How To Tell Your Story

How To Tell Your Story

I started blogging in 2008 as a way to get my random thoughts (or as I call them, my Mind Mumbles) in a centralized location. I journaled my prayers in a notebook on my nightstand, but the other thoughts and experiences I had during the day had no home, other than in the folds of my faulty memory.

I started blogging to keep a digital record of life’s happenings, big or small, so I could look back over the years and remind myself of everything from the seemingly insignificant to the monumental moments.

I wasn’t sure when I started blogging all those years ago, however, I had any legitmate story to tell.

That all changed in 2013 when Harlynn died.

Not only did I have a story to tell, but I had an intense desire – almost to the point of physically aching – to get my story out in front of the world. My blog happened to be the easiest way to make that happen.

As I started to write in those raw, unfiltered moments, I began to get feedback I didn’t expect.

People weren’t just reading to find out what was going on in our lives, but they were reading because they resonated with the way I wrote.

I had no clue.

I had always loved to write, but I viewed it as a personal hobby, and not anything that would matter to anyone else.

I was wrong.

Over the last few years, I’ve received response after response of how my writing spoke life into someone’s situation or circumstance. All because I made a decision to follow that ache, and tell my story.

You have the same opportunity.

I want to share with you a resource from one of my writing mentors and teachers, Jeff Goins. A year ago, I signed up for his writing courses and they were transformational for me. His mentorship led to the development of my website, my writing purpose, and was the key to my content production. He taught me the who, what, when, where, and why of my own  writing.

And he can teach you, too.

Tribe Writers is a course that will help you accomplish:

  1.   Identify your true writing voice and start using it in all your communication.
  2.   Build a platform through mastering the art of blogging.
  3.   Expand your reach and find your 1000 true fans.
  4.   Publish your work and start making your first $1000 as a writer.

Jeff not only provides invaluable teaching, but his enrollment bonuses do more than sweeten the pot. The bridge the gap that stands between you simply wanting to write your story, and actually getting it done.

I’ve read his books, seen him speak, attended his webinars, sat in on his coaching calls, and taken his courses. I can tell you Jeff knows his stuff. And you can know his stuff, too.

Telling your story seems overwhelming when you don’t know where to start, but I can confidently recommend you start by signing up for Tribe Writers.

I’m frequently approached by people I’ve never met who tell me they feel like they know me, and how I’ve helped them. Simply because I wrote. I shared. I was transparent.

It’s one of my favorite things about writing. I never know who needs to hear the message, but I always know it needs to be shared. Sometimes it’s weeks, or even months, before I realize it had even the slightest impact on someone. Since implementing the concepts I’ve learned in Tribe Writers, however, that influence has grown and impacted the lives of so many people.

I can’t force you to sign up for Jeff’s course, but I can ask you to consider what you’ll miss if you don’t sign up now. Will it be another year before you get your story told? Someone needs to hear what you have to say. You may not realize it, or even believe it. But it’s true. Tell your story. Let Jeff help.
