About me

Andrea Callahan, seminar leader, coach, trainer, and brand manager

My Why

In 2009 I started my business to support creative dreamers to pursue their aspirations to create extraordinary businesses.

My mission is to lead visionary brands to become Industry Influencers by expanding their brand, crafting marketing messages to attract their Ideal Buyers, building a family of loyal followers; and earning the revenue they deserve by doing what they love.

The creative service providers I serve best are so important to me because they are consumed with 3:00 am BIG ideas and they just don't know how to execute a plan to fulfill them. They often feel isolated in ingenuity and creativity and misunderstood.

I am committed to offering my 35+ years of leadership, management, and marketing experience to small business owners, just like you - who need strategies, training, support, inspiration, challenge, and structure.

Did you know that many business problems are personal problems in disguise? Yup, that's why I'm here to help you operate your business from a personal strengths perspective. That's the benefit of personal branding.

My Message for You:

At the core, life is but a string of experiences, including both failures and achievements. Lessons come with everything you do. We can't control all our life's experiences. However, you have options about how to use your lived experiences for your highest good. Learn to use them as opportunities to be mindful, seek awareness, and grow...and do so from a place of patience, self-compassion, and self-love. Be kind to yourself. You are worthy.

My numbers

Stats typically aren't  important to me but I have learned to stand tall in my successes (small and large.) If you are like me-and many women- are taught to be humble. I am here to tell you to be proud of your journey and celebrate your wins! Success is whatever you say it is. 🥂









My core values

Your Personal Brand Begins with Self-Love & The Courage to Be Authentically Brilliant

Your personal brand is the essence of who you are. It's the unique combination of your energy, skills and experiences that make you a one-of-a-kind. Your brand is how you show up. It's your presence.


Self-love is a state of appreciation for yourself that grows from actions (and habits) that support your physical, psychological and spiritual growth. Self-love entails being warm and understanding toward yourself when you suffer, fail, or feel inadequate, rather than ignoring your pain and punishing yourself with self-criticism.  Self-love is personal branding.


Self-empathy is the ability to connect with yourself in an affectionate and respectful way. It requires greater self-awareness, discipline, and sensitivity to self-suffering. It is a commitment to finding helpful solutions. Self-empathy is the acknowledgment that, like all human beings, you deserve understanding, compassion, and yes, forgiveness. 


Self-care is the practice of  looking after your own health using the knowledge and information available to you. Self-care is important to maintaining a healthy relationship with yourself. It means doing things to take care of your mind, body, and soul by engaging in activities that promote well-being & reduce stress. 


Self-compassion is simply the process of turning compassion inward. We are kind and understanding rather than harshly self-critical when we fail, make mistakes or feel inadequate. We give ourselves support and encouragement rather than being cold and judgmental when challenges and difficulty arise in our lives.

My intention is to guide you stand tall in your authentic brilliance. 🙌🏾

Harmonizing Your Essence:
The Power of Synergy Between Personal and Business Brand

Unleash Your Authenticity to Elevate Your Business and Personal Success

 Visionary entrepreneurs let's chat about something truly game-changing: your personal brand. I get it – sometimes, it feels like there's a gap between who you are personally and how your business is perceived. But here's the thing: when we align your personal brand with your business values, magic happens.

Picture this: your expertise, skills, and unique talents aren't just assets for your business – they're the heartbeat of it all. By developing your personal brand, you're not just putting a face to your business; you're infusing it with authenticity, passion, and purpose. It's about building trust, connecting with your audience on a deeper level, and standing out in a crowded market.

So, let's bridge that gap together. Let's harness your personal brand as the driving force behind your business values, mission, and purpose. Because when your personal brand shines, your business thrives.

Ready to unleash the power of synergy? Let's make it happen.

Navigating the Disconnect: Identifying the Gap Between Your Personal and Business Brand

Discovering the Key to Alignment and Fulfillment in Your Entrepreneurial Journey

Let's talk about what happens when our personal brand and business aren't quite in sync. Trust me, I've been there – and it can feel like trying to run a marathon with one shoe untied.

Imagine this: you're pouring your heart and soul into your business, but something feels off. Maybe you're attracting the wrong clients, or your messaging just isn't landing. It's like you're shouting into the void, and no one's listening.

Sound familiar? It's frustrating, I know. When our personal brand and business aren't aligned, it's like we're speaking a different language than our audience. We're missing out on those authentic connections, those "aha" moments that turn followers into loyal fans.

But here's the good news: it doesn't have to stay that way. By aligning your personal brand with your business values, you're not just fixing a disconnect – you're unlocking a whole new level of success. It's about finding your voice, owning your story, and stepping into your power as a leader.

So, if you're ready to stop spinning your wheels and start making waves, I'm here to help. Together, we'll bridge the gap between your personal brand and your business, and watch the magic unfold.

Let's do this.
