I recently had the opportunity to exclusively interview Sam Winsbury about five random facts about himself, what inspired him to become a brand consultant . Plus what the coolest thing he is currently working on. Check out my interview with Sam below:
Loryn: What inspired you to become a personal brand consultant?
Sam: I’ve always had a fascination around what makes certain people influential and inspiring. I started going to extra lessons on Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) when I was a 17 year old school kid, then studied psychology at university and now continue to study the most influential people in the business world. I then started (tried to start) my first marketing agency and was using LinkedIn to build my personal brand. Eventually people started reaching out to me on LinkedIn for help with their profiles, so it made sense to transition fully into personal branding. I now try to incorporate my psychology studies with marketing principles and content creativity!
Loryn: What advice do you have for those who are interested in starting
their personal brand?
Sam: Be sure to set good foundations. Build your brand on rock, not sand. LinkedIn, or any other social media site isn’t going to make you successful. But your mindset, identity, and messaging will. Get those foundational things nailed down first and then focus on platform specifics.
Loryn: Who is your dream guest that you'd love to bring onto your podcast?
Sam:Ben Francis, Founder of Gymshark. If not Ben, then I’d love to have Tim Armoo, Founder of Fanbytes or Shay Rowbottom, who everyone knows!
Loryn: What is something you are currently working on?
Sam: I have recently built out what I think is the best personal branding coaching program around. So making final tweaks for that and doing a little bit of promotion! Also creating a done-for-you personal branding service, but can’t say an awful lot about that at the moment.
Loryn: What is something not many know about you?
Sam:Ooh tough one. I think that I’m really passionate about music and a bit of a music snob!
