Do What You Want Radio | A Podcast for Creatives, Hosted by Jordan Hefler

In this episode I interview Taylor Bennett, CEO of the creative agency MESH, about why company culture and empowering your employees is important, how to scale a business organically, and the things brands shouldn’t skip over when it comes to branding.

THINGS WE TALKED ABOUT:

  • Creating a company culture that empowers people to love their job and be good at it

  • Growing slow but growing steady

  • How brands that don’t invest in themselves will suffer

  • What services MESH can offer brands, but only if they’re in alignment

  • How content strategies are changing everyday as social platforms continue to change

  • How branding is more than just creating beautiful things
