The Mike Lally Brand - BRANDING YOU!

About a decade or so ago I have a series of conversations with a guy named Mike Lally about building your "personal brand." Now I don't know if Mr. Lally remembers much about these conversations, but being impressionable, I took what he had to say to heart. Essentially, the moral of the story was that an individual may change jobs every couple years--move from city to city... change industries and may follow a dozen different passions... but you will always have YOU. And if you want to be successful getting a job, keeping a job, running a business, and being an expert in whatever you do--you need to focus your life's work on building your personal brand.

Blogging is an excellent way to build your brand. It is an investment in you - one well worth making.

Mike Lally has talked a lot about personal brand as of late -- in fact, he has become a bit of an expert on it as well. The Mike Lally Brand is a strong one - and getting stronger every day. You too could learn a lot about branding from Mike Lally...

Great job Mike.

Thank you Mrs Weir for the kind words and the link. The "Mike Lally Brand" is definitely NOT "Mr. Lally". But it gave me a chuckle. And I am happy to have provided a spark for what has become your flame of personal branding! :)
