Working on branding yourself when building your Network Marketing business is of the highest importance as I will explain.
Contrary to popular belief becoming a representative for your Network Marketing company does not make you a business owner. It makes you a glorified sales representative for the company. If the company shuts the doors, you would have no brand status as what you were doing was promoting the company and not yourself.
