About Blaze

WHO WE ARE

Blaze is decisive and divisive because when your best customers align with what you stand for (or against), it stands to reason that some won’t be able to take the heat and will go elsewhere. And that is EXACTLY what we want—for your rock-star target market to be attracted to your brand like a moth to flame as those are the people you will do your best work with and for—while the energy vampires that ask you to burn the candle at both ends self-select out before engaging with you.

We care about what YOU care about. Your passion drives ours. We’re not just along for the ride…we’re proud to be part of the change you make in the world. That’s the change we make as part of the ripple effect. Multiplied because of your impact. (That multiplies the change we make and we love it!)

We help purpose-driven, service-based organizations increase their impact to change the world. We love supporting those who are making the world a better place. And we found the way to do that because our core genius is being able to communicate yours.

Want to know if we’re a good fit for you?  Schedule a quick call to talk it through.

We love what we do. We believe that igniting the passion behind your brand drives impact. Everyone who experiences your brand—internally or externally—should be able to sense the passion behind that brand, feel its energy, and want to engage with you. When your values align with those you do your best work with and for, the message you want to convey is received—and it resonates, blazing a trail for your audience to follow.

Your brand can only shine on the outside if it is lit from within.

We believe in impact over income. Because we believe that ultimately, your impact drives your income.

Testimonials

“To me, this Brand-in-a-Day event was the perfect example of the advice “don’t try this at home” because I realized within the first hour, I didn’t know what I didn’t know about branding! This day was exactly what I needed to focus, tease out even more of my thoughts, benefit from experts’ thoughts, and tie it all together to actually leave with the results my business was starving for: an overall brand image, a logo, a tagline, and lots of brand “pieces” to incorporate into various marketing strategies later. Thank you for a day so well spent!”

“Working with Jeffri-Lynn and the Blaze team during Brand-in-a-Day, I was caught by surprise. I felt pretty sure I’d leave the experience with some tangible working tools that would provide structure for my business brand but I was blown away by the level of personalized attention dedicated to my needs and challenges. I left the workshop – yes with a structure – but also with depth – brand pillars that I can lean on with confidence…and even better… we had fun in the process! Moving forward, I have everything I need to craft my marketing for the clients I want and to bring my unique impact to the community.”

Melia Dunn

“Jeffri-Lynn and her team are bursting with energy and passion for this work. She facilitated our Brand-in-a-Day’s workshop in a way that allowed for creativity, collaboration, inspiration–and got results. Her enthusiasm for every business owner in the room was apparent and I left with more than just beautiful branding. She helped me clarify my business goals, vision, messaging, produced a brand that authentically represents who I am and what I offer.”
