We all look to our idols to fulfil our fantasies be it in construction, film, the arts, sports, astrology….you name it.
What do they all have in common?
They put themselves in a position to “get noticed”.
Every single one of us is constantly putting our own personal brand and marketing strategy out there for the world to see through one to one conversations, emails, phone calls, social media posts and the most powerful of all “word of mouth”
We all have individual qualities that define who we are, our individuality and diversity which make us all unique/sellable/employable in our own right.
There’s no “right and wrong” where personal brand is concerned, you’ll find your own cheerleaders however marketing yourself is the key to outshining your competition when it comes to your job search.
Employers look for employees who have something different about them and stand out from the sea of applications.
Take the course to learn what your unique selling points are and how to appeal to your target audience
Some people never have to go for an interview or apply for a job because their own day to day marketing/personal brand is so strong it precedes them
Personal Branding and what it says about these individuals:
Richard Branson – has developed a leadership style that focuses of the needs of employees, the wishes of customers and his shareholders. In Richard Branson’s case he’s established a unique brand which everyone can relate to, “if you take care of your employees, your employees will take care of your customers, and your customers will take care of your shareholders”
Reshma Saujani – Lawyer-turned-activist, is focused on closing the gender gap in the male dominated tech industry. Her brand is strong, inspirational and empowering
Elon Musk – Status quo disruptor in multiple industries. He inspires his employees to dream big, work hard and think outside the box
You and I can probably only dream of this kind of influential prowess however their type of brilliance is what has inspired a generational serge in YouTube millionaire youths, Instagram Influencers and the like.
Are these kids’ experts at the age of 10?
No, but they sure sound like it!
If a 10-year-old can do it, so can you!
Whether it’s a job promotion, CV, job search, interview, career change, social profile, introduction, winning a project, winning the girl/guy of your dreams.
The difference between winning and losing is the personal brand and marketing message you’ve aligned yourself with

Every single one of us is in a personal brand/marketing race however have you turned up to your 100m sprint with aerodynamic trainers on clumpy ski boots?
“Ask yourself if what you’re doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow”
