A meme is an idea that spreads from person to person within a culture, and on the Internet it often comes in form of an image with a phrase written over it.

You and your team have accomplished something great. Naturally you want to tell it to the rest of the company to get your well-deserved acknowledgement and build your personal brand.

Without Personal Branding Your Career is Dead [infographic]

When you read the headline of this post, you may question why you need to promote yourself as a brand. Isn’t personal branding to go too far for ordinary people who have ordinary jobs?

I don’t think so. The world has changed a lot the last years and branding yourself as well as building your brand online has become a necessity to stand out from the crowd, whether you are Justin Bieber or Maria at the reception desk. Without it, your career will be dead.
