Weave your power, wisdom, and genius into a thriving business that stands out in a noisy marketplace.
You might think it’s an impossible dream to make good money doing what you love and not be another cookie-cutter “me too” business owner. I mean, you’re feeling the daily drudgery of working with clients that aren’t a good fit for you. And while you wish you could charge more for the awesomeness that you bring, you’re not sure that the clients you’ve got would stick around — even if you wish you could kick ‘em to the curb. Hey, they pay the bills, right?
Or worse, you’re staring at a calendar that has more dust bunnies than appointments, and you sort of read that last paragraph with an envious eye (“I wish I had clients I could kick to the curb!”). More and more you’re feeling like your business just isn’t a true reflection of who you are and what you’re meant to do in the world.
You started out on your business path following your vision and your passion.
And then what happened? How did your business start to feel like drudgery? (Clue: You started following advice that didn’t really resonate with your heart.) And how did you end up in this muddled place of working with clients who aren’t “just right.”
You are a world-changer. You know you’re destined to serve more of the right people in a meaningful way, but you’re not there yet. You look forward to the day when your clients are happily saying “Wow! Yes!” and “More please!” and happily paying you the rates that allow you to maintain and sustain your life and your business (instead of the rates you’re settling for now). You’re ready to build your practice and a tribe of fans and followers that love who you are and what you do for them.
Here’s your wake-up call.
This doesn’t have to be a dream. You just need to infuse your brand story into your marketing strategy to call in the clients that most want to work with you.
A powerful brand story + solid marketing strategy = clients you love.
You need a powerful brand story. Everyone has one, including you. But brand story alone isn’t enough. Your brand story is the foundation for the gravitas and sustainability of your business. So often clients come to me after spending a shit-ton of money on courses and coaching for marketing, but the focus in those courses was on the look and feel (and gizmos and gadgets) instead of on getting really clear about your brand, whom you serve, how, and for how much.
When you’ve got your brand story and marketing strategy in place, you’ll fill your practice with clients you love and who happily pay you for the services you provide.
I learned this the hard way…
Courses can only take you so far. I’m a teacher, too, so that’s saying something! I got tired of seeing clients and colleagues not completing the courses they’d started. They’d start “doing a branding course” but weren’t getting the results I knew were possible for them and their business. If they’d just stayed on track, they could have a powerful, magical brand story that could propel their business to a new level of success.
It happened to me, too.
For years, I hid behind the safety of a website that got the job done, but didn’t truly reflect who I was becoming as a coach, designer, and business owner. I knew how to do the work — heck, I teach it! But it wasn’t until I sat down with my own coach and mastermind team and stayed focused on my brand story that I was able to craft the gorgeous website you see before you, and own the fact that I’m a Priestess who means business! It took effort to guide me to this new evolution.
See, branding isn’t just about fancy websites and graphics.
Or, to put it another way, fancy websites and graphics without a thought-out and complete brand story leave you without the magic you need to sustain your business and attract your meant-to-be clients. Sure the slick photos, fonts, and pretty colors are important, because they convey a story — your brand story. If the brand story is your magic, then your photos, fonts, website, colors, and words are the sparkle and smoke from your creative cauldron. If all you have is a slick website, you’re all sparkle and smoke with no real magic. And who wants that?
Get clear about your story and build a strong foundation with Priestess Your Brand
Priestess Your Brand helps you uncover your powerful brand story and share it with your right clients. It’s a culmination of decades of learning and practical application in my work as a designer and brand guardian for companies of all shapes and sizes. From start-up solopreneurs to corporations, I’ve learned through hard-won experience that it takes more than a fancy website to keep a company in business. It takes a solid brand story and a marketing strategy that weaves in your power, your wisdom — in short — you.
You’re a wisdom- or wellness-preneur. You care deeply about the work you do and about being a force for change and healing for your clients. You connect your heart to theirs, with intention, with every action you take. Priestess Your Brand helps you unmask and uncover the essential components of your business’s brand (that’s the magic!), so that when it comes time to develop your visual brand story, it will feel easy, organic, and integrated to create elements that reflect your heart, your passion, and your wisdom —whether you hire me or someone else to be your designer (or do it yourself).
