My Brand: 15 Musings From This Marketer

nikola cline personal branding

Brandettes was launched as a vehicle to connect, to bring creatives and brands together for a dose of unexpected inspiration. The entrepreneurs, CEOs, brand leaders and innovators we’ve been blessed to feature on Brandettes, continue to inspire me both personally and professionally. In many cases, these amazing individuals have also become friends.

In the spirit of friendship, of give and take, I am launching a new series to share insights into my successes, surprises and a few random facts about my own personal brand. Here’s 15 musings from this marketer, me, Nikola Cline:


One- In 1991, this fashion show changed the course of my career. Thierry Mugler will forever be my favorite.


Two- The beauty biz is a family affair- my husband and step-son both work in this crazy, wonderful industry that feels like home.
