Just when you thought you’ve nailed down your brand’s product development and marketing — from using lean methods to SEO to content marketing, you came across another article stressing the significance of UX, UI, design thinking, information architecture, and the list goes on.

You're disgusted with the idea of hard selling.
You can’t stomach the thought of feigning interest, flashing on that fake smile, and showering your prospects with a bazillion of insincere compliments just to get them to say yes to your offer.
It sounds unethical, yes? It just doesn’t click with you.
Whether you’re a solopreneur running a coffee shop or a chief SEO officer heading a team dotted across the globe, there is no way for you to accomplish organizational goals without doing a SWOT. Heck, the folks behind HBO’s Silicon Valley, a hilarious take on tech geeks, even dedicated a minute of airtime to the almighty SWOT. And government organizations are dead serious about SWOT too.

There are also skeptics asking if it’s just a waste of money to pursue thought leadership.
Entrepreneurs often begin with an idea. The challenge lies in translating this idea into a profitable product or service.
