Are you a holistic entrepreneur who is also:
a healer or intuitive...
...who is expanding a one-on-one model into an online, group-based, or program-based model of working?
...stepping onto new stages and getting attention for your one-on-one services, products, or content offerings?
a teacher OR CREATIVE...
...who is ready to take some in-person programs and solid workshop ideas into an on-line brand and business model?
...who’s making great strides in Amazon bestseller lists or getting prominent guest blogging opportunities?
...who has an intuitive way of working with clients that may even be invisible to those you work with, but is the secret sauce to your success?
If any of the above describe you, then consider this: a brochure site may give people a way to find you and get familiar with your offering, but will it compel people to be drawn to you, feel a deep connection with you and your work, or represent you in your highest vibration and value? Chances are that what you really need are materials that speak directly to your tribe and capture the essence of your soul.
This is the question to ask yourself: do you just want a site, or do you desire an Online Temple of Attraction that will really impact your bottom line and put you in alignment with your calling and most ideal clients, collaborators, and customers?
You know your website will be the first point of contact that many people have with you, and the content they find can actually inspire and excite them; it can create raving fans within your ideal audience — i.e. the people you most love to play with. Your Online Temple of Attraction can elevate you as the High Priestess of your area of expertise so that your tribe will take notice and engage with you in a long term relationship that creates true satisfaction for you and for them.
An Online Temple of Attraction goes beyond creating a website. Unfortunately, most people will only visit your website once or twice, to see if they want to take the relationship further.
Creating an Online Temple of Attraction involves creating a brand image that is reflected in all your communications. And that asks you to be the High Priestess Brand Manager, the one who directs the energy and takes responsibility for continued, aligned correspondence with your tribe.
That’s just what I teach you to do in my Soul Brand Secrets group program.
"Just Need a Website?"
Hidden Questions Muddy the Path
As an intuitive artist and web developer, I worked many years designing mostly turn-key websites for happy clients. People often remarked on my uncanny ability to just "get them" and make something that felt visually authentic to them. However, a surprising number of times the journey toward a completed site would be frought with frustration and confusion when seemingly clear project plans got thrown off track; I started to observe that many clients who approached me with what we we had believed was complete picture of the path ahead, would discover by surprise that they had some big concerns in their business itself that needed sorting out before the brand or website could be fully realized.
I would often support them with answering the unanswered questions they hadn't realized were there from the beginning. After years passed working with dozens of clients and finding ways to be of greater support in the wide variety of concerns my clients had regarding business strategy and technology and how it all connected to their brand and website, I developed a deep understanding of common business problems and solutions, especially as concerned the empathic business owners who tended to cross my path. I became a confidant, a supporter of big dreams, a creative concierge to their vision.
When that client's seemingly clear path became muddy due to internal confusion, lack of business clarity, lack of ideal client clarity, and fears of becoming more visible for their gifts, my process would change to accommodate and problem solve these bigger picture issues so we could get to the meat of the work.
In the end, the client received a site they loved, but with an unexpected journey. Ultimately, I felt ready and willing to show up for whatever the client needed; after all, the creative process can be a messy one, as I understood all too well. But I knew there had to be a better way to support those I wished to serve.
In essence the problems were more energetic, internal, and strategic than they were about the execution of the visual and messaging components of their brand.
And after they left my container, they had the hard work of having to execute their brand day-to-day, to share their message with their tribe with consistent, on-brand visibility. It’s not like the questions and explorations stopped the moment they were done working with me! In fact, that’s when all the hard work (and greater confusion and fear) usually began.
This is why I developed the Soul Brand Secrets program. To honor the strategic and energetic components of managing your brand. To give you the tools to feel empowered to message powerfully and attract the clients who will love what you do and be ready to pay according to the value of what you offer.
All with an eye toward the unique needs of visionary, intuitive, and creative people like you who are seeking a more authentic, high integrity, and embodied approach to your promotions.

Intrigued but not totally sure this is what you need?
It can be tempting to just jump to a logo and website design and think that all your work is done…
Let me ask you some questions to make sure you're truly in alignment with your brand and online presence and really prepared to jump to that stage of the process.
If you are, great! If not, these might be clues that your brand and vision could use a few tweaks, and would benefit from the Soul Brand Secrets program:
Do you have trouble explaining what you do to people in networking contexts or in work inquiries?
Do you feel like you're wasting a lot of time in sales calls and not feeling able to connect the dots for people who seem to be ideal clients? Or are you having trouble closing the gap between people's expectations of what you do and how you really do your work?
Do you ever feel concerned when sharing business materials or discussing your work with others that your passions and interests may come off scattered and unconnected?
Do you have a program that’s been dragging in sales or interest and you can’t figure out why?
Are you exhausted by trying to keep up with all of your current one-on-one and program offerings? Does it feel overwhelming to think about how you are going to bring it all together in a new brand?
