This chapter looks at the nuances of personal branding by examining characteristics of groups of people with similar issues. I’m not trying to deal in stereotypes; I’m well aware that you are the only you around. (Personal branding wouldn’t work if each person weren’t unique.) However, the groups I discuss have certain commonalities that may include values, life circumstances, or professional experience and goals.

If you’re aligned with any of the populations I cover here — whether you’re a recent college graduate, young professional, mid-career professional, executive, service professional, entrepreneur, woman, community volunteer, or international worker — I encourage you to consider the advice I offer to your peer group. You may find that these tips help you bypass some stress and head straight for success.
