It's Never 'Just a Name.'

•••
Your name is what people call you, how they identify with you, and what they'll remember you by. Your name is your story. It's also something that is given to you. Interestingly enough, I didn't create the Champagne Jesse moniker... It was a product of my environment. Being a business owner at Mills Branding, and an Influencer for Lifestyle Brands like Gr[...]

31 bottles for 31 years.

•••
Last year we did 30 bottles for 30, so this year it was 31 bottles for 31 years.

As part of my training for the role, I was asked to come to New York City for 3-days, which included brand and sales education on Grand Marnier, dining experiences, and a cool stay at the Dream Hotel in Downtown Manhattan. It was enriching to not only be in the ce[...]

Personal Branding, Blend Out

•••
I recently had a conversation with Grand Marnier about my insights on how to Blend Out and my perspective on personal branding. The term "Blend Out" means to organically be someone that others aspire to know. I always think back to a quote by one of my favorite motivational speakers, Joyce Meyer, that states, "don't be a copy of someone else, instead be th[...]
