Everybody needs a cheerleader…
That person who does more than get to know you, your business, and your client avatar, but who can really SEE you. Like deep down, into your truth, even when you can’t. The person who can remind you of your greatness when times are tough… and let’s be honest: sometimes the entrepreneurial road can be a little bit rocky.
Well sweet one, I’ve got some pom poms, a cheery disposition, and a can-do attitude.
Though I should warn you: I’ve been known to drop an eff-bomb or fifty.
A question I love asking people is: What type of magic do you create?
It gets all sorts of answers…. From the well defined (“I help women reclaim their power.”) to the abstract (“I coax out a person’s inner unicorn.”) How this question gets answered tells me a lot about a person. My answer is this:
I make brand magic.
I reach into your heart to tell the story your soul yearns to share. I weave that story into your brand to help you show up fully, and authentically, in your life, and your business. I co-create with Spirit to make something so aligned, so precious, that you have the confidence to claim your leadership and to make impact on those around you.
I touch a few lives, who touch a few lives, who touch a few… And together, we’re starting a revolution.
Like you, maybe, my story includes a chapter of the unhappy corporate life…
Long hours. Bad coffee. Competing demands. One company I worked for’s motto was “Right away and all at once.” I am so grateful for that time though, because it showed me what I’m made of. Every job I’ve had was in a sink-or-swim environment, and I never let the waves overtake me. I learned that I have a hidden resilience that showed up every time I felt a flicker of doubt or overwhelm. I learned how to manage high end clients and a million+ dollar sales quota, how to brand with the best of them, and how to be rewarded with money, gifts, and travel for my hustle.
It wasn’t enough to keep me in corporate though. And it didn’t stop me from burning out. But it did stoke a fierce fire of independence that pushed me into entrepreneurship.
I learned many skills I use with my clients today, beyond branding and design. I learned relationship selling, strategy, ick-free negotiation that helps everyone feel like they’ve won. I learned to do what I’m great at, and rally support for the rest.
I believe that anything is possible. I’m living proof.
If you’d told me as a kid growing up in city housing on social assistance that I’d be flown to the Four Seasons in Costa Rica by one of the biggest companies in the world because I’d made them over a million dollars, I would have called you a liar. Full stop.
This isn’t one of those gag-worthy, rags-to-riches stories. This is me telling you that I get it. Being an entrepreneur is inner work. My corporate sales success didn’t prepare me for that. I had no idea how many of my old stories I’d need to overcome just to keep myself from having to work for someone else. If not for my relationship with Spirit (which started intuitively on the playground, and rekindled in my late 20s), I’d be another statistic of someone with big dreams who relied on someone else for a paycheque.
I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to feel unclear about my purpose, and to work for the weekend, though I’m proud to say I’ve never uttered the words Fri-Yay! I remember being unable to invest in my business and wasting so much time reading through people’s freebies, many of which contradicted each other, instead of serving my people. I remember doubting my gifts (the business ones, and the intuitive ones), and wondering if anyone would ever pay me for them. And to this day, I still get bitchslapped with anxiety and the flu every time I uplevel. So believe me when I tell you: I get it. Today, I aspire to live my life in a way that is an example of what’s possible. I’m just one woman — there is nothing particularly special about me or my journey. But I keep showing up. I keep doing the work. I keep trying. I don’t give up. I cry, I hustle, I fall, I get up. And if I can… you can.
My commitment to you is that I will always share openly, and transparently, even when it hurts. I won’t fill you with false hope and promises, but I promise to see you, and meet you where you are. We will talk, and laugh, and explore. We’ll work our butts off and find the truest truth that feels wholly aligned for you, and totally magnetic for your dream clients. We’ll co-create some magic together, and it’s going to feel amazing.
