Building a Brand. Mike Barbour takes us through the mindset and process of building a brand in the Health and Fitness arena.
Mike has made his mark on some big names across the country, which include; Rivalus, Daiily by Freshii, Goodstuff Brand, Outcast Foods, and a Farm to Table restaurant named Harvest opening in July 2020 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
He walks us through what it is like to continually start from scratch on new projects and the challenges that can bring.
Work ethic is something Mike prides himself on, but he elaborates on how we need to work smarter and not just longer to ensure we can see continual growth.
