Brand of Me

personal-brandingWe all know that branding is critical in to large corporations and consumer goods.  Traditional brands ask themselves, “What is it that my product or service does that makes it different?” Did you know it is essential to your own success? Now ask yourself, “What makes me different?”

I decided it was time to brand myself.  I started by identifying the qualities or characteristics that make me distinctive from my colleagues. What would my colleagues or my customers say is your greatest strength or personal trait? So I asked, researched, tested, and evaluated my results and this is where it lead me.
