NEWS & EVENTS

AUGUST 13 | Early Registration Ends for the Certified Personal Brand Strategist Program

Personal branding isn't the flavor of the month. It is a transformational process entrepreneurs, small business owners, executives, professionals, and job seekers use to find authenticity and articulate the branded value that makes them more influential, indispensable, and incredibly happy at work.

For your clients, personal branding is the future of career management and a proactive solution for their long-term career success.

Personal branding launches your career, boosting your confidence to know you are doing the best for your client, taking the right steps and not having to make it up as you go.

After the CPBS program, you'll sound and feel like an expert exiting the spiral of constantly hunting new clients at a low price point with your new, long-term value proposition that converts your ideal clients.

In the Certified Personal Brand Strategist program, you will learn the Reach Personal Branding, a comprehensive, three-step process for uncovering, communicating, and nurturing your personal brand.

Early Registration Ends August 13
