• Learn How to Build a Powerful Personal Brand That Will Differentiate You and Allow You To Compete in the Global Marketplace.
  • Personal Branding Weekly – 22 April 2013

    I’m happy that Dan Schawbel, Publisher of this blog, was finally able to get back into his apartment in Boston.  I’m even more thrilled that he and his colleagues were not hurt during the tragic events in Boston. From Boston, where Dan is based, to Texas, where I am based, the tragedies were our focus last week. Our hearts and thoughts go out to those we lost last week, their families and the many injured.

    While it may seem like a strange time to think about Personal Branding, our personal brands are exuded in our daily interactions, activities, tragedies and triumphs. In fact, after much careful thought and consideration, on Wednesday those who participate in #brandchat (known as BRANDidos) discussed the topic of brands and disasters which certainly applies to all of us.  Here’s the recap.

    This week we also covered:

    This next week Michael asks when was the last time you checked your references; Heather covers how you are damaging your personal brand; Peter covers what we can learn from the cycling culture; Roger explores if creatives should do anything different on their resumes; Elinor focuses on results; Erik answers whether success is really just about showing up; and Richard even broaches knowing what we want to be when we grow up.

    Please make sure to comment. We want to get to know you!
