Developing Your Brand Story

About the Program

Our story and who we have become as a business owner, and or employee are a blend of our own choices and some that are not in our control.  How can you positively reflect and present a brand to a consumer or a prospect?

What kind of impact an intentional and fluid marketing plan had on my personal business journey and my community?  Overcoming imposter syndrome and trusting the defined values and process.
