When I first heard about Motherhood Penalty, I was shocked beyond imagination! All my life I have seen moms not only working full time but kicking ass while doing it.

Why do some people just light up the room the moment they enter into one? Why do some people become influential or why some people’s presence is so pleasing? The answer is simple- they are true to their brand!

Good deeds cost nobody –
It’s simple, isn’t it? If you are offered service or a piece of advice with the exchange of money, you appreciate it, take the advice, and move ahead, but if you get something extra out of compassion, empathy, and pure intentions, you remember those people you have gratitude towards and you are always ready to help them. Now just reverse the equation and you have your answer!
Be consistent –
It may be your social media presence or your individualistic style of conducting a meeting, if you’re consistent then it automatically becomes your identity. But do research and think through about what are the things you want to be known for. That choice has to be well thought through.
Be resourceful and expert in your domain –
People think of you as a brand when they know you’re an expert in some things. It can be financial advice or start-up business or any other thing. Do deep research about it and start sharing opinion pieces. Make it a part of your identity and automatically your brand is associated with it.
Reinvent and break the barriers –
Want to stand out and get associated with something you’re passionate about? Well, start talking about it openly. You’re a reflection of your thoughts and opinions, they might be unique and bold but they become a part of your identity, so never shy away from speaking your mind. So many people have built their identities while talking and acting about things that bothered them and they came and changed the scenario.
