THE BRAND CONSULTANT FOR FIERCELY INDEPENDENT SOLO & SMALL OPS ENTREPRENEURS SEEKING MORE PROFIT & FREEDOMLEARN MORE
As long as I can remember, I've been a seeker of counterintuitive ideas. I wanted all the knowledge, wisdom and truth to change the way people thought and behaved for the better.
My drive and creativity lead to early career success. However, my unconventional strategies inevitably ended up butting heads with the "norm". Any time I "colored outside-the-lines" I was made to feel I was rocking the boat in a bad way.
After years of exploring different roles, I chose to step outside the box & leap into entrepreneurship. I quickly found myself overwhelmed, frustrated, and burned out. And not long after that I was living out of a friend’s grandmother’s trailer home, loaded with financial debt, and talking the repo-man out of towing my car on New Year’s Eve (I know, it doesn't sound real).
The next morning, at the ATM, I typed in my pin code and looked at the receipt in my hand...I had $197 dollars and 20 some cents left to my name and had to make a change ASAP.
As I searched to find the answer, I stumbled upon a quote by Michelangelo that read, "I saw the angel in the marble and I carved until I set him free”. I realized my business was becoming just another job. I hadn't carved it into the business I wanted and began creating my own methodology. By the time I was done, I had developed an entire brand building business system.
As I took myself through it, I landed writing, speaking, and consulting gigs. I helped my wife leave her day job to start her dream job while building an ecosystem of partners who continue to grow together. The system and strategies worked for getting into major publications, Fortune 500 companies, major conferences and more.
Continuing to finalize the process, I recognized more gaps in the market as other people started asking me for help with their businesses. So I started a third company, Emerge Brand Consulting.
Listed below are some of the places you may have seen me…
Authenticity is the fearless expression of who you are; a "bold brand blueprint".
As much as business is driven by success, you're looking for more than just beating the competition and accepting any and every customer.
Uniquely standing for something and attracting ideal customers is more important. Forging a uniquely aligned and single focused idea into your story, culture, customer experience, and other key "touchpoints" forms a distinct competitive advantage.
Confidently defining a purpose, deciding on distinct target markets and differentiating your product is what positions you to create the inspiration, income, and influence you're seeking.
Autonomy is the freedom to live in the context of your deepest desires; the "bold brand quest".
You want to increase consistent, predictable revenue to live your vision, however, it's a crowded and very noisy market. Getting and holding attention is hard and gaining the traction you need to lead change can be a grind.
It's easy to get overwhelmed when you're focused on producing more rather than consistently producing the right content, culture, campaigns & conversions.
Courageously prioritizing your most important goals and aligning brand building strategies to achieve them will not only prevent you from spending excess resources, but it will create momentum by influencing audience actions and nurturing customer growth.
Authority is the fulfillment of collaboratively & compassionately building a better world; the "bold brand breakthrough".
Your heart yearns for something bigger than just brand value. But getting publicity, managing marketing efforts, & building a good team profitably can be frustrating.
Inconsistent visibility, sales volume and low customer lifetime value can kill any dream of global impact. Better reach, recognition, revenue and retention can help forge the future you want.
Consciously creating customer connections using scalable & sustainable systems will not only help you grow profits, but also create positive industry impact and social value; all in support of a better tomorrow.
