Are you capitalizing on your personal brand to grow your business?
Today’s episode is from the #GetHired Summit, where I participated on a recent panel as a personal brand expert. This summit was presented by Mentorli, an app designed to help diverse talent get hired through mentorship with the goal of matching underrepresented talent with amazing companies.
With the rising unemployment rate due to the global pandemic, the #GetHired Summit was aimed at giving professionals the tools they need to get hired in a quickly-changing job market.
For the record, even though this is called the “Get Hired Summit,” personal branding works exactly the same way. Whether you’re an entrepreneur trying to land a client or you’re trying to get hired for a full-time role. All of the panelists have used their personal brands to grow inside of organizations. As well as start their own businesses.
How to Land New Clients & Get Hired Using Your Personal Brand
We cover all things personal branding as well as platforms you can use to help you with growing your brand.
And side note—one of the platforms we discuss is the value of LinkedIn. And if you need proof that it’s a valuable platform for entrepreneurs, LinkedIn is exactly how I received the opportunity to speak on this panel.

This panel of personal brand experts was moderated by Luke Mocke, the Co-Founder of Mentorli. The experts on this panel have experiences ranging from leveraging their personal brands to create opportunities while just starting out in their careers to using it to reinvent themselves after years in the workforce.
