    Andrea Pereira started Rocket Science Branding in 2019 to help organizations cultivate their communities through branded merchandise. Having observed many organizations purchasing swag because that's what their competitors did, selecting the wrong items because it's what was trending, or simply struggling to communicate their ethos to their community, Andrea decided it was time to step in and step up. 


    Her team takes a true marketing approach to understand an organization's goals, people, and purpose and then translates this into the tangible touchpoints to develop their community and brand love. A team of marketers for marketers, the Rocket Science Branding folks thrive on telling a brand's story through strategic ideas and creative design to create lasting engagement. 

     

    In this episode, we discuss:

    ·     How Andrea turned an interest in connection into a brand marketing company.

    ·     Why having a set brand – colors, words, logo – is important for new customers and returning ones.

    ·     Creating a community with your brand.

    ·     How to think of branded products as a gift to employees or customers so you don’t purchase the wrong product.

    I hope you will find this episode as exciting and informative as I have. Andrea knows it’s better to purchase no swag than to purchase the wrong swag.

    ·     How to study the numbers of buying and selling a business so you know what you’re getting into.

    ·     The importance of helping businesses give back to their communities and employees.

    Ashley Micciche is the CEO at True North Retirement Advisors. She helps business owners exit their business and retire with financial security, letting them focus on running their business while she plans the exit.

    Ashley is a second-generation family business owner, so she understands the plight of the day-to-day business owner trying to do everything. Her first career plan was to be a river raft guide, but then she went to business school and discovered helping people retire is where she wanted to be.

    ·     How exit planning looks different for every business and business owner

    ·     Starting to think about exiting your business even 10 years before you want to

    ·     Working with an advisor to take care of all the details is important in order to keep running your business

    ·     Building a team to work on the exit with you- not leaving it all up to one advisor

    Denise Logan is the founder and speaker at Chase What Matters. She has a background as a lawyer, social worker, and business owner. She knows that to business owners, selling a business is more than a transaction. To them, it is an emotionally fraught period of transition, filled with unexpected highs and lows, with no clear vision of what waits at the end for them and their family.

    She has provided advanced training to advisors employed by some of the world’s largest financial institutions, law firms and accounting firms, helping their clients successfully transition their businesses to new owners. And she is the author of The Seller’s Journey.

    In this episode, we discuss:

    ·     Denise’s start in law and what she learned about opening her own firm and exiting the businesses the wrong way

    ·     When to start thinking of developing an exit strategy and how to develop a timeline

    ·     Why knowing how to talk to a business broker can get you what you want when exiting a business, such as the wealth from the sale

    ·     How to make the journey to retiring a happy one

    I hope you will find this episode as exciting and informative as I have. Denise knows exactly how to exit a business the right way by experiencing what not to do herself.

    Jessica Starks is the President of Transworld Business Advisors of Lansing. Starks received her Bachelor’s degree from Grand Valley State University in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting and Finance. 

    Before starting her own business, she gained experience at a public accounting firm, sales with a payroll company, followed by 10 years in business banking. As her banking career advanced, she was financing buyers acquiring businesses. 

    Jessica realized she wanted to help business owners exit their business. She found that baby boomers did not know where to turn when wanting to retire. Although she thought of mostly baby boomers, she realized that other business owners needed to exit their business as well. She wanted to give them an outlet to sell what they have worked so hard to create while leaving a legacy.

    In this episode, we discuss:

    ·     The process of business brokerage and the emotional toll it can take on everyone

    ·     How deals take practice- don’t expect to make a sale on your first prospect

    ·     Meeting with a business owner early in your selling process will eliminate stressful situations in a transition

    I hope you will find this episode as exciting and informative as I have. Jessica is very knowledgeable of her business and the ins and outs of business brokerage.

    Andy Cagnetta is the CEO of Transworld Business Advisors. He graduated from Lehigh University in 1987 with a BS Business & Economics. He moved to Florida in search of buying his own business, when Transworld hired him as an agent. Since then he’s risen up to become a top performer.

    Andy is a recognized speaker and trainer in the subject of business sales, valuation and negotiations. He has taught his self-authored negotiations class to associations, construction companies, media sales teams, government agencies, high school & university students.

    He has received numerous awards in community and leadership, and volunteers with many local humanitarian organizations.

    In this episode, we discuss:

    ·     How Andy started his entrepreneurial dream as a kid with a coffee and pastry stand during the gas crisis

    ·     How Andy bought Transworld as a small business brokerage office to franchising it to offices all over the country

    ·     Why being involved in your community from early on will improve your business knowledge and performance in the future

    ·     Why anyone looking to get into business or sell their business should work with a business broker to help smooth the process

    I hope you will find this episode as exciting and informative as I have. Andy has the best information on business brokerage and how to succeed in your own business.

    Please let me know your thoughts!

    The world is constantly changing, and so is the world of business. In “Building Better Businesses”, me and a number of experts will explain why networking is important, why every step is about learning, and how a good business owner helps their community. Take it from me, someone who tried one more time, that there is always a way to get there.
