If you are not a brand, you are a commodity.
A brand is the set of expectations, memories, stores and relationships that, taken together, account for a consumer's decision to choose one product or service over another.
A brand for a company is like a reputation for a person. You earn reputation by trying to do hard things well.
To find yourself, think for yourself.
