What Is Personal Branding?
Well let’s see we are all 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 personal brand for life?
Think way back to kindergarten, can you remember how your were taught how to write your name?
Let me help you here..
The first thing you learned was how to hold that pencil and draw out the letters from the alphabet.
Your teacher then helped you put those letters together to form your name, when you went 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.
Personal Branding For Your Reputation
This is the beginning of building your personal brand, 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.

I bet many of us at this point didn’t really even think about our name being our personal brand 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.

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 personal brand began my new name, my brand and my signature.
