Now Is the Time for Developing Your Personal Brand: 26 Tips

I'm going to give myself a letter grade in personal branding: F.

F is for failure. Yeah, if I'm to look back on my career from a personal branding point of view, I deserve the harsh grade. Why?

I was a laggard. I failed to get serious about developing my personal brand until I was in my 40s. Ironically, I've been writing marketing copy for thousands of brands since I was in my 20s. In the early going, I wrote for chiropractors, contractors, and all sorts of personal brands.

But I neglected mine. I was simply trying to make a living as an advertising copywriter, satisfied with the anonymity of the vocation. There was rarely a day (OK, there was never a day) when I woke up and said, "Today's a great day to develop my personal brand."

But guess what, friends?


Today is the best day to develop your personal brand. Not tomorrow. Today.
