Polish Your Silver
All Queens have a silver tea set, but it takes a lot of polish to keep it gleaming. So does your brand. Here is what we’ll polish:
Mission- A mission statement is extremely important because it gives your business a sense of direction and clarity about what to do.
Audience– understand exactly who your perfect client is. If you sell to everyone you sell to no one… we will narrow your audience into a specific tribe who will be happy to follow you.
Style- Pick a style that speaks your vision as a feeling or emotion, is it: sleek or romantic, fancy or sexy, traditional or ultra-hip… pick out images that speak to that style to express your brand.
Colors- Learn the meaning of colors and how to pick the ones that best represent your brand, and how to incorporate them into all you do!
Logo- Is the crowning glory! Finding the best version for your brand, how to get it designed, and how to let it evolve.
Make The Tea
Just like making tea for the queen, you need the right ingredients at the right time to make it all come together beautifully.
Website- Structuring the design and pages of your site to be user-friendly, brand consistent, and growable.
Style Blueprint- No matter what you call it, style guide, design brief, or brand elements, its purpose is to outline the aesthetics of all components, keeping your brand aligned.
Social Media– Choosing the right platforms you and your clients use and then using them the best way. Create the know, like, and trust engagement that social media requires.
Blog/Email- Ideas and prompts that express your brand and how to best use both as direct informational tools to your benefit.
Calendar- Planning makes everything easier. We’ll create a 6-12 month plan that encompasses your brand promotion.
“I found myself getting stuck on how to speak to what seemed like two different audiences, our clients and our team members and Michelle helped me gain both the clarity and confidence to fully embrace our unique value.” - Laura
Take off the tiara and put on your crown!
Each month starts off with a meeting to discuss the topics we’ll work on, look at the status of where you are and where you want to go. Then there is some magic wand waving involved, we’ll meet again to review the work, deal with any adjustments, and then move on to the next month. After 4 months you will have a personalized plan, a digital brand guideline folder you can refer to when fulfilling the work we’ve outlined.You really want to make the investment in your brand but private Brand Coaching sounds too queenly. What does a private Brand Coaching cost? Well, how will you grow your business if you don’t evolve? What effective changes will you make in the next 4 months alone? Or will you just be 4 months down the road still thinking about what you could do…
I have been in your shoes!
After many moons of corporate business life in the "Devil Wears Prada" industry both nationally and internationally, I sure have experienced a thing or two about branding. I trained on the basics right here in the heartland of the USA, then I learned luxury branding while living in Europe, working for the American brand St. John Knits. I have learned through all my years in the Fashion industry exactly how brands work and the best and easiest way to move forward in branding. The flexibility and understanding I gained from working with various countries have given me the open-mindedness needed to comprehend what a brand needs.
My name is Michelle and I started TrueSelf Branding so I could help solopreneurs like you find their way through the tangle of should, musts, and problems of branding your own business.
This is for you if...
...You are a solopreneur tho has been stalled on the next steps
...You feel like your brand got created by accident and it’s not cohesive at all
...Clueless, you think you might know what you want but have no idea how to start
...Your concept has changed but your brand has not
...You’re stuck getting your website launched
...Your social media profiles are a jumble
...Blogging, or emailing has you frustrated

Why 4 Months?
Like any piece of fine jewelry fit for a queen, it takes time to build and create that crown. When the process is complete, you will have the plans are in your hand to activate, quite literally, you will have social media examples, you will have images, templates, calendars, and a renewed energy because now, even you believe in your brand.
My issue is, I don’t have a focus.
If you don’t have a focus you are leaving money on the table. Clarifying your target market, mission and your visual representation will make your brand clearer and the ability to decipher what your market really needs easier, which = making more sales.
"I look forward to a great year in a large part due to Michelle’s guidance!" -Laura
