Founder and Chief Creative Officer of The i.d.e.a Brand Ryan Berman on Getting a Return on Courage.

Founder and Chief Creative Office of The i.d.e.a. Brand, Ryan Berman, is on the show today to share about his new book, Return On Courage. Ryan takes his research on courage and applies it to businesses to build a courage brand. We dive into what courage really means for business and how you can leverage a courage brand to drive better business. Courage requires a willingness to act on a belief with the knowledge that you have to back it up. If courage starts with knowledge, then it also starts with you knowing yourself. Ryan’s company, The i.d.e.a. Brand, is based in San Diego and they are an integrated creative agency, specializing in marketing and messaging. The whole premise of the company is based on the fact that people don’t want to be sold to, instead they want to buy into an idea. Their focus is on coming up with powerful ideas and finding ways to power those ideas in the appropriate channels and building a courage brand.
