Anthony Bourdain – A Lesson in Creating a Powerful Personal Brand

Anthony Bourdain

Open your mind, get up off the couch, move. 

Anthony Bourdain is a reality TV personality, chef and author who has been exploring the world and sharing his travels with us all on his series No Reservations, The Layover, and Part’s Unknown. Bourdain has been in the public eye for more than 15 years, and he has been to places many people only dream to go, and places we may have never even knew existed.

Bourdain’s quirky quotes have been shared by many on social media:

“Your body is not a temple, it’s an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.”

“Good food is very often, even most often, simple food.”

“Open your mind, get up off the couch, move.”

From humble beginnings, and a past drug addiction, Bourdain has managed to turn his lifestyle into one of envy – travelling the world, meeting new people and eating great food. A personal brand is something anyone can create – but how? A lesson from Anthony Bourdain: Be interesting, be unique and people will begin to see you as the go-to person in your industry or niche. Be your authentic self, develop your communication skills, write blogs and thought leadership articles, build your online presence, be open to learning and identify with your strengths and weaknesses. When your personal brand is growing, opportunities will start to come to you and doors will open.

Bourdain combined his skills and knowledge in cooking, writing and speaking to create his powerful personal brand and has since received many foodie followers and fans from his popular reality TV shows.
