Growing a Business In Challenging Times with Valentina Gomez Bravo

Award-winning brand strategist Valentina Gomez Bravo has found amazing success blending creativity and business during her 17-year career. Yet, it hasn’t always been easy. This week, Valentina joins me to chat about the challenging moments of her career, from leaving a beloved business due to injury, to moving her branding agency, Bunker 58, to an entirely new country during a time of political strife. 

In this episode, we’ll cover: 

  • Why Valentina decided to create a branding firm to service small businesses 

  • Valentina’s courageous and difficult decision to bring her life and business to the US from Venezuela 

  • The steps that Bunker 58 takes to educate their digital branding clients about infringement mistakes 

  • Why your brand is never too small to avoid infringement allegations 

  • The benefits of building a multi-national team 

  • Valentina’s nightmare experience when she found out that her speaking presentation had been stolen, graphics and all, by a competitor 

  • Why working with an attorney was not nearly as scary as she originally thought it would be
