Look Who’s Talking About Circle®Brands!

Susan Murphy | President, Circle®Brands“When venturing into uncharted territory, like Circle®Brands has boldly done by upending the traditional approach to branding, it’s nice to know we’re not alone. I’d like to share some thoughtful comments and words of encouragement from a variety of esteemed colleagues. We value their support, as it can get lonesome out here when you’re a category of one.” ~Susan Murphy, President, Circle®Brands

Doug Hall | Founder & CEO Eureka! Ranch

Susan,  WOW Very – Very – Very Cool! This is a DRAMATIC Difference!

1. I’d like to understand your pricing model and terms (do due diligence)

2. I’d like to get your stuff “loaded” into the marketplace

3. I’d like to explain the B to B world that MEP “owns.”

I think there’s an opportunity for you in that space.

Sandra SellaniSusan, Your concept is AMAZING and truly unique. So many people struggle with developing brands. I know there are people out there that need you.

I would be very interested in learning about the process of marketing through closed deal. If I know of someone who can use your service, I will definitely send them your way.

Carol FrankHi Susan:

I am impressed with your forward thinking and creativity.  I think you may have hit on something here as I think you will see more people than ever trying to “break out and break away.”

I would be available Wednesday or Friday between 9:30 and 11:30 MST for a phone visit, if that fits with your schedule. If not, it will have to be one day next week.

Keith GranetDear Susan:

I love your thinking!  At this point we are in the works with a fairly large company that will be licensing Carolyne Roehm’s name and designs, thus we will not have a need for 1-800-IN-BLOOM although I love the idea. Maybe some one else will fit the bill in the future.

Congratulations on your company it seems extremely innovative. Thank you for your patience and for contacting me.

Graeme ThickinsThanks for the email, Susan.

I love it!  You obviously know what you’re
doing with naming!!!

You have a great foundation here, to do
some really solid marketing of your business.

Love the “service” thing…fantastic positioning
or differentiation in this market.

Congratulations — you’re way ahead of most
startups!  🙂  And certainly most purveyors
of flowers….

best regards,

Opportunity Knocks NOW! This Is The Best Time To Start A Business!

Robert Kiyosaki

In a recent Time Magazine “10 Questions”  author Robert Kiyosaki had an inspiring answer to this question: Are there opportunities to create new companies in this turbulent economy?

“This is the best time. When times are bad is when the real entrepreneurs emerge. Entrepreneurs don’t  really care it the market’s up or down. They’re creating better products and better processes. So when somebody says, ‘Oh, there’s less opportunity now,’ it’s because they’re losers.” ~Robert Kiyosaki, author “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” and his new book, “Conspiracy of the Rich.”
