Our Own Brand’s Renaissance
We’ve undergone a bit of a brand renaissance as of late. I’m gonna talk a bit about that in this post, but first…
I hate yoga.
Of course, that implies I do yoga. And I do. Sometimes, I do yoga. There, I said it. Feel free to confiscate one of my man cards. Most of the time, I’m cool with yoga. It actually relaxes me. And therein lies the problem. There’s nothing worse than being calm and relaxed when one’s super jazzed about typing on something they’re especially geeked about.
But for you, the people, I shall power through!
Editor’s note: There was gonna be a pic of Dave, all relaxed and stuff after yoga, in this spot. But…he looked a little too relaxed.
The Renaissance of Mayniax Branding
When we started our sort-of humble branding biz in July of 2014, it was because we were sick of seeing entrepreneurs needlessly struggle, when we knew all they needed was a little brand strategy help to set them on the path to success. We wanted to help them live the lives they’ve dreamed of since starting their entrepreneurial enterprises. But man, you guys have crazy dreams!
Towards the end of 2015, we started seeing just how wonderful the entrepreneurs we deal with really are. We saw they had fantastic dreams! Benevolent dreams! These weren’t those evil rat-bastards we hear about, sitting in ivory towers trying to squeeze every last penny out of us. These are people who want to change the world for the better! These are people with dreams of housing the homeless, preparing high school kids for careers, and helping us all live healthier lives. And we started realizing, it’s not just about helping these people live their dreams. It’s about helping these people change the world! And it’s about helping them change a world that could do a helluva lot better than it’s doing now.
The Mayniax Branding Mission Statement(s)
Our old mission statement read, “Our job is giving gutsy business owners and entrepreneurs a shot at better lives, and we brand the hell out of their businesses to make that happen.”
But with our newfound understanding of just how crazy you guys are, that wasn’t good enough. So, here’s the new one, “The world is broken. And we believe entrepreneurs are the only ones who can fix it. But they’ll never get that chance if no one cares about their brands. So, with a little bit o’ nuttiness, a little bit o’ research, and a lotta bit o’ guts, it’s our job to make people care.”
And don’t judge us because we haven’t updated the site, just yet.
The New Culture of Mayniax Branding
If you’ve been paying attention to some of our other blog posts, or just know a little something about branding, you may be wondering how this will impact our culture. The short answer is, “It won’t.” The long answer is that we’re even more sure we’re doing the right thing for our clients, as well as ourselves. We’re even more passionate. We’re even more gutsy. And yes, we’re even a whole lot more caffeinated!
We aren’t, however, planning on writing anymore blogs after yoga.
Stay gutsy, gang!
