Take stock of the current state of your company and decide on what to do next.
You started this business with a passion and fire inside of you. You knew exactly what you wanted to do and how you were going to do it and now you feel a bit lost and confused. You feel like your audience isn’t hearing you. You know you can change lives, and while you’ve transformed many, you’ve hit a ceiling and just can’t figure out how to expand.
We feel unclear in our vision forward.
We attract the wrong kind of clients.
We are constantly reacting - putting out fires and doing damage control.
We just aren’t sure where to go from here.
We are trying to keep up in the day to day grind.
We have changed so much since we first started that it’s time for a total refresh.
Our website and marketing is stale.
We can’t get traction to increase sales.
Our offers are wildly different from each other.
These are all signs that you are underselling, barely connecting, and working too hard.
Just imagine ...
You begin your day calm, yet excited about what the day will bring. You and your team have a clear vision of the way ahead and you have your best fit clients knocking on your door. When your head hits the pillow at the end of the night, all you can think is, “Wow. Everything is running smoothly.”
Our entire team is on the same page, working toward the same goal.

What to Expect
To have a lasting impact, your business needs to be bigger than you and what you’re selling. It needs a long-term vision, strong sense of self, and a story that moves your audience (and team) to action.
We’ve taken a wide variety of research-backed best practices and boiled them down into an easily digestible, simple process that produces a truly concrete way ahead. Let's kick your weak brand to the curb!
Each week the team tackles the pre-work and then comes together for a 1-hour decision workshop.
3-8 teammates form the working group. These are your key players and implementors who share your vision and are passionate about creating change.
Your decisions get written in stone and we determine the step by step implementation plan to bring them to life.

Linsey and her great team led my partners and I through an amazing brand discovery process. I had never thought in terms of a process for discovery, yet I was surprised at how effective it was in helping us elicit and define our true brand.
If you are embarking on your own brand journey, I can highly recommend [Waymaker] as the Sherpas to lead you there. My advice, be patient and stick with the programs, it works!
It's really cool tying together all of the elements … It's difficult to identify impactful and material objectives for the organization [so this was] really useful!
While I was skeptical at first, Linsey and her team guided us step-by-step thorough a series of online exercises and interactions, motivating us to put serious thought in this important component of our business. Most important, in the end, we were successful in understanding and defining our brand, and we designed a cool logo to boot!
Was very helpful in getting everyone together to decide on "what is our core business?"
It clarified my thinking about our business.
Very thought provoking and well organized. Encouraged free thinking and helped me to focus.
