Brand, You know it’s true

My husband’s go-to playlist is the 80s. Yesterday Milli Vanilli’s “Girl You Know It’s True,” came on. The song, with its questioning of love, sparked a thought in me about our relationships with the brands we hold dear.

Just like in the song, we often find ourselves wondering if the brands we support truly have our best interests at heart.


In this sea of brands vying for attention, the key to truly standing out is embracing your unique essence.

It’s not about mimicking the success of others but about shining in your own light.

Here’s how you can do just that:

  1. Share Books That Touched Your Heart:
    When you share books that have genuinely moved you or shaped your thinking, you’re offering a piece of your heart to your audience. It builds a bridge of trust and connection.
  2. Speak From Your Heart:
    Let your true passions be the guide in what you talk about. This authenticity attracts people who resonate with your genuine enthusiasm and insight.
  3. Value in Every Insight:
    Your experiences, no matter how simple or complex, have value. Sharing these insights openly can illuminate the path for others in a meaningful way.
  4. Guide Your Clients With Heart:
    Offer advice and knowledge in a way that’s easily understood, aiming to lighten the load for your clients. Your genuine desire to see them thrive will foster deeper connections.


  1. What are the core values that pulse at the heart of your brand?
    Reflecting on what matters most to you is the first step in aligning your brand with your heart.
  2. What makes your brand uniquely yours?
    Understanding what sets you apart allows you to shine brightly in your space.
  3. How can you ensure your brand’s voice and message are consistent across all platforms?
    Consistency in your message nurtures trust and loyalty.
  4. In what ways can you engage with your audience that feels like a warm hug?
    Think about how you can make each interaction feel personal and caring.

Remember, dear friends, your brand is a reflection of your heart and your vision for the world. By staying true to your essence and connecting deeply with those you serve, you’re not just building a brand; you’re making a difference.

Let’s pour our hearts into our work and watch as it blossoms beautifully.

I wish you success and joy on this beautiful path of entrepreneurship.
