CUPERTINO, CA – October 24, 2011
Personal branding is not a new concept. People have always wished to stand apart from the crowd. But today, when each of us has a way to communicate our unique value to millions of people at once, personal branding has taken on a life of its own. And because your words and actions can now transmit so quickly and easily across the planet, it is vital that you think through your personal brand very carefully before you set the ball in motion. You need to understand what you mean, what the market thinks you mean, and where the gaps may lie.
If you are new to the idea of personal branding, have toyed with the idea of creating a personal brand, or simply wish to take your career to the next level, #MyBrand tweet is your first step toward differentiating yourself in a very crowded environment.
With topics ranging from defining the idea of personal branding and the mechanics of building yours, to getting your brand out there and keeping it alive, Laura Lowell draws on her years of experience in building some of the world’s biggest brands. Her direct and actionable wisdom allows for immediate implementation. For example, she advises, "Stand alone and you will stand out; but stand fast because it can be lonely," and "#MyBrand is about who you are--your experience, expertise, and passion--not what you do." This witty, insightful book offers a practical approach to building your personal brand--140 characters at a time.
