Now with the Internet, social media, and the unrelenting hum of 24/7 business, the ability to brand and promote yourself effectively has become absolutely essential.

So, how do you stand out and get ahead?
The subtle and amazingly effective art of self-promotion is the razor-thin difference between success and failure.
