“Branding is for products. Also for CATTLE. People — even artists — aren’t products. You may make things, but YOU aren’t a thing. Resist the temptation to climb into a perfectly-crafted brand identity. Instead, practice claiming your whole self — your wild, weird, ever-changing, ever-learning, mistake-making, beautiful/awful whole self; something so much more powerful and honest than a brand.” - Shauna Niequist


"Personal branding is not about pretending to be a perfect person. It's being real to the world with your flaws and fortes." - Bernard Kelvin Clive


"Personal branding is about building authority that gets people to pay attention to your message and want to share it and recommend it to others." - Mark Traphagenof


“A pro can help you with more than just lighting and lenses that exceed the quality of your standard iPhone. An experienced pro can help you with composition and visual storytelling.” - Buddy Scalera


"Brand the real you. Be brutally, authentically, honestly you and you will win with the people that matter." - Tom Ferry


"You have to understand your own personal DNA. Don’t do things because I do them or Steve Jobs or Mark Cuban tried it. You need to know your personal brand and stay true to it." - Gary Vaynerchuk


“Visual content is a cornerstone of almost every branding campaign. And yet, we still see respectable brands using stock photographs that undermine the credibility of their hard- earned visual-branding standards.” -Buddy Scalera


“Your personal brand is a promise to your clients... a promise of quality, consistency, competency, and reliability.” - Jason Hartman
