Understanding your 'why' is key to building your unique personal brand.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which donโ€™t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Theย #1ย mistake so many of us make that is keeping us underpaid, dissatisfied and undervalued is โ€“ ๐’๐’๐’• ๐’…๐’†๐’‡๐’Š๐’๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ ๐’๐’–๐’“ ๐’‘๐’†๐’“๐’”๐’๐’๐’‚๐’ ๐’ƒ๐’“๐’‚๐’๐’….

Creating a personal brand can be tasking, but the rewards are numerous. With all the competition out there, its time for you to set yourself apart by communicating your value to the world.

What is a personal brand?

Simply put, your ๐™‹๐™š๐™ง๐™จ๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™–๐™ก ๐™—๐™ง๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ = values, experience and skills unique to you. The image you create around your professional self.

๐™‹๐™š๐™ง๐™จ๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™–๐™ก ๐™—๐™ง๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ = an intentional plan to take your career from obscurity to visibility.

So my question is โ€“ are you ready to be intentional about your personal brand?
