Orlando, Fla. – October 13, 2010 – Co-founder of the Dicks and Nanton Celebrity Branding Agency and best-selling author, JW Dicks, Esq., America’s Foremost Expert on Personal Branding for Business Development, recently posted a blog giving three ways to build credibility through a personal branding strategy.

The latest blog, titled “Personal Branding: 3 Ways to Build Credibility” was posted on October 12, 2010, on JW’s website, The post includes the following excerpt:

One of the most important building blocks of creating and cultivating your personal brand is to have credibility in the eyes of your clients and prospective clients.  Over the years, I have found that the most common reason that entrepreneurs and small businesspeople are reluctant to shine the spotlight on themselves is their own perceived lack of credibility.

A common misconception is that one must have as many degrees and years of formal education as possible to build credibility.  This simply isn’t true.  As my business partner Nick Nanton and I point out in our book “Celebrity Branding You!” some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs have had little or no formal education.  What they had was an idea and the skills to make that idea valuable to the masses.

In the book, we point out three ways that you can build credibility as a celebrity expert in your field.  These three things are just a few of the things you can do to showcase your knowledge and personality – and strengthen your personal branding strategy.
