This week is all about expanding your brand. Renee talks it out with Australian native Aleisha McCormick. Aleisha is a TV producer by day and the creator of the Bridechilla podcast and online community. Learn how Aleisha expanded her brand by making mistakes, taking chances, and never letting failure slow down her success. So if you’re feeling burnt out and need a little tough love to motivate you, listen in!

Meet Aleisha McCormick

Aleisha McCormack is an Australian author, podcaster and TV producer. She has written, presented, and produced some of Australia’s most loved television and whilst in the UK has worked with ITV, BBC One and Channel 5. 

When the Bridechilla Podcast launched five years ago, it was recorded in her bedroom using a mic and ironing board. As she shared her experiences as a bride–how she blocked out pressure and obligation and horrified her family by not having chair covers–her audience grew. Now, Bridechilla has had over a million listens and helped thousands of brides become Bridechillas (‘chillas’ as they like to be called). The Bridechilla brand has expanded with the launch of The Bridechilla Wedding Planning Guides and the ever-growing Bridechilla Community on Facebook.

Key Takeaways on Expanding Your Brand:

– Aleisha’s Day Job Mentality
– How to Expand Your Brand While Fighting Fatigue
– Your Brands Community Will Keep You Growing
– Building a Book ( + Planner)
– Feelings Around the Risk
– Pivoting to Expand
– The FIB
