By | Branding, From the Blog | No Comments

UNDERSTANDING THE BRANDING PROCESS DOESN’T HAVE TO BE COMPLEX. In fact, branding can be made simple, easy-to-understand, and easy-to-consume by entrepreneurs and small businesses. I am an advocate for clarity and understanding when it comes to any topic that I’m interested in.

“What’s your favorite color?”   This question is my response when I meet someone who asks for my business card.   Why? Because I have different colored business cards. What follows when they tell me their favorite color is me reaching into my pocket to pull out a colorful set of business cards.   At first, the person compliments the cool idea.

When do you “fire” a client?

By | Branding | 12 Comments

This article may generate excitement or it may piss some people off.  It might initiate a healthy discussion on this topic, especially if you’re a service-based professional.   Either way, my singular intention is to empower you, if you’ve ever felt “trapped” with a client or if a client has ever mistreated you.   Very early on when I started my business, I heard a mindset expert say (and, I’m paraphrasing): “You have to let…

BACKGROUND Julie A. Fleming’s business “Life at the Bar” was a successful coaching business that catered to attorneys who struggle with business development. Her biggest challenge prior to considering a re-brand was having a brand that did not match the level of sophistication of her work. Her company name was viewed as “cute,” “fun,” or “clever” and her image was too closely associated with the standard coaching industry. So, the company name and the brand…
