If This, Then That: Entrepreneurial Word Problems With One Simple Solution

If this, then that: Entrepreneurial word problems with one simple solution

there is only one you,
there is no one else exactly like you.




your business is a reflection of you,
there is no other business exactly like yours.




there is no other business exactly like yours,
you have no competition.


Is it really that simple?

I believe it can be. I believe the more you know yourself, the more you know your business. And the more you know your business, the better you can differentiate it. And the better you differentiate your business, the less competition you’ll have.

I believe you can intentionally create a business that is a truly unique, authentic reflection of yourself… So unique that it doesn’t have competition.

And a huge part of expressing your originality happens through branding—the personality of your business that is expressed through visual aesthetics, tone of voice, immersive experiences, and all the right feels.

This may be a nebulous, ideological perspective. But it doesn’t have to be complex. I believe it can be quite simple. Because you already have all of the information inside of you.

By knowing yourself—really, deeply knowing yourself. Not being afraid to go there, and really get to know who you are at the core and why you started your business in the first place. (Sure, we all started our businesses to make money, that is not unique.) I’m talking about the one thing that gets you out of bed in the morning. Your motivation to make a change in the world around you. By combining that with the beautiful mix of life experiences, people who’ve woven in and out of them, and the lessons you’ve learned along the way you can create a one-of-a-kind brand that resonates with your ideal audience, building a connection that results in trust and loyalty.

Your business already has a brand—whether you’ve intentionally created it or not. And I’m here to encourage you to take ownership and control of it—stop letting others tell your story for you. They’ll never do it justice!

Before you can focus your attention on outward marketing and sales tactics, try looking inward to make sure what you’re saying is meaningful, truthful, and impactful. Take a step back before making a huge leap (financial or otherwise). If your message is in alignment with you, it will be beautifully timeless and probably very refreshing in a completely over-saturated space.

Allow yourself to take the time to dive deep and identify and define your brand at the core, at your business’ core. You’ll achieve more peace of mind when marketing, you’ll feel more confident with your selling process, and generate more income and impact as your business scales to true profitability.

You are the perfect person to bring your brand to life. Only you have the capability to write your own business’ brand story. An effort that will never go in vain, as it will help you make quicker business decisions, it will help you narrow down advertising mediums to the most effective for your audience, it will clarify your messaging to your most ideal customer, and empower your employees to become excited messengers.

The key ingredient is a fun, easy-to-follow roadmap complete with carefully crafted questions steering you toward your ideal brand. And with your permission, that’s what I’d love to share with you. Because:

Before you can market your business, you need to know what message to communicate.

You can’t craft a message without knowing your niche or your ideal audience, because you’ll want to speak their language.

And the absolute best way to get to the bottom of identifying your niche and ideal audience is one word: Why?


Competency creates clarity.
Clarity creates confidence.
Confidence attracts customers.

I’ve taken everything I’ve learned from spending tens of thousands of hours over the last 15 years of working with businesses and channeled it into a comprehensive, step-by-step process that clarifies an authentic, intentional brand inspired by your passion. Build a Better Brand Process is the first of its kind that…

Helps you discover your Why:

Knowing the passion behind your purpose will be your true North when you get stuck. There’s not a business (or marketing) decision that can’t be simplified when you’re reminded why you started your business in the first place.

Defines your Marketplace Niche:

Determined by either your why or ideal audience, knowing where you stand in the marketplace will help you position your messaging in a way that leaves you without competition.

Intimately introduces your Ideal Audience:

There are people out there needing, praying, and hoping for your product or service. We’ll get to know who they are, what fuels their desires, and why it’s important to speak their language.

Engages Emotions:

How your audience feels is the best way to connect with your ideal audience on a deeper level, building that trust and oh-so-sought-after brand loyalty.

Masters your Marketing:

After identifying and defining the key ingredients, this final recipe brings your “better brand” to the table—time and time again.
