Venture Capitalist Mark Suster advises start-up companies,
“If you don’t define your personal brand, the market will.”
“I have long advised startup companies that if you don’t control your message, somebody else will, and your potential customers will form impressions of you shaped by somebody else or by nobody at all.”
“It’s why it’s important to establish a brand, know what your key messages are and communicate them often and simply.”
