Read an Excerpt

Your brand is your calling card. It's your reputation in the marketplace, and if you don't work every day to build a strong and enduring brand, others will do it for you. Simply put, building your brand is not an activity or a function.

It has to be built into your DNA as a professional. It goes a lot further that having a logo, a slogan and a Web site. It's a lot more than being on Facebook or Twitter. It's how you treat your customers and your clients and whether you follow up and follow through on your commitments.

The people who understand their brand are more likely to succeed.
