For today’s entrepreneur, the importance of a compelling personal brand will never diminish–regardless of size or length in business.

What does result in real change is your willingness to be visible, transparent, and vulnerable. Letting others see you is what attracts the clients and followers that resonate with you–and who you want to serve.

In a world of perpetual online deception, we teach you how to develop a compelling, genuine personal brand that builds trust and speaks to your ideal customer’s needs and desires. The key is how to show up as the authentic you. Not the façade of you, and not the version of you that you think others want to see.

The real you.

We understand that for some, being visible may not feel comfortable or safe. Others might just need direction. As we educate you and help you evolve, our goal is to elevate you and your business.

What does this realness require?

To be “on-brand.”

That means showing up in words and visuals reflecting:

  • Your passions
  • Your genius zone talents
  • Your courageous heart
  • Causes that you care about
  • Clients you serve and why
  • and the people in your life who matter the most to you.

We walk you through how to use the perception + positioning + impact = profit strategy. This strategy helps you safely be authentic and savvy on your social channels, website, videos, blog articles, reels, and more.

Through this formula, conversion happens over time as people reach out to you to learn more about your services or collaborations—which become as lucrative opportunities.

No more hiding

Who is this 6-week personal branding getting started and rebranding program for?


The new creative entrepreneur

who has been in business 1-3 years who may have the beginnings of a brand but knows it’s time to develop a solid, strategic personal brand and learn how to monetize it by investing in yourself and your business through coaching.


The mature creative entrepreneur

5-10 years + that has been ruminating on a rebrand (it’s time) or may have neglected creating one at all. You are ready to develop a solid, strategic personal brand and how to monetize it by investing in yourself and your business through coaching.


Regardless, you need an impactful personal brand that you are proud of to hand over to your web designer.

Personal branding is who you are, not what you do.

What you do is important, and we mentor you how to communicate that. However, you are creating the know, like, and trust factor first. People like to buy from those they feel they can trust and provide them with their needs and interests. You make your values, passions, and inspirations known to your followers.

You’ve probably been thinking…
You are not clear how to integrate your brand with what you are selling so that it feels and looks natural (not salesy).
You are unclear how to integrate a personal brand into your business.
You want to implement a list of to-dos for the brand but are unsure how to compose the actionable goals.
You have a website but no personal brand. You did not know that branding comes first, then the website.
You need to hire a web designer but you need a personal brand ready to hand over to them.
