Chapter 9’s long list of brand values

My book, Content DNA, includes advice for business owners on defining the “shape” of their brand.

One of the exercises in chapter 9 is “The X Factor word list method”. If you’ve read the book, you’ll know that didn’t want to stuff a dirty long list in there, so I’ve put it here instead.
