Intro:  Welcome to the E6S-Methods podcast with Jacob and Aaron, brought to you by E6S Industries, your source for expert training, consulting, and leadership in business performance and continuous improvement methods, like Lean and Six Sigma. In this episode number 85, we have a very special guest- author, speaker and all-around terrific person, Ellen Looyen, here to give you tips on how to take control of how others perceive you, your personal brand.  Ellen donated a lot of time to us, so much that we're splitting this into two parts.  Now, I don't do a lot of interviews, and I'm very selective about the types of work I help promote.  I only choose guests who are willing to give helpful tips that are directly pertinent to you, the listener. I hope you find it valuable.  Have a listen and check out Ellen's web page ellen4branding.com to download a free chapter from her book.  Here we go. http://bit.ly/E6S-085; http://bit.ly/E6S-iTunes
