You have been 'a brand' all your life whether you have been aware of it or not. How people feel about you, what you stand for, what you are known for are all part of your brand. And if you aren't controlling your brand, it's controlling you. This can be as simple as a CV or references from a past employer to what is available on the internet. What is your reputation in your area of expertise? What do your friends and colleagues say about what you do and how you work when you aren't around.
The first question to ask yourself is what do you want to be known for? What makes you you? What are your skills, strengths, experiences, values, motvations and goals? How are these packaged together to make you unique? What would you like people to remember about you when your name comes up in conversation? And what kind of work or jobs would you like to be contacted about?
