What Is A Brand?
Can You Avoid Being Branded?
A brand is simply an idea that your customer, investor, or potential employer has about you or your product in their mind. A brand can be a person, place, or thing—or rather the idea we have about a person, place, or thing.
"He drives a Bentley; he must be _______."

You can't turn off someone's mind—they are going to judge you, categorize you, and position you. You must control the process!
Don't let the market, investors, or your potential boss brand you—consciously brand yourself or your product, then walk them through why you are clearly the better choice than the competition.
