If business ain’t fun, your brilliance isn’t getting enough play!

Robin Holland

You’re building your business. It’s not growing as fast as you want. There may be some fundamental brand-building keys you’re missing.
 
Hi, I’m Robin! Nice to meet you!
As a brand strategist, I dig in and uncover the uniqueness of your brand. The stories and quirks and deep values that make it your brand. And often, you might have things that aren’t getting expressed. Things your customers need to know. Things they’re dying to know about you and your services!
 
Connect with me for a complimentary 15 minute conversation. Let’s find out what’s happening for you!

 

In our introductory conversation we’ll:

♦ Learn about your specialization and uniqueness
♦ Explore your situation briefly and see how I can help you the most
Discover EXACTLY what to do next to create the business you want

If you’re reading this, you’re here to make a difference in the world. You’ve specialized in a way of doing things that makes life better for others.

You’re a positive force!

You’ve navigated inside the business box and made a livelihood around for yourself. There’ve been times when that worked well.

Yet sometimes it’s hard to give yourself enough credit for what you’ve done. To feel proud. To identify with and feel great about your successes. And I have a notion about why.

“What stands out is how you were able to spot what was really shiny about me and verbalize it, and I was reminded that things I take for granted about my process might be special. You also confirmed my inner questions about marketing with vulnerability.” ~ Kate Pintor, Kate Pintor Consulting

Does any of this describe you?

You might consider yourself an “accidental entrepreneur.” You’ve built your business on unique or out of the box ideas that brought you success.
 
Lately, what used to work doesn’t appeal to you anymore.
 
At times, you’ve wondered if you needed to work on your “attitude.” Get out of town for a long weekend. Restlessness and boredom were familiar companions.
 
You may have felt like a misfit and wondered if your ideas actually were “unrealistic.” Because it seemed like your opportunities had gone flat, and your ideas didn’t seem to have the oomph they used to.
 
You knew you could continue doing things “as usual”– you’ve been doing that for years. At times, projects did please you. Where it mattered that you were you, because your uniqueness created value.
 
What you haven’t known is how to climb out of this rut permanently.
But you know it’s draining you to keep doing what you’ve been doing. You don’t want to continue as a partial version of yourself anymore. These feelings may even be affecting your relationships at home. They may be affecting your income, too. They’re dimming your zest, and sometimes, even your belief in yourself.
 
You long to feel alive again. With your excitement, passion and unique vision guiding everything you do.
 
Because in the very core of who you are, you are a “creative.” Who’s been trying to “make it work” in an outdated vision of your work! It’s not set up to recognize or support your gifts now. You’ve actually been “off brand,” out of synch with who you are now.
I’m here to tell you that you can succeed in your next chapter, reinventing your way, on your terms. I’m here to provide collaboration and support for you to do it.
 
For a new spin on your career, an updated platform for your business, or something a little crazier — let’s talk!

My Story

My love of words and books and stories is what first got me to the ad agency business in San Francisco. The creativity of that business drew me in. This led me on to product marketing companies. In the bike industry (Fisher Mountainbikes) and computer games (LucasArts). And then Totally Games, the interactive game studio my husband and I built. Brand-building was the name of the game during those years. Especially building Totally Games from scratch!
 
I expected Totally Games to last forever. But when the industry changed, we needed to pivot with the market and we lost our footing.
 
With this unexpected turn, it was time to create my own business. I didn’t feel ready. I felt scared to go out on my own, so sad that TG wasn’t going forward. I floundered. I’d get great ideas and talk myself out of them. Being on my own was very different from being in a corporation or partnered with my husband in our business. I couldn’t see my brilliance or my brand. Many days, I googled all my options. I took a ton of trainings and courses, trying to figure out who I was.
 
It took me years to connect with what made me tick. I remember the moment when I made the commitment to myself to commit build my business. There I was, face to face with my future mentor. I felt terrified to invest in myself! We had kids in college, and debt from our company. I needed help to move forward. She looked me straight in the eyes, and told me, “Robin, it doesn’t have to be this hard. With support, it can be so much easier.”
 
That was the moment I decided to start. Since then, my brand of brilliance has begun to excite me and bring me great joy. 
 
That’s what I want for you!
 
Why is this so important?
 
You’re here with a specific, unique gift. Frustration may cut you off from your greatest source of aliveness. We don’t want that! Instead, let’s dig in and build on all the great pieces you’ve already got!
 
It’s time to make a move into that wild zone of fresh creation. Create a new vision for yourself and your business. Get aligned with your brand. Express it in a big way!

“When Robin says she helps co-create with you, she does so with the totality of her intuitive heart and brilliant mind. Her life experiences, business acumen, and depth of transformational impact allow her to guide with wisdom and discernment” ~ Vanessa Horn, The Signature Series.

Back to you…

I’ve told you that my work is about you — do you see the connection? Do you find yourself in my story? I’m guessing you’re still reading because you’re ready for a breakthrough.

Maybe a little nudge is all you really need to get started…Would you like some help with that?

I connect best with people who:

  • Sense there’s opportunity in their work or life that they’re missing.
  • Are ready to notch things up in their work and be open to new possibilities.
  • Are willing to go on the journey and be in the process … there might be trepidation, but they’re going to do it. They know it’s time.
  • Have a big expansive ability, a big capacity — like having a giant set of lungs to sing with. They want an expanded, unbridled expression.

If we work together, you can count on me to:

  • See you for who you truly are. I can’t help but see your genius!
  • Deeply connect with the person you are inside.
  • Be committed to your greatness. I will stand with you while you get your sea-legs to show up fully in all that you are.

My intentions for you:

  • Whatever you want to build, whatever you want to author, we will get that done.
  • We have fun in this process, this can feel weightless and be powerful.
  • You’ll create real-world results. Change at this level is felt by anyone who encounters you — your market, yes — but also your family, friends, and the larger world. Your company will get the best you have to offer. You’ll feel the joy of finding more freedom, spaciousness and authenticity, as a conscious creator, and manifesting the gifts you are here to give.

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”~ Martha Graham
