Keeping Business Boundaries
Establishing and maintaining business boundaries is crucial when developing a personal brand. This means sharing enough about yourself to build trust and show your unique personality while protecting your privacy and maintaining a sense of professionalism. For Tina Tower, finding the perfect balance between showcasing her real-life experiences on social media while keeping her personal relationships private is essential to a successful personal brand. She advises entrepreneurs to be mindful of their personal boundaries, ensuring that what they choose to share aligns with their values while respecting their privacy and professional image.
Personal Brand or Business Name
One of the key decisions entrepreneurs face when building their brand revolves around choosing a personal name or a business name. The choice primarily depends on factors such as your long-term goals and your brand's unique structure. A personal brand can create a stronger emotional connection and add an intimate touch to your brand, while a business name might be more appropriate if you plan to expand the business or eventually sell it. For Tina Tower, personal branding is usually the more effective approach, as it allows entrepreneurs to build a stronger connection with their audience. However, she acknowledges that using a business name might be more suitable in specific situations, such as having multiple presenters or planning to sell the business down the road.
