Congratulations on taking the first step toward telling your story and sharing your message authentically, confidently, and responsibly! As a Voice Discovery Coach and marketer, I am here to help you share your story with the world in the way that is right for you WHILE empowering you to discover your voice, help you develop the courage to use it, and identify the best means for distribution to and connection with your audience. Whether you are a writer, speaker, minister, musician, or businesswoman looking to advance your communication and speaking skills, I am looking forward to seeing if we would be a good match for one another to bring you to the next level.
What the heck is voice discovery coaching?!
After spending years as a ghostwriter being the voice for others, I realized I was hiding my own voice behind my career choice and making excuses for why I didn’t have time to write my own books. That was a wake-up call for me that led me to start publishing my own writing and poetry online, speaking in front of groups, and sharing my poetry at live readings and as a featured poet. It also became the foundation of a program I spent the next three years developing to help people become the writer, author, singer, minister, speaker, poet, or actor they previously thought was impossible until they worked through blocks, overcame fears, and stepped into their authentic voice. While I never put my ghostwriting fully aside, I started to fall in love with the program I developed and the results I began seeing with my clients.
Years later, voice discovery coaching with me has empowered many individuals to write books, become speakers, and step into new careers they never imagined themselves within. It has empowered people to step into their best lives and become the version of themselves they never thought possible for them because of their backgrounds, social statuses, or lack of confidence. It has helped entrepreneurs create programs that are changing their communities and has provided people who felt like giving up the resources needed to realize they were just opening the wrong doors and remaining silent in the wrong areas. It has empowered folks to live courageously and break through their own walls. And most importantly, it has helped people dream with deadlines and set goals that have become accomplishments.
In the voice discovery process, we will work together through a series of exercises and discussions as you break through whatever obstacles are blocking you from knowing your true voice and how to use it well. We will identify where you are using your voice best, which situations are ideal for your whisper to be louder than others’ shouts, and how to translate that learning into the right platform for your talents and audience. Some folks have come to me to blog and ended up realizing through conversation and personal perspective that they actually desired to vlog, sing, or create artwork. Others have come to become stronger communicators for their careers only to find they wanted to start their own businesses. Not all people need to share their stories through books; there are so many platforms available for you to connect with the people assigned to your life! Some people have gone on to become artists and filmmakers while others have become business owners or advanced in their careers. The possibilities are endless!
You have a purpose and you have people connected you that you haven’t discovered yet because you haven’t stepped out of your excuses or fears and into your possibilities. Whatever happened to you or whatever you did to others can become the foundation of strength upon which you build a lifetime of memories and change… but only if you are courageous enough to do so.
If you are ready to give yourself a chance to shine, to say “yes” to yourself the way you most likely do to others, to free yourself from the chains others have held you back with all these years, let’s talk! Let’s talk about who you are and why you want to learn how to use your voice. Let’s talk about what you are feeling inside that made you search for a ghostwriter or look up a coach, and let’s identify what you need from me, or even from someone else that I can guide you toward. If we agree we are a good fit for one another, we will work together. If I think you need someone else, I will help you find that person.
I am ready to work with people who have done the therapy and have reached new heights but don’t know how to reach the next step other than knowing it involves sharing their story and message. I am available for people who see the bottom of the staircase and are intrigued enough to step onto the first step but need some guidance in getting to the top. I am prepared for both the confident woman throwing glitter everywhere she goes and the woman who is showing up each day by implementing skills she learned in years of therapy to overcome trauma. I’ve been both and I am ready to lead you to your promised land with prayer, empowerment, practical exercises, accountability, and a belief in you that you can borrow from me until you use it yourself (just as I’ve had to do from others at many points in my journey). Let’s work together and ensure you share your story authentically, confidently, and responsibly as you help others become free from prisons they have remained in too long!
Are you ready?
To learn more about my ideals clients, read here. There’s a certain kind of person who wants to be coached in writing their book, telling their story, speaking in front of large audiences, or blogging about their life to help others. It takes a person who is unafraid of themselves to ask someone to help them advance in their career, build a business, or walk the stage confidently as they share their story of overcoming the odds. It’s not something everyone wants to do. As an author and former ghostwriter, I understand that it’s easier for someone to hire another person to do the hard work for them. I don’t want to do that for you. Instead, I want to show you how to do it yourself so you can use your voice for the rest of your life, not just for a moment.
When you’re ready to discuss your next steps, let’s connect so I can get you the short application to work with me.
I look forward to hearing from you so we can put action to those dreams and watch them become accomplishments!
In addition to my main service of voice discovery coaching, I offer selected ghostwriting and writing strategy services still to business owners who need help getting their message out and who understand their voice but don’t have time to do the writing themselves or need some guidance understanding which ideas are good and how to connect with their audience better. These services include blog writing, blog coaching, writing strategy calls, and writing coaching calls. Each of these services was implemented based upon requests from ghostwriting project clients and voice discovery clients I have worked with in the past who needed further services. I have experience with large corporations, small businesses, and solopreneurs for nearly a decade as a freelance writer and marketing professional
You can learn about these services and prices here. Because I love writing, if you have other types of projects you believe I would be a good fit for, let’s connect and I will tell you whether I agree. I am open to opportunities to work with people of integrity who have businesses helping others become stronger, better, and more fulfilled. I am especially passionate about working with survivors of family abuse, sexual assault, and other life struggles who want to share their stories and empower other survivors.
Your voice matters, regardless of what you have been told in the past. Each person has a story to share and a way to share it that is unique to them.
