A personal brand says a lot about who you are and how you conduct business. It reflects your cherished beliefs and values. It demonstrates your ethics to colleagues, employees, business partners and customers.
In Your Personal Brand: Your Power Tool to Build Career Integrity, Kevin Iwamoto, GLP, GTP, offers valuable guidance on creating and maintaining a personal brand throughout your career.

Says Iwamoto: "My vision statement is: If you want respect - respect others. When you learn something - share it. When your friends and family need you - be there. Love and live life unconditionally and without regret. Everything I do reflects that statement. It helps me maintain my brand integrity on both a personal and professional level."
