Oh, gawd. The dreaded bio. Does anyone actually like writing these things?!
Well, actually, I do. But definitely not about myself. I much prefer helping other ladybosses nail down who they are + what they do with the clarity and confidence of Beyoncé.
(But if I must:)
I’m Elle Darcy — a strategic brand coach + photographer put on this planet to help others build powerful personal brands that ignite impact and streamline success. I live in gorgeous Portland, ME with my daughter Lux Clementine who really is the best. kid. ever. and our super cute animals (clearly not biased). I’ve worn a lot of hats in my 30-something years of life: yoga teacher, social worker, marketing director, mama bear, and small business owner. Yet it was just three short years ago that I realized that helping entrepreneurs get theirs was really the only thing I’m here for. And it’s been non-stop-good-shit ever since. The truth is, nothing makes me happier than helping my clients build fierce brands from the inside out and popping champagne with them as they achieve wild success in both business and life.
OK, fineeee. Here are some fun facts:
