In case you only had one or two aspects right, here is how to create a full-on shitty brand.
Talk about good ‘ole hand made things that are just beautiful.

Great talk by Eric Ries about the Lean Startup. ItΓÇÖs not a new idea, and he has been talking about it for a while now, but itΓÇÖs still interesting and he clears up some myths about what a lean startup is.
A lot has been said about getting started. The idea of just get going and do something and, everything will fall into place. But making something happen seems to be easier for some than for others. Some people just go. They donΓÇÖt ask any ifΓÇÖs and buts’. They just go. And it works. Sometimes. Sure, a great idea is good, but a great idea with a good understanding of how to implement it is even better, and probably more likely to be successful. Yet, there is more to success than just getting started. ItΓÇÖs the beginning. It requires passion and dedication. It requires commitment. If youΓÇÖre not dedicated about whatever it is you want to start or achieve, if youΓÇÖre not passionate about it, then just forget it. It doesnΓÇÖt make sense to waste any time, effort or let alone money on something you donΓÇÖt really, truly and deeply care about.
IΓÇÖm about to start something new. Something that IΓÇÖm excited about and have been thinking about for a long time. Do I have all the answers to make it happen? Do I know already how to make it a success? Definitely not. Am I passionate about it and dedicated to make it a successful endeavor? You bet. Stay tuned, IΓÇÖll share my thoughts about it right here as time flies by.
