A workshop for powerfully communicating who you are, & what you do
with Hillary Rea, founder of Tell Me A Story
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.
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.

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