When I created this gorgeous number for @theelevatedwoman I remember her reaction: “how did you know?! It feels just like me!” When I create visual brand content, I’m not just designing something beautiful. I’m feeling into the energetic essence of my client. I told my friend Anya (@theelevatedwoman) that I nailed this banner design on the first shot because I knew her so well. It was easy to create because I understood her mission, her magic, her energy, and her brand. If your visual brand doesn’t capture who you are and how you make people feel, it’s never going to feel right. When you know yourself and your brand this well, creating anything in your business becomes cake. You know what to say, you know who you serve, you know your core message, you create aligned offerings. Let it be easy! Get real with yourself and dive deep into who you really are and what truly wants to be born through you 😘

I’ve always been an entrepreneur. I was the kid selling beaded Bobbi pins (yes you read that right) to my school teachers in the 3rd grade. In middle and high school I taught fast pitch pitching lessons. In high school I was a serial fundraiser. In college I started 2 Etsy shops,sold essential oils, and became a yoga teacher. I’ve dabbled in lots of things, always searching for that thing that would make money and fill up my soul. I started my current business fresh out of college with a backpack strapped to my back as I travelled the world and built my empire. There was just one problem — I was dancing around my truth, afraid of what might happen if I actually did what my soul was craving instead of what everyone else wanted from me. I was solely a graphic designer for about a year in business. I wanted to help people capture their essence, so I secretly worked with their energy and intention while building logos and websites. While I was making money, I was exhausted because I wasn’t bringing my full self to my business. I wasn’t fully aligned. I had built a business that I didn’t love, and I was burnt out. When I paused and asked myself what I really wanted, my soul screamed at me to be a spiritual teacher. I knew that I wasn’t serving my clients to the best of my ability when I hid this part of myself. That’s when I stopped JUST designing brands and I started helping entrepreneurs honor their truth to build aligned brands and businesses. I started teaching branding through the chakra system and spiritual teachings. Not only was I more lit up, but my clients finally understood their truth, their messaging, and their brand. THEY started to show up in their aligned truth too. And their brands were far more aligned with their inner essence and energetic blueprint when I started being a spiritual teacher first, and a brand designer second. So, if you’re dancing around your truth or you’re trying to show up authentically online, drop in to the truth of who you are and what is dying to be born through you. If you need help doing this, drop a HELP in the comments and I’ll reach out to answer your Qs 😘 at San Luis Obispo, California

You may be implementing all the right strategy in your business, but you’re not seeing results. You’re shaming yourself for not posting everyday, not getting on video, not sending your weekly newsletter (again). You’ve got funnel shame up the wazoo. Holy hustle. This isn’t working!!! Success is about taking aligned action. And alignment doesn’t come from hustle or funnels, but from knowing who you are and WHY you’re here to serve the world. You’re energy speaks louder than words. The way you make people feel is the most powerful tool in your business. You could have the best offer EVER, but if you’re not making people feel like they can trust you through your brand, your messaging, or your presence, you’ll be hearing crickets. Ask yourself: How do you want to make people feel? Your branding, messaging, and offers should be a representation of that answer. I want to make you feel happy, light, joy, and purposeful. Can you feel that though my branding? I hope so 😘 Let me know in the comments how I make you feel 😊 at San Luis Obispo, California

When your logo captures your essence, you can’t help but think it’s the best little thing ever. Here’s my sunshine ray of light rose gold confetti starburst logo for my own business. It’s me to a tee. Do you see yourself in your logo and brand? You should! This way, your clients can see you within your branding too. ✨ #branddesigner #spiritjunkies #soulpreneur

I once heard that if you haven’t prepared for what your success might be like, you’ll never attain it. I believe that when you know where you’re headed, you can reach your goals a lot faster. You have to know HOW you want to FEEL. Why? Law of Attraction. When you know what you desire, you can turn yourself on like a magnet by getting aligned. ⚡️Tune into feelings that feel like how you want to feel in the future ⚡️Make a contract for yourself of who you’ll be when you “reach” your goal ⚡️Follow the fun along the way When you know how to align with the frequency of that which you want, you become unstoppable in receiving it. It’s that simple! In my 90 day program, The Aligned Brand Academy, I teach you how to increase your vibration to heighten your brand magnetism through the chakras. 🌈 Business strategy meets soul strategy. This is how we do it around here. If you love all things business and all things woo woo, drop a ✨ in the comments! #chakraalignment #brandstrategy #soulpreneurs at Santa Barbara, California

Captivating your audience means more than “perfect copy,” a seamless funnel, or having a niche. The vibration of your sound current must radiate not only from the throat chakra, but the HEART chakra 💚 When you know how to turn on the magnetism of the heart and access it’s power to connect and expand your magnetic field, you’ve struck marketing gold. You no longer pause and wonder what the how to share your message or what you’re supposed to say to your audience, or post on Instagram, or speak about on your live video. You turn on. You radiate. You connect. You become a magnetic force for change. When you use the power of your aligned chakra system, you are unstoppable because you understand how to manifest anything you desire by pulling it into your energy field and down through the body into reality. You can put this powerful energetic system to work in your business too! Aligned Brand magic! Next time you speak to your audience, tune into the energy of the heart. Move that loving force up the system and out the throat. Your audience will start to lean in when you turn on your magnetism and uplevel the energetic field you play on. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜✨ #chakraalignment #brandstrategy #soulpreneurs at San Luis Obispo, California

