Podcast: Elevating Your Personal Brand – Tyler Mount

Tyler Mount

This week on the Digital Velocity Podcast, Tyler Mount of Henry Street Creative joins Tim and Erik to discuss building and elevating your personal brand.

The most important marketing asset individuals have is themselves. Tyler says,

“…personal brand, the idea of understanding who you are and unapologetically presenting that to the world is actually our greatest marketing strength. It’s not LinkedIn. It’s not your resume.”

Discovering your personal brand begins with being genuine and honest about who you are. Tyler explains,

“So, the first place that we start is from a place of, you’ve guessed it, authenticity. If I can be unapologetically authentic about my experience and who I am and forget who I am trying to appease or forget who I am thinking I should market to, and instead market to my authentic built-in consumer, that’s when the storytelling really comes to life.”

When we discover our authentic self and present it to others, true success starts to occur. Tyler says,

“Once we really start to grasp that, not only will we find more deeply rooted, incredible human connection, but we also will find our lives both personally and professionally really starting to thrive.”

Listen to this week’s episode to learn more about how to find and promote your personal brand.
