I came into my intake weekend in August this year with one paying client. I’d met her at a networking breakfast event and because I’d simply followed the simple steps TCI laid out, she was more than excited to work with me.
I felt like this was a good start and wanted more.
So I kept networking, began a blog, started working on more social media connections, and have been trying things out that I’d never have thought to do.
Working in a co-working space a few times a week, I asked the general manager if I could present to companies who work there. I was given the opportunity to make a 20 minute presentation with the condition that I had to incorporate the theme of ‘superheroes’.
Easy! I did a 20 minute presentation on how awesome Batman is.
I spoke about how Batman’s highest value of justice and his belief that the innocent people of Gotham city deserve justice. Putting both together creates Batman's message and brand “Justice will be served”.
The Bat symbol as a visual icon delivers a powerful and consistent message, and I linked that back to what I do with businesses as a Creative Mentor.
I help businesses share their unique stories by helping them build a compelling brand.
I do this by eliciting their values and beliefs and getting my clients clear on what their message, culture and brand is.