Priestess Your Brand is a comprehensive, personalized approach to uncovering your brand story.
Unlike courses or group programs, Priestess Your Brand is a one-on-one, fully customized process. Sure, there are touch-points in the process that everyone covers (that’s what makes it a process), but what makes it so magical is that we’ll tailor it to suit your needs.
What does that mean?
- Personal attention every step of the way. Since I only work with a small number of clients at a time, you won’t slip through the cracks.
- Go at your own pace. Most clients can complete the program in 12 weeks, but if you need more time, it’s not a problem. If you want to take the fast track, we can do that, too.
- Branding and Marketing Strategy — Most programs on the market cover one or the other, but Priestess Your Brand gives you both.
I work intimately with you to uncover the elements of your unique brand story, and then we work together to develop the marketing strategy that will most effectively share that story with your world.
The result? Better clients, better income, and a business you love filled with clients who love you right back.
Here's what you get in Priestess Your Brand:
|Ten training modules that cover all the elements of building your stand-out business. The training is delivered over 12 weeks, but you can go at your own pace.|
|Visual and written exercises to help you build the content for your marketing materials: your website, your blog, your social posts, etc. — with caring, mindful, collaborative help from me.|
|Unlimited email support and review of everything you’re creating for your brand — to get all your questions answered and make sure you’re not missing anything and moving forward with confidence.|
|One-on-one support/Q&A calls to answer your questions about each aspect of the teachings.||Four 60-minute calls included||Nine 75-minute calls included|
|Additional support calls as you need them.||$447 each 60-minute call||$447 each 75-minute call|
Bonus — The magical ingredients of a Priestess’s About Page wisdom pdf.
P.S. You can use what you learn for way more than your About page. You’ll end up with a new set of powerful marketing and writing tools that connect you in a resonant and inviting way to your "just-right" clients. You can use these tools for every piece of marketing copy you’ll ever write (down to your tweets and Pinterest/Instagram captions).
“Sounds great, Sue! How much does Priestess Your Brand cost?”
I’m happy to share the pricing with you, but before I do, please remember that I only work with four Priestess Your Brand clients at a time. Because of the intensive, personalized nature of this work, I simply can’t work with more clients than that. That also means that before I accept your investment, we need to connect — and make sure we’re a good fit for each other. If you’ve been struggling to get more of the right clients on your calendar — even with a pretty website — Priestess Your Brand could be a good fit. If you’re ready to talk, click here to find a time on my calendar that works for you.
On that call, we’ll discuss your situation and I’ll make a recommendation based on what I think will best serve you. If we’re not a good fit, I’ll let you know — no hassles, no pressure. If Priestess Your Brand is the right fit, you’ll select the level of support you need, which will determine your pricing:
Priestess Your Brand Done With You — $3,997
Priestess Your Brand Concierge — $6,447
Remember, this isn’t logo design, though I’ve seen big name agencies charge upwards of $5,000 for just a logo. By now, I hope you realize that’s a mistake. A logo is just part of your brand magic. You need a strong foundation, first. That’s your brand story. And you need the marketing strategy that goes along with it. Otherwise the magic you’re creating will fizzle out before you even get started. Priestess Your Brand isn’t smoke and sparkle. It’s the real, powerful, and intentional magic behind creating your powerful brand.

Priestess Your Brand FAQs
How long will Priestess Your Brand take?
That’s entirely up to you. I’ve set this up so you can go at the pace you need. See the package and fee options above.
How do I know if Priestess Your Brand is right for me and my business?
Do you have a wisdom business? Are you in the business of doing good in the world? Have you looked at your current branding and wondered what you might change in order to do a better job of appealing to those you are called to serve? If you’re a solopreneur, small business–owner, healer, maker, artist, coach who’s ready to uplevel your brand by getting really clear about your brand story and be supported as you go, then we should talk. This could be really useful for you. Fill out the form below and we will get a call scheduled.
