I'm Diane Diaz, The Brand Teacher
And I have a true passion for teaching people how to build their personal brands that was developed through years of building my own personal brand across several career shifts.
After 15 years in the marketing field, the last 9 of which were in real estate, I was laid off and had to figure out what was next for me. Talk about a career shift! That's when I became a teacher at the university where I now teach. Branding myself as a teacher was a far cry from branding myself as a corporate marketer. Then, in March 2016 while still teaching, I started my consulting business, The Brand Teacher, and rebranded myself yet again as a business owner and consultant. I know first hand how scary, frustrating, and overwhelming it can be to brand yourself to attract your dream job or clients.
One thing that has helped me stand out when these major career shifts happened is my personal brand presence. It's so important to understand how to position yourself when you're looking to switch careers or industries or to start a business. How your personal brand is perceived can be the difference between blending in and hearing crickets or standing out and attracting your dream job or clients.
