Jesse James, not the tatooed one, a comic book shop owner in my home town, told me once that every person must have three things that he will always be true to in order to lead a happy, successful life and career. It’s a personal brand summed up in three ideas. Think of it like your mission statement. Here’s mine:

  1. Honor: If I say I will do something, it’s already done.
  2. Dedication: I dedicate myself to what I do. 100%
  3. Fun: I endeavor to find the fun in everything. If I have to put it there, I will.

Jesse told me some other ideas people have chosen to build their lives around: Family, Innovation, God, Learning, Knowledge… you name it. What are your three?

Who Am I?

I am a Digital Native who is trying to puzzle out what exactly that means. I share my thoughts on social media, digital business models, and PR here on this blog.

I am currently getting my Masters in Digital Marketing from Hult International Business School, having gotten my B.S. in Marketing from Arizona State University. Everything is on track and I am making headway towards my dream: World Domination... or being a productive, helpful citizen and marketer. Whichever comes first.

Don't hesitate to get in touch. I Tweet daily at @KateDavids and also have a science fiction and fantasy blog ( and Twitter (@Masked_Geek).
