You’ve worked so hard to get here.
You’ve spent a significant amount of time working in your industry, so you’ve amassed a great deal of expertise that you are ready to leverage for your next phase.
Now that you’ve decided to be intentional about your next phase, pursue what you’re most passionate about, and create a future on your own terms, you need a plan to take all of the expertise you’ve accumulated working in your field or building your business, and convert it into income.
You know you’ll need to finally step out from the shadows and put yourself out there. And to achieve the level of success that you’ve been dreaming of – a steady roster of clients who are clamoring to buy your knowledge, speaking engagements and media interviews that position you as the go-to expert – you’ve realized that you will have to build your brand.
My name is Amanda Miller Littlejohn, and this is the exact journey I’ve helped hundreds of people through as a public relations strategist and personal branding consultant. I’ve created a beautifully designed, easy-to-use resource to help you get the word out about yourself so that you can create income from what you know.
Introducing The Branding Box.
The Branding Box was inspired by my clients – people just like you – who have come to me for help to clarify their strengths and build a stronger brand presence around those strengths.
My work with my clients was greatly inspired by my own experience of getting laid off as a newspaper reporter while I had a newborn baby at home. In 90 days, I was able to triple my previous full-time income by repeating a series of steps to tell people about who I was, what I could do and why they should hire me. I have continued to use this framework to build a flexible six-figure business by working only on the projects and with the people who are the best fit for me.
The Branding Box combines my proven public relations strategies, my most often taught brand lessons, insight into the most common mistakes I see, and the inspiration you need to help you quickly build a personal brand that you can monetize.
If you are looking to build your brand, pursue your passions and package your genius – for profit – this is the resource that ties it all together.
Do you KNOW that you have true expertise – a message, system or service that can help others in an extraordinary way – but you’re not sure how to turn that knowledge and experience into repeat income?
Are you tired of being your industry’s best-kept secret? Are you frustrated because you provide a SUPERIOR service, but not enough people know who you are, and you can’t figure out how to get found by your market?
Do you STRUGGLE finding the words to depict the transformation your offer provides? Although your service or offer is superb, do you feel that your message is unclear and people don’t understand what exactly you do?
Do you long to be recognized as the Go-To Expert in your field, but have no idea how to make that happen?
Are you tired of watching people you know don’t provide the same level of results that you do – the amateurs in your field – get all of the awards, attention, and recognition?
If so, the Branding Box can help you go from best kept secret to “where has she been hiding?!”
“I was interested in gaining an external, objective perspective that would help provide an injection of fresh new ideas into my business. The Branding Box provided me a systematic process for identifying how I could further differentiate myself in the marketplace by specifically determining what truly sets me apart and makes my type of service offerings unique.
Even seasoned marketing and communications professionals can gain tremendous benefit from the insights provided in the Branding Box. What I particularly valued is that it is chockfull of actionable, practical ideas that are transformative. And it is provided in a format that is easy to use, and kept me accountable on my journey.”

“I’m a supply chain expert and many clients don’t initially understand what supply management is and how it can help their business become more profitable. I bought the Branding Box to get clear on my brand messaging so that I could effectively communicate what I do and how I can help position my clients as preferred providers in the marketplace. Going through the exercises in the Branding Box helped me to get the ideas out of my head and it helped me to identify new target markets that I had not previously considered.
The Branding Box is an excellent branding and marketing guide for savvy entrepreneurs wanting to craft their brand messaging.“

“When I ordered the Branding Box, I felt like I had so many personal interests that I wanted to incorporate into a business. Amanda and the Branding Box helped me understand what was a business/profit center vs what was a creative passion, outlet or hobby. I had so many ‘aha” moments.
Since ordering the box, I have had my first speaking engagment on leadership; I was selected to help my regional vice president with a new project on employee engagement, and I now know how to document all of my success.
The Branding Box helped me collect my thoughts and put things down on paper. It served as the first step to a successful process. Step two is the little book of brand lessons which speaks volumes and has some of the best nuggets of info blended with motivation!!! Finally the brainstorm session was amazing! This is the perfect program towards personal branding success.”
