“Millennials are not lazy, entitled losers and we actually have a lot to say,” – Erin Bury. Officially my favourite quote from one of my podcast guests!
The big reason I wanted to chat with Erin was because she is such a good example of where hustle can take you. She’s gotten to where she is in her career because she worked hard, tried new things and took some major risks.
For instance, when I asked her how she got to be one of Marketing Magazine’s 30 Under 30, she said she nominated herself. I bet most people wouldn’t have even thought of doing that, and while those people are waiting for someone to just give it to them, Erin went out and got it for herself. You go girl!
I also love how she advocates for everyone to work on their personal brand. As I mentioned, for my day job, part of it entails teaching professionals how to craft their personal brand to win new business.
But if you’re not looking for clients, you could still find a new job or a new gig just by putting some time and effort into your social profiles and pitching yourself as an expert to the media. I reinvented my personal brand less than a year ago, and I’m telling you it has rocked my world big time — in a good way.
All I know is I can’t wait to see what Erin’s accomplished when she gets listed for 40 Under 40!
