The latest blog, titled “Personal Branding: The Food Truck Phenomenon,” was posted on September 10, 2010, on JW’s website, The post includes the following excerpt:

Gourmet food trucks are starting to pop up in major cities across the country…this time in front of office buildings, parks and downtown areas.  And it is no longer snack food.  These trucks are staffed by well-trained culinary experts and experienced chefs.  I’ve noticed that, just like themed restaurants, these trucks are using marketing and branding to set themselves apart – specifically personal branding.

The personal branding lesson?  Ask yourself how you can shape your business around your personality.  What traits can you market to other like-minded people? Combine your personal brand with your expertise, and you’ve automatically made yourself and your product or service unique.
