It is time for me to re-launch my blog. I launched this blog a year and a half ago, and since then have a completely different outlook on life that I want to share with the world.
My blog before was essentially about one topic; personal branding.
Personal Branding is a great topic. So much of the world depends on the way others perceive you. A lot of it is superficial, but a lot is also extremely deep and important. The Salamon Rules set out to discuss the laws that were timeless; mass communication, creation, innovation, accessibility, consistency, and credibility. In fact, I owe a lot of my own success to personal branding. By working on my communication to the world, I recieved two promotions within a 9 month time frame, and it all started after I launched my blog on Personal Branding.
However, since then, I’ve had other experiences I want to share with the world. I want to share my experiences with growing up on the border with Mexico, about being a Jewish American, about business, about how I gained 40lbs after college and my quest to lose it. By re-launching my blog, I want to essentially be more authentic with who I am, top to bottom. The general topics I want to explore are business, health, fitness, politics, science, arts, and philanthropy. This is who I am. While personal branding highlighted one aspect of my personality and skill, I am eager to learn more about the other dimensions of myself. Writing about Personal Branding helped me improve the way I branded myself, so what happens when I start to explore other aspects of life? What happens when I give myself the space to write about anything?
I am very much looking forward to the new concept and hope you’ll enjoy the ride as much as I will. I have many to thank for the success I’ve had since launching my blog, but I want to highlight a few who were particularly influential.
Brant Barton, my new boss and co-founder of Bazaarvoice, who has taught me a lot about self-development and being brutally honest.
Jacob Salamon, my brother and closest friend who has pushed me time and time again.
Omar Jafri, my ex-college roommate who has always pushed me politically.
Cassie, my beautiful and ever patient girlfriend.
My Mother & Grandmother who have always been there for me no matter what.
