My blogging journey began as something I created for a "personal branding," project in one of my college classes. I did a great deal for this project, but the meat and potatoes of it was my website and the mission statement I wrote for myself / my brand (The Heil Style). When I initially created my mission statement, however, I was new to the "blogosphere," and had yet to land on solid ground and find my footing. Because of this, I wrote a generic statement that conveyed the obvious: my interest in sharing intriguing content to build an audience. Duh, that's why so many of us create websites, write blogs and channel + share ourselves through various digital mediums, right?
I began to realize the statement I originally thought was so groundbreaking didn't actually convey my authentic self and what I stand for. I outgrew it, plain and simple, so I decided I needed to write something I wouldn't outgrow again. When I wrote it the first time, I was 19 and now I'm going on 22. I know what you're thinking- "Two years isn't much of a time frame." Let me stop you there, because two years ago I had minimal professional experience and didn't understand how truly terrible block eyebrows looked- seriously, awful. I've outgrown old opinions, gained valuable professional experience and gotten to know myself as a person to an extent I didn't know possible at 19.
I decided it was time to revisit, revise and revamp the message that best informs you of who I am and what I stand for.
