Oh how I love a great story!
If you are familiar with me and my work, you already know how much stock I put in stories. I believe that it is our story that creates the foundation for our business, whether we want it to or not.
The stories we acquired as children, as well as the ones we tell ourselves as adults, have tremendous power: They can prevent us from taking action, keep us stuck in a self-imposed pattern, or cause us to see ourselves in a way that isn’t supportive of where we want to go. They can also give us the determination to keep moving forward, reassure us when we feel low, and point the way toward more joy.
This is why all of my new branding clients go through a process of self-discovery on the way to naming a business and/ or developing a visual and written identity for it.
The 90-minute recording opens a window into how Julie transformed a great loss in her personal life into an opportunity that has benefited her in unexpected and far-reaching ways, both personally and professionally.
Julie also shares how other aspects of the story of her life—for example, the things she’s been passionate about since a little girl and the values that she upholds—have become naturally infused into her strategies for growing her business and fulfilling her unique role in the community.
Julie’s an inspiration to many and you’ll find that this interview is not only motivational, but also offers plenty of tangible business launch and growth advice.
Take the time to listen. You won’t regret it!
