"Badass Your Brand gives the reader in-your-face strategies to stand out, build your brand, and be more profitable. Full of creative ideas, Pia shares her journey from debt to success as she discovered how to be a badass by thinking differently, pricing differently, and designing the life of her dreams.. This is the one book every start-up or seasoned entrepreneur must read."
- DIANE DIRESTA, Author of Knockout Presentations and founder of Diresta Communications
"Pia has struck the perfect chord for small business owners, or those attempting to market themselves. I was so impressed by this Badass Brands book, I plan to re-brand my own business. As a marketing agency, we're all vanilla, even the specialty firms like mine. Her 4-legged approach is perfectly laid out, understandable and interest-peaking. Following this format can definitely separate the porcupines from the fish. I love everything about Badass Brands and can't wait to be one."
- DAVID J DUNWORTH, Founder, Marketing Partners LLC, International Best Selling Author 365 Life Shifts
"Full disclosure: Pia and I have spoken at events together. Her book is like hearing her speak; candid, funny, and badass. She learned by doing, by making mistakes, which gives her an understanding and empathy for the struggles businesses go through. To read her book is to spend time with her. It's fun, informative and insightful. You'll like her. You'll like her book because like her, it's authentic. It's a great handbook for entrepreneurs who want to learn how to navigate the rocky shoals of business."

So why only 4 stars? The book tells you how to recreate your business into a Badass Brand and how to change your mindset to only work with your ideal clients, BUT it doesn't tell you how to go about getting those ideal clients ! The most I heard on that is go to network meetings every morning for 30 days and tell everyone you know... I'm sorry, when you've got bills coming (don't we all?!), that's not going to cut it !
I suppose the real answer is you'd need to hire her to give you "the full picture" but I don't have $3950 for a "brandshrink" and another $19950-$49950 for a "brandup". Yes, there's a DIY Badass Your Business Bootcamp Online Course, but it's on hold with a "waiting list" and the cost, unknown . . . ?
Again, this is a wonderful book that I highly recommend. I just wish she had revealed how to go about getting these ideal clients to flock to you so you can push aside the clients that aren't a great fit, and STILL pay the bills !
As you can tell by the title, this is not your average business book. That title is, however, exactly what the author intends. Refreshingly informal, but packed with insight, experience, and guidance, it is likely to cause some major re-thinking – and probably increased success - on the part of many small businesses.
Small – even micro - businesses are what the book is about, aiming for the thousands of new and not-so-new businesses with less than a handful of employees or owners. This is what the author really knows, having developed her business based on work done by herself and her artist husband. Badass your Brand is very readable mixture of “what we did” – including mistakes made and corrected - and insights on “how we did it and you can too.” She includes examples of clients with whom she has worked on both branding and business practices, and for whom the “badass” approach has been highly successful.
Each chapter is interspersed with guidance on steps that Silva recommends that her readers take. Obviously, this is encompassed by a new and perhaps very bold (or even “badass”) approach to branding, but it does not end there. In Silva’s view, to embolden the brand includes revamping the entire business strategy, and she demonstrates the process of paring down the work load, and increasing success and profits, while at the same time leaving clients both successful and well satisfied.
The studied informality of Silva’s approach will be appealing, and probably very helpful, to most entrepreneurs. A few may have occasional issues with her writing style, but part of the purpose of the book is to shake up her readers’ thinking, and to encourage us to take a new look at our approach to business, and to this end some casual disregard of what is conventional serves well.
I’d encourage any small business owner to take the time to read Badass your Brand. The approach will not work for everyone, but for many it will encourage the kind of revamp, not just of the brand but also of the thinking, that will refresh their approach to what must – and what need not – be done in the business of attracting and successfully serving their clients and customers.

Similar principles to some other books such as key person of influence by Daniel Priestly but Pia explains it much better into actionable steps...
