Has anyone ever asked you, “what’s your brand?” Whether the answer is yes or no, take a 30 seconds and think about it. What defines you? What makes you unique? What makes you standout?

I’m sure most of us have heard of Morgan Spurlock. Remember that documentary…Super Size Me… the film made you hate McDonalds? (Or least avoid it for 24 hours until the cravings kicked in again?)

It’s no surprise that his brand shines bright when he gives one hell of a TED Talk “The Greatest TED Talk Ever Sold.” Check out his take on branding and the influence major marketing plays on our spending habits.
