David Defeo

Sunny Bonnell is a multi faceted creative bonded together by her passion for exploration and creativity. When Sunny co-founded Motto it wasn't long until she decided that there was more to branding than a logo and a tagline. From her early days of design eating ketchup sandwiches and missing payroll to her current day success and six digit estimates the through line of Sunny's success is her ability to find what in a brand's story resonates with the world. In the Circle Of Trust Mark distinguishes the difference between an Escape Pod and a Plan B. As you advance your dream career there will be some hardships faced and falling back onto a Plan B will look inviting. Mark walks you through his personal journey and how commit yourself to your goals and dreams.
