Publisher's Summary

A guide to becoming a recognized expert in your field.

Too many people believe that if they keep their heads down and work hard, they will be lauded as experts on the merits of their work. But that's simply not true anymore. To make a name for yourself, you have to capitalize on your unique perspective and knowledge and inspire others to listen and take action. But becoming a "thought leader" is a mysterious and opaque process. Where do the ideas come from, and how do they get noticed?

Dorie Clark explains how to identify the ideas that set you apart and promote them successfully. The key is to recognize your own value, cultivate your expertise, and put yourself out there.

Featuring vivid examples and drawing on interviews with Seth Godin, Robert Cialdini, and other thought leaders, Clark teaches readers how to develop a big idea, leverage existing affiliations, and build a community of followers. She offers not mere self-promotion, but an opportunity to change the world for the better while giving you the ultimate job insurance.

Precision and clear strategies on STANDING OUT.

I had already read Dorie's book, Entrepreneurial you and found it useful and was eager to learn more about what she had done to make herself "stand out". I listened to the book straight through and will do so a few more time to let it all soak in. Great practical advice with little investment. You will hear info from someone who has done every single step she is sharing with you. Very credible and practical and a window into the world of making yourself visible in social media in a professional way.

Powerful! Yet Down to Earth Advice

Dorie Clark covers the necessary angles and perspectives in this book to jumpstart anybody's search for finding and/or Developing an idea and a personal or business brand. I am now motivated to do just that.
I found her tone of voice very strong and convincing and still very pleasant to the ear. This makes for a very easy and pleasant reading. She offers plenty of specific examples about current events and successful people, the ones we normally hear or see in our devices on a daily basis. This makes it easy to associate with and understand her message very well.
Overall, I rate her book based on how I rate her as a person. She shows genuine interest in helping others and providing great and actionable value with the content she delivers. She does this with enough authenticity, which helps to create a greater impact and leave a more lasting memory.
I enjoyed the book tremendously. I am and will be a fan of hers for a long time.

Pretty useless

I would listen to E Myth by Michael Gerber or Disrupt You by Jay Samit if you want to get the things you hoped this book would have given you.

Take a shower!

So glad that I saw Dorie speak at our cadre of event in Washington DC. Because of that, I was able to purchase this book which undoubtedly will add so much to my life. This book is extremely well-written, concise, and full of thought-provoking questions that guides you down a path to not only create your big idea, but ensure you can build a following around it. And yes, great ideas do occur in the most amazing places, like the shower :-)
