How to Turn Your Reputation into a Personal Brand

On Monday a video of a United Airlines passenger, being ripped from an airplane, physically accosted and bloodied because he refused to leave a seat he paid for, went viral. My first thought as I watched it was, “what country is this in?” Only to realize that something so barbaric happened here in the states. I wish I could say I was surprised, but as a very frequent flier, I can tell you it was only a matter of time before things went from bad to worse. The incident brings to light so many issues: commercial air travel is at a boiling point of dysfunction, civility is all but dead in our society, and sadly, a company will do what they are (I guess?) technically allowed to do, despite the fact that it is inherently wrong.

Taped to my computer is the now famous quote from Brene Brown, based on the “Man in the Arena” speech given by Theodore Roosevelt in 1910, “If you’re not in the arena getting your butt kicked too, I’m not interested in your feedback.” It’s become my motto and a guideline for how I filter through what feels like never ending and sometimes harsh thoughts from people who don’t know me or my intentions and have never put themselves out there in any way, shape, or form.
