Hi, I’m Hanna Fitz, an international brand strategist and business coaching, helping women create their signature brand around their expertise and a life styled for freedom.
For the last 7 years, I have had the opportunity to work side by side with successful small business owners all over the world and this has motivated me to help other women create the business and life that they desire.
EVERY WOMAN HAS THE POWER TO DELIBERATELY CREATE A LUSTROUS LIFE.
WHAT I LIKE TO CALL “THE CULTURED LIFE”.
My skills and experience lies in being able to help you transform your unique, powerful personal story and vast knowledge into packaged, high-end signature products and services.
I help you tap into your hidden potential, to create your signature niche offer with greater precision in a shorter amount of time. This is my natural gift backed up by years of practical experience with renowned brands.
But I wasn’t always there…
When turned 28, I realized that I was not living the life I always imagined. I was sitting in a cubicle for almost 4 years with a very good job as the product development and management specialist for a major financial group.
Something was missing…
Somewhere along the way I lose touch with dreams. My mother had died 10 years earlier and my father was now in his final months. I started to really appreciate the value of time and living your dreams now.
I WENT FROM WORKING 8-5 IN A SMALL CUBICLE
TO THE WOMAN WHO WAS FINALLY LIVING HER ENTREPRENEURIAL DREAM.
YOUR NEW LIFE, FILLED WITH ADVENTURE
AND PURPOSE, IS CALLING.
I decided to study law, I was now conforming. Through social conditioning I associated being a lawyer to being a success. But into my masters degree, I knew a profession as a lawyer was not who I was meant to be. Though I completed my masters with no regrets…
There was more calling me! More creative expression than law would allow!
Frustrated with where I was in my life, I was searching for answers. One day while re-organizing my closet, I came across an article where I was interviewed after topping my graduating class from my bachelors degree in Corporate Management.
I said to the journalist “I want to be a business consultant and run my own business”.
Tears rolled down my eyes. I knew I had to do it. This desire was still in me. It was time to take decisive action.
I have always known that my gift is working with entrepreneurs to create strategies and help them achieve their goals. Even as a teenager, I became aware that when I spoke to entrepreneurs who had been in business more years than my own age, they listened.
Really listened, implemented my ideas and got results. At first I questioned it, thinking… I’m just a girl! I realized that like you “we’re not just” anything!
YOU HAVE A DIVINE MISSION.
IT’S TIME TO CONQUER FEAR AND OWN IT.
The month I wrote my resignation, but fear took a hold of me. What if I couldn’t pay my mortgage and car loan? So many what ifs! What if I fail, what if I can’t make it, what if this dream never comes true? Can it come true?
I left it on my laptop for a few more weeks… Then, I decided to leap. My desire to pursue my dream was stronger than the fear of trying.
I am a very determined person who does not let no or “that’s impossible” stop me. When I entered my degree program, I was told no one gets first class honors, it hadn’t happened for 14 years. I was the only one in that graduating year to achieve it.
I decided to take a chance on myself and invested my entire retirement savings to start my business. In that moment I knew, if I didn’t take a chance on me and invest in myself, who would? Since, then I have never looked back.
I KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE SCARED AND UNCERTAIN,
BUT I ALSO KNOW HOW GOOD LIFE CAN GET WHEN YOU DECIDE TO LEAP.
I’ve used the services high level coaches, trainers and mentors to level up my game. I got out the “I can’t afford it mindset” and into “I can’t afford not to” and invested in the training and tools I needed.
My boutique marketing firm has worked with some of the world’s top luxury and international brands including Conde Naste Award winning resorts, fashion retailers and service based businesses.
I financed my move to Milan, Italy in 2012 without a single friend or family there (really… In winter!), living within walking distance from the famous Duomo in Centro Storico.
I made a ton of business contacts and had the opportunity to negotiate international contracts and business opportunities on behalf of my clients with major brands like Harrods in London and Silversea Cruises (Monaco).
I created my own luxury lifestyle magazine and interviewed global thought leaders in the luxury industry, including wonderful networking trips to in Monaco and the rest of Europe. Paid off all my loans, so I could finally be debt-free!
While waiting for my Italian visa renewal in Saint Lucia, I met the love of my life and decided, I am a woman who wants and knows she can have both: LOVE AND MY DREAM BUSINESS.
For the first time, I stepped out of the either/or mindset.
DROP THE SELF-SACRIFICE.
ARE YOU READY LEAP INTO YOUR DREAMS?
More than a brand strategist, I have a deep curiosity of how our mind works. And how our thoughts influence the outcomes in our life.
This is why I combine iconic branding strategies with powerful mindset techniques, to help you transform your business and your life. No more either/or!
BUSINESS IS A MIND GAME,
MASTERING THE MIND IS A KEY TO MASTERING THE GAME.
While branding can tend to be over-simplified, I like to dive deep into your Brand DNA, helping you create a clear action plan, to build your dream business.
My diverse background and studies in luxury brand management, has given me the ability to view business from a multidimensional perspective.
I speak three languages, English (obviously), French (the first language I spoke as a child) and Italian.
I was born in the Saint Lucia, raised in Martinique and spent most of my childhood summers in Maryland.
I’m a foodie who actually loves cooking. I really enjoy sailing. Two years ago, I took part in my very first regatta and… my team won its class! Never mind my not so glamorous role of being ‘weight on”!
If I could take up residence inside an Italian pasticceria or Austrian bakery, I would (a lover cakes and pastries)!
I am truly blessed to have a business that allows me the flexibility to travel and live my passion. I can’t say I’m one nationality, because so many cultures have shaped and influenced who I am.
SO I LIKE TO SAY, I AM A WOMAN OF THE WORLD ON A MISSION TO HELP AMBITIOUS WOMEN LIKE YOU, UNCOVER YOUR UNIQUE AND POWERFUL BRAND OF MAGIC!
