As a new wave of female leadership expands into the world, the landscape of branding in business is deepening. Consumer expectations demand a new level of connection from those in positions of influence where real, raw and relatable is now the currency of long lasting impact.
Passionate entrepreneurs like Sara Blakely, with boundless authenticity and ambition, are taking center stage as heart-driven leaders. SPANX, now a billion dollar brand has become a household name, by way of inspiring hundreds of thousands of women through Blakely’s Instagram account. Connecting with her audience through her now infamous coffee mug images, Blakely shares such action-inspiring quotes as: ‘If your own story is not inspiring to you, it’s time to rewrite that sh*t!’. The realness of her videos, immersing her audience in her home-life, magnifies the sense of belonging to her family. It’s a revealing perspective that has allowed other women to chase their dreams and grow their own brands by simply being themselves.
The Pillars Of A Heart Centered Brand
Building a business that is bigger than you, takes heart and demands a wild ride into defining the values of your company, the mission it serves and a story that people can not only relate to but deeply trust. From purpose to profits, let’s explore the 5 pillars to establishing a heart centered brand…
Purpose: This is the heartbeat of your work. It is the reason people connect with, and rally behind what you do, and why you do it. Articulate this well and your brand will move mountains. Your purpose is shared through potent storytelling and a community culture enriched with powerful values.
People: Brands exist because they serve people. Knowing who you are designing your products and services to support, is essential. Defining your target audience will ensure aligned branding and messaging that speaks authentically to your ideal consumers.
Possibility: Knowing the problem your business solves is crucial. However, in contrast to the pain-based selling and engagement tactics of the past, heart-led businesses are fluent in speaking to the wisdom and potential of their ideal audience.
Products: The place where people invest to reach their goals and meet their needs. Your services or products are the bridge between where they are now and where they will be tomorrow. Your brand is their solution.
Profits: A successful heart-centred brand is profitable. Setting your business up to ensure its ability to sustain impact and service for years to come, is critical in establishing a trustworthy brand.
Establish The Energy For Congruency
High energy and the know-how to helm a Billion Dollar Company, Blakely swears by morning yoga at 6:30am, followed by a healthy smoothie. “It has frozen wild blueberries, a few dark cherries, kale, dates, cinnamon, spinach, cilantro, fresh mint, lemon, water, ice, chia, and walnuts,” Blakely shares. Where most female start-ups believe their brand will be built on the coattails of sleepless nights and another hit of caffeine, it is quite the opposite for those deeply devoted to heart-centered leadership and a sustainable business model.
Similarly, Ondi Laure swears by her morning ritual of practicing gratitude at 5am. According to Ondi, early mornings are the sacred time of day allowing for calm and creativity to be born: “I like to think of an early morning routine as self-care. Because without a healthy me there are no books. No books mean no business.”
Ondi, Founder of Story Launcher Publishing, enriches the lives of her readers through the magnificent power of story-telling, to remind us of the savagery of the past. She writes of the struggles and glories of today and brings stories that inspire hope for a better future. Through her publishing company, Ondi has become a powerful catalyst for other women to bring their stories into the world and give them life.
For Ondi, bringing a legacy piece to life for her clients has become part of her life-giving mission and brand – “A business built on purpose, if you approach it as being bigger than yourself, will allow you to find profound intention in your craft, a passion, and a purpose that you didn’t know you had.”
The Power Of Inclusion
At its essence, a successful heart-centered brand has people as its core. For Kathy Gibson, a passionate leader whose unique gifts and talents reside in work of diversity, equity and inclusion she is trailblazing a path forward where unintentional division no longer exists for those in the business of people.
“It’s been a profound journey of self-discovery, compassion for all people, particularly those who face adversity or ancestral trauma. I aim to acknowledge, and recognize, the things I can control and support positive change in those around me to elevate and give life to the power that inclusion has, both personally and professionally.”
Gibson, is an advocate and expert on pressing economic, social and technology issues. As a working mother of two children, Kathy has had the opportunity to pursue the true passions in her life – motherhood, operating her own successful business, and bridging the gap between incorporating her spiritual path with her professional life to enhance impact at scale.
Her biggest piece of advice for CEO’s managing a team within a heart centered business model: Diversity and inclusion needs to be at the foundation of your operations. Establishing policies and procedures at every level of the employee life cycle will ensure that your unique goals are attainable. Employees will thrive in an inclusive environment, allowing them to express their unique perspectives to initiate strong performance and innovation for your brand.
2022 will see heart-centered entrepreneurs cultivate a deeper level of authenticity in their branding, energy and communities. The Hustle and pain-focused selling of the past, has given way to story and messaging that speaks to possibility and potential through the lens of love.
When more women are themselves, anchoring into their values and influence from that place, only good can come of it. That is a world we can all begin to consciously cultivate in 2022.
Fitness Dating Brand, FITFCK, Expand Into Influencer Management
Fitness dating brand, FITFCK, recently announced the launch of their management company “FITFCK MGMT”. The company, which recently announced the launch of its £5m A Round investment raise is looking to expand on their brand growth by offering content creators of all niches and brands a full 360 lifestyle management service.
Rebranded in March 2022, the recently featured BBC News company has emerged as the leading brand for gym goers that are looking to make new connections – whether through IRL fitness dating events or online dating experiences. To accompany its strong digital product suite, FITFCK is now developing a series of consumer products to further enhance their brand power, with the most recent being a holistic management company for content creators and brands.
FITFCK Founder and UK Government Enterprise Advisor, Jamie says: “Having worked closely with content creators for the last eighteen months since our relaunch, this addition made nothing but complete sense to me. As a management service, you should be looking at improving all angles of your clients life – not just quick brand deals for a few quid. We are looking to offer a 360 lifestyle approach where we assist our clients with everything from their income, branding, business advisory, PR, legalities and more – all under the FITFCK brand umbrella.”
To continue its ruthless chase of becoming the largest omni-channel community for dating, relationships, casual meets and friendships, FITFCK will be looking to embed the management service into members of their ever growing community which already includes a number of high profile content creators.
The first creator to be signed under the label is Santino Valentino, a fitness content creator boasting over 70,000 followers across platforms. Valentino states; “I have known Jamie for a few months now and have felt nothing but constant support from himself and the rest of the FITFCK team. Having seen where they have taken the brand in such a short space of time, I am hoping they can do the same for me. I am really looking forward to seeing where we can take this whilst learning under Jamie and Callum simultaneously”
FITFCK MGMT athlete manager Callum Roberts added: “At the core of every FITFCK movement is the care we have for our community. This ethos is something that we will be looking to reflect in the management company. Hyper-focused care for our clients where they know they feel valued and at ease with us. We are not looking to just improve our client’s income, we are looking to improve their lifestyle”
