Personal brand strategist Rachel Gogos comments: “This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to better understand what their personal brand is, identify their brand attributes, develop a personal marketing plan that will help them portray themselves authentically and then how to actually implement it. It's full of actionable steps that you can take on your own. The book also serves as a compilation of some of the best and brightest that are practicing and preaching personal branding. There is no other book on the market that includes tips and tools from other niche experts, wrapped up into one book.”
