'80's & a Whisper
Confession: It wasn't easy to find my voice & use the right words ...
I'm a lover of old movies & believe it or not, Dolly Parton inspired my dream business.
It wasn’t her songs 'Coat of Many Colors or Islands in the Stream' … but rather, her film debut with Lilly & Jane from back in the ’80’s – a simple comedy called Nine to Five.
Now, unlike her character, Dora-lee … I had no plan of duct-taping, my boss, to a chair to seek revenge but I was inspired ... to use my gift of storytelling for business & to DITCH MY 9 TO 5!
Throughout each scene, I not only marveled at Dolly's big hair & hefty shoulder pads but relived the moments of the struggle. Now, I choose not to bash corporate life for it taught me a great deal. But I am thankful to have left it behind. (Yup, that happened)
No more settling for approved vacation plans & a limited income.
I had enough.
I was ditchin’ 9 to 5 life FOR GOOD.
I have always done things differently ... perhaps that's why I didn't last in corporate life & dared to dream big. And, that out of the box thinking followed me into entrepreneurship too.
In the monotony of it all, I vividly remember, the idea of utilizing storytelling to elevate women.
At the time, I was not myself. I was shape-shifting to fit in. My voice was small. My marriage was in repair. I was on a quest to get my smile back ... a journey where things run deep ... a dark place you hear Gollum whisper "precious, oh my precious" as you feverishly attempt to find yourself.
Perhaps you've worked a 9 to 5 & also felt an overwhelming desire to be your own boss?
I bet you know how things spiral into a feeling freenzie while you attempt to balance a job with side hustle coaching ... focused on your personal lead-gen machine, while working hard to covert browsers into buyers as you offer up 'all the feels'.
My engagement I'll admit, was at an all time low. During meetings, I began to daydream.
And, I wasn't the only dreamer.
Others also had big dreams & a desire to set their story free. To speak up & to be heard.
I often envisioned flying out the second story window (blue butterfly style) to make my escape. Until one day, I sought freedom, 'fluttering across the parking lot to my getaway car', it hit me.
Just as simple storytelling can whisk you away; I envisioned women putting 'pen to paper' to use emotional branding (STORY) as a differentiator. A carefully crafted task to fill the value gap & captivate your ideal coaching clients one story at a time.
The struggle Dora-lee & I shared came to an end ... those meaningful moments led me to take action. And, you can too! I already knew it to be true; storytelling was not only an art or science but a highly valuable business skill. So, transformational in fact, I haven't heard Gollum's whisper since & my big smile is back!
I left corporate life to combine two things I love - business & storytelling - to craft captivating stories for you to share with your dream audience.
To date, I’ve brought stories to life with women CEO's, Executive to Mid-Level Employees, Entrepreneurs & others spanning across various industries.
Straight talk, strong women & blue butterflies. I believe that storytelling can be your #1 business tool. My job is to craft each word.
Shape-shifting, hepeating,fruity drinks, hate, nor cutting out family & friends to make room for business.
Cuddled up with a novel, on VIP calls with my fabulous clients, cooking & slow dancing with my gorgeous hubby.
Gratitude, cuddles with my fur baby, bear hugs with my kiddos & BFF's, peanut butter on toast, gym routine & great skincare (Primally Pure, what!)
And now, I work with you. I promise when the last word is written, you'll agree, your story is worth sharing!
