The BEST-SELF, PERFECT-YOU photoshoot?
You’re a creative with a purpose, a visionary on a mission.
You’ll ditch the pseudo-luxus image, and the desire for it.
No need to book a high-stakes photoshoot ahead of time, complete with photographer, hair & makeup, secure the location, outline the shot list, nail all your outfits in advance…
Alternatively, you’ll gear up for your choice of playground for a couple of hours, at any day. Even on a whim.
What could that be for you?
Your Queen status won’t be gained by posing with a chateau in the background, but in ruling over your natural surroundings. You’ll drop the fake-facade environment, and instead, find the magic of what you actually have–and want to say.
You won’t have to brainstorm your concept, inquire your differentiator, unknowingly (oops!) copy the latest trends or rely on generic and overused templates.
What WILL happen?
You’ll get in touch with your origins and originality.
Your brand will emerge
and Celebrating the hell out of YOU.
The Self-Magic System is the pioneering art form where you express your creativity, reveal your uniqueness, liberate your identity and unblock your visibility.
The process is based on play over thinking. Emergence over execution.
This evolution won’t stop at your visual branding.
Your voice will be YOURS.
You’ll have ample confidence (and imagery) to introduce your ideas and spread your message.
The ripples of newly found belief, self-acceptance, self-love, authenticity and creative expression will stir up and affect everything: from brand essence to business pivoting, taking space and surprise, surprise–your sex drive and pleasure.
You’ll say YES to yourself as an evolving business-womxn, where both you and your business change, and mature. You’ll indulge in the moment and welcome the changes with curiosity, rather than holding on to an ideal, or for Goddess’ sake, your youth.
You’ll replace old beliefs and stories you live by. They’ll snap off like dry leaves, that their time has come.
Your flavor of perfection will be attainable, sustainable, creative and fun, but most of all?
Uniquely magical and unforgettable.
Impossible to copy (or for someone else to dictate it for you.)
You’ll find yourself taking charge of your image, upgrading your style, and coming up with your own definition of ambition, glam and success.
You’re your own inspiration – and home song.
This is the journey of BEING SEEN in your Magic.
And once you see yourself (and others see you,) you can’t unsee it.
This is the SELF-MAGIC Branding System
Authentic self-branding for personality-powered businesses.
A multidisciplinary experience for Self, Brand & Business Evolution.
Self-Magic Branding solves the inside AND out challenges of becoming an online business owner.
Visual expression of yourself is one of the fastest ways to find where your own blocks are. This framework guides you through the inner work of allowing yourself to be seen. To (playfully) find your uniqueness, take space, own your voice, and gaining visibility.
And as a result of this process, you’ll also be armed with tangible visual expressions: imagery unique to you, and only you, that fuel your online presence, make you memorable and inspire your actions.
You’ll create your most authentic, creative, confident and captivating personal brand.
The best part?
You discover your brand through the art of self-surprise.
This process is all about uncovering parts of yourself you never knew existed. You may had a hint of suspicion they were there, but they were never brought to life.
The Self-Magic System is a hybrid method, that along with timeless brand-building principles, combines:
Create scroll-stopping brand visuals that pop with personality and match your message – Even if you hate having photos taken!
Color Quest CODES
Your personal roadmap, one color at a time. Realize different aspects of your personality, purpose & worth.
Address the fears and complex nature and being seen. Find ways to show up easily, and become effectively magnetic.
Create your never-ending bank of visual brand assets.
Think selfies that don’t look like selfies. These images are all about the quality of your expression, not the intricacy of your posing.
In fact, Self-Magic womxn don’t have to pose at ALL.
Self-Magic Portraits is a thorough and expansive process I’ve been developing and refining for years, and you won’t find it anywhere else.
COLOR QUEST CODES
Work Your Color
Color here gets a new role and meaning, as a story framework, that goes way beyond the traditional symbolism.
The same with ColorFULL. It’s not about sticking all the rainbow colors together (although you sure can.)
Color play will no longer be limited to crafting the perfect color combo, or expressing yourself through your color choices (although this will happen.)
Color Work is about the depth of your connection with a color. You’ll develop a relationship with it, and awake unique to you imagery, words, feelings, memories, and unseen or forgotten aspirations.
Ready to play?
In our safe space, we bring up all the things that keep us hiding and have us stuck in identities we don’t feel most alive in.
Visibility is a very complex subject, and we all deal with it. No one is immune to visibility blocks.
The good news? There is a way to untangle this, and make it easy for you. Small, playful steps that lead to big breakthroughs.
When all these are working for you, oozing “This IS ME” becomes effortless.
Self-Magic Branding is a training, creative coaching & implementation experience, giving you results from day-1.
Color Cycle i
Reflect & reveal. Set the stage for your personal discovery and identity evolution.
We’ll deep dive into your personal image, stories & symbols. Also, into your creative process. You will get to see yourself (with new eyes) and allow to be seen. Reflection, in every sense, will take place. You’ll never have to wonder again how you’re unique or different.
You’ll establish your practice of Play. Bye-bye burnout. You’ll bring to life a new identity (or many) that will invite your people and forge your success. But that won’t be just in theory. You’ll also start a never-ending bank of visual content for your brand and social media. You’ll be both eye-catching and heart-warming!
Color Cycle ii
Develop your visual branding, content and culture along with your customers’ journey.
This is where we’ll start to put everything together. You’ll walk away with your Self-Magic Brand Playbook–the pilot’s manual to inform everything. Pass on to your copy & design team.
You’ll create a content vault, your social media strategy and outline your Show. You’ll strategically craft how to show more of you, and how to deeply connect with your audience. Your message will be clear and your voice loud (without shouting.) Your business will feel more alive and colorful than ever (even if your favorite color is Black,) and always updated and relevant to your latest growth.
