We think we understand story, we often don’t. We get close to the magic, without actually touching it. Story is all things, and it’s time you understand how powerful it truly is. Bring me into your office, university, next event, retreat, and see just how enlightening, motivating, and flat our entertaining a well told story can be!
Fu@k Your Powerpoint! Products don’t sell, story does.
So, let’s find and create language your community and customers can actually FEEL.
This talk explores the intricacies of telling a truly compelling story- one that powerfully communicates why you do what you do, your personal mission, values, knowings, unknowings, and wisdom.
Latin Misfit: No more invitations to the table, it’s time for a new table!
A talk about Diverse Entrepreneurship, Inclusion, Representation, Empowerment, how vital it is to society, and how James Bond was based on a Dominican Man (yes, that James Bond).
Are We Still Talking About This? A talk to Disrupt!
How do we tell stories that actually spark movement and change? We disrupt. If we want change, then we must first disrupt! We must make room for old stories to die so new ones can grow! This talk explores the stories that create a pivotal transformation in awareness and leave a lasting impact.
The Myth of Separation: A talk about Social Responsibility.
Social impact, no. Social responsibility, yes. I believe responsibility must precede impact. Responsibility gives me a reason for my impact. Who’s responsible for Miami being underwater in 20 years, the fires burning down peoples homes, and the islands of trash in the ocean? All of us. (Yes, you too) The companies and the individuals. The systems, the contracts, the profit margin, and the bottom lines we all believe to be status quo. If we can begin to remember our neighbors and friends, imagine them, feel them, see that more often than not the success we seek is really just connection; than we might begin to remember we aren’t that separate from each other.
Words are spells in your mouth… You speak in order to change something in the world. Let’s change something.
Becoming sensitive to your own personal storytelling can help create and recreate the life you deserve. As you tell your story, you shape your life experience for yourself and others. Simply by changing your story, you change your life. I will talk you through what this looks and feels like – how we frame each story in our consciousness and it’s meaning to us, how we give it life, how it gives us life, how it gives us death, how we let it go, how we start over, how we tell a different story, and ultimately, how we can create a different, more magical life.
In this day and age, as we scroll through a million positive and empowering memes, where is the room for the rest of it? Everywhere we turn we’re told to be better, do more, and have more: take this workshop, drink this juice, attend this retreat, happiness looks and sounds like this… Where is the room to simply trust and allow what is already happening, what is already here? This talk explores the power of personal storytelling and that very fine line between self improvement and personal punishment. What stories need to be told and shared so we can trust what is, and allow ourselves to simply rest and BE.
Learning to think and dream the impossible.
Storytelling, and our ability to become aware of own personal narrative, our ability to change that narrative, to tell new stories is a powerful tool to shift the mind to a place where we can begin to think and dream the impossible.
Letting go of the story of how things should go. Embracing that our sense of ‘me’ and our place in this world can expand just by telling more impossible stories.
Let’s face it – most of our stories keep us safe, or we think they keep us safe. The truth is, many of our stories don’t propel us forward, they limit us and keep us stagnant. If we can more consciously access this super power of personal storytelling to let go of stories not serving our growth, stories of hope, resilience, and courage may replace them. Stories that allow us to step outside of our safety box and into the powerful state of uncertainty - this “I don’t know” state where all growth happens, where all magic exists, and where the most powerful changes occur.
