Self branding is quite the trend, but if you're multi-passionate it can be tricky to find what to focus on & how to create a brand that really resonates with you & your new audience.
These are the same steps I took when shifting from a location specific Accounting business to a portable business teaching people how to build online businesses.
Hi, my name is Loralee Hutton, creator of the 14 Day Product Challenge. A challenge that's run twice per year, since early 2013. I'm an online portable business advisor, and absolutely adore testing out tools, plugins and gadgets that make working online easier. You can find me at LoraleeHutton.com where I blog about running a portable online business and share what I've learned through mini-courses, workshops and resource guides. From time to time, I run live challenges (like this one), bringing together other like-minded entrepreneurs to “get stuff done".You may have recently seen my very first book release… “Info Product Complete", which mirrors the process we'll be going through in this live challenge.

I've also put together a list of popular tools that other people are using to automate different processes in their business. You're certainly not going to use all of them, but it will give you some ideas and a starting point for finding the right tools for you. You can always reference the tools I'm currently using at http://loraleehutton.com/my-tools.
As soon as I've put something through it's testing phase I add it to the website list as soon as possible. Take your time! This isn't something you need to implement overnight. In fact, it's better if you don't. Keep asking yourself questions as you go through your work day to see where you can streamline, systematize & automate. Your business will continue to grow and you'll have more free time to enjoy life. To your success, Loralee Hutton
