As many of you know, I’m a huge Phillies fan. Last week, the Phillies opened their season at home against the Atlanta Braves.
But, it wasn’t just another Opening Day.
It was the Phillies debut for perhaps their biggest free agent signing ever:
For you non-sports readers, his star power can be likened to Taylor Swift or Tony Robbins. Those are the best examples I could come up with. You get the idea.
What’s been amazing so far hasn’t just been Harper’s performance. But, rather, his willingness to assert himself with the Philadelphia fans.
It’s all part of the Bryce Harper brand. Yes, I said brand.
Players these days are more than the teams they play for. They are their own brands.
They share things on Twitter and Instagram. They have their own products. They create their own companies.
In many ways, they’re like subsidiaries of the teams they play for. The Phillies knew this and want to use Bryce to help lure more high-powered players to Philadelphia.
Why am I telling you all this?
Well, because whether you’re an entrepreneur, climbing the career ladder, or just a person living the best life they can (we all are), you are also a brand.
That’s right. We all have a personal brand.
And we’re responsible for showcasing that brand heroically — and to the best of our ability.
That’s why when Skillshare asked me to create a class on Personal Branding, I jumped at the chance! It showed that somebody took notice of the brands I created with Run The Money and, now, Hero Story.
Until April 7 at 11:59 PM Eastern, I’m giving the class I created, Heroic Branding: Be The Hero Of Your Personal Brand, away for free.

Go brand yourself,
“We see entrepreneurship as a state of mind – taking responsibility for your life in all its areas (including health, business, relationships, etc.) and constantly working on yourself to bring more value to the world and all beings.”
That’s how Journal Smarter founders Siliva and Michal describe their approach to entrepreneurship and giving back.
What’s incredible about these two is that they run Journal Smarter “while traveling the world slowly (few months in each place) and helping people build sustainable and thriving communities. We have been working with an organic farm/retreat space in rural Japan, retreat space/guest house in French Alps, and at the moment we are living and working with Astralship in Wales.“
And here I thought I was “winning at life” by juggling a family, full-time job, and side hustle. Nope.
Michal and Silvia do all this also while being in a relationship. So, that kind of puts to bed whether or not you can start a business with your significant other. If they can travel the world together and run a company, we don’t have any excuses!
As Silvia told me, “That’s right, we’re also a couple—and one of our biggest accomplishments is to run a business together while loving each other and using our relationship as a super-personal-development-booster.”
Their story is truly inspiring and I had a chance to interview them to learn more about the incredible things they’re doing. You can check out the full interview on HeroStory.org.
