Defining Your Brand Vision

Brand vision is intention. It can be a single-minded intent, or a group of goals and objectives — typically no more than one, two or three. Steve Jobs wanted this, “Put a ding in the universe.” Henry Ford wanted to make cars that ordinary Americans could afford. (Consider that in Henry’s era, people were driving the equivalent of $200,000 Teslas while everyone else was riding a horse.) Tesla Motor’s vision is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy. And Elon Musk’s newest v...

Margaret Mead by the numbers

The life of anthropologist Margaret Mead (1901-1978) spanned decades, continents, and academic conversations.
