Kevin "Tank" III
The Fun Master
The special pop-up guest to our Zoom calls, Tank, the son of Kevin & Mary, is always down for a good time playing basketball, watching cars race, or playing some (very, very loud) music.
If you've stuck around this long, you're in for the answer to a question a few have asked us - what does "21five" mean?
It originally came from Revelation 21:5:
And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!”
The idea was surrounding the "new" portion. 21five would make the look and feel of your brand new for, even it had been around for decades.
Now, Proverbs 21:5 resonates more with us. That says:
Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.
We discovered after a very short time of working with clients that taking a strategy-first approach is what truly helps our clients grow. So, we help make good plans (brand strategies) that merge with hard work to lead our clients to success. Makes sense, right?
