episode #689 – February 22, 2022
GUEST: DP Knudten

What is a non-fiction brand? It is a brand that is true and authentic in its reflection of a company. To build your non-fiction brand, my guest DP Knudten you need to start with a hard look in the mirror.
As a business owner you need to go beyond the surface to discover exactly who you are, what you do, and how you do it. Those three things right there which comprise your brand proposition are absolutely fundamental because that’s what makes you different than someone who does the exact same thing across the street.
