What worked for our parent's generation isn't cutting it. Small companies are taking the world by storm and it's not their pocketbooks putting them on the map -it's branding!We can't relate to an inanimate object like a business, but we can abso-freaking-lutely relate to Brands.Businesses sell products to customers.

Why wouldn’t you want your idea to go as far as it can?
