Kathy took the time to delve deeply to ensure that she grasped who I was and what I spoke about. She made it easy for me to spill my thoughts. Essentially, she “got” me, and it was fun working with her to create the messaging I wanted. I looked forward to each and every call as we made great progress. Kathy did exactly what I contracted her to do and I am completely satisfied and would recommend her to anyone looking for help with their messaging.

REVEALED: Your Irresistible Brand Presence and Message

(Signature Program: 8-weeks; 4-modules plus 1 Bonus module)

For entrepreneurs who need to identify what makes them unique in the marketplace; and their own words, voice, and message to express it so that they attract more of the right clients.

This robust, foundational program drills deep to help you discover the 4 elements of your Brand Presence: your Brand Story, Distinction, Voice, and Message. Like your fingerprint, they are uniquely yours and irreplaceable. Content rooted in these four elements will give you a strong Brand Presence and attract your True Clients (the ones who resonate with it).

In this in-depth, 5-module Signature Program you will:

1. Uncover your Brand Story

This isn’t the “comfortable” story you may have been telling on your website About Page. It’s the deeper one that birthed who you really are; and it’s the source of your Brand Distinction, Message, and Voice; and your True Client.

2. Drill down to who you really are — your Brand Distinction

It’s essential that you find, and own, what makes you distinct. You must take a stand for who you are. Not everyone will like you and that’s just fine. When your distinction burns bright and clear, you’ll attract more of the clients you want to reach.

3. Find your Brand Voice and your own words to express it

Your voice is your business, is your brand, is you. It’s one and the same—a huge advantage. But many entrepreneurs don’t know what their voice is or how to express it. This module reveals it so you will be heard.

4. Reconnect with your Brand Message and what you’re here to do

You have two messages—your Values Message, and your Irresistible Unscripted Message. We’ll uncover both, and in the process, turn the traditional elevator pitch on its head. You’ll be able to speak your message confidently, with natural warmth and enthusiasm, rather than memorizing and reciting a script.

5. Discover your True Client (BONUS Module)

Once you’re clear on your brand story, distinction, voice, and message, it’s easier to identify who you’re really speaking to—your True Client. Kind of like your true love, only you get to have more than one.

You’ll walk away knowing what makes you stand out from your competition, and ready to express your message in your own voice and words to the clients who are a fit.

NOTE: This is an 8-week online, self-study program. The modules may also be taken individually. You can supplement the modules with 1:1 coaching.
