Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Kaputa, a marketing and branding whiz, mines anecdotes from successful women and her own personal experience to sell readers on themselves-rather than trying to be "one of the boys," Kaputa insists, women will get farther in the workplace by using the strengths unique to them. Stuffed with self-evaluation materials, direct advice and "brainstormer" exercises, Kaputa has put together a useful, well-organized primer on a familiar argument. While some of the generalizations are a bit heavy handed-women have stronger verbal skills than men, women derive less satisfaction from high-level "workaholic" positions-Kaputa breaks down the idea of personal branding into manageable concepts: specialization, presentation and effective networking. In uncertain economic times, this text should prove useful for job seekers, the underemployed, and those striving for advancement.

Branding expert and founder of SelfBrand LLC, Kaputa (U R a Brand!: How Smart People Brand Themselves for Business Success) examines how women can brand themselves for success in the workplace, suggesting that women must first stop acting like men in order to get ahead. Other suggestions include honing your intuition, making the most of a more female collaborative style, and even creating a unique fashion and personal style to draw attention to you as a brand, which may rub some readers the wrong way. Still, those seeking to diversify their business titles may want to consider it.

Kaputa shows women how to maximize their innate abilities, gifts, and traits to advance their careers and boost their professional influence. Along the way, female readers learn how they can develop a unique, powerful personal brand that gets them noticed, remembered, and respected. Readers will find dozens of how-to, practical tips for everything from infiltrating the good-old-boy network to using visual tools (e.g. hair, makeup, clothing, accessories) to gain influence and power in the business world [.] With women soon to be a majority of the workforce for the first time in American history, and more female Fortune 500 CEOs than ever before, this is a priceless and timely book.
Clinton Kelly |s Co-host
Whether you need a total career makeover or just a little refining around the edges, The Female Brand will show you how to get ahead while staying true to yourself. Empowering, insightful, and fun to read.

    As a woman in business, I always found myself was threatened by men’s confidence and how well they present themselves. I work as hard as men but I don't get as much attention as male coworkers. After read Catherine Kaputa’s female branding book, I realized that it is not only about hard work, it is also about branding. As she stated in the book: hard work + branding = success. Personally, I consider myself a hard worker but I don't quite know how to brand myself, which is probably why I did not stand out.

    I have learned in her book that men don't leave their advantages behind when they go to work and neither should women. I have also learned that being a businesswoman, you have to overcome your shyness and self-consciousness, brand yourself the right way in order to achieve success.
