The creation of an asset that pertains to a particular<br />person or individual; this includes but is not limited to the appearance and<br />knowledge contained within, leading to an indelible impression that is<br />uniquely distinguishable. <br />Personal branding often involves the application of one&apos;s name to various<br />products.
