Let's explore the formula for personal brand and how you can manifest your brand.

The formula for a personal brand

What I did accidentally, you can do intentionally.

A nice formula for a personal brand is Identity + Opinions. A personal brand based solely on who you are doesn’t really communicate what you’re about. A personal brand based solely on what you do is quite… impersonal. People like knowing a bit of both, and you can give it to them in a few short words. Some ideas:

  • “I’m a former public school teacher, and I think the way we teach people to code can be greatly improved.”
  • “I was an actual architect, and we’re doing software architecture all wrong.”
  • “I did my graduate thesis on static analysis, and I see a new generation of tools that make developers faster and less frustrated.”