HOW TO TURN THINGS AROUND WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH. Recently, I’ve been tasting a lot of sour lemonade. Mistakes, health problems, car issues, etc. Life has been tossing me some curve balls that are hard to hit. When my life experience isn’t going the way I want, I’m always reminded of my preferences. It’s easy to see that I’m out of alignment when things suck. When you’re in alignment, you can co create anything you desire. Life is good! When you’re out of alignment, ask yourself this: What is it that I really want? And what is it that I really don’t? When your preferences are made clear, you have the power to decide what you want to create. You see, YOU put the momentum behind your manifestations, whether that’s positive or negative in nature. When things are good, more good comes because YOU are feeling mighty fine. When things go south, they go south until YOU decide to turn things around. Often, we don’t realize we can turn things upward until we’ve hit rock bottom. There’s nowhere but up from here, so it’s time to attune your energy towards making life better. You can turn things around at any moment. Life is happening FOR you so you can tune into what you want and create it with the universe. Go forth and feel fabulous! 😘✨ (or turn things around). You’ve got this! at Santa Barbara, California

Do you think you need a logo, but you have no idea where to begin... Here’s a truthbomb that nobody is telling you... What you really seek when you think you want a logo is this: ⚡️An audience that adores you and will pay anything for your services. ⚡️A professional look that shows you’re not a fake or a phony, but an expert. ⚡️A true understanding of who you are, what you do, and how to tell people about it so you don’t feel like a salesy creep. ⚡️A cohesive look and feel that captures your magic (instead of being confused what aesthetic to choose) and magnetized your vibe tribe You may think that having a logo is the first step to building a brand, but it is actually one of the last! What you want more than a logo is a brand presence that captures your high vibe values, captivates your soulmate clients, and converts into the abundance you dream of. I teach soulful entrepreneurs the ins and outs of building a captivating brand in my mentorship program, The Aligned Brand Academy. I help you build and design a brand based on your energetic blueprint. What better way to build an aligned business than through the chakra system? 🌈 In the ABA, you go deep into your energy to brand your essence. You clear the blocks that are holding you back from attracting in your clients. Plus, you get your brand prettied up by me 😘 No more DIY logos on canva that don’t capture your essence. This is a business and brand uplevel, #spiritjunkie style. If you want to learn more about the ABA branding experience, I’m currently enrolling for January 2019 ✨ Start the new year off with a sparkling new brand. Put a ❤️ in the comments if you want more info on the Aligned Brand Academy 😘 And if you still think you just want a logo, I urge you to go deeper. When you align your brand foundations from the start, your business is set up for aligned success. 😘✨💥

I’m just a big dork. You’ll find me with my nose in a self help book more than 50% of the time. The other 50% I’m dancing badly, laughing hysterically, or watching Netflix with my dog Ludacris and @huizar19. I’ll take growth and development with a side of That 70s Show any day of the week. I really believe that the things your passionate about should lead the way. I’m not saying you should watch Netflix all day, but take hints about your purpose from the things you love. For example: I don’t just design logos and call it quits. I infuse self development tools, lots of laughter, and a that 70s show vibe into my work. I do things my way. That’s the power of building an aligned brand and business. What do you absolutely geek out on? Tell me in the comments 👇🏻 at Santa Barbara, California

In 3rd grade I had a secret that I was too afraid to share. I kept it locked inside, because I was too afraid of the opinions of others. You see, early in my life I created the belief that I had to be perfect in order to gain anyone else's love. Approval was the name of the game, and I wasn't sure anyone would approve of my secret, because my secret was my voice. I'd sing in the shower in privacy and belt out Christina Aguilera hits alone in the backyard. The moment anyone else was around, I'd tone it down. I'd hide. I'd shut up. I'd pretend to sing like all the other girls with their high falsetto, when my true voice was deep and powerful for a 10 year old girl. I was different, and I didn't know what to do with that. In my fear I was perfectly content with hiding out. In my truth, I was aching to share my voice. All I wanted was to sing out loud in front of SOMEONE who would love me even if I sucked. I needed to share my voice. I needed to show up. I needed to make it happen. One day at recess I decided I had the courage. I stayed back in the classroom until everyone had gone out to play. I walked up to my 3rd grade teacher on shaky short legs, Mrs. Bautin, and stared at her with gaping scared eyes. And as though some other force of nature was speaking through me, the words came out of my mouth. I asked her if she would listen to me sing. She gave an enthusiastic YES, and she waited.. I remember taking that BIG breath. I knew that this was my moment to be seen, to make it happen, to FINALLY share my gift with another person. And so the words began flowing from my mouth... "God, Bless America... Land that I love!" I sang the entire song and had tears in my eyes. I'd done it. I'd done it for me. And I looked into Mrs. Bautin's eyes and saw unconditional love. I'd shocked myself, and I'd shocked my teacher with my voice. It took me 11 more years to share my voice with the public. I remember my best friend Zach, who had tried to get me to sing with him the entire 1st year I knew him, heard me sing for the first time in my yoga class. I've never seen someone so in shock in my life (there were explicits shared). I knew it was time to... (cont in comments)

