Martine De Luna, n., A wife, mother, brand consultant for blogs, social media and writing.
FACTS ABOUT ME
I have thrived in my journey as a freelancer and small business owner, without a college degree. I've been working since I was 18, taking associates courses and vocation/trade-based certificates whenever I took on a job or landed a project.
I am passionate about creating a profession from my passion (and I show others how to, too). I hacked my way through life by creating jobs for myself, based on what needs I saw in people. I became known for Brand Coaching, Blog Coaching, Online Writing, Creative Workshops, Social Media Content Creation, and Working From Home, all of which I made into services and learning events that have built my brand, from zero.
I work from home, where I live with my husband and two kids, whom I unschool.
I'm a wellness mentor, and my new side-hustle is helping women break free from bad food & lifestyle habits, so that they can be healthy, happy and wealthy.
HI, I'M MARTINE DE LUNA. I've been working in the field of social media & content creation since 2010, as a blogger and, most recently as a consultant for small brands and other bloggers. After six years as a parenting and creative lifestyle blogger, I retired from blogging to focus on building my services as a Brand Coach. I love coaching people who are passionate about what they do — businesses or even blogs — and help them to craft their Brand Concept, Strategy and Messaging. I've been able to utilize my experience as a blogger to also help solopreneurs create their own services and offerings, and help small businesses speak to the heart of their potential clients, so that they serve the people they're meant to serve. Here's a rundown of how I've been around...
The Brand Coaching, for me, began serendipitously, when a now well-known blogger came to me asking to be coached for blogging. It began with her question, "Can you teach me everything you know?", and that sparked an idea for a side-hustle for me, while I was working from home as a website writer. Since 2012, I've done mild blog coaching, to full-on social media coaching and brand launching for bloggers and small local businesses, and a handful of international platforms.
