Is Content Your New CV?

I saw this posted this week and it totally landed with me. Why…
1) Like many others I’m a visual person, so this caught my instant attention and just made sense from first glance.
2) We all see it. Content is becoming more and more relevant in how we build our own personal brand and engage our network and community. Whether you are a founder out raising, an operator looking to be a future founder or an investor building your portfolio. Your brand matter.
3) Content can come in so many ways - posting on social channels is just one way to engage. Podcasting, vlogging, newsletters, articles, or even visual imagery just like this one.
