The Monthly Roundup series was not published for the past few months, as I was busy getting the Podcast up and running. So I decided to do a Summer Roundup instead (for the months of June, July, August).

Summer is a busy time for most people. Everyone is usually away travelling or involved in some fun activities, so you might not have had time to review your favourite Personal Branding posts.

Let me make it easier for you.
