Hello My Name Is..........

Have you ever heard of Scott Ginsberg?  He is the author of "The Nametag Principle."  For over 4000 days, Scott has worn a "Hello My Name Is Scott" name badge.  It started in college when he attended an event that required a name badge.  After the event, he kept the name badge on and has worn it every day since.  What is so interesting is how many people have approached him over the years, the new friends, the contacts and yes, the weird looks, but most importantly, it gave people the opportunity to say "hello.”  Scott says you don't need to wear a name badge to get noticed.  He says be receptive like you are wearing a name tag; when people see you as approachable, all sorts of opportunities open up.  He says decide what you makes you unique and leverage it.  Lastly, have confidence in your identity; find some way to tell the world who you are.
