Your Brand is not Your Logo

Let me say this again – Your brand is NOT your logo. This is a common misconception and it is because the logo is typically what you think of first when you think about a brand. However, branding is so much deeper than just the surface logo. Personal branding is first-and-foremost about self-discovery. If you do not know who you are, what you do, why you do it – then you will never have a viable brand. Consistency is key, but if you don’t know what your base is, then your brand… Read More

Merging Science Principles & Business

I am a nerd. There. I said it. With that – I want to discuss one of the evolutions behind my way of thinking. I see the world as connected. And not just the world, but the entire universe.

2020 has been a year of growth for me. An entire year. Usually I would fall off the bandwagon here and there with long gaps of sinking into a depression. This year has been life-altering and not just because of COVID although that has played a part.
