AARON FISH, ExECUTIVE CONSULTANT
FOUNDER, TRESTLE HOSPITALITY CONCEPTS
Michelle is super easy to work with, very knowledgeable about building a personal brand, and her approach was very much a collaborative one.
She took what was basically a nice online resume and helped me create a powerhouse personal brand and strategy to create and execute it.
I considered a few other personal branding consultants, but none of them seemed to have what I felt was the most important attribute - authenticity. To this day whenever I talk to Michelle, I don't feel like just a client. And I think that approach is why Michelle is one of the best out there. So if you need help with your brand and content, you are on the right LinkedIn profile. Michelle is amazing at what she does and I continue to recommend her to professionals whenever I can!

Stepping Out Isn't Hard With the Right Plan
My signature system, the Visible Brand Authority® Blueprint, takes a stair-step approach to finding your clarity, building momentum and winning opportunities by sharing your expertise and insights online.
The Visible Brand Authority Blueprint®
Internal clarity comes from knowing who you are, what you want to be known based on your core beliefs, values, goals, personality, expertise and mission.
External clarity is about knowing your people — your audience persona and their needs and power partners to support and grow your visibility and reach.
To stand out you can't blend in. Professional clarity differentiates you into a "category of one" to uniquely and confidently stand out as the go-to in your industry.
Your brand's visual, verbal and visceral aspects need to be showcased on your own platform, online profiles as well as with signature processes and marketing collateral.
Content is the fuel to your personal brand. Your core content impact areas will share and showcase your expertise to align with your "known as" brand positioning.
Leveraging shared, owned and earned media will amplify your message with industry podcasts, brand partnerships, presentations, press mentions and PR.
Your brand never stops. Accelerate by exploring new ventures, taking bolder steps and saying yes to bigger goals to build trust and land bigger opportunities.
Let's Get You Out of Hiding and Into the Spotlight
I know first hand how hard it is to find someone to help you unlock and translate your unique expertise into new opportunities. Here's how I can support you:
Understanding the unique role you play in the marketplace can feel daunting. I take you through a proven positioning system in terms that you and others can easily grasp.
When you're so close to what you do, it's difficult to find a clear and cohesive perspective. I walk my clients through my branding framework with targeted questions to ensure objectivity.
Getting clear on the value you provide is only one half of the journey. Enjoy an easy process to successfully position and showcase your expertise and strategic ways to be seen online to impact more people.
Without a roadmap for your branding success, it's easy to spin your wheels. Get a proven system to advance your business goals and land industry opportunities to accelerate your growth.
