Ready to redirect your unique skills, experience, abilities, and expertise into your own high-value consulting business...
...but struggling to get past your imposter syndrome?
I get it.
I'm a level 9-billion introvert and I could compete in overthinking as an olympic sport!
If you're anything like me, it's tough to get past the "what if's" and actually launch your consulting business when you know it's totally reliant on your abilities.
It's even tougher when you have a lot of experiences, expertise, and education but, you just don't know what to consult on!
You know you've got a lot of value to give. You prove it every time someone close to you asks your advice.
But, it's a different story when you need to charge for it.
I'm here to teach overthinkers, introverts, and aspiring strategists the
facilitation tools, and
...that turn endlessly variable client inputs into high-power, client-specific strategy.
You won't find members of my programs stuck producing "deliverables," you'll find them adding value, clarifying business landscapes, and creating positive change for their clients.
And that's my simple goal. Get you past your fear and overwhelm, do away with your doubt, and let you rely on the included tools, scripts, and assets to support you taking those steps and actually feel what it's like to be a strategy consultant.
Yes, you'll deploy this process with clients for years to come. It's the most comprehensive brand sprint process available today.
But, it's been designed so you can run it the first time as easily and confidently as the one-hundredth time.
Working from my home in Vancouver (sometimes at my house and sometimes from Starbucks!)...
On the road in hotel rooms (I spend a lot of time at conferences and workshops)...
And on vacation with family in Australia, Paris, Nashville, and Vegas...
Will you finally launch your dream consultancy?
Will you run strategy sprints as a consultant, and live a life free from offices, meetings, traffic, and memos?
There's a lot of training that claims to teach you "how to be a consultant" but it's a whole different thing to know what you're consulting on.
The Brand Sprint Blueprint provides you with everything you need to launch your successful strategy consultancy — including your consulting specialty.
Sure you've got valuable experience, expertise, and insights, but how does that translate into a consulting specialty?
Designed by an overthinking introvert, I've removed all the guesswork from launching a strategy consulting business with specialized sprints deployable right across a business' lifecycle.
Choose the Brand Sprint to create a specialty and make yourself an indispensable strategy partner no matter where your client is in their business.
There’s something comforting and efficient about working with familiar patterns, especially for those of us who overthink everything.
But systems are about much more than comfort.
As a strategy consultant, it’s not enough to have a valuable methodology; you’ve also got to be able to repeat it in a way that saves your sanity while still guaranteeing a unique and successful output for the client.
What makes my systems so powerful is the ability to run the same system with every client, while developing individual and unique outputs every time.
Not only does my repeatable system eliminate your overwhelm and fear, you are guaranteed to develop entirely unique and valuable results for your clients.
We've all read the bullshit guidance from extroverts saying, "don't use a script, keep it fluid..."
That's great if your introverted mind is not actively trying to sabotage you! Let's do this in a way that it works for you.
Complete scripts for every part of the sprint are included, from intro's to exercises, answers to the questions you'll encounter, and even how to close out (no more awkward, 20-minute goodbyes!).
Use the scripts as you need them, lose them when you don't.
Virtual sprints are a revelation for introverts, but getting them right means choosing the right platforms to both support and enhance your delivery.
I've assembled a suite of the most accessible and easy to use supporting apps and virtual collaboration platforms.
This app suite makes it simple for participants to join and participate, and has all the functionality to encourage engagement and collaboration while making facilitation easy, enjoyable, and foolproof for you.
Best of all, every license you'll need is available free.
Introverts of the world unite! You know, separately, in your own homes. 😁
Seriously, though, choosing the right community is vital to your success. You need to surround yourself with people who understand introverted, overthinking entrepreneurs. People who actually get you.
Working among likeminded individuals offers you a safe, encouraging environment to collaborate, get help, practice facilitating, and make connections.
Whether you’re testing an exercise, tweaking your scripts, figuring out a niche, or you're just stuck, Simpligy's introvert-friendly community is here to help.
The Brand Sprint Blueprint is a complete, 100% comprehensive online learning-and-doing system that not only teaches you how to run brand sprints… but also gives you all the tools, templates, scripts, software, and answers so you can get started immediately.
