Your Personal Brand Identity Is Your Name
We all are given a name at birth, Right? Now don’t laugh, Seriously how many of us really give much thought to this?
Can you remember the first time you learned your name or how about the first time you wrote it?
Did you ever think this would be your brand identity for life?
I attended a graduation a few years ago and I was pretty impressed with one of the speakers and thought I would share her story with you here today.
She started talking about how in kindergarten we are taught how to write our name.
You first learn how to hold that pencil and draw out the letters from the alphabet.
Your teacher then helps you put those letters together to form your name, when you go home, your parents, siblings and perhaps even your grandparents all partake in this first big event.
You practice and practice writing your name until you get it just right.
Your Personal Brand Identity Is Your Reputation
This is the beginning of building your brand identity, your signature, your reputation!
Little did you know at this time in your life that something so important was taking place.
How many times do you think you wrote your name on the top of your papers while you were in school?
Every paper had your signature right at the top! I bet you can’t even come close to the number of times you have done this over the years.
Then you graduate and you sign that diploma with your signature.
Your Personal Brand Identity This Is The Beginning Of Your Adult Life
I bet many of us at this point didn’t really even think about our name being our brand identity or how important that this is going to be for us in the future.
When I got married I was very confused about what to do.
Do I keep my maiden name, my husbands name or use both?
Well I did make the decision to take on my husband’s last name.
I guess this is a choice all of us girls come across when we get married. It was a tough one for me! My new brand identity began my new name, my brand and my signature.

I like to Google myself regularly to see if there is anything off-brand so to say, yet another way to check out my brand identity.
Make sure every thing that you write is something you’d be proud to have associated with your brand, both today and years down the road.
How do you think people see you?
