FAQ


What is your Superpower? Do you make people money, save people money, or create an experience for people? One of the biggest misconception about personal branding is people often confuse branding with marketing and generally don’t believe the impact of a solid personal! Branding is not a logo, promotional material, branding in itself is defined as a kind, grade, or to be recognized by a stamp, trademark, logo or tagline. It is to indelibly impress, a seal. Since the beginning of time, branding has played an essential role in the evolution of our society. Whether it was a mark to signify a tribe or owner on cattle, the seal of royalty on an official document, or the name of a celebrity to add validity, branding has moved from a primitive identifier to a well-recognized form of nonverbal, vital communication. Branding transcends across language, professional, geographic, and socialeconomic barriers. Something as simple as a symbol, sign or logo can bridge communication between a producer and consumer, open doors, create revenue and conversely turn consumers away. It is important to understand that a logo is not a brand. The logo represents the brand. The logo is symbolic of what is felt or thought about the brand. When you see the logo of your favorite brands, you think of your experience or feeling about that brand. As an employee or an entrepreneur, you DO have a personal brand. Building a personal brand is creating an experience or expectation that you want others to have or feel when he or she interacts with you, hear your name, or see your work!