The course is rolled out over seven weeks, and seven modules but, you go at your own pace – as fast or as slow as you want. The techniques, tools, scripts and templates are yours, and you can use them to build as many brands as you want.
For Your One-Time Investment, You Get LIFETIME ACCESS…
There are two specific toolsets you'll need to have in place in order to run profitable Brand Sprints.
First is the software, slide decks, and scripts. We use three different pieces of software in the sprint. In week one, we'll tell you exactly how to get your copies, for free, and how to import the templates you'll use in the sprint.
The second toolset is your business niche, specialization, and messaging.
If you’ve ever questioned why you're attracting the kind of clients who don’t value your time, knowledge, or expertise, chances are you have some brand work to do.
I'll walk you through the process to step back from your business and decide who your best prospect is to run Brand Sprints for.
Running a successful Brand Sprint starts well before you and your clients log on for Day 1.
You're going to need to get to know your client's competition and market, perform some comparative analysis, and make some educated decisions.
This is how you separate your consultancy from the, "fill in this questionnaire" pack.
And, it's easier than you think.
I'll show you the exact template for creating competitive research, and what you need to uncover to give your client's brand an unfair advantage.
This module will show you how to set up your slides, what you need to edit before each Sprint, and how much time you should dedicate to each section.
Because running a profitable Brand Sprint is all about efficiency.
During the Sprint, before the Sprint, and after the Sprint.
The in-person process starts here. In the first two sessions of the Sprint, you'll lead your client through a series of foundational exercises to develop a true baseline for moving forward.
In a series of simple, scripted exercises, you'll show the team how to interact with the software, introduce concepts and lead the team through the definitions required to enable real change.
From your client's reputation in the market to the place they wish to occupy in the hearts and minds of their audience, you'll uncover the brand's high-level identity.
Then, you'll be introducing the team to their audience, uncovering some insight into who they work best with and why.
Finishing with a detailed look at the characteristics your clients customers need to have in order for your client's brand (re)launch to be successful.
During sessions 3 & 4 is typically where your branding team begins to see the light.
Instead of the nebulous, undefined nature of a brand they are used to, we begin to see them understand the form and function of the brand for business success.
This is also where we develop their brand compass, the company's true north, comprised of their Mission, Vision, Values, and Purpose.
But, we take a different approach to what you may be used to.
There's no Golden Circle exercise here. We don't just ask, "what's your brand purpose" and hope they know.
Our process reverse engineers the brand compass from existing experiences, ensuring its based in reality and not some fanciful wish from the boss or, worse, copied from a competitor.
Time and again, your clients will be blown away by just how "real" the brand compass is, and how well it fits their future direction.
Now, we're getting into the depth of brand identity. Beyond how the brand looks, identity is about who the brand is.
We're taking another step to really hack the mind of your client's audience to create real, lasting connections.
These are the intangibles about brands that people really connect with.
We'll look at opportunities in the marketplace where competitors are dropping the ball and we'll develop the brand's unique positioning.
Then we'll get into the weeds on the transformation our client's customers are searching for, and how the brand can use that knowledge to improve deliverables, launch new products and better serve the market.
And, we'll finish with a relaunch prioritization exercise that will position you as the go-to creative partner of choice for all your client's brand and creative requirements moving forward.
You'll be right there, as you define the required next steps, to throw your hat in the ring for any and all of the creative work you want to take on.
Until now, all you've done is make decisions and gather information.
Now, it's time to bring it all together into the final Brand Report. This is the most valuable document your client's brand will ever need.
We'll give you the editable InDesign template, along with complete instructions on how to populate it with the unique information you discovered during the Brand Sprint.
This will ensure that, even though you've developed the report using a template, every brand report you develop will be unique and exclusively valuable to the client you developed it for.
We're giving you exchangeable text and copy blocks to use in your intro and outro sections, and including descriptions and strategic recommendations for all the Archetypes.
