Creating a personal brand isn’t so difficult. The main component is of course what you create and how you treat the people you interact with. How you define yourself, how you recover from set backs, and how you find ways to move forward in your career and to allow change to happen can only help you.

The Future of Corporate Branding is Personal

The Future of Corporate Branding is Personal | Brand Me! | Scoop.it
2013 has been an eventful year for some of the big brands, namely the impact of senior execs and their personal brands on the corporate brand. Careers have toppled, share prices have fallen and reputations shaken not stirred.
ValStilwell's insight:

Because of the reach of social media and curious minds, employees can no longer hide behind the apron of the corporation /business / organization.  Managing your personal brand is now relevant from home to work to - just about anywhere one goes.  This new paradygm shift with the ability to publicly delve into who we are as a person and how it affects us professionally is not to be overlooked nor taken for granted.
