Launch & Build Your Online Business ~ The Right Way!



  Hey unicorn, heey! Welcome to the Digital CEO Revolution. I’m Courtney, aka the Brandista. For 15+ years, I’ve worked with multi-million dollar brands getting their marketing messages, seen, heard, and experienced in/on radio, television, magazines, digital and social media.

With my expertise and network, I’m obsessed with helping 
solopreneurs and new online entrepreneurs build authority for their personal brands, grow their email lists, foster online communities, create digital offers and confidently sell their products and services online.  In The Digital Age, there is unlimited potential for influencers, authors, bloggers, writers, speakers, coaches, creatives, change-makers and consultants (and inspiring ones) who use their personal brands: Their unique story, experiences, talents, and style to build thriving online businesses.
It’s never been a more promising time to use your authenticity, voice and life vision to bring your dream business to life using Miss World Wide Web. Say bye-bye to your cubicle days of daydreaming about your dream business and instead… 
Imagine waking up morning after morning with the awe of your energetic three-year-old self, blissfully motivated and fulfilled by the work you do. Who cares if it’s Monday or Friday, you’re living yo’ best life. Daily you’re making decisions that support the dreams you have for your life and represent the best of what you have to give in the world. Today was spent in your Betty Boop flannels creating content, ordering inventory, creating your next dope online course or planning an oh-so-awe-inspiring women’s retreat. Tomorrow you’ll gloss your lips with Ruby Woo lipstick perfectly lined with your Cherry liner, get Beyonce fly and board a G6.
You’ve translated your experiences, talents, life story, skill set and or passion into a personal brand with authority. You’ve leveraged your brand to get your brand message seen and heard from your own platform, and that platform is the digital hub that provides your oh-so-nice paycheck. Your business and life reflect the best of who you are and hints to the wildest potential of who you’re becoming. Your soul is on fire. You’ve found real meaning in the business you’ve built from your laptop.
You bask in the flexibility, finances, and freedom to fully express yourself and share your unique gift to make the social impact you once only dreamt of. You’re a dreamer and a doer. You believe in yourself, packaged your craft to sell (services or products), straightened your crown, grabbed your cape and saved your own dreams. You’ve built a rock-solid business foundation, implemented the right systems, sustainable strategies and created an intentional and profitable business.
You provide hundreds, thousands or more people that special thing you’re uniquely prepared to do. Do you get it? I get it! You’ve prayed for it, you can feel it, but one thing isn’t clear. 
 You don’t have a trusted roadmap, a reliable method with clear directions on how to get there. You don’t belong to a community of other Revolutionaries (a tribe of other Digital CEO’s ) to support and inspire you along the way.  I’ve been there (way too long), but that’s why NOW– I’m here to show you, teach you, or help you step-by-step with what’s needed to transform your vision into a thriving business.
And, running a six or seven figure online business isn’t for the faint at heart. Six and seven figure profits won’t be rolling in 30, 60 or 90 days out (I’m sorry Y’all). BUT it’s happening every day for people less qualified than you with a real business, valuable products or services, a viable market, scalable automation, and a trusted strategy for selling online.
Sprinkle that with lots of courage, consistency, hella hustle and an unwavering belief in yourself and you can ABSOLUTELY do it too! That I know for sure. You can certainly transform your life and frankly; transform, help or inspire hundreds, thousands or more of the people you identify you’re committed to serving.  

 Believe It. Package It. Brand It.   Market It. Sell It. Rinse & Repeat.

I know you just need a little girlfriend guidance and support. I’ll help you find clarity, put the right business foundation in place, build a powerful personal brand, implement systems, and package your products or services to sell online. Then you’ll confidently market and sell the heck out of them using my secret sauce marketing and sales strategies. This girl ain’t gonna let the last two decades I’ve spent building a career in advertising and digital sales, marketing and brand building not to help my tribe level all the way up!!!  I’m here to support you in claiming your piece of the $107 billion dollars online teaching industry or the $532 billion annually in e-commerce sales the US projects to hit.

Oh- and we’ll do it in a way that is truthful and authentic to you and the peeps you’re committed to serving (NO sleazy marketing stunts- overinflated promises or aggressive selling). I can’t with all the manipulating and abusive tactics! We’ll find a niche of people who want and appreciate what you have to offer. We’ll build your business and brand with your own personal style and messaging, and you’ll market and sell it with integrity.

We’ll shower your niche with an incredible customer experience using all our secrets and magic. We’ll beautifully package your offers to those people looking for it, and serve them up on a platinum platter with Swarovski (ish)  crystal-encrusted handles (BLING). And after a lot of heart, hustle, and consistency from you, before you know it, you’ll be enjoying the benefits of all those Amex cards swiping to buy your products, courses, services or membership programs.
