Your brand is what people say about you when you're not in the room
Regardless of age, regardless of position, regardless of the business we happen to be in, all of us need to understand the importance of branding. We are CEOs of our own companies: Me, Inc. To be in business today, our most important job is to be head marketer for the brand called You.
Branding is the art of becoming knowable, likable and trustable.

Products are made in the factory, but brands are created in the mind.
A great brand is a story that never stops unfolding.
Authentic brands don't emerge from marketing cubicles or advertising agencies. They emanate from everything the company does.
Branding is nothing but knowing who you are and what you do that makes you stand out from everyone else, then communicating that through your marketing efforts. Branding is discovering your uniqueness and learning to exploit it.
Branding is not about what something says or what it means, but how it makes us feel.
Branding is simply a more efficient way to sell things.
