Meet Fabian

Your coach

I am Fabian Geyrhalter, a brand strategist, mentor, author, educator, and speaker. After successfully running a brand agency for 12 years working with large and small organizations alike I decided to focus on my passion for helping businesses get off the ground the right way. I wrote two bestselling books on my theory and process and led over 100 private workshops around the world crafting the brand foundation for startups and new offerings of existing organizations. I have seen such amazing results of distilling this brand strategy work, that would usually cost tens of thousands of dollars and take months with a traditional agency, into a one day intensive that I currently charge my clients $10,000 for. Still, not every entrepreneur can afford the price tag or can meet with me in person. For those, I have created this online intensive at a fraction of the cost. I am thrilled to start working with you to get your brand off the ground the best way possible. Let's get started!

At the end of this course, you will have your brand defined on a few organized and powerful pages, ready to be shared with your team. It will define everything from your positioning, company culture to sales and marketing. You likely have a business plan, but that does not answer these crucial questions. The brand platform represents the soul and voice of your company, for once humanized and solidified. It will be your, your team's and collaborators' brand bible and it will be referenced on a daily basis.

2 books Included with your course

Both books will assist you along the journey to create the best version of your brand.

FAQs

  • Are there any prerequisites to taking the course?

    There are no prerequisites from you since you already have your business idea and that's all you need at this stage. It may be in the form of a full-fledged business plan or simply an idea with bullet points sketched out on a napkin. As long as you feel really strong about your idea and dedicated to building that business, you can jump right into the course as it will help lay down foundational elements while digging deep into the 'why' and the 'how' of your soon-to-be brand.

  • How long does the course take?

    The course is completely at your pace. You are able to finish it in less than a day, but you may take a week or longer. It is completely up to your circumstances.

  • How do I know that I am creating a strong brand foundation working on this solo?

    Despite the guidance and process I provide you with through the video classes, you also have the opportunity to pause and schedule a call with me half-way through the course where I ensure your work has been done in the most impactful and differentiating way possible. At the very end of the course we can hop on another call to review the entire brand document you created and we will fine-tune it together before you start to share and implement the strategy.

  • Can we do the course as a team (or even with my client)?

    Yes, you can. You are the sole owner of your log-in credentials, but you can hover around a screen and go through it as a team. Past participants have used shared screen video calls and used a Google document to brainstorm before the leader of the team used the course PDF to insert the fine-tuned consensus of the team. I highly recommend doing it together with your Co-founder or teammates, but I would refrain from larger groups. 2-6 is usually a good number of collaborators to make this course a success.

  • How will I receive my brand platform document?

    You will be provided with an interactive PDF workbook. Your brand platform synopsis will be generated automatically with your key thoughts as you work your way through the course, so after the final exercise you will have the most crucial brand points on a single page, ready to be shared with your team and collaborators.

  • What if I enjoy the online course, but change my mind and feel that I would be much more successful doing it 1-on-1 with Fabian instead?

    If at any point you get cold feet and need more guidance from myself than the two calls, no worries. You and I can discuss over one of your free calls and we can schedule a private in-person workshop session and I discount the eResonaid cost ($1,950) towards the in-person workshop ($10,000 in Greater Los Angeles, $11,000 anywhere else or over weekends and holidays).

  • I am running an incubator (or accelerator) or am teaching an entrepreneurship or brand course at an educational institution. Can I get a discount using your course in this setting?

    For organizations that enroll a batch of 10 or more students at a time I grant a 70% group discount ($598.5 per enrolled student, per course, no private check-in calls with me included). Reach out to me directly via fgeyrhalter@finien.com to discuss your situation and to generate the discount codes. If you enroll more than 10 students, I am also happy to come to your organization for a Q&A, a lunch & learn or a speech to create added value (travel expenses excluded).
