Good communication is clarity of thought in a way that is understood. However, that is not always the case in business or relationships. People just talk and never communicate. Communication must clearly convey a message so that it is not misinterpreted because that is what makes the fabric of effective marketing in a business. And as we know, where there is no marketing, there are no sales, and a business that does not make a sale is headed for failure. Everything begins with communication, and that is why it is a mandatory skill for all entrepreneurs. Mark Harvenner, a communication and marketing strategist, joins us in this episode to share tips and insights on this subject matter. 

Mark Havenner is a marketing and communication strategist specializing in brand and executive thought leadership, strategic content development, and corporate communications strategies. He's more than 20 years of experience aligning messages and business goals and developing many communication vehicles and message strategies for many clients.

In this podcast episode, we will talk about messaging, branding, and how to align what you say with what you want to do.
