Whether some people accept it or not, all individuals have a personal brand. It is those unique characteristics that make you, YOU – unique and outstanding in your own right. A personal brand is who you are and what you decide you want to be known for beyond how other people perceive you to be.

But why do you have to work on a personal brand and why is it such an important endeavor in this time and age?
