Your personal brand is the way you show up to the world. A personal brand is how you are perceived in your environment: how your colleagues, family, your community, and your market sees you.

Recognizing the attributes that are unique and specific to you is part of building your personal brand. Everything you do daily contributes to building your personal brand and how people perceive you. It could be the way you dress, how you talk, who your friends are, and what you share on social media.

What Are the Benefits of Personal Branding?

Personal branding is not an option. Today, it is something that you must do. You need to control how the world sees you and how you stand out from the crowd. Once you do, the benefits of having a clear personal brand may include:

  • Mastering and developing a personal brand opens opportunities and unlock doors for you.
  • Having a personal brand helps you thrive in your career by demonstrating that you are exceptional in your field.
  • If you are in consultancy or an independent professional, you can create your own company by leveraging your brand.
  • People buy from people they like, not from faceless companies.

When and How To Start Building Your Personal Brand?

  • Start building your personal brand NOW! The sooner you start, the better.
  • You need to plan thoroughly by asking yourself the following questions to form a clear vision that aligns with your personal branding:
    • What do you enjoy doing?
    • What are you good at?
    • Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
  • Next, you need to ask yourself how your personal branding will make money for you:
    • Can you make a living from your personal brand?
    • How can it make money for you? (Through public speaking, starting a podcast or a YouTube channel?)
    • Can you make a living out of something you like to do?

What Your Personal Branding Should Communicate:

Because a personal brand is a strong statement representing who you are, it should be respected. To achieve that, always keep these things in mind:

  • Your personal brand should tell a story.
  • Your personal brand should be sincere.
  • Your brand should be about helping people with their problems.

Be open to the possibility that you might need to rebrand. For that, you need to be ready to fail.
