What inspired you to launch your business idea?
I loved the work that I was doing in my career but couldn’t find the right environment in which to do it, or find the right synergy with those around me. Working in a variety of industries, I began to see great brands go unnoticed simply because they didn’t have the resources to afford a marketing service provider, or they had a desire to learn about marketing but just needed some coaching. I too had entrepreneurial aspirations and left the corporate sector to work with businesses that inspired me and influenced my every day life.

What problem does your business or organization solve?
There are plenty of great brands out there that offer unique and valuable products or services. The issue is that those brands don’t always know how or have the resources to reach their audience or make the most memorable impact. Modern Graffiti approaches client objectives with a goal to innovate the marketing of their products and services. We re-imagine how marketing can change how people think and drive behavior – all from a genuine, real world perspective. Time and money are often a factor for these brands as well and that’s why we offer a flexible service model that enables the ability to choose only what they need or want. No over-selling and under-delivering.

What has been your biggest challenge as an entrepreneur and how are you working to overcome it?
One of the most prominent challenges we face is managing multiple facets and ensuring that all are successful. There is a need to deliver on the outcomes we plan with clients and ensure that the Modern Graffiti brand is moving forward and growing as well. We are working to overcome it by staying committed and focused on achieving client objectives. Doing so serves as marketing for the business. Clients have and continue to refer others they know so it has become a win-win.

Give us one word that people might use to describe you.

How has Project Eve helped you and/or your business?
Project Eve offers a wealth of resources and potential partners that are beneficial as we develop as a marketing firm. We have also begun to build a network outside of our geographic area to expand our reach and support.

Give us an insider tip that relates to your industry or startup story.
There is no perfect way to be an entrepreneur. While starting or managing a business does require strategy and all of those important business-y things, all businesses come from a creative place. Don’t be afraid to let your creative side hold the reigns for a bit. If you have a strong business mind it will naturally back up the creative path. Your creative side may just forge a path you would have otherwise missed.

  4. In the great pattern of things you secure an A+ with regard to effort and hard work. Exactly where you confused me personally was in all the facts. You know, it is said, the devil is in the details… And that could not be much more true at this point. Having said that, allow me say to you what did deliver the results. Your writing can be rather persuasive and that is most likely why I am taking an effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, even though I can easily see the leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am not confident of just how you seem to unite your ideas which in turn make your final result. For the moment I will subscribe to your position but hope in the near future you actually connect the dots much better.

  7. Thanks for the tips you talk about through this web site. In addition, quite a few young women that become pregnant do not even make an effort to get medical health insurance because they are concerned they couldn’t qualify. Although a lot of states now require that insurers supply coverage no matter what about the pre-existing conditions. Prices on all these guaranteed programs are usually greater, but when with the high cost of health care it may be a safer way to go to protect your current financial potential.
