This week marked the death of three personal brands, Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, and Ed McMahon.
do you remember about each? Michael Jackson's "Thriller" was one of the
all-time chart-toppers and had a short resurgence from the movie, "13
Going on 30" with Jennifer Garner. Farrah ranked No. 1 in TV Guide's
"TV's All-Time Sexiest Women" – based on her "Charlie's Angles" series
and that 1976 swimsuit poster (12 million sold!). And Ed McMahon, the
most famous "second banana" for his long-running role on the "Tonight
Show" with Johnny Carson.
What will people remember about you? What would you like them to remember?
watching the tributes this week, it was sad to see McMahon's final
ending with financial troubles and Jackson's varied image issues.
Overall though, what do you remember most? All three were big personal brands.
