Personal Branding Magazine “Internet Famous” Issue: Chamillionaire, Brian Solis, Brian Clark, Chocolate Rain and Chris Moody?

Dan Schawbel is the leading authority on personal branding and runs one of the top personal branding blogs around.

A couple of months ago, I received an email from Dan… and honestly I thought it was spam. I’ve followed Dan for a while, but had never chatted with him before. What’s even cooler is that the email came in through my Contact Us Plus widget from Phonebooth. 🙂

Dan asked if I’d chime in on how people can build a personal brand online, a topic that I preach frequently (especially when at local colleges and universities).

If you aren’t familiar with Personal Branding Magazine, it is an awesome publication. Vanna White, Seth Godin, Kathy Ireland, Evander Holyfield, Guy Fieri and even Donald Trump have all been interviewed in previous issues.

While I am definitely not “Internet Famous” or extravagant and wealthy… I was happy to oblige.
