We try our whole lives to show the world who we are – after all, we live in a world of profiles and bios. Those never do justice when it comes to defining what our personal brand is. Social media just makes it easier for us to control our image.
As Jeff Bezos famously quoted, “Your brand is what other people say about you when you’re not in the room.”
A personal brand gives people a clear understanding of who we are and the skills we have to offer.
We found these 5 books quite inspiring and believe they will help build up our personal brand and give us the confidence to go after what we want:
