What Color are You?

Who we are is a result of what we have allowed to pour into us. If we look at ourselves like the color of paint, it’s interesting what we’ll see. Let’s say your a cool blue who allows an angry red thought to cross your mind. It comes in, in the amount of a teaspoon, but you don’t dwell on it, so the pouring stops. A gallon of blue is still blue when you add a teaspoon of red, but if you continue to be angry and ignore the true color of who you are, the red will continue to pour and eventually you will no longer be blue.

Creative Branding in a Small Town

The City of Winter Garden, FL is a quaint small town with great potential for businesses to do something different than anyone else.  I had this thought on creative branding the other day, regarding the town, and I figured it would be a great opportunity to share with all of you.

One of the most noted attractions to Winter Garden is it’s biking community. The West Orange Trail passes through the town attracting bikers who ride the path to stop in and treat themselves to a break. This is a huge opportunity for a business to really take advantage of some great marketing.

Have Fun and Make an Impact

You’re just about to launch your big idea and you’re looking to make a small, yet powerful impact. Chances are you have people around you that have been involved with the development or at least have bought into your idea and have encouraged you to see it through. You’re now finding yourself filled with the same amount of excitement you had the day you learned to ride a bike. You’re itching to get out and feel like you want to ride around the world and never look back. This energy is priceless and it’s the one thing that I, myself, am addicted to and hold as the reason for my love affair with entrepreneurialism.

A Lukewarm Character is Forgettable

“A man with no enemies is a man who has no character”
Paul Newman

While on a phone call with my brother, we were talking about the Characteristics of fight or flight. We talked about two people in general at his office.

The first person flew under the radar. He didn’t make a lot noise and although he knew where he stood on his opinions, he kept them to himself in order to avoid ruffling the feathers of others.
