Personal Branding Predictions: The Top 9 for '09

by   |    |  320 views

When I starting my personal-branding business eight years ago, virtually no one had even heard of personal branding, let alone considered buying some of it—hence a rocky start to an eventually burgeoning business.

But interest in personal branding has grown tremendously, the term has become a part of the careers industry vernacular, and personal-branding consultants have set up shop around the globe. When I launched my company (Reach), there were five other consultants providing personal branding services—and I knew all of them. Now, there are thousands, from New York to New Delhi.
