What is Personal Branding?

Personal Branding is your unique or exclusive promise of worth to a potential employer or to your target audience strongly expressed.

Where did it come from?

Personal Branding came about in the mid-90's from the concept that as companies have used branding successfully to attract their target audience, so successful professionals can do the same. Global thought leaders such as Tom Peters (who coined the phrase), Peter Montoya, William Arruda, David McNally and Karl Speak, have popularized the concept.

Who needs personal branding?

In today's world, everyone. From successful military personnel, business owners, athletes, professionals, and executives need a personal brand.

Definitely! Counseling, mentoring and/or coaching is available via social media, telephone, email and video chat.
