Ready to step into the spotlight? I’m here to help you shine bright.

I help busy entrepreneurs like you simplify their marketing, become well-known experts, and attract high-paying, dream clients by building a bold online presence!

A little confession: until very recently, I was struggling with marketing and being visible.

I’d often wake in the middle of the night worrying about whether or not I should post on LinkedIn, and I’d never tell anyone about my website.

After graduating from Columbia University, I began working at Ogilvy PR, Lincoln Center, and alongside award-winning artists, creatives, and entrepreneurs.

Working on campaigns and events for my clients, I never imagined I would put myself out there by starting my own business…

Hey there, I’m Julie! 

I’m a marketing strategist and a fellow solopreneur.

Wait?! So how did I get started? 

Back in the summer of 2020, the pandemic hit, and the whole city shut down. While I was stuck in my small studio in NYC, washing my hands every 30 minutes and applying my delicious almond-flavored cream to keep my hands soft from overwashing, an old lawyer friend called me.

She shared that she was losing a lot of clients due to the pandemic.

She barely had any digital presence and wanted to build a social media following. But like a lot of people, she was intimidated, not to mention she already had a lot on her plate with 2 kids to take care of…

Together, we:
  • identified where her clients were online,
  • created a 90-day marketing plan,
  • and within a few months gained her followers, podcast invitations, and media mentions… and many new clients!

It’s been so rewarding to see how my work accelerated her firm. Taking the stress out of her marketing efforts has allowed her to focus on being a thought leader, and not handcuffed to her social media accounts…

Last year, at the opening of her second office in New Jersey, she inspired me to take the next step.

“Julie,” she said, “you’re so good at this, you should totally start your own business!”

I knew then that I was on the right path, and I decided to take the leap of faith and open my doors!

What’s this place?

This is a place for awesome business owners like you who want to shape unignorable brands and find peace of mind, whether you want to:

Simplify your never-ending to-do list (no, you don’t have to do everything at once, exhale)...

Find your unique voice and story (I know you have the magic within you!)...

Or attract your dream clients without sounding pushy or salesy—-if you’re nodding your head to any of these, I’m here to help! 

Should you take the leap? 

I was so scared to put myself out there, just like you.

I was like a vampire, avoiding any kind of exposure and happily working behind the scenes in my comfort zone, aka my moss green velvet couch with a cup of hot cocoa. Don’t get me wrong, I like the sun and going out and meeting people, but I just never thought that I had it in me.

I was so anxious, never feeling ready, and always focused on perfecting every single detail.

It’s—or, rather, it was—a problem that kept my business stuck at square one.

Since then, I’ve managed to land 7 speaking opportunities, been published in Forbes and Entrepreneur magazine, and worked with the most inspiring and powerful women entrepreneurs.

You’ve probably thinking, “I don’t have the time, Julie. I don’t have a story worthy telling. I feel like a fraud in all areas (hello imposter syndrome!)”

Now, imagine breaking free from all these worries and overwhelming doubts, and getting seen and heard by your dream audience…

That would feel spectacular, wouldn’t it?

I want you to relax and breathe: I’m here to help you get known, booked up, and boost your brand!
