I went to Seattle today to give a full day workshop on “The Unbreakable Rules of Personal Branding”, hosted by Eventsbella.

This is the second year in a row I’ve come up to Seattle to present for Eventsbella. Last April I came up and did a workshop on “The Unbreakable Rules of Marketing” which this workshop was based off, it was just focused on the individual as opposed to general marketing for companies, organizations and individuals.

The trip up was interesting. I went up Jessica, a friend of mine, and we had to leave Portland by 4:30am to make it up there in time. She drove the whole way up while I rechecked my slides and exercises in the car to make sure I was ultra-prepared to give everyone the best personal branding workshop ever. We had fun. By 7:00am, we were already passing the Tacoma Dome and recorded a video of us singing one of the great songs from the ’70s, “Love Will Keep Us Together” by Captain & Tennille.

The workshop was fantastic. It was held at the Bellevue Golf Course, so we had a spectacular view the entire day. The participants were a group of phenomenal people, all whom of which are extremely intelligent and talented in their own fields. We got to know each other very well during the workshop as we went through some exercises to help each one of us explore the unique qualities that make up our own personal brand.

After the workshop was over, Jessica and I headed back to Portland and made it back before 11:00pm blasting music and drinking cold water, all the way down.
