As one of the perks from winning the Business Plan Competition, I was granted a meeting with Hanon-McKendry brand consultants. Their CEO Bob Blanchard set me up with their some of their best people: Amy (Director of Public Relations), Pete (co-founder of Mindscape), Jane (Chief Strategic Officer) and the company's co-founder Bill McKendry. I cannot begin to share with you all the expert knowledge they shared with me during our meeting...so I'm not even gonna try at this point. But you will see the results from the meeting as this company progresses - give it time! Anyways, their building is absolutely amazing and is located in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, definitely an inspiring office space. Take a minute to check out their site by clicking the above hyperlink because I know it will be worth your couple of minutes.