Some days you’ve just got to be gentle with yourself. There will be days that are filled with mistakes, disappointment, and trials when you decide to go for it. Building a business and a brand is not always peaches and cream. In fact, some of the hardest days I’ve ever had have been because of my business. Why? Because creating something like a business is a spiritual growth path. All of your shadows and your self sabotaging behaviors are brought to light. This year I’ve made more “mistakes” in my life and business than I ever have before. There are days when I feel I can’t even look in the mirror. There are days when I want to throw in the towel. There are days when I want to hide away. When the journey gets tough, I have no choice but to remember my spiritual tools. Self forgiveness, even when things feel unforgivable. Self love, even when my inner voice is yelling at me. Self study, especially when I keep self sabotaging. Every entrepreneur will have this moment, wondering if it’s all worth it... wondering if they’ll ever make it... wondering if they can make it through... When that moment comes, remember that your value is innate. No amount of failure or self hate can take that away. If this is your calling, keep going. If it’s not, edit and start fresh. You’re bound to make mistakes (it’s how we grow!). Return to your forgiveness and keep moving forward toward your success and your higher consciousness. Loving you, no matter what! 💛 What’s your favorite way to practice self forgiveness? Tell me below 👇🏻 at San Luis Obispo, California

Who would you be if you were confident in your brand? If your online presence was a match to the magical woman that you are in person. You’re here to serve the world and make an impact. Hiding from your audience because you’re too afraid to send them to your website, or you’re too afraid to “go live,” or you’re too afraid to tell people what you really want to do is not bringing your closer to your bigness. You’re probably keeping yourself small, trying to do everything yourself, and attempting to make it all look and feel like the professionals and the influencers you look up to. I want to tell you that the only person you need to look and feel like is YOU. That trying to figure out this whole branding thing on your own is actually taking away from you sharing your own magic. When you have a consistent, cohesive brand that looks and feels like your own energy, you draw in your ideal clients. You show people the value of your work without feeling like you have to prove yourself. You get to be you, and that youness becomes the brand that you bring people into. This is what I live for in my work: helping people discover their own brand energy and aesthetic so they can have the confidence to be the leader they were born to be. So, my advice to you: Stop trying to copy the world around you and start discovering your own brand of magic to share with the world. Your inner essence is the foundation of all the success you seek.

There’s nothing more devastating than hustling all for nothing. When you create offerings that flop, you’re likely having an energetic block in your aligned offerings. True success in your soul biz comes from being in true alignment with yourself. If you’re not having fun when you’re creating your offerings, they won’t sell. Or they will sell and you’ll be miserable, ya feel me? Your offerings must be something your over the moon obsessed with. JOY is the ultimate creator, after all. When you know how to align your offerings to your brand values and to your core audience, you’ll have an offer that sings. In my work, I help spiritual entrepreneurs create an aligned brand and aligned offerings for authentic, joyful, success. Through the seven chakras, I teach them the ins and outs of creating an energetically aligned brand and business. Want more details about the Aligned Brand Academy? I’m currently enrolling for the January 2019 cohort. Drop a heart ❤️ in the comments and I’ll share the details. #theuniversehasyourback #brandingtips

Feeling like crap is an indicator of what you REALLY want. When you’re so out of alignment that you feel like you’re living a life that isn’t even yours, you know it’s time to shift. And the good news: you’re so uncomfortable that you actually do. It’s in the moments in between heaven and rock bottom that we get lost. What’s the motivation when things are “fine”? This is why you must listen to your longing. The dreams and visions that tug on your heart strings are pulling your forward into who you’re meant to be. I help soulful entrepreneurs clarify their vision, mission, and purpose to build an aligned brand so they can serve the world and shine online. I stand for women following their desire and turning that desire into a calling. Who’s with me? Heart it up if you believe you’re meant to live a life you absolutely love. 💛🧡💛

Your website needs to do more than look good. It needs to make your ideal clients say “she’s the one I’ve been looking for!” Building a brand is all about building a home for your soulmate clients to love hanging out in. If you’ve got too much website shame to bear or you dread handing out your outdated business cards, chances are your ideal clients aren’t thrilled when they see those things either. My approach when building your brand and website is to translate your energy into your visual brand. I want people to FEEL YOU when they land on your homepage, your Facebook group, your flier. I want them to feel that same way when they are with you in person. Authenticity is the magical magnet. I have 2 open spots for my Aligned Brand Academy process where I help you align your brand mission, message, offers, and visuals through the chakra system. If you’ve been feeling the pull to updating your visual brand and upleveling your business in 2019, drop a ME in the comments and I’ll share the details with you 😘💛⚡️ #brandingdesign #soulpreneurs #authenticbrand at San Luis Obispo, California
