Defining, Creating & Growing Your Brand
Defining your brand is the basis to building and growing a business. As an entrepreneur, we’ve gotten so good at second guessing ourselves that we may as well add it to our list of skills, and this is most common when it comes to developing a brand. From a business name to color schemes, down to the voice we use, how do we decide what to do first and once we have, how do we grow that brand? Our panel of branding experts are here to discuss how to define your brand, create your brand and grow your brand! Join us at the beautiful private upstairs space of Mimi & Red Boutique in North Park with a cup of delicious coffee provided by Holsem and learn how to grow your brand no matter what stage you are at in your business.
