Why 9 Year-Olds Are Better Than You at Executive Branding
As a person who specializes in branding, I can't help but get frustrated when I see a talented executive failing miserably with their brand. While the most common mistake is weak or non-existent messaging, the next most common mistake is over-complicated messaging. Are you guilty?
