BYOB - Build Your Own Brand with Marija and Diana

3 Weeks


Cohort-based Course

Learn how to amplify your unique voice through your brand so you can make an impact that unlocks new opportunities in your career and beyond

Course overview

It's time to UNMUTE yourself

If you want to grow in your career, start something on the side, monetize your content (influencer marketing is on the rise), or dream of building a business someday, your brand will play a massive role in your success. 

We know it’s important, but “building a brand” can seem daunting. The fear of being judged by others, mixed with not knowing exactly what to say or if you’re even “qualified” to say anything, can paralyze you.

You have a lot of walls up, but with Build Your Own Brand (BYOB), you'll learn how to break these walls down. In this cohort class, you’ll identify what your own 'thing' is, learn strategies to polish your message and tap into your authentic brand with confidence so you can reach new heights. Where you want your brand to take you is up to you. You can go from gaining awards and recognitions in your industry, never having to depend on a resume ever again to land your next job to generating a new stream of income.

Learn from award-winning Customer Success Strategists who built their brands and made enough revenue through their brands to replace their tech roles with their businesses successfully. As former leaders at ClickUp and Catalyst, Marija and Diana experienced how a powerful personal brand opens doors for new jobs, promotions, revenue opportunities, and recognized thought leadership.

About The Cohort

It's a 4-week-long intimate workshop-style course where we'll pour out all our learnings (successes and failures) and strategies. You can expect accountability and peer support to help you succeed throughout the course.

After knowing each other for many years, it took one cohort-based course Diana and Marija participated in to realize what they wanted to share with others–that's how BYOB was born.

What you’ll get out of this course

Get crystal clear on what you want to say and how you'll say it

You have experience. You have things to say! Find your voice, lean into your uniqueness, and build your brand from a place of authenticity. You're not just "building a brand" you're building your very own community.

A content creation game plan that isn't a one-size-fits-all approach

Learn ways of amplifying your brand and online presence by Identifying the channels that best fit your style, voice and purpose. Plus get access to proven content plans so you can grow sustainably. The hard part isn't getting started, it's maintaining your momentum.

Think big – it's not just about "building your brand" for the sake of it. Go beyond

Tap into the strategies to achieve your wider goals: getting promoted, getting a raise, monetizing your content, starting a side business or replacing your 9-5 with your business.

A community that keeps you on track and champions you every step of the way

You're not in this alone–there are many benefits of doing a cohort style courses (which we love) like meeting like-minded people, idea sharing, and keeping us accountable so we prioritize getting closer to our goals.
