build a brand
this is be creative
Craft meaningful brand foundations that give you crystal clarity and the confidence to step into and show off your brilliant business – even if you are not a designer
imagine a business that makes you proud every day
When you step into your power as a female founder, great things happen.
- You are 100% confident about your mission and truly aligned with your values, your brand messaging becomes crystal clear and laser-focussed.
- People understand you.
- Work becomes a pleasure and is second nature.
- You show up consistently online and offline, unafraid and unapologetic.
- You are no longer afraid to be seen or heard.
You magnetize your ideal clients. You generate more leads. There is less resistance. You get paid more.
I want this for you and I know that it is possible.
to get to that place of dreams doesn’t come easy
The problem is that you’re:
Working in your business not on your business
In love with the idea of a thriving business, but not in love with your actual business.
Overwhelmed at how much content you need to create and you wish it could be easier.
Confused about what to do to build your brand
Dreams of a smooth-running business have been wishful thinking for longer than you’d care to admit. You have a grand vision that is still out of reach. And you’ve set lofty targets that keep missing the mark.
Your brand is not broken but it feels ‘a bit off’
You have created a brand but it is inconsistent and scattered
You need help honing your target market and making your presence felt
You are plagued with nagging doubt that you are not making the right choices for your business.
You accept work that is not truly aligned, because you’re not sure what you want and you’d rather count the ‘#win’.
It’s time to make a change
And translate your ideas into strategies that work.
want to walk this road together?
I know that creating a brand strategy is HARD to do on your own.
When you are close to your business all day long, doing all the things and trying to make progress, it’s hard to work on your own foundational strategies.
It’s the kind of thing that gets moved to the bottom of the list for other “more pressing” things.
You feel like there’s never enough hours in the day and you have no clear idea on what is going to give your business clarity & momentum – so you just skip it altogether.
But a well-defined brand strategy can transform your business. Things can be drastically different for you with a little structure and accountability.
That’s all you need to stop feeling overwhelmed and start making progress in your business.
If that sounds like the kind of change you’re looking for, then this invitation was made for you.
what if I told you that the answers are within you?
WOULD YOU BELIEVE ME?
Your personal brand is a culmination of your life experiences, skills, passions and values, and it’s something you can build from the ground up.
When your brand embodies the values that matter most to you, then you will create a company that you love – and something that people can trust and believe in.
In a world where there are so many choices, your brand can be a powerful tool to help you stand out.. It takes more than just a great product or service to build a brand you love. It takes confidence and belief in your ability to succeed.
You don’t need to do this alone though. There’s no greater feeling than being supported and held accountable as you move along your journey.
build a brand you love is a new coaching program

here’s what my clients have to say:
KATE SHAW, SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER
“The most valuable piece of advice I received was to be brave, be myself and let that shine through my branding. Julia encouraged me at every stage and now I am ecstatically happy with my branding. Lots of people have commented and said how much they love it and how it is much more me.”
CHARLOTTE SPEAK, STRENGTHS COACH
“For me this was about aligning lots of different elements of my business. We’re conditioned to think we need to know everything and do all the things, but that’s not true. Working with Julia will be the experience and motivation you’re looking for.”
LUCY CRITCHLEY, VA
“I feel unstoppable! My brand started off as ‘just me’ and now it feels like the sky’s the limit.
Working with Julia has changed how I see my business (and how I see myself, if I’m honest).”
STEPHANIE CHARD, VA
“Julia was an absolute joy to work with. Her knowledge, patience, style and passion for branding really shone through. I feel really excited and more confident about my brand now. The process really helped me with the clarity of what I want to achieve with it.”

the value-added results my clients talk about:
NICOLA WYLLIE, INTERIOR ARCHITECT
“The investment isn’t just in logos, colours etc, it is in saving yourself so much time and potential agony trying to do it yourself. Also when you see your brand come to life in Julia’s hands it gives you such a boost as to what your brand can achieve.”
HANNAH BROOKE, PHOTOGRAPHER
“My brand is now really starting to attract the clients I want to work with. I’ve booked some really beautiful weddings recently with clients who don’t quibble over the price and who understand how much work I put into capturing their day beautifully. Any investment in your brand is worth it as it will mean you get the clients you want at the prices you want to charge!”
SUSIE DAVIS, FAMILY FLOW APP
“If you’re pondering the benefits of investing in getting your branding right and /or whether Julia is the right person then STOP. Firstly it’s a minimal outlay, even for a tiny business and secondly Julia will provide you with a wonderful, uplifting brand that feels right TO YOU.”
it’s time to sit down with an honest cuppa, and reflect…
Stop wasting time and money trying to grow your business without a brand built on actual strategy.
You can’t market anything well until you know what it is you’re trying to market.
That’s why I recommend starting with brand strategy first.

how it feels to work with julia
HOLLY CURRY, DESIGNER & COACH
“Even when I felt like I was being a bit of a nightmare making my mind up Julia was patient, understanding and nurturing. She really helped me to pull my ideas out of my head and also gave me space to digest and ruminate at each stage. I felt a real sense of control and involvement in the whole process.
This isn’t about logos, it’s about clarity, confidence, support, joy and focus. Julia has been an unmeasurable support, guide and shining light during the whole process.”
ELISE TOBIAS, BIRTHING PROFESSIONAL
“I love it – I am really excited to roll it out and see everything come to life across all my platforms. I am so grateful to how easy and enjoyable you made the process.”
JOANNE FENTIMAN, REIKI PRACTITIONER
“I didn’t understand why I was so hesitant about doing my website. Through discussion with Julia, I realised it was important for me to get the branding in place first. The colours and designs inspire me for content and how I want the website to look and feel. This feels like the beginning of something very special. I’ve made a massive step forward.
Julia was very patient and never put on pressure. I like to take my time and it felt a very natural and relaxed process.”
frequently asked questions
Q. I’m worried that it’s not the right time or fit for my business
A. This program was designed to be used at any stage of your business because as you grow and evolve, your brand will need to be refined and realigned.
Whether you’re just starting out or have been in business for a while, now is the perfect time to define your brand strategy because it lays the foundations of your business development.
Q. How much time will I need to commit to getting the results I need for my business?
A. You’ll need 4 weeks to work though the programme from start to finish, and it goes without saying, the more focus you put in – the more you’ll get out.
Q. How is this program different from other brand courses out there?
A. Well, where else will you get a chance to work with yours truly?! Seriously though, I’m totally invested in your success, which is why I’ll be with you every step of the way over our month-long road trip. I’ve packaged all my big-brand experience for clients like Hobbs and Figleaves into a service I can share with personal brands like yours. You may have tried to DIY your logo on a free template site. Or fallen down the rabbit hole of Canva, playing with pretty colours and images. Building a consistent brand is far more than just a logo and I will show you the exact steps you need to create a stand-out brand and market your business with impact in a way that you and your customers will love.
Q. But I already have an established brand! How do I know if this program will help me?
A. This is where you need to reflect and ask yourself if your brand is in alignment with your business as it stands right now. No matter where you are in the life cycle of your business, it’s likely that over time your goals will change, your priorities will shift, your products and services will evolve and your positioning may change. Your branding needs to be refreshed periodically to stay current.
i’m a coach that cares
Your success and positive experience on this program matters to me. I have poured my heart and soul into creating a solid brand building and confidence coaching program for you and your business.
If however in the first 7 days of the program you find that it is not what you were expecting, then I will give you your money back.
All I ask is that you show me the work you have done and give me your honest appraisal. This is my Beta launch and I want to make sure I’m doing everything I can to deliver a valuable and transformational service.