Will I end up with a new website when we’re done?
You will have done the critical work that many people miss: creating the building blocks and foundation for your marketing (depending on what areas you choose to work on, of course). If you decide to work on your brand story, I will happily include a recommended color palette and fonts for you. Working on your website copy? You’ll develop the building blocks for each page on your site, and then we can work together to flesh out the content. When you complete Priestess Your Brand, you’ll be ready to move through your logo and/or website creation with clarity and ease — whether you hire me or another designer or even DIY.
After Priestess Your Brand, your journey of design and implementation of your visual brand components will be streamlined because you will have already done so much prep work and made many important decisions. For the same reasons, bringing what you’ve worked out in Priestess Your Brand to a designer should result in favorable fees. (They certainly will with me: I give my Priestess Your Brand alumni a lovely discount when they hire me to design and develop their marketing visuals and content. Because of course. Because we’ve already determined many of the key words, images, colors, and concepts that make up your beautiful visual brand story.)
What’s the difference between Priestess Your Brand and Priestess Your Website? Which one do I need?
The difference is huge. And important. If you have already developed your brand story and gotten clear about who you serve and how, then you are ready to dive into the creation and manifestation of your visual brand and your marketing strategy. If that describes you, head on over to Priestess Your Website. If you have not done that foundational work yet, then you are in the right place. Priestess Your Brand supports you to address any of the issues that need to be resolved so your brand story can be a support for your growth and success. If you’re not clear that you’re in the right place, don’t worry! Book a call with me from either this page or PYW, and I will help you decide what’s best for you and in what order. I’m committed to your success. I want you to have a business that beautifully sustains you as you teach and heal and serve.
Will there be homework?
Oh yes. Deep, rigorous, and resonant assignments all designed to help you elicit with clarity the cornerstones of your wisdom- and heart-based marketing. There’s a lot of information that will be delivered in each call. The day after each call, you’ll receive a pdf handout with a summary of that week’s teaching and your homework assignments so that you can immediately start implementing what you’ve learned. You want to set aside some time for this each week. You’re creating the foundation on which your business and its brand will stand. I will collaborate on all the writing assignments with you. You get my attention on every bit of this journey.
What about support between sessions?
You got it! Between calls, we will be collaborating on creating and upleveling your gorgeous brand by email and in shared documents. You drive the pace of our work. When you have a question, send me an email. I’ll get back to you on my weekly client email day (or sooner if you’ve let me know this is urgent). And when you’re doing homework, shoot me a notification that you have something for me to look at, which I will also do on my weekly collaboration day (and again, sooner if you need it). You’ll get my eyes and complete attention on what you’re creating. I’ll make comments, ask questions, and suggest edits.
Will the sessions be recorded?
Yes, every Zoom call will be recorded, and you will be able to listen to or download the audio of the meeting by the following day.
Will there be additional costs using Zoom?
There is no cost to join a Zoom meeting from a computer, smartphone, or tablet. If you participate by phone, it is possible that you will incur long distance charges.
What technology will I need?
The Zoom platform works a lot like Skype, but in my experience seems to be much more stable. The free Zoom software runs on Macs and PCs and on smartphones and tablets using Android, iOS (Apple), or Blackberry operating systems. You will receive instructions on setting up the software after you sign up.
Do I need a webcam?
That’s up to you. I know that our connection will be even deeper when we can see each other, but if you’d rather participate without video, that’s fine. Even if you participate from a computer or device with a camera, you can always turn the video off.
How do I know if Priestess Your Brand is right for me?
The best way is to fill out the form below, and I will read what you write and contact you to set up a fee-free call. We’ll stand shoulder-to-shoulder and look at your unique business and brand, and whether this program could be right for you. If I don’t think I can help you, I’ll happily suggest other resources for you.
Thanks so much for your application. I’m looking forward to reading what you’ve written. I’ll get in touch with you right away with a link so you can schedule a no-strings call by Zoom or phone. Let’s see what’s meant to be!
