Let's Work Together

There’s a story inside of you, and it wants to get out.
This story can create a brand that starts movements, transforms people’s lives, and most importantly, moves them to action. But before all that... that story needs to lodge itself into a nook of your audience's heart. That’s how people will listen.


My vision is to empower active dreamers to create and share a story so compelling, resounding, and real, that it will manifest:
- A brand that conveys heart and soul
- A clearly communicated vision that supports your life/business and motivates your audience to take action
- The trust and loyalty of those you influence with your message


I want to work with you if you are:
- An active dreamer: someone with a vision and commitment to manifesting dreams into reality
- An entrepreneur at heart: you’re hungry to make a difference and yearn to use your talents to change the world around you
- Ready to explore your full potential: no more hiding your love and passion - it’s time to mean what you say, and say what you mean


If you’re struggling with messaging that is ambiguous, confusing, or inconsistent, or just want to refresh your brand’s identity, I’m here to help you bring that story of yours to life. Here’s how:

 

Brand Identity + Storytelling Coaching

Ideal for entrepreneurs and businesses looking to identify, strengthen, and effectively communicate their brand story

Whether you are revamping your current business or creating a new one, developing a strong brand identity and story is essential for authentically connecting with your target audience, differentiating from competitors, and defining the type of content you need to create.

Through creative brainstorming and coaching sessions, we will:

  • Develop core value pillars that represent what your brand stands for

Personal Branding + Life Design

Ideal for entrepreneurs and individuals looking to identify and bring to life the best version of themselves

The life that you lead, and how you influence people along the way, ultimately comes down to the story you choose to tell to yourself and others.

If you approach personal branding solely as some marketing tool to get you a better job, that’s all it will ever be. Sure, having a strong personal brand will advance you in your career, but it can do so much more than that.

You are not a product: like everyone else on this planet, you are a person with a story to tell. So, what makes your story unique? Why should someone listen to and be influenced by you? How can you leverage your personal brand to change the way you live and present yourself?

That’s where I come in. Together, we will:

  • Identify your life vision and value proposition

  • Create a powerful personal story that resonates with your audience and moves them to action

  • Leverage your online communication to provide your audience with value

  • Develop a communication style that is natural and uniquely yours

  • Learn how to pitch yourself and create an influential presence

Creative Storytelling Collaboration

Ideal for brands looking for a refreshing, captivating, and unconventional approach to marketing their story through an influencer partnership

You have a product, place, or service you want the world to know about, and want to tell that story in a way that doesn’t sound… well… repetitive and cliché.

There’s something really unique and special about your brand, and you may not even know what it is. I’ll find it, and I will tell your story in a way that is beautiful, human, relatable, and gives justice to your vision.

Here’s how it works: I explore the place, product or service, and create customized branded content based on what I experience. This content, which you can use on your own channels, will be showcased to an audience of at least +40,000 of my loyal followers across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

It’s worthy to note that I have influence outside of just social media: I am a regular contributor for major U.S. publications such as Forbes, HuffPost, Intrepid Travel, Rosetta Stone, Matador Network, and Intrepid Urban Adventures, have been ranked as one of the most influential and stunning travel accounts on the planet, and and have written for + been featured in publications including Buzzfeed, MediaPost, Marie Claire, World Nomads, and Business Insider.

Collaboration opportunities include:

  • Sponsored press trips with on-site brand coaching

  • Sponsored short story posts on my social media channels

  • Thought pieces (articles, guest blog posts, etc)

  • Creative storytelling content creation (writing, video, photography)

My past clients include: boards of tourism, yoga and co-working retreats, travel companies, and clothing/beauty brands in 20+ countries.

Please send proposals to celinnedacosta@gmail.com, and more information can be found in my media kit.


Testimonials

People have said some pretty cool stuff about my work. If my words don’t have you convinced, here’s what my clients think:

“I had a brand identity workshop with Celinne because we are on the verge of really breaking through internationally with our company, but want to do that through our branding. We are a Dutch company selling laser machines through our European partner network and our goal is to establish ourselves as the #1 brand worldwide.

The question therefore was: What do we stand for as a company, what differentiates us from everyone else, and how do we communicate this with our brand messaging?

Sitting down with Celinne to break down my company’s vision has really made me connect the dots, within just a few hours. Her ability to ask the right questions and poke the right spots, while keeping track of the progress of the break-down is really admirable.

I would highly recommend any business owner who’s looking to have clarity on how to execute on their vision to have a branding workshop with Celinne. You will be able to determine what your company stands for and add value there, but more so, gain understanding of what your core is as a person. And that’s something that is valuable for life!”

- Bram van Turnhout, Commercial Director & Co-Owner of BRM Lasermachines, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

 

"Celinne opened my eyes about storytelling. I thought that I was doing it quite well, but I was utterly wrong. There were so many opportunities that I wasn’t tapping into, and after several workshops together, I started to fall in love with my brand all over again.

Celinne has a special talent for digging into the truth of things. With her, I went way more in-depth about why I started my business and for whom. She got rid of my sales pitch, and made it a beautiful human story, way more fun to tell!

We all have this real reason inside us, but it is so hard to discover it on your own. When you hire Celinne, she will change the way you sell your business, and it won’t feel like selling it anymore. I am happy that we can continue to work together since it is so valuable for Coworkparadise and myself!"

