Being Brave Enough:

The Power of Owning & Telling Your Story

 “What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. I am especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered to speak up and share their personal stories.” OPRAH

Stories are incredibly powerful.

When you are brave enough to tell your own story it has a powerful impact not only on your life but it creates a ripple effect that inspires and stimulates the community around you igniting positive change and growth.

In today’s world people are craving a different kind of connection that has been lost by the dispersion of our communities, conforming to silence and daily use of digital communication. Humans have an inherent need for connection, to feel like they are not alone in their experiences, to feel safe to use their voice and to be inspired to change a negative state into a positive action that ultimately will allow them to fall in love with themselves again and enable them to fulfil their dreams.

They are looking for you - Your story is one they need to hear.

In this workshop you will learn what tools you need to not only tell stories about your life experiences but demonstrate to your community that you own your story, and are prepared to be vulnerable in order that the truth is heard and acknowledged so others can make informed choices. You will also learn how you can interpret this into a series of communications to engage and inspire your community through varying platforms.

Key Learning:

  • Why people react positively to powerful story telling

  • How to step into owning your story to begin making a powerful impact on your life and business

  • How to craft your powerful story to connect with your community (+ ways to share that story)

If you are a service based business you have most likely had a major life change that was the catalyst to your journey to creating a business that truly serves others in making positive changes in their lives.

This workshop will enable you to confidently share that journey and put aside that ‘who me’ voice in your head and understand what and how to share elements of your story that will benefit your community in their lives.

Owning my story transformed how I wanted to create my business. It made me realise I was simply recreating the same thing I hated about conforming in all the wrong ways to someone else’s idea of what work and business ‘had’ to look like. It had me doing what I thought I was good at instead of what I loved and embodied, it told me I wasn’t good enough and who was I to tell anybody anything? 

Join us in a fun, safe and supportive environment let me help you stop the old stories that are preventing you from achieving your goals and dreams and step out to connect with your community to build trust and engagement by owning and telling your story.

Be Brave Enough.

Here are a few comments from previous CNWM guests:

"I love being a part of CNWM it has quite literally changed my business over the past year due to the support, collaboration and I’ve got your back attitude of the members. Sarah oozes love for her community and is quite honestly a welcoming beam of light in what can be a daunting aspect of business...the networking scene! Aka getting out and meeting new people...come to Come Network with Me you’ll never feel like that again." Sam Geddes

"Networking doesn't really express what this is. You held the space so beautifully and set it up for heart mind soul sharing. It was a privilege to give and get support, enthusiasm, tips and advice from the practical to the profound for ourselves and our businesses. Fab food at Heartfelt Vintage too. Thanks Sarah and thanks Ladies." Linda Thomas

"I am so glad I found CNWM - I can't adequately express my gratitude for your support. I met so many of my clients through your events when I started and now I have my own group as a result of your social media guidance. It is absolutely invaluable. I see so many of your members benefitting from the connection opportunities you create, but as you say "you have to be in it to win it" !!!!" Tamsin Kate Acheson

I look forward to welcoming you to Come Network With Me!
