Hey hey, I'm Makyna Elise!
Hey hey, I’m Makyna Elise. I’m a Minnesota girl with a heart of gold, who decided to trade cornfields and snowflakes for palm trees and sunshine. I mean why settle for cornfield when you can bask in the golden glow of California, am I right? During COVID-19, I packed my bags, bid farewell to the land of 10,000 lakes and set off on a nerve-wrecking adventure to Northern California.
When I’m not busy being an absolute boss babe, I’m out soaking up the sunshine, exploring this breathtaking state with my boyfriend, Austin. From chasing sunsets along the shoreline to hiking the foothills, we’re just trying to live life to the fullest. California has my heart and always will. Okay, but enough about my endless adventures (I could go on forever)!
Here’s how I got started…
At the ripe young age of 15 years old, my uncle let me tag along with him to a social media brand strategy workshop in Minneapolis, Minnesota where I fell in love with all things personal branding, content creation, and social media management. I begged my uncle to hire me so I could put to action all the things I learned while attending the workshop with him! It was a perfect way to test out my new found love and skills while also pocketing some spending money ($100 is a lot when you’re 15).
Throughout high school, I managed my own blog, taught myself how to build websites in Weebly, WordPress, and Wix, and even figured out how to transfer a domain from GoDaddy to it’s newly created website (thank goodness for Google). I would ask my mom to drive me to our local coffee shop where I meet family friends who needed help transforming or posting to their business pages. Thanks mom for supporting my 15 year old dreams.
Fast Forward to Present Day…
In one of the busiest seasons of my life. It is critical to me that I have the flexibility to make my own schedule and to pick up projects as my college schedule allows for it. With my passion for planning, creating, and managing, I am able to run my business anywhere. I know what it’s like to be a preoccupied business owner wonder where the heck to start.
Social media isn’t just for influencers and celebrities - it’s for everyone! Whether you’re a real estate agent, a life insurance pro, or just someone spreading good vibes, I want to help you stand out with personal branding unique to YOU, because YOU are your brand!
