Build Your Brand in 5 Minutes

I am looking to build my brand a little and have been working on a new program with any ounce of spare time (this week, there hasn’t been much free time). This is something as a business owner we are asked to do from time to time.

Because I find it so incredibly helpful, I thought I would share one of my favorite exercises. What I love about it is it helps me to develop my brand in less than 5 minutes.

The exercise asks you to set aside 5 minutes of your time and to be very lean in the words you use. This task of limiting the words you use, helps to fine tune your understanding of your business.

So, once you have 5 minutes set aside, being to think of how you would answer the following question with free association using ONLY ONE WORD. The first word that comes to mind, even if it makes no sense right now, might be incredibly helpful later on, so don’t throw it away.

(you might want a piece of paper and crayon, pencil, pen, marker… you get my point, as well.)

And if you are like me and tend to break “rules,” try limiting yourself to no more than 3 word phrases.

Now, you might find it doesn’t take 5 minutes, that’s okay too. Answer the question several times and see if you can find a new way to talk about your offering, without using lots of words.

The question:

“What do you do?”

What is Purpose?

When I decide to live my purpose, I can

I just taught the first class of my second cycle of Birthing the Business Owner: a Spiritual Approach to Business Administration and am feeling so incredibly blessed by this work. It is an honor to witness the birth of such powerful healers, creators and dreamers!

I realized at the end of the class, how much teaching allows me to grow into myself. I am asked to reflected on my own personal work and have been able to discover wisdom in the students, who as teachers themselves.

This is a victory, a release of long held systems of beliefs which no longer serve me. And releasing these stories has been transformative for my soul. I am finally about to embrace the truth of my own sacred work, and by supporting theses students, I have opportunities to learn and grow.

One thing I tell people all the time is that they are meant to have these visions, and aspirations. It is foundational for your purpose in life. And when you start to release other’s expectations of what success should look like, you can start to embrace what your own success can be like.

Here is where the magic is born. When you live your own success story, you can start to be the person you always thought would would be, and you can stop being the person you were trying to be.

This is your purpose. To integrate the beat of your blood and heart and the mirror to your soul, into the daily practice of your live. And living your purpose, is the gateway to activation and truth.

Growth is Change

Change is a beautiful thing, it happens all around us in the world: people, places, trees, seasons…

But where does this fit in to your business? Business is a living organism which thrives on effective change.

So what is “effective” change? These are shifts which correlate to growth and relevancy, allowing your business to build a personal connection with your customers.

This connection provides a doorway to understanding who you are as a business owner and the type of customer you feel called to work with. In traditional concepts, we call this connection your brand and “type of customer” your market, sometimes subsets are called niche or segments.

You don’t need to have a vast background in business or communications, but having a basic understanding of your market and your brand can help you to make optimal decisions around changes to your business practices. When we know who we want to work with and who we are, we can start to determine where we want to go, and if we can have our customers join us. Growth is a measure of change.

Young businesses need time to develop their personality almost like a toddler or child. Typically a business needs about a year of startup time before they are ready to really bring the brand forward globally. During that time, they may slightly adapt or drastically change their image. I often advise clients not to invest significantly in branding services/materials until at least 6 months (12 optimally) of a business, especially print materials.

Many people put a lot of focus into what their image is, without the same investment in their product or service. I am a firm believer that having healthy bones will be more sustaining than a closet full of fancy clothes, which make you feel good but are not as long-lasting as the foundation.

Playing with your brand/image is certainly a great pick-me-up during the ruts, when we start to second guess ourselves. You know, those “what the hell was I thinking” kind of moments? I like to think of it as though I were a kid with paints, free to explore my ideas.

Early on, this is a great way to discover your creative side. It becomes more challenging as your client base grows, as they build a bond with the image/brand. Not that established businesses don’t ever change an image, but it takes a more calculated approach so not to alienate customers.

So if you are a start-up, I say play a little, before it becomes harder to explore and figure out who you really are.

Dear Universe – Are you ready for growth?

Dear Universe,

I am open to receiving the next source of financial sustainability and personal growth. Ideally, it will fill my being with unbridled passion and help me to manage my household budget with abundant ease. Additionally, while working with amazing heart-centered souls, I will also have a flow of free time so that I might enjoy the pleasures of my life and gifts of my children’s youth.

This direction and manifestation will bring me to serve in this lifetime my highest purpose.

Bring me to clarity; bring financial and joyous opportunity to me; allow me to be supported by the divinity of all through the work I do in this world.

May my spirit serve to bring your vision into this world by the work I do and the people I meet. May my financial success be in alignment with my service to my community. May my vision be your vision.

Bless me with courage and humility. Bless me with abundance of joy, service, and financial stability. Bless me with all I need to be in this moment of existence right now.

I am ready to be held by, cared for and directed by spirit.

In service,

Alisa

There it is — a simple (or is it) request to the universe to provide me with all that is necessary to be in service to my life.

I recommend this exercise, it is a simple way to align yourself closer to the path. You can begin to see what is possible, what is reasonable, and what will awaken the passion.

It requires you to be willing to meet the growth with an open heart, as spirit comes full force at times. The trust of surrender can be scary, especially when it comes to business and finances. This part of our identity is not separate from our faith or connection with spirit. At the heart of faith is the belief we will be provided for by spirit (or goddess, life, god, universe, … you pick the word that fees right for you). Even without belief in a “god,” we still need to believe that we can be provided for with work, opportunity or our community.

The greatest business strategy you can invest in, is to trust that you deserve to be provided for, because you are divinely perfect and worthy of this support.

 

Time to Dream

I have been going none stop since I had the vision to create the Wild Dreamer business model, completely charged with the excitement I have for possibility. In reality I have always been one to work hard and play hard, but have found a kinder way to move through life in the past year.

So, when I found myself grinding my teeth and rubbing my eyes in order to get one more jobs done, I decided to just stop. I have come to understand the difference now between riding the charge from inspiration and muddling through the process just to finish the task. Both have a place, but the truth is I am not in a sprint here. This is my life’s work, which means I can take time to cultivate it just so if I need to.

However, my old habits of “suffering to succeed” sometimes trickle back into my work flow, causing me to forget this new pace and model of operating. You see, in order to be a dreamer you need time to dream. It is that simple.

So, instead of chasing the last word or budget analysis, I move now into the dreamscape where I shall dance with the mystery of my life’s work.

Do you make time to dream? To remember the joy and ease of your passion?
