Great article, super interesting. And I definitely agree with what you said about product marketers trying to make unhealthy food look healthy. There are some healthy frozen food choices out there for example, but you ALWAYS have to read the label before buying. There's been many times that I picked up an eat smart or healthy choice meal and found very high calorie counts for not much food.

If you don't mind, I'd like to get your advice on something if possible.

I’m thinking of opening a fitness center, but I'm having a hard time coming up with a unique branding concept.

I've actually even thought of making it a kind of tribute to Arnold theme - yes, I'm that desperate.

What I really want is to open a fitness center that has a smaller workout room but also has a full service food area where people can learn how to correctly read food labels so they can make smarter food-shopping decisions in general.

I have found a couple of free online apps that offer business branding concepts: http://mindflashad.com/branding-concept-quiz-design/

What do you think? Do you think the branding concept they return for solopreneur fitness center with a young adult to adult age range would work for a successful business concept?

I would really appreciate the advice. Thanks and great article! Can't wait to see what you have next!!
