With real life examples and web references throughout, this book offers value from start to finish. For a book supposedly written by two lawyers, there is no legalese…easy to read and understand.

Perfect book in this uncertain economy
The team at Celebrity Branding have created a book that will remain in my books that I read yearly. The ideas they give for someone wanting to further themselves in their career are excellent. It is a whole package book, a blueprint for taking yourself from a nobody in your industry to the industry name.
Nick Nanton – A first class act
I was just at the National Speakers Association Convention and met Nick Nanton. He has a professional operation for sure but what most impressed me most was what happened after that day we met; He had listened closely to my business plan and history and when I got off my plane, home in San Francisco, I saw he had emailed me. He detailed a brilliantly thought out title series for my book series and keynote series. It was creative. It was perfect. I was impressed. Nick Nanton is a first class act and the real deal.
“This book is a very easy read and is the ultimate blueprint for creating a business that is successful and authentic based on you. Most people don’t realize the value on expressing their individuality when creating their business. Celebrity Branding You shows you all the steps you need to take to build a business brand based on the most valuable person in your business, YOU. After reading most business books out there I would highly recommend this book for its content and valuable resources.”

One of the best books on branding yourself and your business!!
“This is truly one of the best books on branding yourself and your business on the market today.
In fact, the first words of the book are one of the most important rules of buiness, and one that is often most overlooked, people buy people. That is so true. People may not know how good your product is if they dont get to know you and build a relationship.
Jack and Nick also lay out exactly how to develop your celebrity image and how to gain credibility. No one else is giving this kind of helpful, detailed information. I have started using some of the tools described in the book and I can tell you it works.
Do yourself and your business a favor – buy this book, read it, and do the things they say!”

“Helped me understand “Branding”
What’s cool about this book is that it helped to understand that you can “Brand” yourself however you want. You are in control of the image you send out there. By way of creating your online presence and how to create credibility indicators. I’m still going through it but, so far i’m very pleased!”
– Arel Moodie (New York)

“Support to grow a healthy business
Celebrity Branding You by Nick Nanton and JW Dicks explodes with information. The authors are lawyers by trade with over fifty years combined working experience.
I read this book in one day and was surprised how easy it was to read and more important it made sense. I understand why they started by saying “People buy People”; the concept applies to any business with products or services.
I liked how the chapters are laid out, it shows that the authors were thinking of the reader and made it easy to understand by starting at the beginning of the marketing process. Each chapter then takes you through the process step-by-step, with reliable resources they have used, and examples and case studies.
I recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with their marketing plan (or lacks a plan). If you learn what Dicks & Nanton are teaching in this book, soon you will become a Branded expert and clients or customers will find you because you stand out.”
Celebrity Branding You is a fabulous book. Not only is it an interesting read (I couldn’t put it down), but it makes so much sense. For myself, I know the only way to build my business as a Corporate Golf Professional and author of Your Inner Swing, is to get my name out there and “brand” myself in the corporate world. Because I’ve never had a plan for becoming the Guru in my business laid out so clearly in front of me, I’ve been floundering. You give precise methods and ways for someone like myself to get up and running like a pro. It’s brilliant!!
– Randy Friedman
“Don’t just read this book – IMPLEMENT it!
Many entrepreneurs instinctively understand the value of becoming a celebrity to their target market but have no idea how they can systematically achieve that goal.
“Celebrity Branding You” provides a game plan that business owners can follow to build their expert celebrity status.
If becoming a client attraction magnet is your goal as a business owner, then do more than read the book with highlighter in hand. IMPLEMENT and see what becoming a celebrity to your niche market can do for your business!”
– Felicia Caldwell Gopaul
“J.W. Dicks and Nick Nanton have touched on a topic that is often overlooked by most entrepreneurs. Celebrity Branding You provides you with a well-thought game plan on how you can become the celebrity expert in your niche.
First, the book provided an important reminder about the fact that “People Buy People.” Sometimes, we as business owners get wrapped up in the product or service that we’re marketing and lose sight of this fact.
Another section of the book that I found valuable was the idea of putting your story behind your brand. In other words, “Why Do You Do What You Do?” If the only answers that come up are “I am doing it for the money” or “Because this is what I’ve always done,” then you may need to rethink your whole motivation behind your particular business or find a business that has real meaning to you.
The authors then cover the ever-important topic regarding your website. They provided some excellent advice on branding your site and solidifying your celebrity status in your niche.
Finally, the authors provided the “Top 10 Ways To Grow Your Business Fast”
All in all, I highly recommend that you not only get a copy of this book, but more importantly, take action on the ideas presented in it.
So what are you waiting for?
John Hinds, Orange, NJ

I just had the pleasure of hearing Nick Nanton speak to a group of entrepreneurs in New Jersey and I can tell you that he really gets it. All budding entrepreneurs should read this book and get a jump start on their competition.
