Minter Dialogue with Brad Flowers
Brad Flowers co-founded Bullhorn, an agency based in Kentucky, that builds confident brands with language and design. He’s also author of the new book, The Naming Book, 5 Steps to Creating Brand and Product Names that Sell. In this conversation, we talk about Bullhorn’s journey to becoming a b-corporation, managing an agency while traversing the social tensions and politically charged environment in the US, what you should be considering in how you brand and name your business and products, handling tensions and stress in business and how to make your business more meaningful and valuable.

Great interview. Nice conversation about naming, Minter. Having read the book, it was fun to hear the author in his own voice. Here’s to more brands doing good and making the world a better place.
Glad you enjoyed Jim. It’s something I wonder about as an author myself: is the tone of voice in a book consistent with my real life voice!?
Thanks for coming by. Here’s to making the world a better place!
