episode 200: the key to early stage business growth with Emmy Marie

Emmy Marie Brand Yourself Podcast Blair Badenhop

So, we just hit 200 episodes!!!!!

I’m looking at that number and literally cannot believe it.

That’s a lot of conversations and solo recordings in just 4 years.

So much has happened since then – I had a baby. We experienced a pandemic. My family moved out of New York City to the suburbs. And so much in between.

This show has truly been such a constant – a space for me to share my truth and my voice and have beautiful conversations with incredible humans – within so much change!

Thank you so much for being on the journey with me. And for letting me know that these episodes have helped you in some way.

Whenever someone writes me to share how Brand Yourself has impacted them and their business, I get so excited.

Because that’s why I do this. I do it to help you. To remind you that you’re here on this planet for a reason – and that inner calling is something you gotta follow.

Ok, so, how are we celebrating this milestone???? With a giveaway!!!!

I’m giving away 3 brand therapy sessions.

Ok, so who is our guest today?

Emmy Marie

Emmy is a certified trauma-informed life coach and NARM practitioner who specializes in helping clients create thriving lives and relationships after trauma.

As an abuse survivor herself, Emmy understands the devastation trauma can have on our lives, and is committed to helping as many people as possible access their power and heal from trauma.

She supports clients in her 1:1 coaching program, as well as through courses, a monthly membership community, and speaking engagements. She is based in Oregon, USA, but sees clients virtually all over the world!

Emmy and I connected back in 2020 when she was just starting her business – and it’s been so cool to witness her work explode since then.

I’m really excited for you to hear how she turned one of the darkest seasons of her life into something that helps others.

We chat about:

  • The abusive romantic relationship she experienced as a teen, how that led to PTSD, and what she did to proactively heal and step on the path to recovery
  • How this lived experience turned into a passion for helping others move through their own trauma – and her pursuit of training in the field
  • What it looked like for her to start an anonymous instagram account, why that account grew so quickly, and how she took baby steps to become publicly visible
  • How she turned this initial online presence into a business with three core revenue streams – and the biggest challenges she’s faced offering those services
  • How her tendency to overachieve led to her burn out within the second year of business – and what she’s doing now to find more balance
  • And so much more!
