Shine Your Light
“It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
~ Marianne Williamson
Creating your very own personal brand is all about finding that light inside of yourself and letting it shine, so you can light up the world and inspire others to shine their light just by being who you are.
You started your business because you desire more than a 9-5 job and you know deep in your heart you are called to answer your true calling. But if you don’t know how to show the world who you truly are by an authentic soulful brand, it doesn’t matter how many certificates you have, how much experience you got, how talented you are at what you do… your gift, your talent, your message, your passion cannot be found and heard.
When it comes to how people perceive you and why they choose to buy from you or work with you, 80% is based on who you are and how you show up in the world. People are looking for brands they can connect with these days. Brands which reflect who they are or who they aspire to be. It’s who you are that inspires other people to say yes to who they are. It’s who you are that creates connection and trust with your audience. That’s the only way to link our soul to theirs and form a lasting bond. And that’s one of the most beautiful gifts we can give to ourselves and to our audience.
Answer Your Soul’s Calling
“In the beginning, I just wanted to find a designer. I found someone much more valuable in the process - ME.”
It all starts within. Personal branding is about working out who you are and what makes you different in a way that resonates with your ideal client.
I see lots of new coaches make a costing mistake when they first launch their “brand”: they go to a website or graphic designer before they figure out the foundations and essence of their personal brand. It's a very costing mistake because they end up with a brand that is not them, a website that doesn't resonates with them and a business that doesn't attract clients. They shy away from showing the website and brand to others, cannot book clients, lost confidence in themselves and wonder what's wrong with them.
There’s nothing wrong with you. You just need to step into that authenticity and figure out your personal brand and what's makes you unique in a way that resonates with your ideal clients. When you do that, it's like a magic that changes everything.
Designing your brand starts with the inside job first. It's not just a logo or website. I work with my clients through a process to design their brand. And the first step is to discover your brand essence that answers your soul’s calling and get crystal clarity of your brand message that speaks to the heart of your ideal client.
"What lights you up?
What are you called to do?
What message are you meant to share?"
"Elva is amazing! I loved talking with her. She is SO knowledgable about branding and about what makes you stand out as a coach in your field. Elva helped point out strengthsthat i didn't realize I had and gently guided me toward putting more of myself into my brand. I WAS so afraid! to be fun in my brand but she encouraged me to, knowing I would provide the best service and attract the absolute perfect clients for me then. I walked away so giddy from the call, I was laughing and rushed straight for my work better than ever! Thank you Elva. She is just incredible, so elegant and a true professional/expert in branding. Meet her soon."
— Amanda Neill, Birth of Venus Coaching
"I loved my personal branding session with Elva, she really listened and understood my vision for my business and brand. Where I was struggling on being able to communicate my message and what my brand was all about, Elva got me feeling super clear and re-inspired really quickly! She also got me so clear on my ideal client, which I thought I knew but was being far too general, and deep down I had felt there was something not in alignment in terms of how I was marketing myself and my message to my clients but I couldn't figure out why. Feeling out of alignment was causing me to massively procrastinate and self doubt my personal brand for ages, Elva got me to see my dream client from a completely different angle and this brought sooo much clarity instantly that I just wouldn't have gotten from trying to figure it out myself, what 'felt' like something was missing and how I wasn't completely being true to me in my message and branding, just the simpleness of Elva getting clarity on my dream client has completely shifted how I feel, and it feels like the missing jigsaw piece to my personal brand, I feel more excited and more clear on my mission! It has massively removed the self-doubt and got me really clear on my product offering and brought back my passion and drive to fully commit to my brand and serve the people I'd love to serve as I'd been starting to doubt whether my personal brand was even 'me' anymore! Elva is such a lovely person to speak to, I instantly felt comfortable on our call, personally connected to her and that she really got me and my mission, I felt so supported in just one session, and she made things seem so easy and effortless after trying to figure things out by myself. She made me realise, even if you think you're super clear on your personal brand, you really need someone else to help you craft it, there are always blind spots you can't see, and having a super clear brand helps remove any alignment blocks! As soon as you feel in alignment you feel more passionate and have less resistance to taking action in your biz!
-- Uma Kangai, Dream Life Coaching"
"After my consultation with Elva I had clarity and answers to questions that had been bothering for a month about certain aspects of how I should represent myself. I had a clear plan on what to do and was motivated and excited to make those changes. Now, a couple weeks later, I feel so much more authentic in how I communicate and present myself to my audience. Thank you Elva!"

