Kathy Bass, aka The Branding Lady(r), has always been a free spirit, but her journey didn’t truly begin until she was faced with a “Brand Identity Crisis” in 2010. She held 3 degrees, resourceful attitude, can do mindset, but also a fear of public speaking along with an unanswered question: “Who do you want to be when you grow up?”
After attending dozens of conferences, reading countless books, analyzing client success stories and conducting interviews, she now knows what works, what doesn’t, and that any endeavor must start with branding.
Branding, a commonly skipped step, is the reason why so many people struggle to see results or get noticed. It doesn’t have to be this way. This is the place to dive into the key elements to help you discover your own branding and business success from real personal experience.
