    Good video, thanks for sharing.I would like to add that having your blog is essential for building the brand but it is nothing wrong with using other sites (social sites, adsense revenue sharing…) to build links back to your blog and make a few bucks of additional income.Your own blog should be #1 priority because it will not go away, like these other sites can at any time.

    Quick and to the point, yet the message is extremely important. If only more entrepreneurs understood this!

    Great post and there’s nothing wrong with the “I need to shave” look. I’ve mastered it for years.

    Tom,

    Absolutely… at the end of the day you need a hub… I think of it like a spider’s body, and the legs are different links/traffic sources going back to it…

    A blog is the best type of hub imo, but others can work too.

    So true, you can make quick bucks with Web2.0 but it’s no business.

    OK,

    If YOU are the business or brand. How do you sell the business? Little to no longevity. If you’re wanting funding etc. VC’s look at the business, not you. If you up sticks, the business folds.

    Yes, it is like a spider’s body! The internet is its web. And I truly believe in building your personal brand online as well as your credibility.

    Great Video, it’s always a stuggle to know if you should focus where the money is or where your passion is.

    I guess you should always brand your passion.

    I think I’m rambling ;-)

    J-Create, you use your personal brand to build a REAL business. A personal brand is only valuable if you leverage it.

    Hi Dean,

    Your video resonated with me. Investing in your personal brand takes so much time, that occasionally I’ll fall back into thinking “is this all worth it”. Watching your video just affirmed the importance so thank-you.

    p.s. A tip: It’s difficult to hear the audio in a noisy environment (my office) so try a different mic or speak louder…

    Yes, I agree! I’ve taken personal branding seriously after reading “Crush It!”
    You can’t rely on everyone or even products because they’ll disappear eventually. All you’ll be left with is yourself and what have you done to build yourself up?
    Personal branding is the way to go.
