3 Unexpected Places to Find Branding Inspiration

Are you trying to brand your business but feeling totally lost and uninspired? Are you’re frustrated because you can’t find branding inspiration that feels like ‘you’?

Solid Gold Awesome

My point today is brief.

No matter how insane you feel. No matter how stupid your idea may seem. There are people who will be interested, genuinely care and love you for it.

Whether you’re starting a business that preserves your kid’s first poo in gold or are creating marajuana products for dogs (ps. I know someone involved in doing exactly that!), there is a market for it. 

So…Get out there. Do your thing. Don’t question your insanity. 

Just look at me:
