As women entrepreneurs today, one of our most important assignments is to learn to be comfortable in becoming the lead marketer of the brand called “YOU”. Your personal brand is all about combining your unique gifts, skill sets, strengths and personality traits and packaging them into a solid brand.
You are unique and there isn’t any other person in business, be they in the same market you are in or a different market, that is exactly like you.
We are living in a new age of “Celebrity” marketing where individualism is being celebrated putting us in position to be our own news reporter. In 2006 TIME magazine named “You” as the person of the year and printed 6,965,000 copies of their magazine with a reflective mirror on the cover. Their idea was that when the reader picked up the magazine and looked at the cover they would see a reflection of themselves.
It only makes sense to have a brand built around “YOU”. After all, who else can market you better than you?
