Tell a Story that Sells
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

How often do you get asked the question, "so what do you do?"
When asked this question, you have two options: 1) you can regurgitate the 'elevator pitch' version of what you do. You know the one - just the basics, the pitch you've been using for years or 2) you can tell a story that does your work justice and makes the listener want to know you, or better yet, help you or hire you. In this workshop-style session, we'll work together to re-craft and re-frame your professional story so that you are excited to tell it and others are excited to hear it. When you tell the right story, the right things happen.
