In today’s episode, Laura welcomes personal branding strategist, co-founder, and CMO, Karen Gamba, to discuss recognizing core values when developing a brand.
Each day, every person should be on a journey of self-discovery. Recognize and share your failures with those around you because these are the stories that people will remember and learn from. The world is rapidly changing and we have more choices now than we ever did. We have the opportunity to ask questions and see if it brings us value. Additionally, we find ourselves in a place where we can be better about our lives, and each other, and how we are collaborating. We live in a world where people are hyper-aware of what we are leaving behind and what we are seeing happening.
Listen until the end of the episode to learn about building a personal brand, how stories of triumph and failure need to be shared to be authentic with audiences, and how we all need to create spaces to discuss and act on values to build connections and strategic actions.
