  • Logos are not brands. ®
  • Personal brands, are in part, your audience’s perception of you.
  • You do not control your brand. Your brand is determined by those around you who know and experience you in their various interactions. You can only influence your brand.
  • Every place you go, the actions and things you do and say help others form an opinion of you and influence your overall brand.
  • We see ourselves clearly, but the collection of perceptions about who we are and what we stand for is muddled.
  • We want to showcase the size of the network as being large
