Episode #383 of Six Pixels of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to.
Tom Peters is widely regarded as the individual who brought the concept of personal branding to the masses in a cover story for Fast Company magazine back in 1997 titled, The Brand Called You. This moment started many ancillary businesses as individuals started to become personal branding consultants. This multiplied and grew in magnitude once social media became pervasive. Suddenly, everyone could be a media producer and a content creator (for free and with access to a global audience). What we wound up with was a bunch of suspicious individuals and a fleet of snake oil salespeople. Thankfully, we have people like William Arruda who get it right. He writes, he speaks but most importantly, he does the real work. He doesn't just talk about personal branding as a way to build his own brand, he teachers leaders and major organizations about the merits of investing in people and helping those people to be their best. I've been following his work for close to a decade, so it was a pleasure to finally get him on the podcast. Enjoy the conversation.
