Happy birthday to The Big Guy!
•
He's taking a break today, which is why you haven't seen any Mayniax Monday video announcements, but he'll be back tomorrow.
•
And, of course, he'll have another Mayniax Monday video next Monday!
•
Because that only makes sense 😜
•
Stay gutsy, gang!

We can't help but think Sozo Japanese Grill is advertising that they're really average whenever we see this sign 😳
•
What do you think? 🤔

Stay gutsy, gang!

We haven't talked much about the importance of fitness for entrepreneurs, recently 😱
•
First, everyone should strive to be fit, but there are a couple layers of added importance for entrepreneurs. On top of staying fit for your current and future friends and families - not to mention yourselves - you also need to stay fit for your community, which is composed of your teams and clients.
•
Exercise not only helps your muscular and cardio health, but it also helps your brain health. And every top-performing entrepreneur needs the healthiest brain they can get.
•
So, entrepreneurs, let's make sure we stay fit!
•
And feel free to judge The Big Guy's hair 😜
•
Stay gutsy, gang!

And now, for the Friday post you've all been waiting for, here's The Big Guy reminding all you gutsy entrepreneurs to take some time for yourselves this weekend.
•
Because it's good for brains, and you want yours good and healthy for when the zombie apocalypse comes to town 😳
•
Okay, somebody else take the phone, please 😜
•
Stay gutsy, gang!

First, how did we not know about this quote from Honest Abe? 😱
•
Second, everyone talks patience. We talk patience. But when any of us talk patience, it doesn't mean you should do 40 hours a week of work, eat Doritos on the weekend, and it'll pay off one day - we mean you've gotta work your asses off, and know the reward for all that hard work isn't gonna come overnight!
•
Yup, you've gotta hustle. And if you want to be hugely successful, there's no such thing as a 40-hour work week. It takes years of more work than that to make it big.
•
And make no mistake, we want everyone in the world to know who Mayniax Branding is - because the more people who know who we are, the more people we can help.
•
But we know that takes a long time, and a lot more hours than the average person is willing to dedicate.
•
Fortunately, just like you, Dave's an entrepreneur. And just like you, he's hustling.
•
Keep up the good fight, entrepreneurs! The world needs you! And for a few years, it's gonna need more than you think you can give. Deal with it, and give it anyway. Because if you hustle knowing massive success will come with patience, you'll ultimately have the lives you've always wanted.
•
Or you can work at a desk for 40 hours per week and eat Doritos all weekend. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
•
Or maybe there is 😏
•
Stay gutsy, gang!

Ann Arbor's filled with intelligent people. In fact, Ann Arbor tends to rank number one in most educated cities in the United States! 🎉
•
So then, why are there only two well-known brands based here? 😳
•
Domino's Pizza and the University of Michigan are the only nationally recognized - and by that we mean everyone's heard of them - brands from Ann Arbor.
•
So, if you live in Ann Arbor, and you're trying to start a pizza franchise, maybe studying Domino's is a good idea. But what if you're trying to start a marketing firm? Or a cleaning company? Or a fashion line?
•
Our recommendation would be to find the best brands, in those respective categories, in the world. If you study them, and devise strategies to beat them, then - provided you have the money - you'll beat any and all local competitors, because they don't have strong brands to begin with.
•
But what if no one in your industry has a powerful brand? Well, check Interbrand's annual best 100 brands list. If no one in your industry shows up there, then no one in your industry has a strong brand.
•
If that's the case - that no one in your industry shows up on that list - go back to the Interbrand 100 and study those brands. Find out how they managed to get to the top in their respective industries - and then steal the plans for yourself.
•
Because again, even if you just want to stay local, you'll beat your competitors if you devise strategies to beat the best 👍
•
And drink mad amounts of caffeine ☕️🍵
•
And celebrate Taco Tuesday 🌮
•
Okay, that last one might just be us 😜
•
Stay gutsy, gang!

Before Dave and Vanessa started Mayniax Branding, they were kind of all over the map. They actually had a couple jobs taking pics of people for various reasons - business cards, websites, etc. And because of that, they needed to practice 📷
•
This Throwback Thursday pic, from 2011, is one of the very few shots of Vanessa where she didn't look annoyed that Dave was holding the camera 😜

Stay gutsy, gang!

Oh Dave 😶
•
The Big Guy made sure not to schedule any happy fun time chats for today, in case there were any last-minute things that had to be done for tonight's Cultivating Gutsy Entrepreneurs event - See our previous pic for that info 👀
•
So he's getting a little of that ironed out while also prepping graphics for his May 18th workshop 😱
•
And he hasn't showered yet. Because details 🤢

Stay gutsy, gang!

Today's the day! Have you signed up? 🤔
•
If not, sign up for this event by going to the Cultivating Gutsy Entrepreneurs page on Meetup! 🎉
•
In our first meeting, we'll be talking about what entrepreneurship needs all of us feel aren't being met in the Ypsi / Arbor area. And then we'll be figuring out what can be done to meet them.
•
This first Cultivating Gutsy Entrepreneurs meeting is free to attend, but there will be a charge for future ones, as we find out the best ways to add value to all our lives.
•
Oh, and you'll need to pay for coffee and / or beer. If you like that sort of thing.
-----------------
About Cultivating Gutsy Entrepreneurs
•
This one goes out to all the Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti area entrepreneurs, start-up founders, local business owners, and CEOs: we want you here!
•
My name's Dave Murray, and I've been fighting for the entrepreneurship cause for the past four years because I believe you're the keys to a happier world - but I don't see much that is legitimately helping many of us in the area. This group's objective is to fix that.
•
What this group doesn't aim to be is a networking / referral group. We'll get to know each other - that'll just naturally happen. But I want this to turn into a larger-than-life entrepreneurial community, and bringing in the latest sales rep for *insert company name here* isn't conducive to that.
•
So if that sounds good, join me at Cultivate Coffee & TapHouse - which itself is run by some pretty awesome business owners - as we work to make you area entrepreneurs', start-up founders', local business owners', and CEOs' lives a whole helluva lot better.
•
So you can make our world a little happier.
•
Stay gutsy, gang!
