Jacie Dunkle Recommends VMV Brands
“I currently own three restaurants and I have used VMV Brands for all three. When I approached them to help me advertise Fellini’s #9, I had been open for a number of years and needed a marketing boost. They came in, did an amazing job at getting the ‘word out’ about our new menu items and other promotions we were running. They came and took pictures of our food and highlighted our menu and drink specials. This resulted in an increase in business. I know this because people would ask for the food items that had been featured. Read more

Mr. Gillespie, “DWYGD” and how they changed my life….
EDITOR’S NOTE: I penned the submission below for the Walsingham Academy alumni magazine on June 4, 2012.

At the time, I didn’t know I was hearing a lesson that would profoundly impact my personal life and professional career. Frankly, at the time, I didn’t know much of anything. Read more
Here’s what I’m going to do with this website…
Well, this is my first blog post. I’m not sure what this forum will evolve into, but I feel compelled to express my thoughts, so I asked the VMV Brands team to build me a website. I often find inspiration in the most random places, but I don’t have a dedicated journal or diary to capture these fleeting moments. I plan to use this forum to collect, organize and chronicle these inspirational thoughts because they offer vision, balance and perspective. I hope to reflect on this inspiration – along with my trials, tribulations, failures and successes – and use them all to make me a better person and conscious capitalist. Read more
