Amber Wanner, Founder of CandiDate, shares how she responded after receiving a condescending message on LinkedIn.

In today’s world people are more connected than ever through the internet and social media. While it can be a great way to meet people that you wouldn’t otherwise meet, it also opens individuals up to harassment that they may not have experienced if they were meeting people face to face. A 2014 report from Pew Research Center states that 73% of internet users have witnessed online harassment. They define harassment as “being called offensive names, efforts to purposefully embarrass someone, being harassed for a sustained period of time, being physically threatened, being sexually harassed, or being stalked.” This study looked at harassment that could be seen publicly, but if people are willing to say those things online where everyone can see them, what is happening in private messages that we can’t see?

How To Know When You've Found Your Tribe

How To Know When You've Found Your Tribe

Go to the places where people wish you well. It sounds so simple, doesn’t it?

And yet I know I have gone places where people didn’t wish me well. I know I have been guilty of rising to the challenge to compete, to be “the best”. Nobody’s perfect. (said by a perfectionist) If you've ever had friends argue with you that your dreams are too big, had a significant other call your business a "fun hobby" right before telling you to "go get a real job", or had a family member tell you that you are all over the place and tease you about "what groundbreaking idea you're going to come up with this week" then you know what I am talking about.

What is Personal Branding?

What is Personal Branding?

Personal branding is based on the principle of how other people experience who you are and what you represent through their relationship with you, whether it is personal, professional, or on social media. Now that I have laid it out there like that, I want you to ask yourself this:

Are people picking up what you're throwing down?

What is my niche?

What is my niche?

As seen on FanDate October 23rd.

When you are choosing a niche it can be tough to decide what you want it to be. So many of us are good at so many different things and if you don't like the things you are already good at, then you can always reinvent yourself. If you fall into the latter category then you and I are very similar. It can be very scary to start over and pave a new path. I am a nurse and my background is in healthcare. I have never studied business in college and I do not have an MBA, but what I do have is experience. I have been standing right where you are now wondering which way to go. Unfortunately, I can't tell you the answer to that but I can give you some tools that have helped me get to this point.
