Whether you’re just starting a new business or an experienced entrepreneur looking to increase your business results, it’s time to decide how you want to be known in your market—in a compelling and unforgettable way. You will do this by developing a personal brand.
Brands are not just for big corporations.
In fact, a personal brand will serve as an important key to your success. A personal brand will help clearly and consistently define, express, and communicate who you are, whom you serve, and why you have chosen to dedicate your life and work to serving your target market so that you can attract your most ideal clients and repel those who are less than ideal. Personal branding is far more than just what you do. It is you—uniquely you. It allows you to distinguish yourself and what is unique about who you are and what you do from everyone else.
This interview topic is based on Michael Port’s bestseller, Book Yourself Solid. Sherry Dutra, a certified Book Yourself Solid Trainer and Coach will discuss the key components of developing a personal brand and provide you with tips and exercises to help you create your own or enhance what you already have in place.
