About Talyn Rahman-Figueroa

Imagine living in places where competition is as intense as fire. You could be the best in your field with all the degrees and accolades, but someone with a sharper presence could snatch the spotlight right from under your nose. That was my reality from Kyoto to London. For the longest time, I felt like I was swimming in a sea with sharks, each chasing for the same opportunities. And it was mentally and emotionally exhausting – to never feel like you were enough and always being compared to someone else, even as a child. But as I evolved into a business owner, I discovered the power of personal branding which helped me narrow down my focus to working with diplomats and politicians (yep – that was my niche audience).

Suddenly, competition felt like a distant echo because no-one else was working with this audience and no-one else in my field was anything like me. I became an expert in my niche in diplomacy, and the doors swung open for me to take over. No more being compared to someone else because… quite frankly, I became the only option. 

As a trained diplomat, I’ve navigated the world with people with big titles, big status, and big money. I remember meeting the Ambassador of Colombia, feeling so intimidated by his presence, and I only got one chance to understand him, analyze him, and help them connect to his target audience. At the end of the 60-minutes, we were both smiling because I managed to get him to open up to me. I was on his side and he knew it! Working with this audience was a delicate dance, and I became a pro at it.

Now, I’m taking my skills directly to solo entrepreneurs – the lifeblood of our society who need expert help in repositioning their ideas and personal stories into their business brands.

As your Personal Brand Consultant, I will help you become the face of your business and turn you into your very own brand ambassador so that your business becomes a premium brand. I’m Talyn Rahman-Figueroa, your “Fairy BOSSmother” and business wingwoman and I’m here to make you the ONLY choice in your industry.

Let’s make you so good, you can’t be ignored! 

About Boss Diplomat

Led by the charismatic Talyn Rahman-Figueroa, Boss Diplomat is a brand consultancy that specializes in turning solopreneurs into premium brands in their industry. Our mission is to craft personal brands that are so powerful, they can’t be ignored! We do this by uncovering the real story behind the business owner, and weave threads of their backstory into the foundations of their overall business brand. 

As a diplomat-turned-brand expert, Talyn is a great example of how powerful a personal brand can be. Boss Diplomat is the natural evolution of all the work Talyn did in diplomacy through her first company, Grassroot Diplomat. As a diplomat consultant, Talyn trained citizens to become diplomats, and worked with public figures in upgrading their personal brands. Turning people into Ambassadors is what she does. Now we turn BOSSES into Brand Ambassadors because we believe every solopreneur can become the brand icon in their industry.

Talyn now works with solopreneurs who are service providers, product developers, and content creators. As an entrepreneur who has done all three in the past, Talyn has a rich cultural history in working with people from different countries, backgrounds, and social needs, and has lived in 4 continents. And now you can understand why your brand consultant is the one and only BOSS DIPLOMAT!
