Episode #175: Why your Personal Brand Matters with Monique Bryan

Mar 30, 2022

Being the face of your brand can be a little intimidating — or downright scary! Many mompreneurs may not feel comfortable stepping in front of the camera and putting themselves out there, but the rise of the Instagram Age has made invisibility a risky choice. With more customers basing buying decisions on whether they feel aligned with a brand, putting your personality and values on display is becoming a must.


Yes, even for introverts!


Don’t worry, showing up doesn’t mean creating 10 Reels per day, posting every thought, or constantly going Live. You can show your audience who you are, how you serve, and what you stand for, without oversharing or seeming spammy. It’s about creating a curated yet authentic online presence that lets your dream clients relate to you AND understand the value you bring. All you need is a little bit of strategy!


My guest for this episode is Monique Bryan, a personal brand coach who helps women step up and shine as visible CEOs, showcase their expertise, and have everything they want… without apology.  From embracing your quirks to the power of practice, this interview is full of juicy, actionable insights that can help you upgrade your social game and build a deeper, more genuine connection with your audience.


In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • How social media trends have shifted and why “polished and glossy” is no longer the winning strategy
  • The secret to going Live successfully (and making it seem effortless)
  • Monique’s top action items for DIYing your personal brand — and what you need to prioritize first
