The One Thing Nobody Ever Told You About Personal Branding

Don’t be an idiot.

A reputation is something you earn.

“Sometimes people pretend to be one way, but in truth, they are something else. But I believe that, in time, people will always show their true colors.”

Don’t be an idiot.

Reputation is a paradox.

“A brand for a company is like a reputation for a person. You earn reputation by trying to do hard things well.”

Instead of working on your social presence, going to meaningless networking events, or appearing to be busy at work, do ACTUAL work.

“Be more concerned with character than reputation. Character is what you are, reputation is what people think you are.”
