Bookworm1102’s Review

I received a copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review, as part of the Enchanted Book Promotions book tour.

Expand Your Personal Brand is a non-fiction business book by Carla Jenkins. In this book, Carla explains her tips and ideas for helping people, in business mostly but it can also be used in your personal relationships, find and develop their personal brand.

I liked this book, it was well laid out, very clear and concise. I understood everything that was written and I have learnt some new ways to develop my personal brand. This book was very informative, and I really liked the exercises at the end of each chapter, encouraging the reader to stop and take part in a small exercise, to help towards developing their personal brand. There is also a bibliography at the back so readers can use the links in the bibliography to find more information.

I rate this book 4/ 5 stars!
