Yesterday I read a section Mistake Number Two that every business do in their communication. Today we will start with BUSINESS HAS AN ENEMY.


Business has a fierce, insidious enemy that, if not identified and combated, will contort our company into an unrecognizable mess. The enemy I’m talking about is noise.

“Noise has killed more ideas, products, and services than taxes, recessions, lawsuits, climbing interest rates, and even inferior product design.” β€” Donald Miller, Building a StoryBrand


All experienced writers know the key to great writing isn’t in what they say; it’s in what they don’t say. The more we cut out, the better the screenplay or book.

To clarify our message we’re going to need a formula. A serious formula. This formula needs to organize our thinking, reduce our marketing effort, obliterate confusion, terrify the competition, and finally get our businesses growing again.

Let’s learn about that formula now.

That’s it for today. Tomorrow, I will read the second chapter THE SECRET WEAPON THAT WILL GROW YOUR BUSINESS
