Every once in a while, a unicorn falls out of the sky and lands in your lap.
That's how I feel about Deb Cummins Stellato.
A little over a year ago, I received a private message on Facebook from Deb. We weren't connected. We weren't friends. She wasn't a member of the LIGHTbeamers Community. And we didn't have any friends in common.
Yet, she was reaching out to me saying someone had referred her to me. She needed a Storytelling Coach, and could she please book a call with me?
When we got on our first call, within about 2-seconds, I felt like I was talking to my long-lost sister.
There was immediate synergy and connection between us, and needless to say, Deb became one of my private 1:1 clients and we immediately got to work working on her story (that would eventually be shared heavily on her Podcast, another project we built together).
Deb has embraced storytelling like the A+ student she is, and she's approached all of her work as a Certified Life...
When I first met Kimberly Smith, she had landed in my Community during a storytelling challenge I was leading called Storyweek.
I fell in love with her from the start because I could sense there was much more to her than originally met the eye. In the challenge, she was dipping her toe in the water of "getting visible" with her story.
Turns out, it was the beginning of Kimberly going 'all in' and writing her memoir.
Kimberly later came back to me, with her book in hand and when I began reading it.... I was blown away. This was not the same Kimberly that showed up for our challenge!!
This was a raw, vulnerable, totally exposed Kimberly who was sharing her story so openly it took my breath away!
Her new book, Beautifully Broken, is a gorgeous account of how she was rescued from a life of abuse, brokenness, and heartache when she met her friend Jesus on the journey of recovery.
This isn't a bible-beating type of story. This is a one woman's open...
I'm excited to share I'm producing a brand Podcast called The Inside Story. Each week, I'm sharing the inside story behind some of the biggest success stories and the grit & determination of overcoming some of their biggest challenges.
I'm also be sharing a few of my own stories along the way, aimed to help you develop your own story and understand the power of sharing it with others.
We'll also be featuring the work of other LIGHTbeamers from our Community as they continue to hone their story and shine their light into the world!
