I'm thrilled with the end results it provided. I now have a solidified brand strategy for my business!

Syeda Neary - Divorce Coach

Maria is AMAZING. She is professional, very strategic, creative, and super fun to work with. She helped me with my entire rebrand for my business with the goal of creating a movement in the divorce healing space. She created my custom logo that has sentimental meaning to me, created my brand board, created all of social media graphics, and helped me create my brand launch event. I fall in love with my rebrand more and more every day. If you're thinking of hiring her, DO it! She is wonderful to work with and I can't wait to work with her again for my future design projects.

Deb Lauren - Mindset Coach

I absolutely loved working with Maria. Her process is detailed, strategic and professional and moved me through the re-branding process in a hugely supportive way. Navigating new ideas and goals can be challenging but she knew how to hold space for my nerves and, ultimately, held me accountable to my own evolution as business owner. Maria saw my brand 5 years in the future and once I caught up, I couldn't thank her enough for taking me there. My brand elements are timeless, clean and professional. Thank you, again!

How is this Brand Strategy Breakdown Course different? Why should I buy now?

Brand strategy is the who, what, why and how of your business. This is the foundational piece that most business owners skip over, or quickly complete.

This course is different because I am giving you only what you require and need to run a successful small business. I know there are similar courses out there. Those courses go really deep into the multi-facets of brand strategy and they can leave even experienced pros like me to feel overwhelmed. That’s what I wanted to avoid with my course.

I wanted to make the content easy to consume and easy to process. I wanted to share the simplified and proven methods that I have been using for the past 2 decades. I use these approaches with my very own branding clients which continue to showcase business success. You will leave this course with actual tangible items that you can implement right away in your business and brand.

If you wait, you will still need brand strategy guidance 6 months from now, so think about what waiting will be costing you in the long run. Time and Money. It just makes sense to take action right away to propel your efforts even further.
