I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again…every youpreneur should have their personal brand running side-by-side their main business structure. Why, you might ask? Well, when you shift your focus and concentrate on putting more fuel into your personal brand, it builds trust. Trust in you. Trust in your brand. And, perhaps more importantly, trust in your business.
But the real question I want to dig into and explore in more detail is one I get asked time and time again…how much does your personal brand really influence the overall success of your business?
This has been a hot topic over recent years and so I wanted to really get into it with my guest on this podcast episode, Pete Matthew from Meaningful Money. We talk all about his journey and how he’s used his personal brand to grow his business, further his professional career and realise his dream of becoming a published author.
It’s a fantastic conversation filled with one value bomb after the other. So, grab a notebook and hold onto your hats, it’s a wild ride!
