Today we’d like to introduce you to Carrie Thomas-Omáur.
Hi Carrie, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
My start truly started when I was six years old. That’s where my passion and mission come from…
When I was six years old, I discovered I was adopted.
My brother, like most brothers, told me, “that’s why your not my real sister anyway.”
I remember that moment so vividly because my cousins looked at him and looked at me, and they had that look of you were not supposed to say that.
So being the little kid, I ran down to my parents, letting them know what my brother said. (it’s important to note that my parents are old school and had an old roll-top desk where they placed their essential documents.)
They walked over to that roll-top desk and told me I was “Adopted.”
Those words were the break of trust and the shift, in reality, I had for myself.
That moment was when I felt like I needed to earn my spot in my family and my place in life.
That was the moment that I indeed became a performer.
I started living my life based on other people’s happiness (I was a pure people pleaser)
And I spend a lot of my life that way, but about five years ago, I had my breaking point.
I turned around and realized I hated my life, and I didn’t even know what I truly liked because I had conformed to my life with other people.
I had this internal discord between the person I knew who I wanted to be and the person I “thought” I “should” be. I keep experiencing these self-sabotage cycles, so I did something I had never done.
I asked for help.
With the help of my circle, I truly stepped into my purpose and passion.
And I inevitably created a business for people to shine their light and step in their power regardless of social standards and society boxes or norms.
Now, I share this message and the magic that happens when you live your life authentically and understand your raving fans’ hearts.
How did I start doing what I do? It’s my dad’s fault.
I was a corporate girl. (I worked for the biggest franchise in the world “Subway”) I had a good life and an amazing schedule, but I knew I wanted to do more. I thought I would stay in my lane and work with restaurants helping them increase their visibility and profits.
But my dad died in March 2019, and everything changed.
My dad was in the military for 26 years. He was someone you could talk to, and things just made sense, and if you’re overwhelmed, go away.
So, I wasn’t surprised that at his funeral, everyone would have a story about how he changed the trajectory of their lives.
That funeral is where my spark caught fire because I knew at that moment that I wanted to work with visionary entrepreneurs with amazing missions. Still, they play small (like my dad) and stay in their corners even though they know they have been called and that they do can genuinely make ripples in the world.
So that is when I lead me down this path.
To help visionary entrepreneurs build brands that genuinely align and represent them unapologetically and naturally attract their ideal clients to them.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I think anything worth it is supposed to be supposed. The road to success is a non-linear journey. It is all about learning from your failures and using them as amazing lessons that will prepare you to follow levels of life and business.
My biggest struggle was my internal struggle of trusting and believing in myself and that my mission is more important than my fears.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
Carrie Thomas-Omàur Consulting (Solasta Digital) is a branding and marketing firm specializing in developing and launching brands that disrupt traditional social norms.
I believe it’s essential to establish a Brand that evokes emotions and activates your raving fans…
Passion, Strategy, and Psychology are at the core of everything we do in business.
Our goal is to empower our clients to create genuine relationships with their clients by understanding them as humans and leveraging innate human needs and desires.
What sets us apart is that we genuinely believe the key to building a successful business and brand is knowing who you are and doubling down on you. We leverage brand archetypes (innate motivators that push humans into action.) to help our clients cultivate their uniqueness and build a business and brand that truly represents them.
What lights me and what makes me the happiest is when one of my clients truly steps out of the shadows and steps into their brightest lights and gets loud about their mission while staying true to them.
How do we work with people? We have a couple of ways to work with people…
I have a digital commerce shop called Sol Shop, where people can my branding assets based on personality traits and triggers to help them step out with a brand that is aligned with them and is not just pretty.
I have a Facebook community Premium Brand Architects, with visionary entrepreneurs building branding and increasing their visibility by doubling down on themselves.
My core offer is our coaching program: Brand Soul Academy: A 12 Week of Immersive Branding and Business Experience, to help you build a brand that aligns with your vision and attracts your ideal clients.
I do 1:1 Brand development work but space is extremely limited.
What do you like and dislike about the city?
I just moved to Denver in March, and want I love about Denver is there is an energy and vibe when you walk through the streets. It feels right.
I am not an outdoor person so Denver is all about it. So I am stepping outside of my comfort zone and getting out there and has been fun!!
