When looking on the Internet for personal branding, the most hits you will get is about applying for jobs, how to build a career etc. But can quitting your job be a step forward to your personal brand?
For me, the answer is without a doubt, yes. The personal brand is about being who you are, not about being your work.
The reason for me not writing a lot lately is because I have decided to do just that, leaving the company that I am the co-founder of. That is not an easy decision, but I feel that my role in the company has developed into something that I have hard identifying myself with.
The decision is taken and now I feel great about it. Ok, a little insecure about the future, but inspired to start something new, building my brand by acting as me, privately as well as professionally.
October is my last month at Saligus. I want to thank all the stakeholders for my time at the company, and I wish you all the best of luck!
