"Your brand is what people say about you when you're not in the room" - Jeff Bezos, Founder of Amazon
Working with a tight economy, restructuring, and new ways of doing business, the competition for a position or sale has become intense, so who shines out above everyone else in that situation? Those people that are spending the time developing their own personal brand.
As a professional, think about developing your own personal brand, the brand of You.com. Ask yourself, what is it you want to be known for? How do you want others to see you? What needs to change? Start working on standing out in a positive way.
