The story you are not telling…

It’s Effective Communications Month and I’m just wondering about the story you are not telling. You know what I’m talking about. You have a longing to open up about a situation or a cause that is close to your heart, yet you hesitate. Do you feel that you are at the end of your rope trying to figure out sharing your story? I understand and know exactly how you feel because I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to wonder if I’ll be judged because I decide that the time has come for me to take a stand and speak up. I know that vulnerable feeling of waiting for the repercussions after my story is told and out there for the world to accept, digest, reject and dissect.

It’s scary to put yourself out there. But you don’t have to do it alone. I know I’m not really doing it alone.  

I have been honing my skills for years; sharing my stories and supporting my clients in sharing their stories. I have the support of my own inner wisdom along with the expert guidance of coaches, colleagues and, of course, my clients, who are my greatest teachers. 

Isn’t it about time to share the story you are not telling?

If you are ready to start sharing your message and have been thinking it’s time to have a website, want more information about starting a blog, or you are an author and wonder how to go about having a website focused on the business of books, I’d like you to grab your seat for two upcoming classes:
