    Be An Actionable Entrepreneur | with Jacob Hurrell-Zitelman | Ep. #057

    Be An Actionable Entrepreneur | with Jacob Hurrell-Zitelman | Ep. #057

    Let me just say that running a business is hard, and running a successful business is even harder.

    Now, running a successful business at age 23…I’ll tell ya, that takes thick skin and the drive to be an actionable entrepreneur.

    In other words a “get stuff done” mindset.

    Today my guest is Jacob Hurrell-Zitelman, the 23 year old founder of Quick Sip Coffee and the CEO of getting stuff done.

    Jacob and I talk about how he went from selling homemade cold brew coffee from his backpack at school, to building a brand and having bottles fly off the shelves of major grocery chains like H-E-B and Central Market, and the many lessons he’s learning along the way.

    I had a great time talking with Jacob and I can’t wait to share this episode with you!

    Trademarks Are Not An Option | Ep. #056

    Trademarks Are Not An Option | Ep. #056

    Your brand needs protection.

    Let me say it again: Your brand needs protection.

    In this highly open and viral world we live in, it’s no surprise that good business ideas and products are becoming easier to use as inspiration, or just flat out stolen, by new and established brands. All it takes is a Google search and endless examples of brand names, logos, and products will be there for the taking.

    So, how can you protect your brand from thieves and copycats?

    Trademarks.

    A trademark gives you nationwide exclusivity for your branding–your name, your logo, your tag line. Your brand's identity is not officially yours unless you register the trademark. So you must understand that trademarks are not an option; they are essential.

    So, how do you get a trademark?

    Today I have expert trademark attorney Tom Ladegaard on the show to tell you all about it!

    Spark Some Joy In Your Life! | Ep. #055

    Spark Some Joy In Your Life! | Ep. #055

    I'm a big believer in the powers of joy.

    So much so, in fact, that many people refer to me as, “Joy Beast.”  Pretty cool, huh?

    And I'm not just talking about joy in your brand or business, I'm talking about joy in life.

    Because I’ll tell ya, authentic joy is communicable. It spreads like a wildfire, transferring from one joyful individual to another. So something as seemingly modest as a smile, or a thank you, can be enough to give someone joy, which will allow them to spread their joy to those they come into contact with as well. See where I'm going now?

    One of the fastest paths to a happier world is to spark some joy in your life and in the lives of those around you. Do it intentionally and do it authentically.

    So go check out the episode, subscribe, and go out and spark some joy!

    What's In A Name? | Ep. #054

    What's In A Name? | Ep. #054

    Naming a brand or a new product can be one of the hardest choices you make for a business because it's a choice that has everlasting impact.

    In fact, one of the most common questions I get asked is:

    “Ed, how do I come up with the perfect name?”

    Well, that’s tough because the perfect name will vary from brand to brand, but there are a few things a name must be:

    1. A name must be able to classify the uniqueness of the brand or of the product.
    2. The name must be recognizable.
    3. A name must be personal. Not only to you, but to your customer as well.

    And each one of these individual musts must be approached with a ton of consideration.

    So … what’s in name?

    A lot more than you think.

    Come along as I break it all down on the latest episode of Howie Grow A Brand!

    Nostalgia In Marketing | Ep. #053

    Nostalgia In Marketing | Ep. #053

    Being new is a powerful claim for a brand.

    It’s good to be cutting edge with a fresh approach. But let me tell ya about an even more powerful claim: the past.

    Often, we look back at the stepping stones of our lives with a wistful remembrance. We long for the good old days, when things were simpler, and joy was abundant. If a brand has been present for those moments, it has a great opportunity…

    Nostalgia.

    Nostalgia in marketing works. When a brand associates itself with the meaningful moments in its customers lives, it establishes a relationship that goes beyond a financial interaction. There’s an entire generation that will never forget Mikey liking his bowl of Life® cereal or Peter coming home for Christmas and brewing a hot pot of Folgers® Coffee for his parents. These products aren't just known, they are felt. So what relationship have you established with your customers?

    If your brand has been around a while, you need to be taking advantage of nostalgia.

    And if you are a new brand, ya better be working hard to create it. 

    Let’s get into it!

    Pivot or Rivet? | Ep. #052

    Pivot: a strategic change in direction
    Rivet: a nearly unmovable fastener

    Are you considering a pivot for you brand? If so, congratulations! You’re paying attention to the ever-changing environment around you. Sometimes, to survive, we must adapt. But wait, before you make that move …
     
    Listen to this podcast.
     
    There are many things to plan when pivoting and too often, you get so wrapped up in all that's new that you forget the most important plan of all: the plan for your customers.
     
    So you (hopefully) know where the brand is heading. That’s great, but let me tell ya, that doesn’t mean your customer does. In today’s episode, I’m going to help you understand how to look into the core of your company and find the unmovable rivets so you can set clear expectations for your customers of what's to come.
