Oftentimes business owners are so eager to get their business launched, that they don’t take the necessary steps to identify and create a quality brand before they go to market. If people don’t understand or relate to your brand, you won’t see the results you desire.
Your brand represents who you are as a business, and how you want people to perceive you. It’s much more than a logo or a color scheme.
Vision, planning, strategy, and sequencing are important factors to creating and launching your brand.

Michelle Calloway is a Speaker, Int’l Bestselling Author, and the Founder and CEO of REVEALiO, Inc., an innovative software development company specializing in augmented reality experiences. Inc. Magazine supports her goal to make augmented reality experiences accessible and affordable for everyone, to enhance human relationships, and empower business owners to have more impact, influence, and income.
Michelle combines her expertise in visual communication with the emerging world of augmented reality (AR). This cutting-edge technology overlays virtual content on top of real world objects when they are viewed through a mobile or wearable smart device.
Her vision of REVEALiO became clear when she witnessed the powerful heartfelt connection that took place when a deployed U.S. soldier received a REVEALiO Greetings Card from his girlfriend. When the card “came alive” with her talking to him on the card, it rocked him to his core. He folded it up and carried it with him every day because it made him feel as if she was right there with him. This powerful human response is what inspired Michelle Calloway to develop and launch REVEALiO – Cards That Come Alive!
Michelle wants to share her inspirational story and teach the power of augmented reality as a marketing tool to entrepreneurs, small business owners, CEOs, Video Professionals, and Publishers. Her heart is to empower small businesses to gain the ultimate competitive advantage by captivating their audiences and influencing their buying decisions.
