When Building Your Authentic Brand, It's Better to Know:
- Who is your target audience.
- The why (or purpose).
- Your authentic self.
We all agree it's always important to be true to yourself. Understand that in this digital age that we live in, people can see and have a perception of you (that's your brand). Realize that everyone has a pretty good "B.S." meter. Keep in mind an integral part of your brand is YOU!
