WHAT DO YOU DO?

I run a remote branding agency that helps small business babes build and grow profitable brands through strategy, design & non-fluff coaching.

When I'm not doing all those babe'n things you can find me traveling the world with my little boy (or as an even more fab Fro than me - how good!). 

WHAT STEPS DID YOU TAKE TO GET TO WHERE YOU ARE NOW?

I did the typical Design Degree majoring in Graphic Design and Animation at Unitec in New Zealand but never ACTUALLY worked in the industry untill 6 years later when I started my business. I built Brand Babes Studio with the sole goal to create a strong brand that would sell itself providing me with remote income so I can go live in Bali. And that's what I did. Now I teach small business babes how to design their own life and build the business that supports that.

How do you stand out in your field?

I understand the makeup of what a great brand needs and I do just that. Most of our clients will say "They just get it!." It's kinda that simple.

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON RIGHT NOW?

So many things, all the things #slashielife. But mainly adding digital products that will help our community create businesses that work for them. We just launched a killer eBook - "Your Step-by-step guide to working remotely in Bali". 

WHAT'S YOUR STYLE/PERSPECTIVE/TASTE? DO YOU HAVE A PROJECT THAT REPRESENTS THIS? 

Female Millenial brands are my jam! 

WE ARE ALL SLASHIES WITH MULTIPLE SKILLS, WHICH ONE DO YOU WISH YOU COULD DO MORE OFTEN?

Creating content! I launched a podcast this year called Babe Chats where we interview Australian and New Zealand Small Biz Babes to unpack what success looks like and how they use the power of branding to achieve that. I realized how much I love creating content (and the sound of my own voice).

WHAT IS FRUSTRATING YOU RIGHT NOW?

Working on the business - like putting digital products out to interwebs! We put our clients first as you should, but finding that balance to work on internal projects can be tricky!

IF YOU COULD HIRE SOMEONE FOR $20/HR, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE THEM DO TO MAKE YOUR DAY EASIER?

Finding common themes from my braindumped ideas (goodluck to that guy!).

LET'S BRING OUT THE TIME MACHINE. WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE TOLD YOURSELF, WHEN, AND WHY?

Design your life first! It's so easy to fall into this trap of this is what I should be doing rather than this is what I want to do wholeheartedly. Always do the thing that scares you. And also you got this girl! 

IF YOU COULD TALK TO AN EXPERT TO GAIN MORE INSIGHT ON SOMETHING, WHAT WOULD IT BE ABOUT?

Marketing digital products and automating sales funnels without complicating things (ya feel me?) 

WHAT KIND OF OPPORTUNITIES/PROJECTS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?

Working with like-minded babes is key (we work with man-babes too!). People who understand the importance of great branding but want an expert (that's me - Hi!) to do it for them.
 

DESCRIBE YOUR IDEAL JOB/CLIENT/COLLABORATION.

An ideal client is a babe that understands that it starts with a great brand and the rest will follow. 

WHAT IS YOUR HOURLY RATE, RETAINER, OR SALARY RANGE? 

My rate is project based - our projects start from $2490 NZD 

HOW SHOULD SOMEONE APPROACH YOU ABOUT WORKING TOGETHER?

Let's keep it simple - shoot me an email alarice@brandbabesstudio.com 

HOW DO YOU STAY CREATIVE?

Travel - it ignites my soul!