Does your current website convey a clear message throughout, or is it fragmented and scattered? Do you have a plan to create a more cohesive message, with a specific client profile in mind?
Does your current site it reflect an older version of you and your offering? Have you created a new content map to not only bring this information up to date, but allow you room to grow and breathe as your brand and business continue to evolve?
Do you often worry that your offerings are priced too low or too high?
Do you feel as if you’re constantly paying for resources to keep your business afloat and never quite moving forward? Are you afraid that this next investment is going to put you in the same place as you've been before?
Are you finding that you have too many unpleasant relationships with clients or difficulty attracting the customers who will really get you? Do you find yourself often wishing that you could just find the people you really want to connect and work with?
Are you tired of what you’re doing now and know the next step, but not how to implement and position it?
Have you done brand or web work in the past and been hesitant to be publicly visible for the newest incarnation of your business after a bit of time passed? Did it start to feel out of alignment almost immediately after you launched it?
Do you sometimes struggle to remember why you felt passionate about your work in the first place, yet are compelled to keep going despite the challenges? Do you sense that something core needs to change if you are going to be able to keep going?
Do you feel like you are still hiding some of your gifts, personality traits, and passions out of a feeling of necessity, to cater to a particular market or because, "That's just what you do when you're in business?"
If you’ve said yes to any of these, then perhaps you haven’t made a connection between your brand and business issues. However, at the root of all of these problems is a lack of core clarity and alignment, and the path toward a clear and successful brand is the same path you travel to a clear and successful business.
When you are clear on your direction and how that plays out in your Soul Brand, then it unravels many of these common issues that sovereign business owners face.
What You Get with a Soul Brand
Now you know the deeper how and why behind this unique process and package... You see that the Soul Brand Secrets program is a process I developed that evolved out of eighteen years of helping clients find marketing, design, and soul fulfillment in their businesses.
It isn’t just a product or result; it’s a personal and business revolution.
Soul Branding involves configuring and considering every aspect of your business to create a cohesive message and vision.
It includes obvious things like:
Your unique Soul Offer. (Traditionally called your niche… but that’s too limiting for my Spirit-led clients.)
Your ideal clients and customers.
Your program and product offerings.
Your marketing message.
Your visual elements: colors, logo, photography.
But a Soul Brand is so much more than that. It also includes:
Your personal dreams and aspirations.
Your day-to-day habits and beliefs around your business.
Your strengths (things that strengthen you) and weaknesses (things that weaken you).
Your money picture and foundation.
Your energy signal.
Your ability to feel aligned, honest and in integrity with your work and image.
Your creative expression.
And, most importantly: the clear transmission of your soul’s frequency.
I’ve helped build nearly a hundred sites and brands over the years. I can tell you that I noted much more follow through and long term success with clients who went through this process than those who opted for a turn key solution.
This is what I ask those who are considering getting someone to “just do your brand for you.
I've seen the gamut. People with simple sites. People with empty sites. People with gorgeous, glossy sites.
The success or failure of a business has so much more to do with internal reasons than external ones. And people put way too much energy around their site when their brand mostly lives elsewhere.
Here are some reasons your brand might not succeed:
Poor foundational work on your business.
A scarcity picture, or a martyr/saint mockup that accompanies many intuitive, creative, and healing arts career paths.
Unconsciously adopting a path that comes from a “should” place instead of your most highly aligned soul path and authentic passions.
A lack of consistency in your message because of a lack of clarity in your desired result.
And the biggest one of all: the "fraud" syndrome that can hit hard, especially after a new business vision and brand have been implemented.
In the Soul Brand Secrets process, we solve all of the above problems so that you not only feel empowered to lead the creation of a powerful website, but you also implement a powerful messaging strategy that will be the living, breathing essence of your business and leadership platforms. And you will work through all of the blocks that stand in the way of you stepping into powerful visibility and prosperity.
You want to make sure that your gifts, desires, goals, and messaging are truly aligned to get the right signal out in the world and attract your ideal clients and partners so you can fully manifest your passions.
About Theresa Pridemore
Sovereign Spirit, High Priestess,
Brand Genius, Web Whisperer
By now, you've gotten to know a bit about me, my approach, and how my work evolved. I'm dedicated and passionate about the work I do, and I love the opportunities I get to co-create with my clients.
I've lived in Portland seventeen years, having grown up in Mississippi, with an early childhood in Germany. I trained as a graphic communications specialist and artist in college and flew to the west coast to make my mark as soon as I was done with my studies. While I made connections easily with people and found myself able to understand any new group and relate, I ultimately knew that I needed to find my tribe. I was the most inside outsider I knew. Well-loved by such an eccentric group of people, and still not somewhere I could fully be my authentic self.
