Brand Authenticity: Why It’s Important to Remain Real in a “Perfect” World

Karianne Munstedt of Karianne Munstedt Portrait will inspire you to understand what a personal brand is and why it is important; infuse authenticity and vulnerability into your brand in a way that works for you; and celebrate how imperfectly perfect you are.
