Firestarter advises individuals (entrepreneurs, athletes, celebrities and civic leaders) and small businesses/start-ups-helping them develop, manage, enhance, and protect a key professional asset: their personal brands.

We provide tailored consulting and training to help clients position themselves in the marketplace, engage stakeholders, and motivate customers and other constituencies who could have short- or long-term impact on their positioning and reputation.

Firestarter takes a consultative and training approach, providing insights, strategies and guidance on how to better articulate and bolster their image.

Whether the client relationship lasts for a few initial training sessions or consultations or extends over the long-term to provide ongoing counsel, Firestarter can serve as an important partner in improving and maintaining the integrity of how individuals and companies are perceived and valued.


Strategy isn't a service; it's an approach that underlies everything we do. We help our clients make smart, strategic decisions and collaborate with them to create metrics of success.

Building and/or growing a personal brand is not one-size fits all, so Firestarter has multiple options to help clients create, enhance, and/or protect this most valuable asset.
