Light Your Fire!
If you want to be successful in the long term, you can’t avoid personal branding. Only those who become visible in the first place with a clear positioning can also find supporters for their goals and actively shape the future. But to be perceived as an individual in a crowded market, you have to communicate unmistakably to the outside world – strategically planned and with a clear objective in mind.
Tilo Bonow, founder and CEO of PIABO PR, shows in his new book “Light Your Fire!” how future makers – and all those who want to become one – can sustainably build a personal brand, based on a concrete strategy. For over 20 years, Tilo Bonow has accompanied leading entrepreneurs from the digital and innovation industries on their path to success and now brings together his practical knowledge in an instructive debut work.
