Personal Branding Strategist Faith James on Your Book Your Brand Your Business

I interviewed Personal Branding Strategist Faith James on last night’s episode of Your Book Your Brand Your Business. Faith had been a previous guest on Writestream Radio Network and it was my pleasure to bring her expertise and enthusiasm to a new audience on W4CY Radio.

What is branding? How can writing a book help you expand your brand and influence? How does branding differ from marketing?

Faith answered these questions and many more, plus offered a special gift for live and archived listeners. If you missed the episode, click to listen.

Writestream Tuesday welcomes A Taste of Dawn

Dawn-Wine-ATOD

I am thrilled to announce that my next guest on the show will be the amazing Dawn Garcia, Founder | Editor of  A Taste of Dawn:

Dawn has been writing for 20 years, however she began Food Writing in 2010 after being dared – yes, dared – to write a Review for a Local Magazine. Thus began her “Story” of Dining Out. With a background in Film, Creative Writing, and Media, Dawn’s passion always comes down to words. She believes the power of words and story can transcend simplicity and create extraordinary. Having dined all around the world ignited something within: 4 Continents and 17 Countries later, every plate has a history and more importantly – a voice. Dawn’s approach to dining out is not simply to critique the food. She believes that the Entire Dining Experience should be unforgettable from decor and ambiance to food and service.

With a deep love of Art, Photography, Food, Wine, Hotels, and Travel, “ATOD Magazine: A Taste of Dawn” was created to help readers find a unique (and honest) guide to Restaurants, Visionaries, Artists, Hotels, Chefs, and Events around the globe:

“My pen is my voice. The keyboard my outlet. I have been writing since I picked up my first pencil. Words are my refuge. I can be anyone I want, I can speak without restriction, I can be bold. I have two 13-gallon bins filled with random things I’ve written since I was 12. I write about the things I am passionate about. The world, eating, breathing, art, photography, film, injustice. Writing is my oxygen. It nurtures my soul. As to how my journey began with ATOD, well – dining out has always been a phenomena to me. It’s extraordinary!

Eating out when we were kids was an absolute TREAT! We would get so excited if we knew we were going to a restaurant. Something about knowing we could order whatever we wanted seemed like Christmas come early. As we get older, ‘Eating Out’ takes on an entirely different meaning. Food becomes our escape, a memory made or shared with friends and people we love, it becomes the catalyst in an important business meeting, or even the excuse we need to have a little abandon. However I believe there is still a kid within us all. The little voice that sees a menu and secretly gets excited that the possibilities are endless and our saving grace is, we actually know what’s good. Eating out is simply life’s way of presenting us with yet another reason to engage our senses.

I suppose it was a natural evolution that I began writing about art in every form. It just seemed inevitable.”