I worked for several companies along my path, learning more about my field and making great friends as I went along. But I still didn't quite fit in, as much as I tried.
The truth was, I was not of the right ilk to work in a traditional office. I eventually realized that I was a Sovereign Spirit, with my own way of doing things. I wasn't stubborn or resistant, I just needed to feel a sense of deep purpose and connection in my work. I also had to be able to honor my own physical and energetic needs as an empathic and energy-sensitive person, both of which suffered greatly in the often political and high stress environments of design and interactive agencies. And most of all, I needed to feel I was honoring my own creativity, having the opportunity to follow my own curiosity and support others in doing the same for themselves.
After several years of working on my own, I tested this theory once, taking a "real job" for one year because it seemed to make sense at the time. Quite honestly, that experience put back my health and internal sense of well being two or three years; dealing with poor, often tyrannical management; working unreasonable hours; and trying to be a support for wronged, fellow employees took its toll on me. Luckily, I learned what not to do if I wanted to stay sane and happy. I met my incredible husband at this job, too.
I also got another bonus: I realized once and for all just how much I loved my business and found myself even more deeply curious about how to make it fully sustain me and those I supported. I would never again fall for someone else's image of what my life and career should look like. I would dedicate myself to living my life authentically and abundantly and support others to do the same.
Now I feel an immense amount of freedom to pursue my creative interests; those that benefit my clients as well as my own artistic projects. I created the popular Portland Tarot deck and Sovereign Oracle deck, acted for one season as a producer on the well-loved live talk show The Late Now, and continue to create short films and digital art in the time I make for myself alongside my client work. I believe in our sacred right to remain curious and engaged in all we do, and I take this realized vision of balance and creative satisfaction to my clients and their endeavors.
I have proven through my own businesses that you can be sustained doing what you love. From seemingly traditional businesses to creative ones, I bring an immense sense of exploration, curiosity, and pragmatism to the work I do. Also, a little bit of a rebel; client's need that when it's time to step out of their comfort zone and fully embrace the badasses that they truly are.
The Sovereign Spirit Lifestyle
Supported by Your Soul Brand
and Online Temple of Attraction
There is a strong connection between lifestyle and a successful brand. Here are the myriad ways a well-functioning Soul Brand and Online Temple of Attraction can positively affect your life, both personally and in your business:
When you attract your ideal customers and co-creators, you look forward to your days and the people you get to spend your time with.
When you can clearly communicate your vision, values, and offerings, your time in consultations, sales calls, and networking situations becomes more focused and effortless. You spend more of your time developing relationships with people who are already warm leads and leaning in.
When your lead generation tools are dialed in, working hard on your behalf to entice, engage, and educate potential customers and clients, you have more free time to explore your curiosity, exercise your creativity, or enjoy your home life.
When you have a clear and authentic brand, developing content, programs, and connecting with your tribe becomes joyful, fun, and simple. Some days it will even feel like play.
When you feel clear on how to communicate about yourself, you spend more time enjoying your connections, networking, and new client relations and less energy worried about what you will say next. This gives you a deep sense of spaciousness that permeates your quiet moments and leaves room for daydreaming and visualization.
When the basics of your brand and business are fully realized, you are freed up to experiment with new ideas and clearer on how it all ties to your big picture. Smaller projects with a big picture view have a better success rate, are easier to maintain, and tend to have greater chance at longevity. With longevity, your projects and programs will have the chance to evolve and change with the clarified or changing needs of your client base. When you take the long, big picture view, you can spend less time rushing from thing to thing, and take more time to do things the "right" way... and stay sane doing them, too.
When you know who your clients are, you spend less time chasing wrong fits and less energy trying to be ten different people for ten different audiences. Spend all that money and time on the vacation you probably never get to take!
When your business brand is fully aligned with your values and mission, when you feel totally comfortable being visible as the spiritual, intuitive being you are, this creates a deep feeling of brand integrity that everyone around you will notice and be moved by. The right customers are drawn to this kind of alignment; the joy you will feel in giving others permission to be their truest selves within your shared work will fill your cup and give you a deep sense of meaning and purpose.
Every day that you feel like a High Priestess in your life and business is another day where you get to feel a deep appreciation for you, for those you come in contact with, and for your own connection with spirit. When you feel like an empowered and sovereign being in your own world, goodness permeates your life and you manifest those things you desire with much greater ease.
When you work beyond any inner limits you may have imposed around your value or your pricing models as relates to your ideal client and the kind of work you do, you have a chance to re-evaluate your relationship with money and how it can flow into your business and into your life. That awareness alone can bring great change, and will inform all of your strategy going forward.
When you love your brand; when your brand genuinely feels like you; when you feel a beaming joy to share your message via your website... you take that expansion into the rest of your world, and into the work do and into the relationships you have with the people you serve. Everyone wins.
