And that brand is YOU. So how do we do that? How do we determine what that is and build on it? It starts by asking yourself questions. Like “What is my purpose? What is my passion? What am I known for?” Then you can reach out to your network of friends and colleagues and create your own focus group and do a little market research asking them those same questions.
