I am so thrilled to announce my partnership with Lisa Guillout of BeBright Lisa and the founder of StepBrightly. Lisa, who’s been recognized by the Chicago Tribune as a branding pro, shares the same exact mission as I do: to create as many opportunities as possible for entrepreneurial women to come together and move their minds, open their hearts and help them to grow their brands and businesses.
When I met Lisa, it was an instant “click.” We share the same essence words (i.e., Core Desired Feelings) for crying out loud. Who knew? (Well, the Universe did.)
Together, we get down to business.
On Wednesday, November 16, Lisa and I are hosting an intensive personal branding and professional development event in Chicago.
So what is SimplyBe Bright?

What is personal branding?
One word: everything.
Your reputation, essence and personality walk through the door before you do. Sharing your personal brand, your essence, your soul, with the world in a positive influential and clear way, will create opportunities and connections beyond what is possible today.
Unveiling your personal brand and putting the elements of voice, aesthetic, tonality and feeling into one cohesive presentation is only half of the equation. What do you actually do once you’ve figured that all out? How do you build your brand and grow your audience? How do you capture leads, sales, connections, a reputation, press, partnerships and more?
Lisa and I are going to show you exactly how.
Everyone has a personal brand – some are louder, brighter, bigger than others – but all of them have the power to be impactful and make a difference in the world. Join us and an intimate group of like-minded women on November 16 starting at 6pm. Part motivation, part strategy, you’ll take away the insight and experience that we have been sharing with our clients for decades.
