Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren



  • There’s nothing wrong with leading a company culture that is a required taste
  • Yes, there is such a thing as a brand dominatrix


Call Bullshit

  • The best brands in the world are the ones that say something unique about their users
  • The essence of branding is the following:
    • What does it say about a person when they use or patronize this brand?
    • How does this brand make itself indispensable?
    • What is the specific role that this brand plays in their life?
  • You are the hero in your own story!
  • People need to feel something emotionally before making a decision
  • You’ve got a brand whether you like it or not
    • Make your North Star your ideal customer


Closing Lines

  • Your brand has to be different in a way that makes a difference in a person’s life
  • There’s no PhD required to build a brand with great essence

Ep. 80 Brand Expert and Entrepreneur Jason Hartman

Jason Hartman wants to save the middle class from Wall Street. He is a real estate and branding expert, author, podcaster, and has interviewed over 500 expert guests including Presidential candidates Dr. Ben Carson and Mark Everson


Here's a little more about Jason:


  • Jason attended his first real estate seminar at 16


  • He became a real estate agent at 19


  • He has produced over 3000 episodes of 20 different podcasts


And some things we learned from him:


  • Jason doesn’t believe in traditional networking.


  • People don’t have relationships with logos, they have relationships with people, that's why you need to brand yourself.


  • If you don't believe in something, you will fall for anything.


  • Don't worry about people who don't like and/or agree with you. That just means you're doing something right.


  • Wall Street is the modern version of organized crime.


  • Work on being #1 with a small group, not #2 for a large group.


  • He recently launched new podcasts - The Longevity Show; and a new business - The Veritas News Network
