Can Your Business Pull Off a Publicity Stunt? Take This Quiz

Can Your Business Pull Off a Publicity Stunt? Take This Quiz

Over the past few years, we’ve seen large brands like IHOP and Burger King pull publicity stunts that gained a lot of attention. But can those same tactics work for smaller brands?

Entrepreneur and author Judge Graham believes they can. He said in a phone interview with Small Business Trends, “Smaller brands have got to be bigger and bolder and take riskier opportunities in order to get to that next level.”

Are You Prepared for a Publicity Stunt?

While there are certainly benefits to quickly gaining publicity for your business, there are still risks involved. So you need to be ready before taking that leap. Here’s what you should ask yourself before getting started.

Are You Ready to Grow Your Business?

Borderless Voice Turns Personal Narrative into a Competitive Advantage

Borderless Voice Turns Inspiration into a Strategic Advantage

Inspiration can come from many places. But how you see yourself and your surroundings can turn that inspiration into a strategic advantage.

Gbenga Ogunjimi shows how to develop that advantage with his book, Borderless Voice: The Power of Telling Your Story and Defining Your Identity. It is a very small book that conveys how believing in your dreams connects to your objectives.

Ogunjimi offers a background in social entrepreneurship, using identity strategy and storytelling to empower immigrant and minority leaders.

What Is Borderless Voice About?

Ogunjimi believes that people can rise beyond their background to achieve their goals when they imagine the right narrative. Ogunjimi defines a framework for that narrative, called Borderless Voice.  That voice leads to better entrepreneurial options and leadership choices.

Ogunjimi deftly explains how as he teaches what people should look for. When he explains the importance of storytelling, he highlights why it is an asset for a career.

“Storytelling is your strongest asset … Starting with your story is an incredible way to connect with a potential employer, venture capitalist, or potential partners because, while it is unique, it is likely to touch upon meaningful, universal themes. Such moments often resonate with others, helping you to connect.”

This approach encourages entrepreneurs to explore how to sell themselves through sharing their stories.

The book speaks from the perspective of immigrants and minorities seeking a positive self-narrative. This approach is particularly valuable for those who are transitioning from an employment to entrepreneurial environment, all while being a newcomer to a city or country. Peppered with Ogumjimi’s own experiences, the book advocates auditing how one’s self-narrative by identifying one’s psychological borders and self paradigms about the world.

What I Liked about Borderless Voice

I liked that Ogunjimi sought to step beyond a number of coachi
