Welcome to Episode 189 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast Meghan Lynch, the founder and CEO of Six-Point Creative, talks about her entrepreneurial journey and how it led to the focus of her company: Helping family-owned food and beverage businesses move from a “stuck brand at a plateau” to a focused, scalable brand positioned for sustainable growth. The Six-Point Creative flagship program — Solve for Y Brand Accelerator System — is designed to help family businesses double their business without losing their existing customers or values. Meghan shares with us the most common mistakes family businesses make and her recommendations for what businesses should be planning for now. It’s a fascinating discussion for any business leader and one that will be of particular value for owners of family businesses.

So if you want to know:

  • Why businesses get “stuck” — and it’s not for lack of opportunities
  • Why you need to figure out the DNA — “do not alter” — of your brand
  • How internal/external branding can help you retain key employees and position your company as an employer of choice
  • How the fear of alienating an existing client can stop you from growing
  • How knowing your company’s touchpoints can help you spend your marketing dollars more effectively


About Meghan Lynch

Meghan Lynch is a brand strategist and founder and CEO of Six-Point Creative. She basically fell into entrepreneurship and, when her co-founding partners retired, realized she had to figure it out for herself. After talking with other CEOs of family-owned, closely held businesses, she decided to focus Six-Point Creative on family-owned restaurants and food manufacturers. Today she helps these businesses make smarter, faster decisions that drive growth. A sought-after speaker, Megan was named one of the Enterprising Women of the Year in 2019. She has set up a special landing page on her company’s website for Building My Legacy listeners.
