In the most recent summertime report from The Harris Poll, 51% of Americans claim to be using social media more since the COVID-19 outbreak began. That percentage increases even more within specific age groups: 60% of respondents aged 18 to 34 and 64% of respondents aged 35 to 49 claim they have increased their screen time with social platforms.
At first glance, real estate investors and rock stars appear to have little in common, when, in reality, they share a major common passion: money.
Cold, hard cash is one of the most common subjects of top music hits around the world. And while dropping brand names for luxury watches and shoes might seem like surface-level swaggery, if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find stories about ambition, motivation, and freedom. Money stands for a lot more than money.
As a welcome to our newest client, Oldner Lighting, this week’s MindHandle Mix is a salute to the power of light! Owner and lighting master Scott Older uses his talents to bring out the emotion of commercial and residential spaces.

Much like our playlist, Scott is truly eclectic. He’s a lighting designer, cyclist, nutrition junky, and even a musician! Give MindHandle Mix Vol. 16 Light On a listen and you’ll find a full spectrum of songs to love.
For centuries, storytellers have employed tools to create and understand the Heroes in their narratives. They work tirelessly to define their Hero from the inside out: from their motivations, fears, and desires, to their mannerisms, appearance, and habits. One of the most popular and time-tested tools for character development? Character personas. And they’re one heck of a tool for marketers, too.
This week’s MindHandle Mix is inspired by one of our favorite restaurants, Fish City Grill. Last year, we got to deep dive into the Fish City Grill experience to rebrand the restaurant chain inside and out (and racked up a few ADDYs along the way including “Best Restaurant Marketing.”) They’ve been our client and preferred source of oyster nachos ever since.
We love Fish City Grill because their brand is modern and friendly, with a dash of irreverence, and a lotta love for darn-tasty, fresh fish. So if you’re daydreaming of a coastal vacation like we are right now, press play on this mix, and drift away.
