Business Branding Coach - Chanelle Segerius Bruce


My clients often work with me as a coach when they have this nagging feeling that something has to change!

Are You…

  • Confused about which direction to go in next?
  • Looking to take the leap into entrepreneurship?
  • Unsure about all the social media platforms out there?
  • Looking to up-level your brand?

One-on-one coaching days allow you to define YOUR successful life and business.
Get clear on what you want to do next, how to market for clients and how you can create a Jaw-Dropping Brand that attracts them.

I’ve worked with people from corporate to photographers, coaches, wedding planners, filmmakers and bloggers. What’s incredible about individual coaching is that it’s organically tailored to what you need in your business right now.

Join me for a Luxury Coaching Intensive at The Oyster Box Hotel in Umhlanga, South Africa

Take some time away from your everyday life and your business. This is the time to stop working in your business and start working on your business!

One-on-one coaching intensives 2016.

Full day at The Oyster Box with Chanelle  $2500 includes all refreshments throughout the day and a 2-course meal at the restaurant for a working lunch. Private venue hire: The Shell Room. 

Ready To Focus On You and Your Business?


After The Oyster Box Intensive we now have great new ideas that will help us to grow our business, and to market it more successfully.

Our business was not being seen by enough clients, and we needed hands-on advice from a specialist who understands our industry, our business and the challenges that we are facing to get the business to the next level. Our business/private life division was getting blurred, and we needed help to separate these areas.

Chanelle helped us to systematically work our way through all the aspects of our business that need help. She provided practical advice and ideas on ‘how to’ improve each of these areas.

These included direct and indirect marketing, client consolidation as well as finding new clients, and several new ideas to add on to our current business model. She helped us effectively allocate and utilise our time for work and our private lives. We’re excited about the next phase of our photography training business, now that we’re clear about which direction to go in and what steps to take next.

Chanelle has a great way of getting into your business head straight away and is very personable and easy to get along with. She has given us new confidence to make our dream business a successful reality.

Within 12 weeks I’d booked 4 new coaching clients all on 90-Day Packages and brought in $10 000 to this new branch of my business!

I’d been looking to introduce coaching for the last 6 months, but with a full-time blogging business, I lacked clarity and accountability to make it happen. First we increased the rates of my blogging advertising and upped the minimum contract which increased my existing income.

My 90-day coaching programme with Chanelle has been transformative! I needed a business coach to help push me to officially launch my new business with a clear direction. I’ve gone from an idea, to creating a high-level brand and developing and launching my new coaching website, all within 12 weeks.

Even before the new brand and website launched I was securing new vibrant coaching clients, who were attracted to my unique form of coaching.

I recommend working with Chanelle because her experience of creating high-level kick ass brands, mixed with focused accountability is dynamite in launching new projects. “

My new business launched within 2 weeks of our coaching intensive in South Africa!

Chanelle helped me craft a story around my marketing and find ways to connect with my clients on a personal level so that they would jump at the chance to work with me.  I learned how to find my clients and how to market to them in a personal way and came away buzzing with ideas and with a marketing plan in place.

She helped me get clear on how to package my offering and what price point it should be. How to market my new service online by creating sales and opt-in pages and how to attract my ideal clients through videos and creating a very personal brand.

I’m now doing brand and business visioning for creative entrepreneurs.

I recommend working with Chanelle because she knows her stuff, explains things very well and is very passionate when it comes to business and marketing. Chanelle vibrates at a high energy which is very contagious!”

Do you want more from your life & business?



I see so many women not even allowing themselves to try. You rationalise with reasons such as:

  • It’s already been done before
  • I need one more qualification before I can start
  • I’m  not comfortable sharing myself online
  • If I put my price up nobody will book me
  • I can manage on my own
  • The market is so saturated already with *insert your field here*
  • I can’t allow myself to hire team members for extra support

These are blocks or limiting beliefs that you put ahead of pursuing your new passions. It makes it logically ok in your mind that you haven’t yet gone for it. A form of validation if you will. It’s also self-sabotage.

Think about that for a while.

Are you ready to move past these thoughts and go for it in a big way?

Within 3-months, I’d completely changed career paths from PA to landing my dream job as a full-time photographer at one of the top studios in London! 

Before I started coaching with Chanelle, I was working in an office as a PA, shooting on the weekends and felt totally burned out. I worked with Chanelle in her 90-Day program.

I had a big dream to be a full-time photographer but I was scared, confused and exhausted. I didn’t know where to start and I felt lost.

