Crafting Your Five Word Life Story

A workshop for powerfully communicating who you are, & what you do

with Hillary Rea, founder of Tell Me A Story

“So, what do you do?”

This is the question that so many of us dread — whether you’re building professional connections, updating the About Me section of your website, or answering this question as part of a podcast interview.

Without an answer to this question that feels genuine, passionate, and powerful, it’s easy for “What do you do?” to spiral into the deeper existential crisis of “Who am I?”

What if there is a powerful way to answer this question and pitch yourself with confidence, strength, and joy? By telling your story, you will have stand out answers to status quo questions, plus you’ll inspire others, and create meaningful connections.

Join Tell Me A Story Founder, Hillary Rea as she guides you through a foundational brainstorming exercise that will help you to find the stories that you can use to share who you are beyond your job title.

In this one hour online workshop you will:

  • Learn how storytelling enables you to promote yourself and your work in a way that feels good because you are proud of it and confident in its ability to help others understand themselves in a whole new way.
  • Increase your comfort level in wanting to be seen for all parts of who you are — personally and professionally.
  • Gain clarity for what kind of stories do you want to tell and why
  • Trust how your creativity will support you in communicating naturally, effectively, and with impact.

By the end of this session, you’ll have a starting point for powerfully communicating who you are, what you do and what you stand for. You’ll leave motivated to answer status quo questions in a stand-out way, showcasing your expertise and shining a light on your personal and professional brilliance.

About Work in Progress

Entrepreneurship of any kind can be a really isolating experience when you aren't surrounded by other people doing their own thing.

That's why Indy Hall and Nicola Black Design teamed up and co-created Work in Progess, a community and program designed for solo business owners like yourself!

Our members have discovered that even while we're working on our own stuff, we can always find support in each other, push through challenges, and tackle the most difficult problems.
