All good things must come to an end

Hello, darlings. I hope you’ve all been well and rocking out all your amazing business ideas! As for me, I’ve been busy. Super busy. Crazy busy. Have spent the last few months working on branding for an outdoor apparel company, and designing packaging for a company that produces hair-styling tools, and having tons of fun. I’m also working on a novel, which is in the home stretch of completion. So, I haven’t had a sec to work on this blog, and my assistant has been pretty slammed too. I’ve had to make a hard decision: I’ve decided to lay this blog to bed, and this is my last post. It has been lovely to share all my knowledge with you, and I thank you for your dedicated readership. I’ll be leaving this blog up though, so that you can still reference it (though commenting will be turned off). And I’m still available for consulting on all your branding projects. If you need to reach me, you can email me through this page: http://rocketranchdesign.com/contact.php

If I have a chance, I’ll occasionally post links to articles on my Twitter page as I come across them. I post all kinds of stuff on entrepreneurship and branding there, so feel free to follow me: http://twitter.com/giasilverman

Also, I want to introduce you to my friend Juliet’s blog: http://sanderbrandculture.com/weblog/
It’s geared more at established companies who aren’t really considered “emerging” anymore, but it’s wonderfully aspirational and can help steer you in the right direction as you build your brand.

Thanks so much, and I wish you the best of luck!

As we know, businesses come in all shapes and sizes. I found this great article and interview on Etsy about doing your due diligence to make your Etsy shop a success, so you can eventually quit your day job. Practical, actionable, and inspiring. And while your business may be different, it’s definitely advice you can use. I love little success stories like these. Enjoy!

Back from a very long break

Hi everyone, 

I had taken a very long break from this blog, as my business has been doing extremely well this year, but sadly that leaves me little time to write. However, I feel strongly enough about this topic that I want to get back into the swing of things and focus on you, the up and coming fashionista. 

So, I’m back, and wishing you peace and love and success!
