Remember how Kim Kardashian refused to take her future ex-husband's last name because of its potential to screw up her "brand"? Even her media-whore mother thought she could make a go of it, taking the name "Humphries" and changing "K-Dash" into "Hump" to go with her big ol' ass. Unfortunately, Kris Jenner's suggestion fell flat. The marriage still ended in shambles and was splashed all over the media the same day that poor Jessica Simpson announced her pregnancy and updated her brand to "mommy." What a mess! Get some real professional advice about your own brand when Mark E. Sackett, a San Francisco businessman, presents "The Art of Active Networking," a workshop designed to help folks build stronger business relationships and use social media in smarter ways.
