Personal branding is the process whereby people and their careers are marked as brands.  It has been noted that while previous self-help management techniques were about self- improvement , the personal branding concept suggests instead that success comes from self- packaging . 
Personal branding often involves the application of one's name to various products. For example, celebrity real-estate mogul Donald Trump uses his last name extensively on his buildings and on the products he endorses (e.g., Trump Steaks).
