E5: What Country Stars Know: The Hero’s Journey for Local Business

Episode 5 Featured Image Hero's Journey

What’s the difference between a Country Star and a Rock Star?

Think about a country song, one story and the progression of that story. Now think about a rock chorus, one big idea repeated again and again.

A business styled as a country star will ride on your experience, integrity, and expertise as an owner with a partner or small team. It’s personal branding as a personal connection with the individual. With a rock star business, the customer might meet the owner, but most likely you are serviced by the team.

Learn more in today’s episode of the Small Stage, Big Impact podcast.
