ABOUT ME, DANA LUPȘA
I discovered the concept of personal branding in 2016, thanks to a woman who totally fascinated me.
If until that moment I had done everything regarding the development of my own brand intuitively and out of pure passion, it was then when I decided to apply for a master degree, Managing the Image Campaigns, where I discovered the patterns followed by big companies and the fact that they can also be replicated to small businesses in order to turn them into unforgettable brands.
I am a university lecturer, I have a Ph.D. in management, I am a brand developer for female entrepreneurs, I have been called the mothers’ management teacher and I am highly appreciated for encouraging women who want a successful business.
I wrote this book with the intention of sharing my experience, telling my story and encouraging you to beBranded.
Dana Anghelescu – Managing Editor, Libris Editorial Manager
Dana Lupșa is a campaigner for the assumed authenticity, which is a successful model and the book “BeBranded” follows this trend and it is a an extremely useful instrument to understand the branding concepts and strategies. But, above all, the book is a motivational one, which encourages people to start with selfintrospection in order to be able to accomplish an authentic and valuable form.
Raluca Todor – Lector universitar doctor, titular disciplină Branding
I have known Dana for over a decade and I have realised almost instantly that she is “tailored” to work with people. I admire her for many reasons, but I admire her most of all for the fact that she decides to invest her energy into praiseworthy projects that make a difference. As a branding lecturer, I think the book “BeBranded” is an excellent working instrument for the graduate students attending the personal branding courses.
WHAT WILL YOU FIND IN THIS BOOK?
IN BRIEF: A 5 STEP MODEL WHICH WILL LEAD YOU FROM PERSONAL INTROSPECTION TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR OWN MEMORABLE PERSONAL BRANDING.
90% of what a personal brand is refers to the background, the content – the ability related issues, expertise, values, passions, talents, mission, personal perspective and only 10% represents the visible part – colours, nuances, symbols, the tone of voice, messages – namely, the type of brand.
The responsibility of identifying the background is most of the times assigned to a strategist brand, but the book beBranded provides guidance and you can go through the process of clarifying your own image by yourself.
In order to gain in-depth knowledge of personal branding on your own, I recommend you to buy the book together with the online course which contains 9 video modules which perfectly complete information in the book with examples and practice.
As a bonus, you will have access to an exclusive Facebook group where I will be more than happy to answer your questions and you will have the chance to interact with other businesswomen who do business out of passion.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR REAL IMAGE, YOUR DESIRABLE IMAGE, YOUR SOCIAL IMAGE AND YOUR PUBLIC IMAGE?
IF I ASKED 5 PEOPLE WHO KNOW YOU WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE, WOULD THEY SAY THE SAME THING THAT YOU WOULD?
BE BRANDED HAS TWO CHAPTERS EXCLUSSIVELY DEVOTED TO YOUR IMAGE, WHICH WILL HELP YOU UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF IMAGE AND HOW TO ATTAIN THEM THROUGH PRACTICE.
ONCE YOU HAVE LEARNED HOW TO DECIDE WHAT YOUR IMAGE IS, WE CONTINUE WITH DISCOVERING WHAT PARTS MAY BE IMPROVED AND HOW YOU COULD DO THAT.
AT THE END OF EACH CHAPTER YOU WILL FIND A SUMMARY OF THE MOST IMPORTANT IDEAS.
DO YOU ASK YOURSELF IF YOU ARE ABLE TO APPLY ALL THE IDEAS THAT YOU FIND IN THE BOOK?
I am close to you, my dear! I was conscientious enough to explain and exemplify each idea, so by the time you finish the book, you are ready to define your mission, values, your brand archetype, the differentiation factors and many other aspects.
In other words, you will find out everything you need in the following chapters:

Gabriela Brașoveanu – Marketing Director, Communication Specialist
It is a book that encourages you to self-re-definition so that the projection in the mirror becomes fulfilled. It is a personal branding primary which provides all the instruments without any prior specialized knowledge needed. The ideas are well planned, accessible and practical. It is a book that needs notes taking while being read, with the heart open and in much joy. It is also Dana Lupşa’s special life diary and I am positive that it will plant magical seeds into the readers’ soul and mind.
I am deeply grateful to all those who supported me in writing this book and to those who contributed to my dream of releasing a guide of personal branding for women who do things out of passion: my husband, my two children, my parents, my best friends, to Daria Boeriu, an incredibly talented child – who did the graphic design, to Libris publishing house!
I am also grateful to the community of great women who inspire me and encourage me to continue my mission, that of helping women to have an authentic and memorable image, to be recognized as professionals in their area of expertise and to have a winner’s attitude.
