At Tea’s suggestion, I did make time to ask my site members, via a FB Group post, what three words they might use to describe me or what I do online via SoWrite and the Group.
I was prepared for at least some negative feedback here, but the results were embarrassingly complimentary. Because I don’t yet know what to properly do with this information (haven’t listened to the Brunch & Learn yet, sorry), I will simply post those results and request your feedback/advice on how to move forward from here. Thanks!
- Smart, dedicated, innovative.
- intelligent, strong, caring
- writer, leader, initiator
- intelligent, helpful, innovative, friend
- true, loyal, helpfu
- And not around NEAR enough! 😀
- Robin nailed it. Smart, dedicated, innovative. But if you need a bigger selection, I’ll add “kind” to the mix.
- Sincere, motivated, inspiring…. It is an honor to know you
- Smart, quirky, genuine
- loyal, dedicated, skilled, creative, –and a true friend All of the above, even the quirky “:D
- thoughtful, helpful, friendly!
- I totally mean the quirky as a compliment. I adore quirky
- Jim, I think you can rest easy. You’re well loved. :-
- Kind, writer, fun
- intelligent, funny, approachable
- multi-tasker, mediator, dedicated and (occasionally) humble- just like Wilbur the pig.
- friendly (even if you’re shy), intelligent, nice
- Jim, I’ve only just met you so I can’t offer three, but I can definitely say you are caring, and you go the extra mile to help others
- LOL Carol. Jim, I think you are more critical of yourself than you probably should be and that is why you expected it from us. I don’t just shy away from asking questions like these, I am frozen in fear about them. I applaud your bravery.
- So Very Talented!! (posted by my wife)
- I’d say: Organized, motivating, and encouraging
- Only complaint: Too few of you, Jim…
- Helpful, humourous, and giving. You can open your eyes now, Jimmy-boy! 😀
- Helpful, thoughtful, encouragin
- Oh Jim. Humble is one of the words I would use to describe you. Also genuine and helpful
This is a LOT of feedback to work with. What next?

First: organize these into buckets. Find the synonyms and group them together. Which three buckets emerge most often? Those will be closest to how you and your brand are perceived.
Second: what three words do YOU want to be known for? Are these a match with those shared with you by your tribe? If so, good! If not, there may be some adjusting to do.
Third: What kind of tagline could you write for yourself? For this piece, I recommend you watch the videos. 😉

OK, great, thanks Tea!
That’s helpful advice and easy to follow. I will absolutely watch the videos next.
