Kate Obert | Chief Brand Officer

As a personal brand myself and expert on branding, I see that most people struggle with the idea of an authentic, cohesive brand that reflects all of them. They are taught that building a brand is about being consistent, so they choose their colors, logo, determine which side of them they want people to see and what they’re about and can never change because they’d lose brand recognition. My philosophy when it comes to branding is that we should always be evolving and it can be done in a way that is always on-brand. I am successful because I teach people how to evolve by understanding the fundamentals of building a brand that represents who they are at the core & their next version they’re wanting to step into and then their aesthetics externally represent who they are. We are always changing and so should our brands. No one sticks around at the movie theatre to watch the same movie over and over and over… same things goes for a personal brand. I allow my audience to grow with me as I learn more and more and this way, my client retention, not to mention my referral rate, is extremely high. Read more>>

Elda Aime | Public Figure Author, Minister & Speaker

The Factor Behind my success and Brand is my Faith! The Word Of God states in Philemon 1:6 (My Favorite verse) “may your faith be effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing that is in you by Christ Jesus” it encourages me to continue to go forth and press because I am made in his image and there is an investment that he shall get a return. So my Faith keeps me pressing no matter it looks like and no matter how many lessons (losses) I take along the way its part of the process. Read more>>

Yael Magen | Kabbalah Centre Instructor

The most important factor that drives me, was taught to me by my spiritual teacher Karen Berg, director of the Kabbalah Centre, before she left this world. She said “remember you are just a messenger, sharing your energy, care and love with people”. I use this mantra before every reading I do. It keeps me humble and open as a channel for others. As a member of the teaching team of the Kabbalah Centre, my purpose is to share this wisdom to help others not for my own success. According to Kabbalah each one of us as a divine spark of the Light of the Creator (which is a force of sharing) and our greatest fulfilment comes to us when we are living our purpose which is to share that spark with others and to help others awaken that spark within themselves. My tool to help others is my connection to the angelic universe which can act as a tool of transformation for people who are inspired to find their spark and purpose. Read more>>

Evan Rich | Wedding Photographer

Without question, the most important factor that has contributed to our success has been our focus on the people who hire us and the way we treat them. People hire us to help them with one of the most important experiences of their lives. Treating people with compassion, understanding, and care goes a long way and is also just the right thing to do. It is not solely important that we deliver quality, but so is the way we deliver it. This type of service-oriented approach has made our couples extremely happy and grateful to work with us and their praise is not just rewarding, but also helps spread the word about us. Read more>>
