Note from Peter Shankman

It is no one else’s fault if your personal brand isn’t how you want it to be. It’s not Facebook’s fault. It’s not Twitter’s fault. It’s not LinkedIn’s fault. It’s not the fault of someone who wrote on your wall, or tagged you in a photo.

If your personal brand isn’t coming across how you want it to, it’s YOUR FAULT.

And you have the power to change that. Talk to people. Be relevant. Produce interesting content, each day. Provide useful insights.

But most importantly, stop blaming other people, things, or devices, and start making your personal brand the way you want it to be.

Go.