Beauty is the light of your soul
“Beauty is a necessity, not a luxury.”
As your brand stylist and designer, it’s my passion and job to take the beautiful, soulful message of who you are and find the most beautiful and elegant way to bring it all to life, to channel those unique qualities and characteristics into the key assets of your personal brand and all the ways you express this in the world in a simple, chic and beautiful way - everything from the brand color, fonts.. to website, social media, business materials.
Beauty is the light of your soul. I adore beautiful things and nothing brings me more joy than creating a beautiful brand presence for my clients that lights up the soul.
As a female entrepreneur building a business online, your online presence is your haute couture show; your personal branding is that haute couture attire. Everything I do exude style, elegance and timelessness, because these are a necessity, not a luxury. The visual expressions create a vivid set of associations in the hearts and minds of your audience. It’s the gut feeling, the mental image, the first words that come to mind when your audience hear your name, see your logo, land on your website.
"What’s the feeling you want to create in the hearts and minds of your audience?
"How can you channel your best inner world to the outer world so everyone you meet can feel your passion and inspiration?"
It makes my heart sing when the seeing the beautiful inner world of my client Angelica being matched with the beautiful outer world presence.
My client Lisa love working with people and finding out what makes them shine and just feel good. Her brand message “HEALTH, WELLNESS AND FREEDOM” reflects her true passion and what lights her up.

It was an absolute pleasure working with her on my brand and I am really looking forward to working with her more in the future. Elva will help you to elevate your brand to new heights and appeal to your dream clients. I cannot recommend her enough."
— Louise George, Success Coach - Bodhi Babes
"Elva is very classy and professional! She's very knowledgeable about colors, textures, and styles, and she helps to give insight and clarity to what different things (like colors) can represent for your audience. Discussing my own options, desires, and goals with her helped me to step forward with full confidence in representing myself online! :) And to top it off, Elva is just adorable. <3 I would highly recommend working with her if you need clarity and guidance in regards to your branding!!"

Brand In Full Bloom
“Live on brand - Be Your Brand In Every Moment & Every Interaction.”
You want to create your personal brand in a way that you can fully model and own, not just today but year after year because you are your brand. You want to live your brand, be your brand in every moment & interaction without feeling like a fraud or putting a mask which just isn’t you.
You probably already heard the clichéd statements “Be authentic” or “Just be you.” by many personal brand experts. While I do agree that being authentic and being who you are in your personal brand, I believe that in order to allow you to lead and make the impact you want to see in the world, your personal brand is more than “Just be you”. I believe Personal branding is all about becoming the best version of yourself without changing your core values or the essence of who you are. It’s about working on our light, accentuating and magnifying the best of who you are, and stepping into your role as messenger and owning the qualities that allow you to shine your light and inspire others.
Be visible, be courageous. Take a stand for what you believe in and live your message. Be visible with yourself and your tribe and create a brand experience that light up the soul.
There is nothing more beautiful than going on a personal growth journey to become who you truly are, share your unique talents and message and step into your light for the world to see.
When you are willing to walk the talk, practice what you preach, and model your work in the world, you inspire other people to do the same.
Paradoxically, personal branding is about you but at the same time it isn’t. The more you put yourself out there, the less it becomes about you. Instead, it’s about what you represent. And those who are willing and ready and will accept the call to adventure that only you can offer.
It’s then and only then that you can start to create a massive trust and credibility, make a huge impact, a huge income and really change people’s lives -- not just with what you do but with WHO YOU ARE.
"How can you live your brand so that you can inspire your audience into action and create the change I want to see in the world?
How can you live your message and model your work so that your audience can see the possibilities for themselves when they say yes to work with you?"
"Working with Elva has helped me evolve my brand and the customer experience I wish my clients to enjoy. I’m now clear on the 4 steps to a consistent brand voice and how to implement my brand voice moving forward.
I’m better able to connect my branding to my ideal client and am excited to plan my next photo shoot with this in mind. If you are struggling with your brand and need trustworthy guidance, direction and support, I highly recommend you seek out the expertise of Elva!"
