Show Notes by Production Assistant – Anna Nygren



  • There’s nothing wrong with leading a company culture that is a required taste
  • Yes, there is such a thing as a brand dominatrix


Call Bullshit

  • The best brands in the world are the ones that say something unique about their users
  • The essence of branding is the following:
    • What does it say about a person when they use or patronize this brand?
    • How does this brand make itself indispensable?
    • What is the specific role that this brand plays in their life?
  • You are the hero in your own story!
  • People need to feel something emotionally before making a decision
  • You’ve got a brand whether you like it or not
    • Make your North Star your ideal customer


Closing Lines

  • Your brand has to be different in a way that makes a difference in a person’s life
  • There’s no PhD required to build a brand with great essence
