In today's episode, I talk to Dorie Clark, author of "Reinventing You" (Harvard Business Review Press, 2013) and "Stand Out," which was named the #1 Leadership Book of 2015 by Inc. magazine. A former presidential campaign spokeswoman, she is a frequent contributor to the Harvard Business Review, Forbes, and Entrepreneur, and the World Economic Forum blog. Recognized as a "branding expert" by the Associated Press, Fortune, and Inc. magazine, Clark is a marketing strategy consultant and speaker for clients including Google, Microsoft, Yale University, Fidelity, and the World Bank.
Key takeaways for writers:
- When people ask you what's new, be ready to update them about the milestones in your life, because it's the only way you'll be top of mind for possible networking connections.
- If you have people around you who take art seriously, it helps you take it more seriously.
