We hear the term “personal brand” a lot, but do we know exactly what it means and how to use our personal brand to get more speaking opportunities?

Imagine getting requests from organizers to speak at their conferences and events without you having to pitch them and, even better, getting paid speaking engagements.

That’s what having a powerful personal brand can do for you.

My guest in this episode, Diane Diaz, has experienced exactly that that as she’s built her personal brand both online and offline.

We talk about:

  • What a personal brand is
  • Ways to figure out what your personal brand is (i.e. how do others see you)
  • How Diane has positioned herself as an expert and as a speaker over the past two years and the results she’s seen
  • Specific strategies you can use to create a powerful personal brand (we even come up with an alliteration of 3 S’s!)
  • Doing webinars for other people’s online communities

Be sure to also check out the Facebook Live video replay that Diane and I recently did on Leveraging LinkedIn for Speakers.

Plus, I have an exciting announcement that you’ll hear in this episode!
