We can hardly believe it’s already MID-2013! Where has the year gone!? We are so excited for the launches we have coming up. Our clients have worked so hard and have truly transformed their brands into powerful, authentic businesses inside and out.  We can’t wait to reveal 15 new powerful brands to you very soon!

Lara and I were going to complete the year with just three new brands, but after much prayer, we had a lightbulb moment!  We’re going to create FIVE NEW BRANDS … in a very special format. We’ll be taking the fall/winter holidays off and Lara has a magazine coming out in November, so we only have from July to September to complete these new brands.  Our usual branding process takes 12 weeks, but we’ve designed an Express Powerful Branding Process for five clients who are ready to work hard and make their new brands happen ASAP!

The total cost for this Express Powerful Branding process is $6000.  Most of our clients choose our $10,000 Tier, but we won’t have time to complete five new brands at that level, so we’ve created this simplified faster option!

DETAILS: You must reserve your space by July 1st so you have time to complete your PowerWork (branding homework). We will begin with Power Sessions to kick off the branding process for each client on July 18th. We’ll work together for 8 exciting weeks to get your new brand ready to fly and then you will begin your site design with the web team of your choice (we have some great recommendations!).

Again, this is only for those who are ready to work hard and make big things happen.  If you want to launch a new brand before the end of the year, this is your chance!

To reserve your new brand and for details, email Kristin, our amazing project manager.

Make it happen!


Emily + Lara

P.S. Come see us at Making Things Happen in October!  20 of the 60 seats are already sold!

Hooray for 2013!