Color Cycle iii
Create (and package) your signature work.
The above work (and play) has sparked a LOT of new things for you. You created a new identity and a new brand. What are you going to create next?

Who is this unique branding process for?
Self-Magic Branding is for coaches, experts, consultants and creative entrepreneurs who are called to create change and need to step in as the face of their business and personal revolution.
If one or two of the statements below describe you, you’re in the right space:
Your online presence IS A no-NO justice to what you have to offer.
You love cookies but not cookie cutters (and you know you’re leaving money on the table.) You’re a complex powerhouse and you need your visuals to match with your personality. To evolve with your energy and tell your story. An archetypes quiz that ends with a pretty template? won’t cut it. Someone talented else’s vision for you? won’t deliver either. And you definitely don’t want to pick up the look of your latest business crash (without even realizing.) You want You.
What you worked so hard for, isn’t working.
You don’t recognize yourself, anymore. You’ve spent your whole life getting to where you are now, but that doesn’t spell success any longer. You know you want something else, but you don’t know what it is yet, or where to find it. And you know you can be happier. Or richer. Or both. And every moment counts.
You’re an introvert who wants to expand your comfort zone.
Without feeling as if you’re pushed to jump off a plane! You want to discover your own captivating bling and client attraction factor, with your Self-Magic.
You need more joy, play & enthusiasm in your life.
The mess and the magic! And you want it ALL.
The Self-Magic Woman process
with Simone Grace Seol
Get You. Rewrite your identity and shape it from your core. Without the help of external expectations, social scripts, people pleasing habits or copycat trends.
Own more of who you are, and spread your updated message with no apologies or minimizing. And why not have a blast while at it?
Who am I, to bring you this?
and this work is the call I couldn’t refuse.
After hacking through 30 years of professional experience (geeee, where did time go??) I evolved several cycles, expanded my skills, and wear my superpowers on my sleeve.
Working in publishing with established licensed properties (Disney, Mattel, Warner Brothers, Nickelodeon, to name a few), taught me from the inside-out how top brands are structured, and turned me into a style-guide expert. This fueled me to create the Sakki-Sakki visual library showcasing my unmistakable style. This resulted in the creation and publication of The Sakki-Sakki Tarot, for the Artist in Each of us.
All my creative works inform and blend into each other, even if they see unrelated. They are all part of the same conversation and my dedicated creative thread.
My academic education–Masters in Visual Communications & Liberal Arts, is topped with massive amounts of contemporary marketing, branding, copywriting, productivity, funnels, video production and *all the things* for the online business landscape.
And of course on going (and ever going) soul work through somatic practices, energy tools and self-coaching modalities. Self-Magic is now one of them 🙂
But you aren’t getting the typical creative type here.
“Specializing in identity development” is a line I used since my first resume.
Why that, of all things? Because having to reinvent myself is the story of my life.
As a child, I grew up in between 3 continents. I had to introduce myself, find my place, adjust to different cultures and shape a new identity more times than I can remember. Now, as I got older, that chameleon ability (and practice) brings me something else: excitement, renewal and getting a few chapters ahead. And to keep playing with Legos.
My work around Self-Magic has been in the making for a lifetime.
In fact, one of the first seeds (I can recall,) was planted when I was in 5th grade. Other layers have been stacking up since…
So, expect it to be original, and not just a well researched medley of the latest trends.
What You Create, Creates You
And what’s that?
Don’t let me tell you. Keep reading my clients’ words.
A version of myself I didn’t even know it was possible
Every woman wants to feel as beautiful and as powerful as I feel in these photos. Monicka gives space to just really come as you are as well as envision what you can be. I feel I am connecting to myself in a whole new way, I feel I’m being a version of myself I didn’t even know it was possible.
Self-Magic Branding is a life changing and business changing experience that no one else is offering. Most of the coaching packages I purchased didn’t change my life, and didn’t change my business. Monicka’s style of work goes where no other coach goes.
This is the single most impactful investment in my business I’ve ever made.
It’s rare, it’s valuable, and people need to do it.
More clients and more profit than I’ve ever created before.
Monicka pissed me off a lot. She asked questions and took jabs that no one else dared to. Being an opinionated, stubborn, and proud creator, I somehow worked through my own drama enough to let her guide me through to the end. The result?
What’s obvious to the outside is fresh, bold and unforgettably ‘me’ visual branding, with photos that created throngs of admirers wondering who the heck my photographer was (just me and my iPhone). What they don’t know is that Monicka’s mentorship changed the way I show up to my business from the inside out.
I broke my own shell open, organized my shit, grew up, and dared the world to love me through both my most confident, genius edge and trembling vulnerability. Of course, that translated to more clients and more profit than I’ve ever created before. Monicka was a hard and weird teacher to have, and my big lucky break in 2019.
Monicka really helps to bring YOU into what you do.
Use your personal creativity to create your business identity. She taught me how to think about my own creativity in ways I’d never considered, and it helped me break out of my cozy little, introvert shell. This work also helped me shape a great narrative story for my business AND produce images to match that story.
The self portraits I have now are way better and more expressive than anything I’ve had before. It’s ok for me to stand out and put myself out there, whether it’s like being intelligent or funny, or sexy or creative. Plus, I have the skills now to keep producing new images, experimenting, and playing to grow as my business grows.
Monicka is super supportive and very skilled in pulling out the bigger themes and ideas in your business. And she’s so joyful and fun. Breaking out of your shell can be scary, but she creates a safe space to experiment and play. The way she organizes her images for social media posts is brilliant. It helped me stay focused by theme and business goal. For someone who’s easily overwhelmed by all the moving parts, it’s been a great way to approach content creation and organization.