Chanelle helped me gain self-confidence and I resigned from my full-time job – the best part was my boss offered me 2 months full pay and I could stop working right away! I had the time to shoot for my portfolio, work on my personal brand and I used this to apply for a job at an amazing portrait studio.

I highly recommend working with Chanelle. She is a very inspirational woman and artist; she has a very positive energy, and she definitely has a gift for teaching!

I’d like to add… THANK GOD I FOUND YOU!

So many awarenesses came to me and I was blown away! We were able to clear blocks that I had and come to a place of real clarity during a one-day intensive.

I thought I had it all worked out regarding my work and personal life. I’m an engineer and started my business in the middle 80’s with many lessons over the years, failing and succeeding learning and growing from all the challenges.

With 30 odd years of owning my own business under my belt, I must admit my initial thoughts were “Ok; let’s see what Chanelle could teach me”…

From my experience, Chanelle’s coaching methods transformed my thinking process. The moment I began to talk about my current business, out came her white board, and she began writing and putting all my thoughts in black & white.

Thank you for sharing your time and dynamic personality with me Chanelle.

Chanelle Segerius-Bruce


I’ve designed a life & business where I can WORK FROM ANYWHERE and be there EVERY AFTERNOON WITH MY LITTLE GIRL. I desire to help other business owners to have more TIME FREEDOM for self-care, doing things they enjoy and spending time with their family.

By 2013 I was on paid commissions to shoot editorial by Wedding Magazine and You & Your Wedding. I worked closely with Peta Hunt who is chief stylist and editor-at-large at You & Your Wedding Magazine

I run and own a SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING COMPANY with 2 full-time employees.  My clients have included a luxury villa developer in The Caribbean, Wedding Industry Professionals, The Chocolate Festival in London, Photography Studios and a Health Coach. My clients are worldwide in countries including The UK, America, The Caribbean and South Africa.

I have a background in graphic design and high-end retouching working for the likes of MARIO TESTINO in London. Being emerced in the fashion industry as well as working for Top 10 Ad agencies around London’s given me years of insight into luxury branding.

My photography work was published internationally 74 times with over 250 pages of magazine tear sheets.

I flew around the world with my husband for eight years, to cover high-end wedding events in Bali, Mauritius, Morocco, Santorini, Prague, Cyprus, The Caribbean, South Africa and more!


I achieved this despite:

  • People saying an artworker can never transition to being a high-end retoucher
  • It being “known” that a wedding photographer will never get PAID to shoot bridal fashion
  • Not paying for any advertising or PR for my wedding photography business, I did it all myself

I recently turned 35 and I know that everything I’ve achieved so far is there for you too if you have the focus and drive to make it happen! I didn’t come from money and nothing was handed to me on a plate…

  • I moved from Durban to London when I was 18 with nothing more than a backpack
  • Over the years I changed career paths from Artworker to Retoucher to Photographer to Social Media Manager
  • I moved to The Caribbean and joined a photography studio in The Turks & Caicos Islands
  • Had a baby!! Yeah, that was a big one!
  • Launched a new business whilst moving continents  with a 15-month-old and returned “home” to live in South Africa
  • I only work from 8 am to 2 pm and have every weekend off. My husband’s able to pursue his passion of surf photography and doesn’t have to take on a 9 to 5 job either!

I didn’t have a child for somebody else to bring up. Both of us being able to spend us much time as we do with her is something I’m grateful for on a daily basis!

Business Branding Coach - Chanelle Segerius Bruce

We all start somewhere, but you can quickly move up the ladder and charge higher prices, and it doesn’t have to take forever!

I started shooting weddings at £750 and increased that to £1600, then up to £2250 starting price with album sales on top of that. When we left the UK in 2013, I was invoicing £5000 to £6000 per wedding.

In my freelance retouching work, I started off doing it for experience, moved up to £30 per hour and continued to do freelance work from home when I lived in The Caribbean charging £80 per hour to a high-end London-based client.

When I started my social media marketing business, in Jan 2015, my monthly fee was $350, it went up to $500 and now my clients are on $750 per month with a minimum 6-month contract.

At the photography studio in The Caribbean, I photographed family portraits and weddings and brought in a total of $250 000 in one year! This is while I was pregnant and then had a young baby too.

I was being asked the inevitable question “When are you coming back to work full time?” The truth is I never want to work full time again.

When I looked at the numbers and worked out that the nanny who was looking after my baby was taking home more than me, I knew I had to have my own business again!

It was scary to leave that paradise island, move country and start a brand new business. But it’s absolutely worthwhile!
