Now you know the gist, it’s time to get to work executing a plan. Keep this cheat sheet by your side as you do to make sure you stay on course and have easy access to all the resources and tips you need to succeed.

Glossary of Terms Brand – Your brand is your company’s ‘identity’. This incorporates everything that will make your business unique and that will provide a cohesive service and experience for your customers.

Logo – This is the image that you will use almost like a ‘calling card’. It will incorporate your company name in most cases and should evoke your mission statement. Mission Statement – This is a few sentences that will express what your company aims to achieve and how you aim to achieve it.
