I stumbled upon this old interview with rapper and mogul Jay-Z while reading an article on BrandMakerNews.com. At one point in the interview, Tavis Smiley asked Jay-Z, “When did you have this epiphany that you can do more?” It made me think. Am I doing everything I can to build my personal brand? More importantly, am I doing everything I can to grow as a woman and a person? At one point during the interview, Jay-Z makes it clear that he knew absolutely nothing about what he was doing but he still kept going until he got it right. One thing that was reiterated to me was that persistence matters. I know that I recently posted about the importance of persistence but the theme keeps recurring.
Do you have any other takeaways from this interview? Can you be doing more to grow as a person and as a brand?
