Oscar Wilde* once said, “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Although he lived long before our digital age, there may be no better argument for taking steps to define, design, and promote your personal brand.
In our hyper-connected world where you are easily (and maybe even often) Googled and social media profiles and posts are your calling cards, it’s important that you decide how you want to be portrayed. Otherwise, you leave all of that important work to someone else — and in doing so, fork over control of not just your personal brand, but also potentially your professional opportunities.
