The divine in us recognizes the divine in you.

Why we exist


We started Brands Are Alive to help entrepreneurs create more fulfilling and purpose-driven lives and businesses.

We believe that each one of us is a unique expression of one universal consciousness. 

Therefore, we honor and cherish the unique and full self-expression that wants to come alive through you.


Our Values

What we live through our actions

Truth is subjective.

We encourage you to find yours, and have the courage to express it fully, freely, and unapologetically.

We look beyond ourselves to include the well-being of the collective, while we continue to work towards actualizing our own potential.

We favor wisdom over knowledge, and principles over rules.

We view business and life as a form of divine play, for the purpose of spiritual growth. 


Who we work with:



We seek to serve mindful, impact-driven, and heart-led high-achievers.


While we recognize the light in every being, we only work with creations that come from a place of love.


Because truly, nothing worthwhile has ever been created by someone who didn't give a sh*t.


Who we are:


We are conscious entrepreneurs, marketers, and creators, on a mission to elevate our collective well-being, one consciousness at a time.


We believe that great marketing happens when we sincerely and humbly lead the way by example, demonstrating our values through our own actions.

We believe that brands are alive when they live at the intersection of:

  • Passion
  • Purpose
  • Profit

Life is too short not to love what you do and who you do it with.

Hi, my name is Aleana.


I never set out to become an entrepreneur, marketer or business consultant. 


Definitely not to become a coach. :)


As a kid, I was actually more interested in art, philosophy, and mysticism.


But life happened, and I had to do what I had to do.

 

So in 2004, I started buying and selling stuff online.


I went on to build two more successful e-commerce businesses, before I started consulting other entrepreneurs.

During those years, I also joined a few early-stage startups as a contractor.

I’ve always had a knack for resourcefulness. I love developing creative strategies to grow a business that don’t involve just spending more money on ads. 

Some of these wins:

  • I was contracted by a European digital publisher (as their only marketer), to help break into the US market.

I accomplished my goal within 9 months and helped the startup break even shortly after.

One of those marketing campaigns was such a success that they continued to run it for 8 years after.

  • I joined a marketing agency as their second hire, along with one designer.

I owned all of their client side of the business except for design (marketing strategy, client management and communications, campaign execution, project management, and client success).

Within a little over a year, the agency went from under 6- to over 7-figures in yearly revenues.

In our first year alone, the agency’s clients earned over $75 million dollars in additional revenues.

  • I worked with more agencies, coaches/consultants, SaaS, digital media companies, and of course, many e-commerce entrepreneurs.

    Over the course of my career, my work has been directly responsible for over $100m in attributable additional revenues for my clients —without adding a penny to their existing marketing budgets.

For years, I defined myself through achievement.


On paper, everything was going great. I had a “successful” business and career. I was working with great clients, traveling the world, and living on my terms.

But in reality, nothing seemed to feel right.

I felt out of alignment, and my consistency suffered as a result. I struggled to stay excited about my business, and everything began to feel like a trap. Even work that I used to love.

I hit rock bottom when I accomplished everything I said I wanted, and I still wasn't feeling the fulfillment and satisfaction that I expected to get with having more “success”.


I felt trapped: Is it reasonable to let go of a perfectly fine business, just because it didn’t “feel” right?

Especially when I had no idea what else I wanted to do instead?


Was it reasonable? I don’t know. But it was definitely worth it. :)

My journey led me here. This is how brands are alive came to be.

I could finally make sense of my past experiences and "connect the dots". 

Suddenly all the twists and turns fit into a greater plan.

My aim is to help you do the same.

Whether you just want to shake things up a bit in your current business, or you want to start a new one altogether, know that there is something uniquely yours.

And that's where magic is made.
