My personal brand dies with me.

There are dozens of people with amazing personal brands.

- Gary Vaynerchuck

- Ramit Sethi

- Derrick Halpern

- Leonard Kim

These individuals are prolific in their fields and have built enviable businesses on the strength of their personalities.

They won’t last.

    Unless you're a fashion designer who's name IS the brand and people are seeing it everywhere, I would probably tend to agree. There's no escaping the fact that you have a personal brand whether you like it or not, but I'm not sure I would advocate "making" your brand yourself. It's one of the first rules of marketing: you have to create an idea that means something to your target audience.

      Ok, Yea, designers are excluded. Of course, we all have personal brands, but they should be subservient to the larger brand that we're a part of.
      Thanks for your insight.

    What a strange nihilist approach to branding.
