Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
If you are not a brand, you are a commodity.
Brand is just a perception, and perception will match reality over time. Sometimes it will be ahead, other times it will be behind. But brand is simply a collective impression some have about a product.
You too are a brand. Whether you know it or not. Whether you like it or not.
Your brand is what people say about you when you're not in the room
A brand for a company is like a reputation for a person. You earn reputation by trying to do hard things well.
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.
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.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Your personal brand is a promise to your clients... a promise of quality, consistency, competency, and reliability.
To find yourself, think for yourself.
Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.
Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.
People will never forget how you made them feel.
Truth is a point of view, but authenticity can't be faked.
Your premium brand had better be delivering something special, or it's not going to get the business.
A great brand is a story that's never completely told.
You now have to decide what 'image' you want for your brand. Image means personality. Products, like people, have personalities, and they can make or break them in the market place.
Personal branding is about managing your name - even if you don't own a business - in a world of misinformation, disinformation, and semi-permanent Google records. Going on a date? Chances are that your "blind" date has Googled your name. Going to a job interview? Ditto.
If people like you they'll listen to you, but if they trust you they'll do business with you.
Believe you can and you're halfway there.
A great brand is a story that’s never completely told. A brand is a metaphorical story that connects with something very deep – a fundamental appreciation of mythology. Stories create the emotional context people need to locate themselves in a larger experience.
The keys to brand success are self-definition, transparency, authenticity and accountability.
A great brand is a story that never stops unfolding.
If I lost control of the business I'd lose myself - or at least the ability to be myself. Owning myself is a way to be myself.
