      • Develop Your Brand Name (Usually your name if it’s unique, or a nickname)
      • Obtain domain(s) from domain registrar, I use GoDaddy.com
      • If you choose to establish your domain, consider getting the main TLD (Top Level Domains) like .com, .net, .org, .info.
      • This will help ensure only one perceived message related to a domain name.
    • My web image – Gravatar.com
      • When you comment on forums or blogs, your Gravatar image is associated with your email.  Which is associated with your name.
    • Social Networks

      • Not essential but a place to Advertise my profile, my resume, my message to potential customers

This list will get you started with your Personal Brand.  The more time you spend developing your Personal Brand the more you will understand the importance of your message, your image and protecting your reputation.
