Every business you have come to support and admire was once a “grass roots” business. In this episode, Jory and I show not only business owners, but also lovers and spectators of economic sustainability and growth, how to thrive. I describe ways to implement tangible business strategies into your business that also build your community. I tell my clients, “You know everyone you need to know in order for your business and community to be a success.” I explain how we can do this and why you care. The show touches on my story and how I came to be the carrier of this business. I use the example of Henry Ford. He envisioned a company with all of these different parts that eventually create a functioning car. The work I do brings together all of the many moving parts of a business to create an integrated, sustainable entity and from there we can evolve your business. Jory and I also talk about the overall vision of Bryant NE and how its impact can change your community.
About Ebonni Bryant
Biographies are sometimes in the 3rd person. I find it more personal to speak to you as I am. My name is Ebonni Bryant and I am a business owner. I am on this path because I have felt this push, like someone or something was pushing my back, to go down this road. This road has not always felt welcoming. I have wanted to run back. I have wanted to walk on someone else’s road and yet here I am helping communities see the value of business. These businesses are local. They are regional. They are national. And in some way, each business has a great purpose. I am here to drag that purpose up to the surface and have it serve the people within it and the people looking in. When a business is doing its best job, everything that touches it has been made better. Through marketing, communications, creative development, and accountability practices, Bryant NE shows business how to move, integrate, and serve. Let’s move together!
Ebonni’s Success Tips
1.) Remember who you are has nothing to do with what you do.
2.) If you are awkward, be awkward, people love that. If you are frank, be frank, it works. Those things about yourself that seem to drive people batty is the very thing that creates a more fulfilling life.
3.) Acting as if those little secrets or idiosyncrasies are not a great part of you is you missing the mark. Bring them into the fold. Don’t sell a concept, talk honestly and openly about who you are. It works!
4.) Everyone you have ever known holds the key to your business success.