We're even including a second version of the editable Brand Report template including an editable, complete visual identity Style Guide in case you also want to take on your client's visual identity work at the same time as you develop their brand strategy.
I'm including my turnkey system for making sure every prospective client is a perfect fit, so you can stop wasting time on clients who want to negotiate prices, pay for commoditized hourly work, and nit-pick.
I'll show you how to get your prospects to self-select and apply to work with you, and then give you the entire script so you can answer the questions:
What is a Brand Sprint?
What's the benefit to them?
What's the duration and who’s required to be there?
Where do you hold the Sprint?
What's the investment required?
When can they get started?
What do they get at the end?
What happens next?
Once you've answered these questions, your prospect has everything they need to make a decision.
And, since you've done all the work on qualifying your incoming leads, I'll show you how to get them to respond on the call without feeling all salesy.
All that's left to do, is ask for the deposit, and schedule the Sprint.
Plus, I'll give you...

The Niche Sprint Kit represents one of our most popular Sprint programs.
This is not only the simplest Sprint to run with clients, but it also represents a deliverable that every single prospective client of yours needs help with: their Niche and audience definition.
Which means, this is the program everyone should start with.
It's the perfect program to run with a trusted colleague, friend, or family member to get some practice running Sprints and thinking like a strategist.
And it will help their business immensely at the same time.
But, there's more.
This is the perfect program to double as your paid discovery Sprint. No more free phone calls, ignored proposals, or incomplete details from a client.
Run this sprint with every incoming client to start your relationship off with you in control and the client respecting you as an equal - a trusted partner who they know can deliver high-value strategy for their business because you already will have!
And here's the best part. In the first module of the program, I'm going to show you how to define your own niche first.
So you'll know exactly who you should be offering these strategic services to, without the trial and error or pain of trying to convince the wrong clients that you can do what they need.
After that, I'm going into deep detail on how to run a data-driven Niche Sprint for your clients.
What to do before the Sprint, who to invite, the emails to send, the software you'll need (and how to get a consultant's license to the software, free), the scripts, the presenter's notes, the slide deck, the whole shebang!
So like I said, there's more to this training than "just" a pre-configured client workshop.
Here's a fraction of what you're getting...
The six-step exercise (+ Trello Board Template) to uncover the right service your client should specialize in.
How to get a Consultant's Subscription to our preferred digital whiteboard and online collaboration system, FREE.
How to eliminate "Imposter Syndrome" forever and have prospects applying to work with you, and not the other way around.
An easy three-step exercise to run with your clients to go beyond what they're offering and uncover their prospect's REAL MOTIVATIONS.
What specific things to listen for when researching your clients' audiences.
A proven process to categorize your voice of customer research into bite-sized, emotion-based chunks for deploying in messaging and sales materials — works for you AND your clients!
Step-by-step scripts, timers, and instructions inside the Presenter's notes so you can run your entire online Sprint from the included Keynote.
TODAY: Write your own niche statement that leaves no doubt as to your ideal and most valuable audience.
The complete importable Data-Driven Niche Decisions Sprint whiteboard Canvas, ready to import and deploy in your account.

The demographic & psychographic characteristics your client's audience needs to have to ENSURE they're profitable & enjoyable to work with.
How to use "Nice to Have" client characteristics to tip the scale between good clients and clients who just look good.
How and why to rely on data-driven research techniques for every Niche (and brand) decision you make.
The four places you MUST go to be a "fly-on-the-wall" when prospects are discussing problems and solutions without interrupting them.
And that's really just the tip of the iceberg...
Just the Niche Sprint Kit alone is over 8 hours of instruction and it is PACKED with valuable content in every single video.
Explain in depth the question. Make sure that the explanation clearly answers the objections that visitor has on their mind. The frequently asked questions section is a great way to clear up any objections that the buyer might have and push then a step ahead to make that purchase.
Now open for enrollment.
One year from today, you will still be here on the planet (I hope). The question is, will anything in your life be significantly different?
The answer: only if you do something significantly different.
Maybe this is that new thing you need to do.
I look forward to getting to know you, inside the Brand Sprint Blueprint.
