What is a Personal Brand?
Your personal brand is your identity or your reputation. A definition that Dr. Andrea loves is,
“Your personal brand is what others think and say about you when you're not in the room.”

Step 3: Take a Personality Test
Where Your Brand Appears in Your Podcast
Your podcast brand includes:
? What people read (show notes). Your emails (and have ONE thing in your email
? What people hear (your episodes, and the quality of audio).
? What people see (artwork). Come up with a color scheme (for example two colors) and
two fonts that you use consistently and it will build your brand
How This All Works:
Identifying your strengths, and a personal positive message that has deep personal meaning to
you, delivered in a unique way allows you to BE YOU. It will come naturally. Leaning on your
strengths can help reduce burnout as you’re not doing things that don’t come naturally.
It can clear up situations by identifying what you can and can’t do.
When you identify the verbiage you want to use, and how you want to appear and deliver your message, you provide your audience with the tools to tell their friends. If their friends ask, “What podcasts are you listening to, they can easily explain what your show is about, who it’s for, and what the benefit it. They also can explain the motivation of the show.
