As a creative — inspiration is what fuels you. But your creative integrity can often feel at odds with the bottom line thinking in business.
But one thing I know for sure —
your creative mindset is your distinct advantage.
You approach business as an art. You're tuned into culture, imagination, and human desire, seeing artful opportunity where others merely accept the status quo.
Your creativity matters —
you're here to make a mark.
But when you struggle to connect the creative vision in your head with what customers will actually pay you for, when the numbers feel foreign, when you worry about selling out, or feel overwhelmed with doubt and juggling all the things — the inspiration, impact, and income you came here for can elude you.
Brave Narrative is a guide and ally to connect your unique value to the right customers through human-centred brand + business alignment.

“We were looking to expand our sustainable skincare business from Vietnam to Canada but weren’t sure how to create a story that both resonates and appeals to this new market. We also wanted to develop a strategy as a decision-making tool for product development.
Things became much clearer after working with Alyssa. We started with brand strategy — which supported us to focus on our vision, values, and what differentiates us from other brands. The customer and industry research confirmed our vision to create gender-neutral luxury skincare, a space that had both strong demand as well as limited competitors.
Finally Alyssa helped us bring our vision to life through marketing strategy, copywriting, and collaborating on our brand video’s storytelling, production, and creative direction.
The vibe Alyssa created was very inviting for ideas and discussion. She is very knowledgeable and fun to work with. She knows how to bring out the most authentic, unique values and message of your brand and organize it in such a way that it resonates with your customers and positions you to succeed.”
