In the age of more & more content (whether human- or AI-created), your personal brand matters more than ever.
Potential clients and event organizers can easily find lots of experts in what you do.
What you want them to realize is what sets you apart and why they should pick you.
That’s where your personal brand and thought leadership come in.
I know you want to have a positive impact on the world and you may feel like cultivating a personal brand is unnecessary or self-indulgent or you just don’t have time for it.
But, here’s the thing: you have a personal brand, everyone does.
It’s how other people would describe you; not just your qualities like are you smart, kind, professional, but also what matters to you.
Do people know what matters to you, the better world you imagine?
In this episode, you’ll hear:
- How your business connects to your thought leadership
- How your personal brand connects to your thought leadership
- Example from my own personal brand and thought leadership
- Pushback I got early on when I started my business about a particular aspect of my personal brand
- Finding the consistency and commonality among all of the threads in your career
- What humans have over AI when it comes to storytelling
