    The winning brand statement by Whitney White. "Digitally-driven to deliver durable career advice for #millennials by a shatterproof bond to social media. Passionate for helping others overcome barriers, reach their goals, and live to tweet about it!" Still very relevant today!

    Nice post with excellent points, Prakashan. However, I'm often unsure about how far to go in articulating my future goals in a short personal branding statement. For example, should I state my big dream of writing a best-selling novel or screen play and then selling the movie rights to Hollywood (and subsequently sailing into the sunset with my amorcita)? Some folks might perceive that as overly ambitious or arrogant. I'm reminded of my telling people in college about my dream to work in the White House after graduating, plus working for the House Majority Leader of Congress in the US Capitol before that. Nearly everyone, save my mother, provided negative feedback. No one thought it was possible except me. The impression I received was, why what they want you? Granted I'm no Einstein or rocket scientist. But I found the key is to never give up, trust in oneself and your God-given talents and abilities. Take a leap of faith. No risk, no reward. Don't listen to the naysayers. Keep thinking positive, persevering and dreaming big. Thoughts? Keep buzzing in 2017!

    I started doing contract work to scope out bad employers. It's amazing how others seem to view contractors as inanimate objects and the things they'll say about not only the company but other employees. Politics are just part of a job, backstabbing, sabotaging, vendettas are another thing all together. If that is the culture a company has fostered or allowed to grow then I'll fulfill my contract and quietly move on...

    @ Tom Laine.First I agree that the reputation of any company is built on their employees personal brands.I wish that the HR would move toward integrating their active role with the org corp strategies to meet their increased need for talent ,and,also, consider strategic planning as a foundation of their planning efforts.To strengthen the employees personal brands people motivation should not be treated as a separate factor,but as a strategy translated into new selection criteria.On the other hand,most talent are very clear about what they do well and can apply their skills in a broad range of industries,and so can't depend on referrals or endorsements.They often consider them a rather high risk and passive forms of promoting their personal brands.

    John, kudos to you for making the positive change necessary to advance your career in an uncertain job market. You provide a good roadmap for others to follow should they choose to take "a leap of faith." Like I always say, no risk no reward. And I'm very pleased that you are reaping the well deserved rewards. I shared this here, on Twitter and on LI.

    @John White, MBA, all 8 tips are great and #5 is simply perfect - but personally, it is the payoff of the last two lines - not having to feel nauseous on Sunday night - that is really what becoming your own personal brand is all about, And we also proved it is far from lonely - there is so much 'power' available once you have built that community. Insights, encouragement, and assistance is merely a comment away.

    Great article dear @John White, MBA!! And four years ago I felt exactly like you, I didn't have any visibility on Google, I didn't have LinkedIn profile, neither Twitter (well I had Twitter with zero tweets which is even worse...), and no web site. And now I look back and see the difference, and I support every of your steps on this article on Inc. Magazine.
    Well done!! And thanks for opening a path for some people. 😘

    It's a good idea from Tom peters that can energize your career strategy.Everyone should stick around the idea of branding themselves. Branding doesn't mean presenting your past "core skills", but instead positioning the output of your current "core interests" through personal and professional profile on beBee.
