Hi there my fellow Beginner Brand Builders! Welcome to The Written Bridge where we talk about all things branding. I’m Vanessa, CEO of The Written Bridge and your "Brand Investigator". Basically your guinea pig, ha! I’ll be reviewing books, processes, methods, products, tools, and algorithms that will help you build your brand from the ground up.
First things first: go ahead and FREAK OUT! You are attempting to change the world with a vision that’s been running around in your heart forever! It takes a few moments of terror to get things going but, without being SCARED OUT OF YOUR MIND you wouldn’t have the urge to JUMP, and it makes the jump so much more worth it. I’m here to help you land after that epic jump. If this isn’t your first dream and you’re on the third, congratulations! You’re still in the right place. The basics of brand building haven’t changed and mastering the basics is what makes you an expert.
I AM NOT AN EXPERT! I’m just a huge dreamer, like you, working my butt off, literally, to build The Written Bridge into a successful brand for businesses looking for creative content. So why not follow an expert instead of following me? Because I’m right there IN THE TRENCHES WITH YOU! I know what it is to be lost, picking a logo, building a website, and being overwhelmed in deciding what social media platform to use. The list goes on. I’m here to tell you what I tried, what worked and what didn’t. I’m the “me” I wish I had when I began building my brand. I’d like to be that for you.
I AM A WRITER! It took me years to say this out loud, to declare it to myself while staring at my reflection in the mirror. When I began to introduce myself to others as a writer, my insides felt like Jello even though my smile was confident. I’m the dork who tries to memorize the word of the day and who is ALWAYS reading 4 books at a time. I may not be an expert at brand building, yet, but I do know WRITING! I’m confident in what The Written Bridge can do for your business just as after years of learning the craft of writing, I can confidently write this article.
Ok, having said all that, I’d like to welcome you to the best resource you could ever have in building your brand; an HONEST FRIEND. I’ll hold your hand after you’ve made a mistake, I’ll hold your hair back when you throw up from nervousness the night before your brand launch, and I’ll even give you the brutal feedback you need. More importantly, I’ll be here. I’ll be the constant reminder that you’re worthy of your vision, that your dreams aren’t too wild, and that you’re always one day away from success but never one day short of living a miracle.
SO TUNE IN! For knowledge, instruction, and maybe just for a laugh, I’m here. The Written Bridge will be here. In your journey you'll scroll through thousands of videos and blogs but, I hope this is the one you can feel the most motivated! We can do this my fellow Beginner Brand Builders. We can go from dreamland to a thriving business!
