Course Description

Make Every Client Want Your Product Through Powerful Personal Branding & Brand Design

Did you know you can create a visually powerful brand even if:

  • you have no idea what personal branding is, let alone how to (brand) design
  • your cash cow died of shiny object syndrome last fall AND
  • your schedule is more stuffed than Pamela Anderson’s fake breasts?

My name is Nathalie, I’m a highly-sensitive serial entrepreneur, and I show non-techy small business owners how to build & brand a biz on a budget.

(And how to make every client want your products through powerful personal branding & brand design).   

Crappy branding & brand design will kill your business before you even have a business.


1) Grabbing your ideal client by their eyeballs with powerful personal branding through

  • perfect brand (or product) colors,
  • matching brand (or product) fonts,
  • a great brand logo and
  • beautiful branded social media pages

is the FIRST steps towards entrepreneur’s heaven.

(That's where countless clients are telling their BFFs, colleagues and librarians about you and ONLY you.)

The next step?

2) Your "special sauce”, i.e. ALL THE AWESOME THINGS which make YOUR personal brand or product so much more attractive than the other ones on Online Square.

3) Add your unique brand copy, and you’ve got the perfect dinner experience.

(Engagement ring hidden in chocolate pudding included.)

YOU: “So what could still spoil my surprise, uuuhhmmm, DIY branding success?

ME: “High costs, little focus and zero fun.”

Do you fancy:

  • a HIGHLY ACTIONABLE course, showing you 
  • the crème de la crème of FREE (or super affordable) DIY DESIGN TOOLS and
  • my secret & super effective personal BRANDING SHORTCUTS which will help you
  • generate RESULTS FAST?

(So that you can get back to binge-watching Netflix without feeling guilty?)

Then I want you so “sing along” while I’m designing the brand of fictitious health coach Anna Simpson together with you.


Are you ready for some serious DIY branding & brand design kick-assery to

  • create a powerful biz or product,
  • whip up your special, client-attracting super sauce and
  • learn how to effectively write copy that truly connects with your ideal clients AND makes them want to wallpaper their bedroom with photos of you and your brand?

Then enroll & sing along with me!

Instructor Biography

Nathalie Chantal de Ahna, Serial Online Entrepreneur | Author | Udemy Instructor

My name is Nathalie and I built my first successful online business in 2006.

I'm a multi-passionate online entrepreneur, DIY designer & Holistic Health Strategist teaching small business owners how to efficiently build a brand and business with non-techy and inexpensive tools.

Because I can never sit still and learn new stuff more often than other people have regular bowel movements, I’ve started building other businesses, too.

With limited time.

(Because I have small kids).

And fun and non-nerdy tools.

(Because I’m still wearing a tech-onesie myself and don’t intend to ever grow into a full-blown nerd.)

Also, my French roots are allergic to over-priced tools and services, which is why I’ve become a Black Belt Master in Free But Effective Biz Tool Kung Fu.

(OK, I made up the black belt).

I do believe that every small business owner, tiny start-up or passionate kitchen table entrepreneur deserves a chance to grow without having to max-out any credit cards.

That’s why I enjoy putting together actionable & high-quality classes at budget-savvy prices.

Since absorbing without implementing is completely useless, I like to keep my lectures short and to the point.

Sing-Along style.So that YOU get results FAST.

I'm also highly-sensitive. This can be a real pain in the "you know where", but it also means that I'm not just saying things like:


I really am.

Can't wait to see you in our classroom!

xo, Nat

My very official CV:

Unlike many other "instructors", I have a college degree in teaching. I've got more than 15 years of teaching experience and worked both as an in-house trainer, a course and curriculum creator, as well as an online teacher.

Also, I'm a certified economic translator running my own agency, a certified orthomolecular nutritionist with additional qualifications in homeopathy, herbal medicine & NLP, I completed several online business trainings and I'm a student of hypnotherapy.

I'm a self-taught non-graphic designer creating stunning visuals with everyday tools and started my first successful online business in 2005.

I'm a published author, a highly-sensitive knowledge addict, and I've made it my mission to help other online entrepreneurs create visually compelling, traffic-driving content without having to sell their only child.
