Grab a Twinkie or two - enjoy them while you read the story of a brand resurrected - truly branding for results. 
Friday's Fearless Brand - TwinkiesThe Continental Baking Company - of Indianapolis, Indiana, introduced Hostess® Cupcakes back in 1919. Wrapped for on-the-go consumption, they were a big success so Continental expanded in 1926  the line of snacks under the Hostess® brand name. An item that became incredibly popular was a single serving strawberry shortcake - sponge cake with a strawberry creme filling.The time frame for that snack was limited by ...

Love him or hate him - James Carville is a fearless brand. 
Controversial. Eccentric. Authentic. Fearless.
Friday's Fearless Brand - James CarvilleCarville, Louisiana is located in Iberville Parish just south of Baton Rouge.  The town was given its name in the late 1800's in honor of its postmaster. It is home to the National Hansen's Disease Museum - located at the site of a former sugar plantation which in 1894, became home to the now closed Carville National Leprosarium. On October 25, 1944, Carville  also became the birthplace of the first grandso...

If you're thinking "Wolverine" - you're missing the true depth of the man! +Hugh Jackman is much more than what 'meets the eye'.
Friday's Fearless Brand - Hugh JackmanHis family left England in 1967, moving to Australia as part of that country's "populate or perish" initiative which offered financial incentives to immigrants. Born the next year, he was the youngest of five children but only the second to be Australian born.  The country suited him with its vast and diverse outdoors - he loved the beach and camping. A variety of school outings and holidays afforded him the ...

Passion, design, conviction and love led +Christian Louboutin to create a brand which has impacted the entire fashion world.
Friday's Fearless Brand - LouboutinMany would view his childhood as anything but normal. Not too many kids get expelled from school three times - before they reach age twelve - and most don't leave home at the age of 12 1/2. For Christian, however, his youth was both normal and natural. Born in Paris, France in 1963 - his father was a cabinet maker while his mother, a home-maker, eventually took a job as a maid. Christian grew up in a feminine en...

Do you own a Stetson? Perhaps you should - cowboy!
Friday's Fearless Brand - the Stetson®The American West of the 1800's was a land filled with promise - not just of hope and great opportunity - but also the promise of diverse dangers and hard living.  For one young man in his twenties, John - born and raised in Orange, New Jersey - the west held the promise of improved health. Having been diagnosed with tuberculosis, he headed west in the hopes that the open skies and clean air would afford his ...

Geeks not only can be cool - they are often fearless brands as shown by Bill Nye - The Science Guy
Friday's Fearless Brand - Bill Nye - 'The Science Guy'Before they had even met - much less conceived him - World War II played a significant role in the lives of  his parents. In July of 1941, Ed Nye, the man who would become his father, left San Francisco and set out for Wake Island, just east of Guam in the Western Pacific Ocean.  Once there, he began his new job as a canteen clerk. Four months later, Wake Island was invaded by the Japanese on ...

So Bill, do I need to take up stand-up to cultivate my geek image?   I generally though most of my life was an excellent demonstration of my outer-geek.  Have an awesome Friday!

Dreams can shape a country - a nation. Patrick Awuah's vision and conviction created +Ashesi University and the results are powerful and far reaching.
Friday's Fearless Brand - Patrick AwuahHe was born in Accra, Ghana in 1965 and raised in that country's chaos of the sixties and seventies. Ghana was under the rule of a military dictatorship whose policies made life difficult, to say the least. Finding food was a daily challenge for most families including his own. Imagine it being illegal for a business to make a profit - or to maintain product inventory of any significance. The country's econo...
