If you have ever been through the loss of a loved one within your immediate family, at one point you may have said to yourself how much you wished you had someone to help you through this all --- kinda like birth too ;) Chelsea Peddle is a Educator, Consultant and Death Doula from Victoria BC. She helps individuals and families prepare for holistic and empowered end of life journeys. I loved working with Chelsea on her branding and website build. Not only was she a pleasure to share ideas with, but her wealth of knowledge was so evident. Her website has so many great resources - you must check it out!
When we were building the brand, we wanted to go for something that was connected to nature and also something not so typical. We wanted it to show some personality and some heart to make it clear that preparing for your end of life could be beautiful and powerful, not dry, too serious, stress inducing or boring.

I first met Asia while she was still living in my area. When I was pregnant with my third baby, I was lucky enough to attend one of her prenatal yoga classes. She has a naturally peaceful, calm inducing personality that her successes in the different modalities she specializes in came as no surprise. Her previous website though just did not capture her personality or highlight all her skills well enough. I was so happy with Asia came to me to build her new website.
Asia offers energy work, yoga, holistic birth support and herbal support out of beautiful Victoria, BC.

I know, I know. Black Friday can feel super overwhelming. I don't know about you, but all the sales tend to make me feel panicky that I have to GET ALL THE THINGS - and end up having spent more than if no sales were around ever!
A few years ago I made the decision to stop buying just because, and instead, use Black Friday as an opportunity to only buy things that I had been needing to get and were already on my list AND I also decided that Black Friday sales were the opportunity to take advantage of investing in myself or in my business. One year I use Black Friday sales to register for a training I really wanted to go to. Another year, I signed up for a weekend retreat for some personal growth work I needed.
When it came time to deciding if I wanted to go ahead with a Black Friday sale for my consulting business, I decided to go ahead and offer up a few things for you that I think would be really beneficial to any business owner. And it isn't just 1 deal, but 3 deals and a freebie for your business! All these deals expire on Wednesday, December 4, 2019.
Did you know I offer free one on one 20 minute discovery sessions?

Brand Build Spotlight - Amber Dawn Holistic Wellness - Nova Scotia RMT, DOULA, Herbal Medicine and Infant Sleep Education
All my branding clients need to complete a pretty in-depth branding questionnaire. The reason I make them do this is because not only do I need to have a clear idea of who they are and what they want their business to achieve, but they need to know this too! When describing her target market, Amber explains " They are community minded and have a holistic health approach. They are feminists. They recognize the value of an empowered birth experience and they want it."
With a name like Amber Dawn and her focus on holistic health, as well as keeping in mind who her target market is, it was clear I needed to build a brand that reflected the beauty of nature. I wanted to work with the colours in the sky at dawn, both feminine and strong. I also wanted to integrate some water as the beautiful photos of Nova Scotia always reflect the beauty of the waters.
When designing the logo, I came across this lovely symbol, which is an ancient symbol for the womb, goddess, fertility and change. When choosing colours - again, it needed to be strong and the red and black was so clear. Red was chosen because of its connection to femininity and to the womb.
Those clients are not my clients.
MY CLIENTS ARE:
2. Understand the importance of having a brand that not only reflects them but, just as importantly, connects to their clients
3. Appreciate the unique value hiring someone to help build your brand and your business who understand the Birth/Wellness business. It is unlike any other industry, and can't be approached the same as every other business.
1. It doesn't reflect me/my business properly
2. I don't know if it appeals to my target market
3. It looks generic and like every other doula logo.
And this is why I will never be your budget option because often, when you choose cheap, you just can't get the same level of support that someone like myself can provide. So often, when a designer hears "doula" they either don't know what that is, or they do and know it has something to do with pregnancy and "hippy/crunchy" people do it, so the logos tend to all look the same - pregnant belly, a baby or flowers. And the same can be said for other wellness professionals too.
BUT we know that as professionals, we are all unique and we target different demographics.
Just like BIRTH - ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL DOULAS.
My goal is to help the HEART of your business SHINE through because you are your product!
Brand builds with me do not just include your logo. In fact, I won't work with a client who just wants to hire me for logo. Why? Because branding is more then just a logo. Aside from the visuals - that does include a logo, your specific corporate colours and your fonts - your brand is also about the personality and feeling that you want your brand to exude. Every brand build also includes a business card. From there you can upgrade to add a trifold brochure design and all your social media branded images for consistency everywhere that your brand is.
So, if you are now considering how to get started with branding or even a full rebrand, I encourage you to do your research and interview a few people. Just like I tell people when searching for their doula, you need to make sure that the person you are hiring to support your business is a match for you, just like I need to make sure that you are a match with me. If you have a very clear vision of your needs and have a strong foundation that you can easily give clear direction to a designer, then Fiverr very well may be a fine option for you. BUT, if you feel you could benefit from MORE support, from a professional who not just has the marketing and design background but ALSO owns her own doula business and understands the unique challenges that doula/wellness professionals face, then book a free discover session with me. Let's connect.
Mommy Spa's target market has a disposable income, is health conscious and wants the best for her body, pregnancy, baby. Because of this we knew we wanted to go with something a bit more upscale and luxurious. From the start Bhavani knew she wanted to work with rose gold and when we did her collaborative Pinterest board, the look of the brand was SO obvious to my that I had such a great time turning what I saw in my head into her brand.
