Network 4 Net Worth: You Are The Brand

I’ve recently joined a Linkedin group started by my younger brother, called Network 4 Net-Worth. BTW – this group has a great name!

Using social media properly can help you achieve success.

In a few weeks, I’ll be speaking to the group about the importance of personal branding, and using the internet and social media to help achieve one’s professional objectives.

I’m putting together a wicked presentation, and I’m excited.

I’m using my own personal branding journey as the case study, and bringing along my man Sergio, founder of WeHarlem, to provide another case study of professional branding on a different level.

I’m going to post it up here when it’s done, and walk you through my presentation.

Hopefully, you’ll find it as elucidating as (I hope) it will be for the group members and attendees.

I’m opening up here people! Pay attention!

Anyway, I’m also promoting it, because I’m going to be shooting a documentary film I’m producing, so I am really looking for support.

The event is Thursday, February 10, 2011, at The Hill, 416 3rd Avenue, at East 29th Street. It starts at 7:00 and my presentation begins promptly at 8:00 pm.

A word to the wise: fashionably late=you missed it.

If you can’t make it, please be sure to follow me @stephenchukumba or friend me on Facebook, as I’ll also be posting the presentation there as well.

My Wife is Dope: Redux

Man Pouring Tea

So earlier this year, I posted up about how fly my wife is.

She had just completed this piece for Nneka, and I was totally blown away by the piece.

Well, my praise is obviously self-serving (I’ve got to live with the wench).

But she was recently selected to be a part of a group show that opens in Harlem next month.

Two of her pieces, Man Pouring Tea and Sudan, were selected to be a part of the Sauti Yetu Art exhibition, which opens October 23rd at the Casa Frela Gallery.

Sudan

What’s also kinda cool, is that they asked if she would allow them to use Man Pouring Tea on the promotional materials for the show.

We were so excited that we were jumping up and down like little kids when she got the news.

And by ‘we’ I literally mean the entire family – even little Fuji who can’t stand, much less jump, was rocking his lil’ booty up in the air.

The show is actually a traveling exhibition, which will be housed at Case Frela for a month, before traveling to the other scheduled galleries.

I’m asking folks to mark their calendars now, so that you can see Chanel’s work up close and personal.

The pictures don’t do them justice.

Don’t take my word for it (because I’m obviously biased).

Come through Casa Frela on October 23rd (or before the pieces move to their next destination on November 30th) and see for yourself.

Trust me, you’ll be glad you did.

And if (for some ungodly reason) you can’t make it, worry not.

We’re planning on running a promotion with We Harlem (shout out to Sergio and Lorraine), where you can get an exclusive ChanelArt wallpaper to your mobile phone or PC.

So stay tuned for more details!
