It has been a pleasure and a delight working with Christa. The importance of story is not something that is new to me. I understand how important it is to tell people WHY you do what you do. Conversations that make connections are conversations that lead to fruitful work. With that said, I have been having a hard time putting my story into words. What I have wanted to say has so many layers and variations. My message kept getting scrambled up. It was coming across jumbled and inconsistent. People were not responding.
Christa has brought her own strengths to the work we have done together. She encourages me, she keeps me moving forward (even when I want to retreat under the covers) and she always tell me what she thinks I need to know (which is not necessarily what I want to hear). I know that she believes in me and that makes it easier to pick myself back up each time I stumble.
At this point, I am much more fluid when I tell my story. People connect and people respond. They want to know more and this gives me the opportunity to tell them more about the services that I offer. It also means that the people that come to me are sincerely looking for what I offer and not just the type of services I provide. My clients are a better fit, and this is better for everyone.
I highly recommend this process to anyone that wants to stand out and stand up. Christa will put you through the wringer, but you will come out the other side ready to shine.
