Once apime… No. That’s not a typo. Before I could even read, I could tell stories according my mother. They all started out the same way. For some reason, I didn’t get “upon” so everything was “Once apime,” that’s how I started my storytelling career.
As a pre-teen I started writing my first full length novels, as well as telling stories through other media on stage – such as singing, acting and dancing. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Creative self-expression did and still does light me up.
As an adult, my love and gift of storytelling transitioned into the business world, where I became a curator of copy, content and conversion, ultimately leading me to step into the world of marketing and become a purveyor of promotion, able to monetize marketing through powerful storytelling with brands and in campaigns.
Truth be told, I fell into promotions and marketing in my teen years, starting out by managing and promoting rock bands. I gave them a brand, promoted them online and put them on the map. This blossomed into an entertainment company that I enjoyed running with another creative business partner as well as some lucrative strategic partnerships, brand endorsements and a record deal or two.
I realized early on that there was power in creativity and how it is expressed both with people and with brands. There is power in a presence, an authentic presence. This presence can easily translate into influence. With this influence, you can deeply and profoundly connect with your desired audience again and again.
Authentic Expression – Powerful Stories – Magnetic Influence … that’s how I play. 😉
