Team Brand Yourself and Team UnleaSHEd (yep – it’s one in the same) hosted a little party last week to celebrate our partnership. We are excited that we have had the chance to share our projects (and a drink) with those that took time to spend the evening with us.
A deep and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who came. Cheers!
(And for those of you who had a hard time getting your temporary tattoos off – #sorrynotsorry!)
And the Benjamin Moore color of the year for 2016 is………not a color.
What? It’s white. The actual number is “Simply White OC-117.”
White–and all neutrals–are vitally important in design, because they allow other colors to shine through; create a backdrop for furniture, details and artwork; and can help set a mood whether it is modern, historic or cottage.
However, not all whites are created equal. Benjamin Moore makes a whole range of whites with various tints hiding in the mix. Rarely do I recommend “ceiling white” for a room: the home’s individual light and the color on the walls and floor impact the ceiling greatly. A ceiling white that doesn’t coordinate can feel cold, detached and sometimes dirty. Especially if you’re painting several ceilings or a great room ceiling, the right white makes a big difference.
My favorite white? Benjamin Moore’s “Swiss Coffee” #OC-45. It has a parchment-colored undertone that works well with warm colors and doesn’t look stark in winter light. The undertones make woodwork and cabinetry look established while still feeling fresh and clean.
If you’re interested in more real color, you can check out the ten colors to watch for this spring:
Try the new “color of the year” in creative ways and with other colors you enjoy. You may be surprised at how many ways you can use it. Just as you wouldn’t paint any other color (like “Marsala” the 2015 Pantone color) on every surface of your home, I recommend refraining from whitening your whole interior.
Plan your timeline. Elle Decor sets out one timeline option to prepare for your remodel. Don’t hesitate to find other resources (friends or contractors) who can share their own timelines with you! Set a budget. Talk with your designer and contractor about your budget, and check in a couple times during the remodel to make sure everybody is […]

It’s not very often that one comes across a business soul-mate. But that’s what it feels like I’ve found in Tami, owner of Brand Yourself. I served as her business consultant for four years, helping her navigate start-up and growth phases.
I worked as the Director of a non-profit that provided free coaching and consulting to businesses, and Tami took advantage of every service we offered. She and I met weekly to discuss her business, and I got to watch her go from a full-time employee helping grow someone else’s business, to a full-time entrepreneur, growing her OWN business.
It was only after I decided that it was time for me to start my own business again (I’ve had several over the years, including an administrative services company, a consulting firm, and a retail store) that Tami and I decided we maybe we should partner up on a couple of projects. We found that our partnership made us both stronger, and that we were able to find better solutions for our clients.
I never, ever, ever would have thought that I would go into a business partnership with someone. As a business consultant, I’ve helped many unravel their messy relationships. But, I also had seen some go exceedingly well, and they all a few things in common: they all had a clear buy-sell agreement that provides a framework for if the shit hits the fan, and they all were people that were generous and wanted the best for one another. Tami and I have both of those things in place.
I quit my job so that I could join her in her business, and she could join me in mine. We no longer have that consultant/client relationship. Instead, we are in it together.
What do I bring it the business? Good question…I excel at high-level strategy that helps clients unearth their goals, strategies, and the tactics necessary to reach to reach those goals. I have a Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership, so I can help the clients of Brand Yourself get to solutions and problem solve quickly and efficiently. Brand Yourself has always been a strong marketing firm, and now, I can help to enhance it by widening our line of products and services.
As a partner at Brand Yourself, I feel so fortunate to be able to help our client’s grow and thrive by creating imaginative, innovative, and thoughtful branding, social media, and marketing strategies.
In addition to Brand Yourself, Tami and I also have co-founded another venture called UnleaSHEd. It’s an online company that specializes in working with women entrepreneurs to help them start and grow businesses. Our first product, The Unleashed Business Club is a membership website that we created to help women sell, grow, learn, and connect with one another. It opens for membership soon!

From now through November 8th, there are thousands of trees, shrubs and perennials available at the nursery for late fall planting. Deep discounts from 20% off to 50% off are in palce on all these plant materials until we group, tip and cover them to protect them over the coming winter.

Our late fall hours starting November 1st will be Monday through Saturday will be 8 am to 4:30 pm and on Sunday Nov. 1st and 8th we will be here 10 am to 4 pm.

We will have mulches and rock products available until things freeze and gift certificates will be available anytime.
Halloween is the time of year when humans embarrass their pets by shoving us into funny costumes and taking photos of them. A good time is had by all. While I don’t often wear costumes or clothes (I’m a pretty big dog, and I don’t need winter gear thanks to my fur), a lot of […]
