Each one of us has a brand -- a personal brand, how others see us -- which is shaped by what we do, say, write, and otherwise present ourselves to others.
We can't fully control how others see us. But many of us don't even try. That is, we don't take a moment to think about how we WANT to be perceived, and then take a few simple steps to bolster that impression with purposeful action.
