Manifesto: I Am Not a Brand

Manifesto: I Am Not a Brand | Conceiving Of And Responding To New Possibilities... | Scoop.it
I am not saying that it is a bad or dishonest thing to try to sell your work. It is not. What I am saying is that I am tired of the rush to commodify everything, to turn everything into products, including people. I don’t want a brand, because a brand limits me. A brand says I will churn out the same thing over and over.
Jerry Buchko's insight:

Yes. :)  Nice perspective piece explores the notion and lived experience of personal brands.

Although collaboration – the extraordinary business of having to work with other people – is one of the major facts of modern life, it remains strangely unstudied and undiscussed as a formal topic. Our culture does not typically invite us to pay close and admiring attention to successful collabo

Jerry Buchko's insight:

Very interesting report from the RSA.  In addition to the useful information about these common behavioral hurdles they cite, I think that the authors present a perspective that converges with the one offered by the CFPB financial well-being report <http://goo.gl/kat5Ha>* from earlier this year on the topic of *financial education and its role in developing financial capability. And in this area, they similarly offered perspective about where there would be important opportunities for future research, including research that would study the efficacy of different pedagogical approaches to developing financial capability.
