Stop Plastering Yourself All Over the F****** Internet!

And Other Unsolicited Advice for Building a Personal Brand

“Hey, look at me! I’m a self-obsessed douchebag who lacks creativity and I want to make sure you recognize me in real life!”

Champion the people you help and share their stories.

Be an accessible human being who has a sense of humor.

Slow down and use a little creativity.

Share what you do instead of who you are.

Be honest with people you don’t know.

Otherwise, the internet will suffer the same fate as reality TV — a meaningless existence.
