Beyond the Logo
Tuesday, April 10, 2018
It’s time for the branding conversation to move past logos and catchy taglines. A brand is the unique voice used to communicate to the community. It’s how you look, it’s how you talk, it’s how you smell, it’s the public face and the private ethos. It’s your identity. Your brand is your secret weapon. It can differentiate your business in a cluttered market, or it can drag you into the fog of being just like everybody else.
Built Not Born
Tuesday, March 13, 2018
As an entrepreneur it's easy to look at successful brands and get discouraged. Discouraged because it seems like they just appeared out of nowhere... they must have known something you don't know... they must have caught some lucky break... they must have had a silver bullet that you don't possess. The real story is often far less glamorous. It's a story of hard work, risk, fear, struggle, occasional success, failure, community, crisis, grace, and yes... maybe a little bit of luck. The point is that business aren't just born. They are built.
Brave Beginnings
Tuesday, January 30, 2018
What if we could see each new beginning as the grace to start again… every month, every day, every minute? What shift in mindset is required to approach life and business with this new optimism? It seems subtle… it’s not easy... but it’s possible… it’s a choice that people make every day. It’s choosing bravery over the alternative. Bravery over blame. Bravery over frustration. Bravery over laziness. Bravery over disappointment. Bravery over circumstance.
