Once upon a time a friend of mine
Asked me several times :
What does it feel to fall in love?
What does it feel to fall alive?
I spent some time to think of it.
I spent some time to structure it.
I ended up with one lonely statement.
Brother you just have to fake your love!
Faking Love makes you feel in Love.
Faking Love helps to fall in Love.
Finally you’ll end up to be loved,
You sometimes don’t know how to love,
You’re just faking it until your final breath.
So my dear friend listen to my advice,
Continue to fake this love.

I wanted to share with you one of my professional experiences as a helicopter pilot.
It was about twelve years ago in French Guiana. We used to regularly perform medevac flights during night hours since military personnel were the only ones allowed to perform such flights. Civilian helicopters were not authorized to do night flights back in this time.
My memory probably has some gaps now. I might be mixing together some elements of many different missions from that period of time. But that is not what matters… it’s the memorable elements and feelings that are true.

Let’s talk about personal branding.
Personal branding is a trend. We read a lot about developing a personal brand and sometimes the plethora of information and advice on the topic seems a bit generic and difficult to translate into actual practice.

You need to work on your elevator pitch. –
Highlight what makes you different from the crowd. Yes, you’re right. I’m gonna try.
But, you know what? It’s not that easy to give an elevator pitch when what you do best is to listen.
