Embrace Your Brand Story does not teach any design elements, nor does it walk you through the branding process. This course is designed to take a deep look at your visual identity and determine the direction it should go in order to reach your target market.
My goal is for you to become more confident in the direction of your brand. If you complete the activities and worksheets and still feel that you are unclear of where your brand needs to go, please send me an email within 14 days of purchase and I will happily process your refund.
A brand is so much more than your visual identity. Do you ever wonder what people think of you? Of your company? Those thoughts, both positive and negative, are all part of your brand identity. The moment you put yourself and your business out there for the world, your story began. If you want to find the right clients, you need to take control of your story and start creating the brand of your dreams.
I believe in the saying “You don't know where you're going if you don't know where you've been.” It’s important to learn from our past in order to really get an idea of what we need in the future. This course is meant to do that. I know that working for yourself is hard and branding yourself in a way that feels good to you and speaks to your clients can be even harder.
I’ve spent over a decade working with individuals and solopreneurs, family businesses, and multi-level corporations in all varieties of industries to create strong branding and graphics. In this course you’ll learn some of the vital tools I use before every branding project so that I can fully understand each clients individual story. Once the course is through, you’ll know exactly where you’ve been and have a clear idea of what you need to do to create the perfect brand for your business.
While there were aspects of my brand I loved, I always had that nagging feeling that I could have a stronger brand. Laura’s course helped me to gain clarity on the parts of my brand that were serving my business and the parts that were holding me back. I was able to quickly see what I needed to change and then get the assistance to move my brand forward. Now I have complete confidence in my brand and so does my ideal client.- Dana Malstaff, Expand Your Reach
I'm extremely clear on my ideal client, which I never even thought about before reading your course!- Lauren Collister, Lauren Collister
Laura brings up an interesting process on how to go about deciding on branding. I almost wanted to quit because I felt like I was really behind on a lot of my business, but the fact that Laura was so encouraging helped me to continue. I trust her vast knowledge and she definitely knows what she's talking about. Great spirit!- Lauren Caselli, Lauren Caselli Events
