Who wants to be famous?
Occasionally, when I’m speaking, there will be someone in an audience, or a delegate on one of my courses, who will scoff at my phrase Make Yourself a Little Bit Famous. I know, who would do such a thing?
They perceive the act of raising your profile as utterly self-serving, egotistical and vain.
But nothing could be further from the truth and, as you can imagine, I set them straight. You see, I say, the point of building your brand profile is to stimulate interest in what you do, not who you are. Unless you want to ‘do a Kardashian’ of course.
The alternative is to remain a best kept secret, so Making yourself a little bit famous is the ideal middle ground!
