What’s the last book you read and what did you think?
Building a StoryBrand by Donald Miller. We all love a great story, getting in there with the hero and pulling for her to win. Great brands do the same thing: they help the customer become the hero of his own story. The company serves as the guide (like Yoda or Aslan or a fairy godmother) who’s going to help the hero get to their goal. When our client feels like she’s Cinderella showing up at the ball in a golden carriage, that’s when our marketing efforts are effective!
What’s your favorite travel destination, or where would you like to go?
A few years ago, Lisa and I were able to spend a couple weeks in Israel. The drama and the weight of history, religion and culture in one tiny slice of land was inspiring. We were amazed at the lush beauty of Galilee, the other-worldliness of the Dead Sea, and the tragic isolation of Masada. We fell in love with Jerusalem, not just for the significant events that have happened there, but for the modern eclectic ‘coolness’ of the city itself. As a place, the ongoing struggles for Israel make it one of the most intriguing places on the planet.
