If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we must make our values explicitly clear in our brand, in our business and in the culture of our communities. We have seen the impact of what happens when people say one thing, but do another. So today, I’m excited to bring India Jackson to the conversation to talk about how to make your values crystal clear in your business and your marketing strategy.
