What’s the secret to having a successful writing career? 

And what the heck is a personal brand, anyway?

Hi, I’m Andrea.

When I first began to take my writing career seriously (after decades of wishing & waiting) I was really confused:

  • About how to “package” myself into brand that people would be interested in, mostly because…
  • I wrote a lot of different things (memoir, business how-to’s, essay, short stories, etc.) AND had a totally unrelated day job, and
  • I wasn’t sure how to get more people to read my work

I wasn’t sure how to merge all of these seemingly disparate interests into one cohesive brand that people would understand.

It was pretty embarrassing because I was (and am) a branding expert.

 I’ve spent nearly two decades helping businesses figure out their brands and position them for success. So why couldn’t I figure out my own brand?

The thing was (and maybe you can relate)…

it’s always easier to see someone else’s talents or flaws rather than our own. The same goes for branding.  I knew the only way to be successful would be to have a solid writer brand. Yet I struggled for months over how to marry what I knew about branding with what I wanted to achieve as a writer. Plus, I secretly feared that I’d end up committing to a personal brand that I didn’t really like. That maybe I’d feel like a fraud.

Then one day…

It hit me: a personal brand is not as much about WHAT you do, so much as WHO you are. This was the key that unlocked everything for me.

Does this sound like you?:

  • Not sure where your creativity, passions, & career should intersect?
  • Often frustrated that people aren‘t "getting" what you’re trying to do?
  • Overwhelmed by where, when, & how best to post on social media?
  • You write different genres, but aren’t sure how to brand it all?

You are not alone!

Obviously, I used to be there too, but the good news is, I know the way out. I know how to bust through the bullshit, the confusion, the overwhelm, and create a career based on who you authentically are. And I want to teach you!

“Andrea is incredible. I’ve been struggling to figure out my brand, and this course was exactly what I needed: thorough, detailed, and hands-on! I cannot recommend this course or Andrea as a consultant/advisor/mentor enough! Make no mistake, she’ll push you to think about things and be honest with yourself, but she supports you the whole way.”

Andrea Guevara

Branding expert & writer

Hello! I’m Andrea Guevara and I’m excited to teach you how to craft an authentically awesome personal brand–one that is true to who you are and what you want. I have over fifteen years experience as a branding strategist and graphic/web designer. A few years back I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a writer and to marry my passions for branding and writing, in order to help writers like you improve their careers.

Writing is often a solitary activity and shifting gears from creating to marketing/branding can be hard. I want to help make it easier!

Here is a little bit more about my professional street cred, in both branding and writing: In addition to my past experience as Creative Director and President of my branding firm, Lucky 19–and starting a couple other businesses–I am the current Brand Director of BinderCon (national literary conference) and also worked for a little while as Digital Media Program Coordinator for PEN Center USA.

In 2015, I graduated from the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program where I was a 2014/15 Writing Program Scholar. My work (writing and visual) has appeared in ESME, Role Reboot, Mash Stories, Winter Tangerine Review, Conde Nast Traveler, StartupNation, Parenting OC, Healthy Child Healthy World, and USA Today. I authored a small business ebook called Brand Almighty (which is undergoing a reboot). I served as a short story judge at MashStories. I am currently working on a coming of age memoir about my search for worth and identity, while growing up in an evangelical Christian marriage.
