The Business of Personal Branding, Simplified. 🏴






1) Find a definition for personal branding.

It's an unregulated industry.

Your game. Your rules.

But if you really want to another perspective,

β€œA personal brand is the digitization of your reputation” β€” Rory Vaden

β€œYour brand is the story that people tell themselves about you and the expectations that they have when you walk in the room.” β€” Seth Godin

It's the mental space that occupies in people's minds.

It's the idea of being known for one thing.

It's the influence that you have on other people.


2) Find direction based on your skill set

These are the most common PB paths. Pick any:

  • Public relations, press, publicity (communications, journalism, media, etc.)
  • Social media and online influence (marketing, content creation, affiliate, etc.)
  • Identity and personal development (coaching, healing, training, etc.)
  • Public figure management (ghostwriting, editing, storytelling, etc.)


3) Create a business around that


A) Product/service

Find a problem to solve,

Solve it.


B) Sales

Find a person to solve it for.

Help them.


C) Marketing

Find a message that speaks to that person.

Spread it.

4) Mindset orientation

Do these basic principles for at least 6 months and you'll have your first clients.


Your counter is now -6.

Set it to 0 when you finish your 6-month trial.

They're going to be the hardest and most challenging months in business. Ever.

But they're going to teach you so much about yourself.

It's not the clients or the money that will make you feel successful.

It's the newfound self-respect that you'll develop along the way.

It's the transformation that you'll witness first-hand.

It's the infinite version of yourself that only exists at the end of extreme effort.

It's a version of yourself that is stuck in a dark, dream, finite maze inside your soul.

And the only way out is becoming someone new.



There isn't any.

It's you against you.

You can do this. I believe in you.

But do you believe in you?


And there you have it,

A simplified personal branding business.

Is this dumb enough for you to take action on it? I hope so.
