The Mindset to Change Your Life’s Direction, w/ John Brontsema

My whole life was dedicated to baseball from an early time. People say, “Don’t put your identity,” or “You’re not a baseball player. That’s not your identity.” It really is though. While it’s not, it feels like it, because every decision I made, everything I was passionate about was baseball and achieving the next level.

Skyler and Jennifer talk about what it takes to be a successful business and the power of marketing and public relations in achieving business goals. They discuss the empowerment that social media has brought to people and businesses by creating easy access to the ability to market and brand their own ideas into successful businesses.

They talk about what makes public relations more of an art than a science, talking about how “perception is reality”, something you will hear Jennifer say more than once and how you have the power to paint the picture that you want others to see or believe while maintaining an authentic and really feel.

They talk about how important it is to sustain public relations and marketing beyond the startup or introduction of a new product or company and about how the new things are easy, anyone can handle the “new”, but beyond new is where you need to be creative.

They discuss branding as being what people say about you and your company when you aren’t around, and marketing being what you say about yourself.

Hear what they have to say about different public relation stunts, knowing your audience, and asking for opinions to prevent yourself from getting tunnel vision.
