gets you out of Jargon-ville and into
Hi! I’m Maggy Sterner.
I’m a branding coach and business coach for small business owners, entrepreneurs, and business professionals, and I’m real as f**k.
We’re a good fit if you’re a coach, consultant, creative, healer, or business professional and you struggle to articulate what you do, online or out loud.
I guide you to clarity about what you offer, to focus your audience and niche, and to find simple, clear words to describe it to attract perfect clients.
My ideal clients know what they do – they’ve already been doing it – but they struggle to own their brand message with confidence.
That’s where I come in.
WHAT I BELIEVE ABOUT BRANDING
When you know who you are (and who you’re not), what you offer, who you serve, the problems you solve, and the results you deliver, marketing is super easy and fun because you know what you do, who you serve, and you have non-sales-y, no-bragging-required words to magnetize the right people.
I believe your brand is what you stand for and what you stand for is your brand.
I believe the most effective marketing is always just the truth, spoken from your heart.
MY PHILOSOPHY AS A BUSINESS COACH
I believe our businesses should support our lives. My business fits into my life.
It didn’t happen overnight, but it did happen on purpose. Over time, I designed my business to my specifications.
I want you to have that, too: A business you love, doing what you love for people you love working with.
I love helping my clients create businesses that are fun to run, that deliver consistent income, and magnetize perfect clients.
Otherwise, what’s the point?

How my experience helps you
I bring my training as a CTI coach and my experience as a radio and TV reporter for CBS News, a multilingual website content manager, an online user experience analyst at NPR, a writer, and a world traveler – plus everything I’ve learned from clients I’ve worked with – to our branding and business coaching relationship.
I can walk into the middle of a story (whether it’s a military coup, an erupting volcano, or your brand), see the essence of what’s going on, and translate it into words even your mom can understand.
My superpower is my ability to hear through your blah-blah and extract the bottom line.
My real job is to be the translator, detective, and brand clarity expert who listens deeply to hear into what you really do so you can hear it too.
