David Valentine is your everyday poet, prophet, painter who loves to create engaging marketing by crafting brand experiences that make a lasting impression.

He launched Rethink Creative in the Spring of 2013 with a simple idea to bring tremendous ROI to each and every client the agency served. David’s worked with name brands from the Fortune 500, as well as regional and statewide companies,  all the way down to small craft breweries. He lives in Fort Worth with his wife, 3 small kids, and two large dogs. If you want to be David's friend, bring him a local craft beer or craft roasted coffee.

In his words...

My turning points come every 19 months, I'm in the midst of one now. Each turning point centers around 1 central theme. Firing people who are close to me.

I fired a guy who was once an intern and brought him to Texas to work for me. Then, 19 months almost to the day, I fired my best friend and business partner. I'm now renaming the agency and taking my leadership/management game to the next level.

If there was a point where the agency turned the corner though... if I had to distill it to 1 moment... it was firing my businesses partner. That was the catalyst for 4x our revenue and transforming the agency into what it is now.

The two things I've learned are: Overvalue yourself and niche, niche, niche.
