Maybe you’re a small business owner, a blogger or you’re seeking to change careers and get more out of life.
But, man do you have some wild eyed dreams.
This appetite for success is oh so fine and dandy, but how are you going to make “it” happen?
How will you take your small business to the next level?
What is the key to crafting that distinctive brand?
How will you make big changes and finally leave your thankless job behind?
My Changes Address The Topics Above, And More …
In fact, this message is for solopreneurs, small business owners, career changers and misfits.
It’s for business owners wanting to use the power of branding to grow.
AND it’s for good citizens who feel stuck and are ready to make big things happen.
If you’re feeling stagnant and want to move your business to the next level, it’s all about creating an online presence that truly rocks. And this isn’t just about a cool looking website. No. There’s way more and I see it as my job to lay it all out, thus the big changes.
So, let me explain …
1. A New Focus Here (Site A).
I’m all for jumping in and doing, but if you have grand aspirations, you need a plan built with a cohesive branding strategy, including content, marketing, and design.
And now I want to help you. That’s right, I’ll soon be offering services built on what I’ve been doing for years – branding, especially visual branding and design. Through consulting, training and downloadable content, I’ll use a ground-up approach built to help you discover and clarify your brand (through design and story), and find the right customers for your business.
But why am I changing?
For two years I’ve been blogging on a variety of topics, and the focus has really been on two areas: Branding and Breaking Out. It’s been a fairly happy marriage, but I’ve come to the realization that it’s time for a separation. Breaking up is hard to do, but this split is necessary.
So, starting this fall, this site will be laser-focused on helping businesses find the right customers through branding done right. Content, design and strategy built to help small businesses grow. It’s what I currently do at McBreen Design, but more, way more. In fact, I’ll soon be announcing the launch date of my new eBook, and this, my friends, will drive all.
But I do need your help. In the comments below I would love to know what you think and what you need:
Why? Your feedback will help me create the best services possible.
2. The Other Why (Site B).
Well, that’s about a brand new site I’m working on built to address a different set of topics.
Quite a bit of my original content was based on the topic of Fear – getting past it and breaking out. While I love, LOVE writing about this topic, it’s no longer a good fit here, so I’m building a new house centered on busting a move.
Are you of a certain age with an itch to make big changes?
Do you feel like a social misfit, ready to break the shackles that have bound you for so long?
Is there a fire burning deep within, just waiting to get out?
If so, you might be interested in this new site. It will be a place for late bloomers, outsiders and misfits. I’m quite passionate about it and will be announcing more this fall. If you are the least bit interested, sign up below. You’ll be reading more about it in the coming months.
In fact, consider subscribing below and sending me an email on what you are struggling with or what you would like to see more of here. Tell me about your online aspirations. What do you need to get there? These two sites will be built to help you and your business in very different ways.
I run McBreen Design. A Seattle branding and design firm. I help small companies and organizations bring their vision to life with brand strategy, content marketing, website design, and print. Get in touch and let me know what I can do to help.
