Launching your own personal brand is similar to a shuttle getting into outer space. Shuttles requires a concentrated amount of energy for a certain period of time to get out of the atmosphere and then only need a fraction once it's entered outer space, using bursts to move around easily.
When growing a personal brand someone should ask themselves some deep questions before they launch. This way once it's out in the public eye they can easily navigate with small bursts of activity aligned with their personal brand.
