It is very important that you figure out where you stand with your skills professionally. If you are having difficulty in doing that for yourself, you can ask out your family members, close friends and peer network.
Once you become aware of the professional facets of your personality, it will be easier for you take your personal identity as a brand.
Figure Out What You Want To Be Known For
Defining your own personal brand today is much more than a reflection of who you are. If you truly wish to be known as a person who is a brand in himself/herself, you need to be able to assess your strengths and weaknesses honestly.
Playing on your strengths and working on your weaknesses proficiently is a great option to build yourself and grow.
Research Your Preferred Industry In Great Depth
If you have an industry where you wish to grow yourself as a brand, it is crucial that you have the best possible knowledge of the concerned industry. Sift out a list of people who are already leaders in the industry, find out if they are active in blogging, have their own websites and what kind of information they share.
Before starting out, it is best to have the knowledge of what is already available in the industry. Makes it easier to make a good start.

This is a very obvious point, but it still is here as it is really vital to grow yourself. Be available, and be as active as you can possibly be. The platforms can be a business page on Instagram, a good LinkedIn profile with connections from relevant industry, and such. Being available online is going to work wonders as people can reach out to you very easily.
All the best!
