In building a personal brand there are a couple of statements that need to be taped, tattooed, or secured to your person for the rest of your life. They contain the top ten truths when it comes to building a powerful personal brand.

1. Change or Become Irrelevant

Most articles, presentations, and training on personal branding should lead off with this quote:

"If you don't like change you are going to like irrelevance even less."
—General Erik Shineski

What a brilliant quote, right? If you don't change you are going to become irrelevant. This is (more than likely) the most important rule for building a powerful personal brand.
