Learn how to build and expand your brand and create the online look and feel that attracts the right clients. Brand stylist, Julie Harris shares her top tips.

I am Julie Harris, a brand stylist and digital designer specializing in small business branding and website design. I strive to redefine what it means to be an online business professional by collaborating with other entrepreneurs, small businesses, freelancers, and bloggers to create brands that not only look, but act, sound, think and feel just like them.

I believe that being a “small business” has nothing to do with size and all to do with the way in which you conduct your business. It’s more than just a business label, but a lifestyle choice to always create a personal customized, one of a kind, experience for the people you engage with. And there is absolutely nothing small about that.


My original professional dream was to be Ariel at Disneyland.


You are your brand.

Respect, honor, recognize what’s unique about your brand.

Recognize the little wins. @

Think Like A Journalist Quote

You have to understand your own personal DNA. Don’t do things because I do them or Steve Jobs or Mark Cuban tried it. You need to know your personal brand and stay true to it. Gary Vaynerchuk

Success Quote

You are your brand.
