Join Debbie and answer these questions you should be asking yourself...



  • Personal branding fascinated me,and I was looking forward to this class. But when I tuned in, I caught one of the sessions toward the end instead of the beginning,and Debbie Milman was emphatically advising against opening a conversation with niceties, such as “How are you?” Or “Is now a good time for you?” You shouldn’t ask such questions, she said,b/c it wastes time and b/c you don’t really care. That turned me off. I have heard it before,but it wouldn’t be authentic for me to follow it. I do care. I decided to watch something else. Later, I tuned in briefly again,and she was emphasizing how meaningful it is if someone picks up your business card - a predictor of success with that person. Business cards are great, but I have piles of them that I never looked at after receiving.So the advice hit me as shallow,generic and off-base.I am sure Ms Milman has some great tips, but I chose to look elsewhere.
  • this class was a wonderful combination of personal values translating in a business context, plus very VERY practical advice on how to "win" jobs. Super practical while also incorporating big picture thinking. Debbie is just a gem, multifaceted, and such an authentic speaker who deeply cares about her students.
