“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 Life Purpose Expert + Brand Strategist.

For nearly a decade, his Sacred Branding® system has helped hundreds of celebrities, artists, entrepreneurs, influencers, and soul seekers to map their experiences and discover their subconscious motivations, unique brand, and life purpose.

People use this work for all kinds of things — from branding and building a business, to exploring identity and sexuality, to finding their artistic voice, to even re-discovering themselves after a life-altering event, like divorce or retirement. 

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 dozens of magazines, podcasts, and online publications, including a personal interview with NPR about his viral story on rethinking sexuality in his first same-sex relationship. 

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.
