest strengths or
top motivated skills (things you love doing) that
have benefitted your companies/employers?
Again, think about what those around you say
about you. How do they introduce you to others?
Here are some possible areas of strength:
Identifying problems, seeing the details, leading,
delegating, performing analysis, fact finding, crunching
numbers, anticipating risk, motivating, men-
toring, innovating, managing conflict, writ-
ing, listening, communicating.
• 4. What differentiates you from your
competition for your next job? What do
you have to offer that no one else does?
A client of mine, who is the CEO of a
thriving home decor manufacturer and dis-
tributor, identified a sense of humor as his
top personal brand attribute. He relied on
his engaging sense of humor to unify teams,
make things happen, and calm fiery situ-
ations. He knew this trait was a critical part
of his value proposition.
Here s how he and I brought it all together
in his personal brand statement:
"A focused and determined business
leader, I offer the entrepreneurial stamina
and wisdom to drive bottom line growth
and lucrative business, inspire employees
to peak performance, and cultivate prof-
itable business relationships built on
respect, loyalty, and trust. My easy-going
sense of humor has been a defining man-
agement strategy to bring out the best
in everyone, instill pride, and mobilize
them to make their company the best in
Your personal brand statement should
become part of your online and offline career
marketing communications -- at the top of
your resume or career bio and in your online
profiles. And don t forget to brand-charge
your email signature by including an abbre-
viated version as a tagline.
Spend some time uncovering your per-
sonal brand. Have the courage to embrace
the things that make you unique. What dif-
ferentiates you from your peers is exactly
the message that will hit home with the
decision makers you re trying to influence.
