Today on the Hive Five, we have an awesome guest with a very diverse and unique background. Brittany Krystle is a personal branding expert in Los Angeles, California. Brittany grew up wanting to be a lawyer, and transition into entertainment through law. She attended Georgetown Law School, and was super bored. However, she was told that actual law practice was different. The summer jobs were paying well, but about halfway through each job, she became miserable and disinterested. Initially, she thought that she wanted to live in New York, so Brittany took and passed the bar exam in New York, getting her law license.

However, she soon moved to Los Angeles and got a job with the talent agency, ICM, representing writers and directors. Throughout this time, Brittany went through a series of jobs, working in agencies, production companies, and television companies. She soon figured out that it’s a lot about who you know in the entertainment business. After realizing that it took a lot of time to climb the corporate ladder, she became frustrated, but having heard that she couldn’t transition industries, she was going to go to business school.

Instead of business school though, Brittany's boyfriend sent her an update about Gary Vaynerchuk opening an LA office, and encouraged her to apply. She did, and so rather than business school, Brittany had the great opportunity to go work for Gary V., an opportunity that changed her life. She got to wear many different hats at VaynerMedia, giving her a totally different experience than her Hollywood career and allowing her to do something she was good at, building a personal brand. Getting to touch everything from strategy to growth optimizations to content syndication changed her perspective on branding.

Now, Brittany works as a consultant, helping entrepreneurs and others build their personal branding, and using personal branding to help grow ROI and businesses.
