Let’s face it. What people think about you matters. It doesn’t matter if you’re an upcoming entrepreneur striving to change the world or you’re an artist trying to leave your mark, the way you present yourself to the world affects your opportunities for growth, and through those opportunities, the person you become. And the world is attracted to direction. People admire people who know where they’re going and who have the strength and guts to make their dreams realities. Only when you learn to find your direction and see yourself can you make the world see you.

This article is both a guide to finding your direction and a reflection about my own. I hope you find it insightful on your journey.

Your personal brand is the first thing that pops up in someone’s mind when someone thinks of you. Dr. Sean Gresh, a professor at Northeastern in communication, says a personal brand, similar to a company brand, explains who you are, what values you stand for, and how you’re trying to express those values. It is concise but detailed. It answers your what and your why. It is the accumulation of the story of your life.

Your personal brand is the answer to this question. source.
