David: “The idea of personal brand. You say that everybody has a personal brand whether you like it or not. Would love to just get your thoughts on why you're so passionate about that and why you're out to help people with that”

Lindsay: “Guaranteed, whether it's LinkedIn or Facebook or Instagram, pick a random person maybe you went to highschool with or you went to college with. You kind of have an idea of who they are. "Oh that's the person who's really negative" or "He always talks about that he loves pizza"
