What’s Your Brand?
This year, we challenge you to decide what your personal brand is. Own it.
What do these three logos have in common?
Each of these brands imply an image. Of quality. Of style. Of being the best. Likewise, we all have our own personal image, our own brand. We can either haphazardly make choices that allow others to define our brand for us, or we can consciously define who we are, what we stand for.
So we ask the question, Who are you?
What qualities do you want others to associate with your name?

Avoid the random. Proactively plan who you are and who you want to be.
