“We can all learn something from Mike Iamele’s honest and authentic thoughts on redefining relationships and success.” — Jason Wachob, founder and CEO of MindBodyGreen

Mike Iamele is a Purpose + Brand Strategist.

For nearly a decade, he’s helped people to identify their essence + brand for more purpose, confidence, business, and mind-blowing sex –– through a process called Sacred Branding®.

In 2014, Mike accidentally came out to millions when he wrote an article about falling in love with a man after identifying as straight––and 100,000 people shared it overnight. 

Mike’s also the author of Enough Already: Create Success on Your Own Terms (Conari Press 2015). He’s shared his provocative and vulnerable take on life in hundreds of magazines and podcasts, including NPR, CBS, and Huffington Post.

Prior to Sacred Branding®, at only 22 years old, Mike co-founded Torch Communications, a boutique public relations firm, specializing in healthcare and disruptive technology. He currently lives in Somerville, MA, with his husband and two adorable dogs.

Some Past Interview Topics:

 
    • What it’s like to accidentally come out to millions of people in a viral article.
    • The way we talk about purpose is wrong and creates shame. You don’t have to achieve or find anything. You just have to map your sensitivities + experiences. And we can do that by the end of this interview.
    • Sacred Branding®: the simple approach to branding based on your sensitivities that’s behind hundreds of entrepreneurs’, influencers’, and artists’ businesses
    • My life-changing illness + falling in love with my male caretaker (when I identified as straight) + sexual fluidity.
    • The hilarious, nerve-wracking, heart-warming story of how I got engaged on the most disastrous day of my life.
    • Reconceptualizing the masculinity conversation. Discovering your brand of masculinity (and femininity)––or just your brand of self.
