Brand VIP Days

8 hours of private coaching and pampering + A gorgeous city of your choice = Pure awesomeness.

Imagine TWO DAYS with no nagging clients, kids, emails or to-do lists to disturb you. 

In a fabulous city of your choice, you'll get quality 1:1 time with a branding pro, to focus solely on your dream business and brand. 

Totally indulgent brainstorming and coaching at its finest that'll leave you with some killer clarity and specific action steps to launch your business and brand (aka make more money, attract dream clients and create an online presence you're proud to show off.) 

Because, let's be honest: You can spend the next year trying to figure it all out, spinning your wheels and spending little bits of money here and there on budget-friendly designers and coaches (which adds up fast) who can only take you so far, OR you can decide that your business and dreams do matter (because they really do), and take this opportunity to invest in yourself the right way. 

My business didn't take off until I decided to start playing it big, aka cutting a $7,000 check for a single, VIP coaching session. *gulp*

While I definitely sweated bullets over how to pay for it (and told NO ONE, haha!) I decided to trust my gut and listen to that little voice inside that told me this was essential to my growth.

The results? Totally life-changing.

Now, with 10+ years under my belt and a looooong list of happy clients, I've decided to offer that same coaching magic that can only come during uninterrupted, amazing, one-on-one time with a qualified coach and branding pro. In other words:

I've designed this just for you. for a fraction of the price. 

You'll walk away totally confident with: 

  • Your moneymaking services and programs, outlined and ready to go.

  • Your deeper why (and why this is soooo important.)

  • Your authentically awesome tagline.

  • Your brand pillar words (this so important in your web copy and marketing materials!) 

  • Your ideal client profile (who do you reaaaalllly want to work with? Let's only target them, shall we?) 

  • A plan to move forward and execute your brand WITHOUT spending a fortune!

  • Your visual "brand identity" (AKA the "style" of all things to come: photoshoot, web design, logo, etc.)

  • Your website must-haves (your web designer will LOVE YOU for having this done)

  • The social media platforms that'll best serve your brand

  • A TON of other personalized surprises, bonuses and "aha" moments!

Specifically, You'll Get:

  • 2 days (8 hours total) of 1:1 of quality coaching time with yours truly, to dive deep into your business and brand. 

  • A full day at a high-end Airbnb home (I only stay at places with killer views) and a delish catered lunch.
  • A detailed Welcome Packet to help me get to know you before the intensive.
  • Plus: One 30-minute Follow-up Coaching Call with me after your session, to make sure you're on the right track!  
  • Need additional support from moi? I offer all of my VIP clients heavily discounted rates for any copywriting, web design and art direction services you may need from me after our session.  

Did I mention you can choose between 3 dreamy locations?

"With Valerie's clarity, I've totally revamped my image, brand messaging and my signature program. With her help, I made $27,000 right off the bat!! Valerie is so current and hip. She REALLY KNOWS HER BRANDING! I feel SO confident in the future of my business now. I'd recommend Valerie to anyone who wants to NAIL IT straight out the gate!!! I wish I had known her when I first started my business, I would have saved a ton of time and money. She is the real deal!"

-Heidi Brockmyre, Owner & Founder of Total Fertility Wellness™

"Valerie is responsible for my entire rebranding, including my photos, the look and feel of my website and the launch of my signature online program. She made sure everything was cohesive and appealing to my ideal client. She worked closely with my web designer and photographer to make sure everything was ON POINT. I never knew how much was possible online until I started working with her. Expect five-star, high-quality work from Valerie Howard. She rocks!!!" 

-Jared Jackson Dean, Owner of Salon Eleven & Jared Jackson Dean Salon, and Founder of Stylist Bootcamp™,


"What do I love about working with Valerie? Her enthusiasm. Her vision. Her clarity. With her guidance and support, my business has skyrocketed in a fantastic, new direction that feels fully aligned with my true purpose. I've been recommending Valerie all over the place and will continue to do so!"

-Pella Schafer Weisman, Relationship Coach


"Working with Valerie could easily change your life. She is more than just a brand coach, she is a catalyst for your greatest dreams. It's rare to find someone who cares so much about the success of everyone she works with. she has been phenomenal for my business. I just love her! PS. Even this photo - she styled everything for me! I wouldn't have taken these leaps in my biz without her." 

-Kelsey J. Patel, Owner of Pure Barre™ Beverly Hills, Pure Barre™ Minneapolis


"Valerie does great work and over-delivers like crazy. She helped us entirely rebrand and market our new business, develop an awesome online presence (she did our entire website) and create a brand that our customers now recognize and really love. We increased sales by 40% in our first quarter. Business is good! Thanks Valerie!"

 -Tony Chou, co-owner of Coco Fresh International™


"Just do it, you'll be really happy you did. I was super anxious about the investment, but it was beyond worth it. Like, beyond, beyond. I honestly felt like I got 3x the value and, after our day together, it was like my business magically started growing and clients started showing up out of nowhere. Before working with Val, I knew I was meant for something bigger, but the details were fuzzy. I was stressed and felt like like I was always spinning my wheels. Thanks to her, I'm now making more money and feel excited for the future of my business. SO WORTH IT." 

-Katelin Martini, owner of Pure Barre Downtown LA

Have we met?

Below, a few fun facts:  

  • I hold a Masters Degree in Branding & Communications from the University of Southern California (Go Trojans!)

  • I'm a certified copywriter (thanks again, Copyblogger) and a former reporter (I've covered everything from hospital ER's to the Marine Corps!) 

  • I'm also a certified Reiki II practitioner. This one surprises people. While I don't offer it as a paid service, I have been known to throw it into 1:1 sessions when needed ;)

  • I actually started my branding career in the water industry, flying around the United States coaching cities and utilities on how to better brand + market water conservation. Even got an award while I was at it, for launching California's first official water blog. So there's that.
