According to the Financial Post, U.S. economic growth slowed sharply in the fourth quarter as weak business spending and a wider trade deficit offset the fastest pace of consumer spending since 2006.
The slowdown, which follows two back-to-back quarters of very strong growth, is likely to be short-lived given the enormous tailwind from lower gasoline prices. Most economists believe fundamentals in the United States are strong enough to cushion the blow on growth from weakening overseas economies.
Even with the moderation in the fourth quarter, growth remained above the 2.5% pace, which is considered to be the economy’s potential. Economists had expected the economy to expand at a 3% rate in the fourth quarter

Having a solid brand will: deliver your message clearly, establish your business' credibility, connect your business with your target market, and solidify user loyalty.
In this episode we will be covering how to discover your brand, and target market.
