your story unleashed - logo- APRIL 7th FPO PINK v2

A course that puts
your true value
into words

How do you get to do the work you want at last?

By communicating

your worth

Have you ever thought, “I can’t say that at work!”?

It’s not just you. There’s relentless pressure to conform to light, jargon-filled talk to survive in the workplace.

Disappointment, sadness, and emptiness have precious little room to be spoken of without using hushed tones or private chat rooms.

If this soullessness hurts, we want you to:

Cultivate the know-how to bring your authentic self into spaces where money and reputation are on the line. Skillfully so.

You’ve probably witnessed someone expertly weave a personal story into a work-related point they’re making.

They looked relaxed and exuded confidence, and they weren’t taken any less seriously for sharing vulnerably, even if their voices shook for a moment.

They were real (and the opposite of cringy, nothing like those who overshare at the water cooler.)

Their story clarified their uniqueness; it set them apart in a sea of sameness.

These magician-like people elicit awe and envy in many of us.

Yet, their talent isn’t as rare as you might think.

You have this same capacity in you; you just haven’t experienced a professional space for this kind of storytelling skill to flourish.

So, we created this course.

Unearthing personal stories will make you a more effective communicator.

It’ll also:

  • Give you insight and words to describe your greatest inner strengths
  • Prep you for taking the stage, penning a leadership book or memoir, embarking on a career shift or an entrepreneurial venture—whatever your vision of “leveling up” entails, and
  • Connect you to yourself, returning you to who you were before the world told you who to be

If you want this, we want this for you.

This course offers a rigorous yet sensitive environment perfectly suited for you to do just what the title says: unleash your stories.

Please join us. We’re going to laugh, cry, and have so much fun.

Your guides,
April & Rumi

core stories

In Your Story Unleashed, we use carefully selected prompts to get to your “core stories.”

These short, simple, and sticky narratives from the past are your personal playbook. They guide your everyday choices and your point of view. Knowing your core stories makes you self-aware and doubt-proof. Using your core stories busts through Imposter Syndrome and makes you influential.

“​​Rumi is a gem. She has a calm and deeply thoughtful presence that helps you ease into building your brand authentically. She’s a master at bringing you out of your shell and packaging that in a beautiful way.” —Marci Tonnemacher, HR Director, mathematician, artist

“Thank you so much for holding space for me to nurture this sacred work I do and my ‘book baby.’ I was so moved by the depth of your wisdom and resonance with my work.” —Nat Vikitsreth, founder of Come Back to Care and host of the Come Back To Care Podcast

“​​April holds a strong, safe, empowering container for the hard work of separating storytelling grain from chaff. Her combination of clear, concise, actionable feedback while keeping my feet ever-so-gently to the fire has allowed me to sort and process decades of experience into a coherent narrative of how my multicultural lineage has shaped who I am in the world. Whenever I get stuck in the story-crafting weeds, April is able to tap into her phenomenal toolbox for just the right implement, from story-wrangling spreadsheets to guiding my structure of an impactful tale.” —Dr. Ann Blake, Environmental Scientist and Changemaker

“Sometimes with what happens in your life, you never really look at what you learned from it. April’s questions prompted me to see what I learned, what my values were and how I grew.” —Carolyn Goto

“April gives you permission to play with your story in a safe environment. She invites you into an experience that feels like you can take that little bit of risk, without being judged. She has this magical way of prompting that guides you deeper and deeper and deeper into your story until you’re face-to-face with the values you hold most dear. The real gift in her process is you think you’re telling a story, and then suddenly you’re standing on the frontier of your own values set. That’s when you realize, ‘this story matters to me because these things matter to me!’” —Dan Senter, spiritual leader

The real gift in this process is you think you’re simply telling a story, and then suddenly you’re standing on the frontier of your own values set. That’s when you realize, “This story matters to me because these things matter to me!”
