Being Authentically You IS Your Brand: Let Go of the Ideal You and Just Be You! (Guest: Joy Donnell)

Being Authentically You IS Your Brand: Let Go of the Ideal You and Just Be You! (Guest: Joy Donnell)

Joy Donnell is producer, an international speaker, author and activist who shares insight about branding, digital media and public image.

As a filmmaker you are always told to be aware of your brand, know your niche, be careful what you say and do, and so on. This week's guest Joy Donnell blows that all up. Host Jenn Page and Joy discuss how being authentically yourself IS your brand. They dive into how to use your humanity to build your personal brand, how to release yourself from the social media hamster wheel, how being authentically you finds your niche audience, and how to lean into the joy even in dark times. Instead of thinking what do I want to get this minute shift your thinking to what do I want to leave in the world.

Intuitive Conversation: Independence. Own your own life. Become independent of what you think you are supposed to do or caring what people think about you.

More on Joy:

Joy Donnell is a producer, cultural strategist, author and activist dedicated to creating media that builds cultural legacy. She believes in owning your power and for Joy, power is owning your voice, image, narrative,  influence and intentions. Joy’s work actively combines publicity, content strategy and media to build legacy and expand awareness. Her storytelling expertise touches all of her work as she brings that insight to  content strategy and content creation. When she isn’t behind the camera creating editorials and fashion films as a producer, she steps in front of the camera as a model and spokesperson. Joy is Chief Visionary of SUPERJOY Media and co-founder of luxury lifestyle platform, Vanichi. In 2018, she established the Center for Intersectional Media and Entertainment [CIME] alongside Munika Lay and Dr. Nicole Haggard.  As an international speaker, Joy shares her insight about branding, digital media and public image. Joy has guest lectured at UCLA’s School of Film, Television and Digital Media on that very subject matter and speaks globally about women in media, entrepreneurship and gender parity. Her new book, Beyond Brand, focuses on using media to build cultural legacy.  Twitter and Instagram @doitinpublic.
