Advertising Entrepreneurship My Industry
This is true in over 95% of cases. I find it especially interesting (mostly because I almost fell deep into this hole myself starting Denote Communications) that new businesses are often fixated on what are actual trivial things such as logos, business cards, names, etc. instead of what actually matters, sales.