- Michael Tesselaar, Founder of Coworkparadise, The Netherlands

 

“As a trainer/coach/consultant in the fields of connecting communications, mindfulness-meditations and emotional intelligence I was developing concepts to reach, interact and help more people than I could do with the traditional f-2-f coach-client model.

I had a couple of ideas of what my vision and values were but I was missing a red line, a structure or framework where I could relate all that I do now and in the future. Most of my exercises about creating a vision and values led to some fancy keywords and slick payoffs which changed all the time and didn't hold the vision together.

With Celinne as my guide in the field of brand ID, it became more and more clear what it is that I am providing, to whom and why that matters (also to myself). Celinne really breaks it down, questions the words, bringing it back to the core and helping me to stay connected with myself so I kept going in the right direction. Now I have a clear vision in what is what, how and why I am solving, generating and doing the things I do.”

- Dick-Jan Leegwater, Personal & Business Development Trainer, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

 

"Celinne’s strategy development sessions have been such a valuable resource for my brand, offering tangible solutions that I was able to implement into my business. She helped me with how to attract clientele, create a story for my brand that resonates with others, and most importantly find the real value that my brands offers to others. If you need someone to guide your brand in the right direction, providing actionable steps that you can take to thrive, then Celinne is the person to talk to!"

- Ariel Viera, Founder of Urbanist, New York City, USA

 

"Celinne is a client at my salon, and now I am hers. As we got to know one another during the service, there was just something about her personality and intelligence. I was hooked on how much she knew about marketing strategy and branding. 

I've been working with Celinne for a few months now, and I've seen vast improvements in my business. She has been able to dissect and educate me on marketing. In fact, the tools I have learned from her has been so imperative to my business that I am now leading and mentoring others on what she has taught me. 

Not only is Celinne knowledgeable in this field, but she truly cares about people's business. I am very much appreciative of my experience and growth with her."

- Jamielynn De Leon, Founder of Rogue Hair Salon, New York City, USA

 

"Thank you Celinne for the guidance you provided me with. It allowed me to clear out the obstacles I was experiencing with the social media part of my business. It's amazing how much clarity I gained since talking to you and applying the steps necessary to move forward with my desired outcome. I am forever grateful and I will definitely be working with you again in upcoming projects."

- Ralph Ruiz, Master Life Coach, New York City, USA

 

"I had the pleasure of knowing Celinne through a common friend for a few years and have seen her grow her own image and brand with great success and seemingly little effort (emphasis on seemingly). When I decided that I needed to work on building and establishing my own brand, it seemed obvious to go to her.

Within the course of 45 minutes, Celinne had not only clearly laid out a structured plan and blueprint to grow from, but she also had me asking the right questions. More importantly, I was answering those questions. I could see what the logical next step was. She made sure to reinforce that these changes are not overnight, that you have to start somewhere and then continually add layers.

How she communicated her thoughts, ideas and criticisms was what set her apart. She has the ability to objectively consider your goals and what you're trying to build, and then put those attributes into a plan of action that is clear, easy to follow, and extremely effective.

If you are looking to quickly define, refine, and maximize your brand's structure, I highly recommend sitting down with Celinne. Preferably before your competition does."

- Michael Everett Wood, Actor, New York City, USA

 

"I work in digital content marketing and I'm in contact with a lot of journalists for many years now, and I have to say that Celinne is a really unique and creative person in her approach of working. She knows how to surf between creativity, humanity and professionalism.

Celinne was willing to live new experiences with our company even though it was not in her plan at the beginning. As the result, she created deep and interesting content that was appreciated by our community on social media. The outcome of her work contributed to progressing our work on ocean preservation and people's awareness toward marine protection on international digital platforms.

More than just a good professional, Celinne is a really nice person. Our team has really appreciated her presence and sympathy. I wish her all the best in the future and hope keeping in touch to follow her beautiful journey."

- Virginie Casse, Sales and Marketing Manager, Bali, Indonesia

 

"I have worked with many writers over the years, and I have to say that Celinne is one of the best I've met. She has a natural talent for storytelling and digging beyond the superficial, exploring true cultural connections and experiences -- something that's a rare skill in today's travel media industry. The pieces that she's written for me have been consistently stellar, and have also been some of our biggest drivers of website traffic, proving that her work resonates with readers. Her writing is excellent, she delivers on assignments as promised, and on top of that, she's just a fun and lovely person to work with. Anyone who gets to work with Celinne is very fortunate to have her on their team."

- Tammy Burns, Content Marketing Specialist at Urban Adventures, Ontario, Canada

 

"Celinne is highly detail-oriented and self-organized. She is able to quickly understand the essence of a project and comes with quality results. It was our utmost privilege to work with her, and the outcome of her work has helped multiple rural communities of Nepal to get their voices heard on the international platforms. 

Celinne has this special gift of storytelling of an issue through the power of her own words. Especially, when we were working together for the development of the rural communities Homestays and women empowerment in Nepal - her article subjecting the beauty and efforts of local women in the development of the communities in Nepal has drawn the attention of thousands of people from around the world. And, within a few weeks, we could see the instant effects of her work/article on our communities. 

We would like to express our gratitude and wish her all the best for her future."

- Shiva Dhakal, Founder of Royal Mountain Travel, Kathmandu, Nepal
