Figuring Out What Your "Personal DNA" is


“You have to understand your own personal DNA. Don’t do things because I do them or Steve Jobs or Mark Cuban tried it.” You need to know your personal brand and stay true to it.” - Gary Vee

One of my fave follows is Gary Vee for focus, hustle and perspective. He’s so on point with this “personal DNA.” I believe in this so much. I remember watching his vlogcast and he said that he doesn’t get down on himself for not knowing how to do something or not being the best at it because he understands his strengths and weaknesses. There are things he will never be able to do no matter how hard he tries, but what is is great at he doubles down on that. I knew early on I would never be a doctor, nurse, lawyer, or work a 9-5 because that is not in my personal DNA. I just knew I always wanted to LOVE what I do and that is roc a mic and and be able to make in impact in my community so radio was a no-brainer for me. But maybe you don’t know what your personal DNA is yet and that’s okay too! You DO have time to figure it out at ANY AGE! Stop telling yourself it’s “too late.” It’s a LIE! And that comes back to “personal DNA.” Don’t focus on what you CAN’T do. Double down on your STRENGTHS and what you’re passionate about and that is a message I will hit play and repeat on EVERY DAY! (Oh and btw, I don’t have it all figured out. I’m not perfect, but I know I’m happy doing what I love and that’s how I know I’m doing something right.)
