About Us

You may know us from the internet, but we’re real people.

First, Let’s Talk About YOU!

They say that behind every great business is a great tribe. That’s why our mission is to empower you and inspire you to embrace your gifts to create great change in the world — both for you… and the people you serve.

It’s common for people with incredible gifts to try to hide their gifts, and try to fit in. To try to be “normal”… until one day, fitting in becomes impossible. That’s why our tagline is “Be the Superhero to Your Tribe.”

We’re here to give you the tools & strategies you need to focus your power, potential & purpose into the right focused action, so you can build a business that expresses who you are… and change the world in the process.

The fact is that there are 3,536,419,723 people online right now. But only ONE you.

At Live Your Message, we help people be the most bold, colorful, vibrant expression of who they are online. Because, in this day and age, that’s the only way to cut through the noise of a billion websites and actually be heard. That’s how you become a superhero.

Right here right now, you have the opportunity to reach people around the world from Timbuktu to your backyard… people who are waiting to hear your message, people who’ve been searching for someone like you — for you — to help them solve a problem that they can’t solve on their own or attain an aspiration that they’ve had but can’t reach on their own or simply buy something they need that they can’t make on their own.

When you build your platform, when you become internet famous, you can literally change the world from your living room.

You don’t have to rely on CNN, Oprah or Simon & Schuster to get your message out for you.

You are in control of your destiny online.

Our Mission

We turn entrepreneurs into online superheroes.

We do that through creating authentic and iconic brands and websites for leading-edge clients such as Justin Livingston, Callan Rush, Danny Iny, Sage Lavine, Alexis Neely, and many more.

We also train entrepreneurs with a big message for the world how to build their own platform through online branding, marketing and storytelling.

In an industry that often feels like the Wild West, we know the difference between fool’s gold and real gold.

You are the real gold… not Periscope, Penguin or Panda.

We help online entrepreneurs get off the technology treadmill, find their true voice, and build an enduring online platform that will long outlive the “trend-of-the-moment”.

Our goal is to help 1 million entrepreneurs take their business out of what we call “the blue sky phase” and into the real world where they can make a real difference.

After 7 years of working in the nonprofit world, trying to spark change from the top down, we now realize that the world doesn’t change from the top down. It changes from the bottom up. It changes when each of us gathers the courage to do what we’re here to do… and learns the tools and strategies to share our message with the world.

We believe that business is one of the greatest forces for personal development and change on the planet. Now go out there and…

What We Do

Training

As Jim Rohn famously said, “You can’t hire someone else to do your push ups for you.”

As a business owner, it’s important to learn the core strategies and skill sets for creating your own success.

While most business trainers, focus on the latest trends and tactics that are here today and gone tomorrow.

In our experience, the path to enduring internet fame and impact does not happen at the push of a button, it’s not a happy accident, it’s based on timeless business success principles that will work long after Twitter & Instagram are distant memories.

Services

In an industry full of business trainers, there’s an elephant in the room.

Building an online business takes some specialized skills such as branding and web design… and who’s going to do all that work?

We don’t recommend trying to do it yourself, or hiring your niece or nephew to do it for you.

That’s why we’ve created a full-service online agency to build the branded sites you need to stand out online and convert visitors into buyers.

Whether you’re just starting out or already making 7 or 8-figures, we have packages for you.
