Video: The limits of your brand

Since I got a very positive response to my first video post here about how you can’t inch your way to magnificence, I thought I’d do a similar one.

This video is about the limits of your brand, and why mine can never involve pushy marketing.

(Also, why little old ladies are the secret weapon we all need to have.)

What are the limits of your brand? What do you need to include or exclude? Tell me in the comments!

  1. I think my favorite part is *zooming face close up* “That lady is so INTENSE.” with the birds cawing in the background. Very atmospheric. 😉

    I know how you feel. I can’t really be intimidating on purpose. I was never intimidating enough to be truly punk rock 😛 (It might be the height getting us down Catherine, ’cause I’m 5’2″, and I sported a rainbow mohawk for a while too.)

    1. 🙂 I’m attempting to get more creative with the video posts, it was nice of the birds to co-operate.

      Of course, if either of us wanted to be intimidating on a regular basis, we’d be awesome at it, height be damned. Clearly we are just too sweet for it. 🙂

  2. I also think that says something magnificent about old ladies – not getting sucked into superficials, just seeing straight to the heart of things. Heh.

  3. Catherine, I adore you.

    I’m very short, and I spent years wishing that people wouldn’t call me cute. Grrr. I wanted to be pretty, or gorgeous, or impressive, or anything but cute. Well, now that I’m 51, I really don’t care. “Cute” has turned into enthusiastic, supportive, excited, warm, and funny. It’s who I am. Yay!

    1. I once got told that I would be cute while holding a hand grenade. At the time I was flattered – because I was very young – but later on I realised that was kinda *totally shithouse*. I’m unthreatening while holding a deadly weapon? Grrrr!

      So you can imagine my reaction when one of my clients admitted that I was slightly intimidating.


  4. You’re the best – and your default is why we love you 🙂

    I’ve been told (by some) that I’m intimidating but I don’t feel that way or even try – Ack!

    Mostly, I’m quirky, which may shade into down right odd at times, with a side of optimism all served up on a plate of truthfulness that sometimes goes a bit far (I try to watch that, but frequently forget the social niceties).
