RISE: A New Non-Boring Web Show For Entrepreneurs And Marketers Ready To Launch
Many of you know, that we are launching RISE, a NEW daily web show starting Monday, January 4th (as well as a website redesign which explains right now why on TheRiseToTheTop.com some things may look a little bit “off”). I figured it would be time to take a quick break and give us all a chance to take off that awful holiday sweater to tell you a little bit more about it and why you might be interested in becoming a regular viewer.

      Good ones!

  • David,

    Great interview today with Dan Schawbel! I saw your Sunday morning tweet asking to describe my brand in three words, and although I speak to college students about consciously guiding their brand development and maintenance as an integral part of their university experience , I was stumped. Three words? I can think of several three word combinations I want it to be. To accurately gauge reality, I’m going to ask those who know me (well and not-so-well) over the next two weeks – after all, brand perception is reality.

    Dan is right when he covers how important networking is to establishing a real brand – you really can’t do either one well without integrating the other. He is also spot-on with personal branding being independent of social media – sometimes we confuse the rise of the social media tools as bringing about personal branding – in reality, the social media tools have added great variety to communicating personal brands, which have existed throughout history.

    You and Dan have given me plenty to think about today and several action items. Thanks!

    Keep up the great work,

    Rick

      Hey Rick – So glad you enjoyed it! It is one of those little tough challenges. I keep thinking of way too many words as well. I’ll be interested to see how others describe you. Let me know.

      Yes, it is so true. Social media amplifies what you put out there if done well, but it doesn’t create it. You create it.

  • highly enjoyable interview. keep it up, good sir

    • David Siteman Garland

      Thanks, Chris. Y’all keep coming and I’ll keep interviewing 🙂

    Keep up the good work!!

    • David Siteman Garland

          Nice – If you are ever in St. Louis you have to check out Classic Car Studio. They are awesome.

    I enjoyed watching the video, and think you do very good work for the startup and the wannabe sector. I am however not too happy about the fact that you too suffer from the disease that affects everybody who has – like myself – been online since the early 90s. It plays itself out in us hyperconnecteds and “oldies” looking down on the poor sods who discovered computers in 2006, social media in 2008 an now go around calling themselves “experts” and “gurus”. My approach to that has ongoingly been to tackle the “expert” one-on-one instead of lashing out at them in my blogposts or videos. We are the ones who are responsible for these people coming out the woodwork two days ago, watched a bunch of videos and read a few ebooks.. and are now convinced that if we can do it.. so can they.

    Apart from that virus doing the rounds, I am pleased with myself for having found your blog and having gone through some posts just last night whilst waiting for your video wit Dan Schawbel to load on my 384kbps connection at home. As with all good blogs I believe I can learn from, I have subscribed to your RSS feed and will do my rounds a few times a week via my RSS reader.

    On the personal branding topic, man I have loved it since day one. In fact I have lived it. The funny thing is that a lot of things take shape now in this time and is phrased and framed etc. In 1988 at age 16 – in order to get out of gang membership – I joined a group of punk rockers and started wearing boots, black clothing, painted my finger nails, listened to Sex Pistols, The Cure, The Clash etc.. and most of my former gangster buddies though I was nuts. Whilst that was a terrific solution, that was my first lesson in branding; specifically personal branding. And from there on I have been through the mill a number of times with my personal brand evolving and changing constantly as I grew older and more mature. So whilst personal branding is not new to me, I really enjoy watching it as a topic people are really really passionate about and create content around.

    Like I said, I’m gonna be around this neighborhood rather frequently in future

      Hi Arthur,

      First of welcome to RISE and thank so much for taking the time and watch and your comment.

      I wouldn’t say we cater to the “wannabe” sector. Although we do have aspiring entrepreneurs. Most of our community has started a business and are looking to grow it. Or have a growing. Some of course are thinking of starting one which is great.

      Interesting story on personal branding, I really appreciate you sharing it with all of us and excited you will become a frequent visitor.

    Hi David,

    Just took 30 minutes at the end of a busy day to watch this episode. I really enjoyed it. I’ve hunted down Tom Peter’s article and plan to have a read tonight. Thanks for the great content. I’ve added the site to my RSS reader, and I’ll be sure to check out some of the past episodes.

    I’m trying to define my own Personal Brand at the moment and I got some great tips from this episode. I work for an IT multinational and I’ve recently started blogging over here http://bloggertone.com/author/frankbradley/ in order to start getting the word out about my skills and expertise. One thing I’ve learned from this episode is the importance of getting my own site setup.

    • David Siteman Garland

      Frank – Thanks so much. That means a lot that you took the time. Seriously, I really appreciate it.

      Awesome, congrats on the start with the blog. And yes, getting your “house” setup is always a HUGE first step.

  • Eric

    Wow “What I’m doing is attached to who I am so much that it’s inseparable. If you hate personal branding you probably hate me”. That’s what it’s all about right there. He knows exactly who he is and what he stands for. Love it. You can’t fake that passion and people appreciate it so much that they want to do business with him.

      Eric – Great pick up on that quote!
