What’s your story?

We all have a story to tell, about where we’ve been, what we’ve come through, and what we want. Securing the right opportunities is about telling your story in a compelling and artful way that attracts the right people, connections, and opportunities.

If you’re an entrepreneur or business, you tell your story and the story of your business.  You tell this story in your mission and vision for the company.  And you relay this story in presentations, marketing, to attract customers, secure partnerships, gain buy-in from business leaders, secure funding, and rally the support of your employees.

If you’re a professional, you tell your story and the story about where you’re headed.  You have to communicate your story on your resume, in interviews, to secure connections, have people remember you, and generate the right opportunities.

As an Artist, Writer, Speaker, or other Creative, you tell your story through your art. You use it to touch the people who are moved by your work, communicate a message, or create a movement.

You have a story to tell. A story about your experiences, your values, your mission, and where we’re headed. You tell this story all the time. But if you aren’t clear about your story, if you’re not intimately familiar with it yourself, it’s hard to communicate with others.

I’ve been working with others to tell their stories for a very long time. What has become clear through all my work, with companies, small businesses, entrepreneurs, and professionals, is that we first have to get clear about the story. From there, everything else comes naturally.

With a clear and compelling story and the right tools, you can accomplish anything. And my work is to get you there.

So, What’s your story?

“Finding Wanna” with Cecilia Deal helped me further understand and define what I really wanted for myself in a career, which was an awakening. Cecilia is caring, insightful and down to earth. Her program helped me find the focus and direction I was looking for. I felt rejuvenated and it gave me momentum in my career search. I think anyone would greatly benefit using Cecilia Deal’s program. – Steven T.


When I first met Cecilia I was transitioning from a corporate VP job and not knowing exactly what I would do next. I had some ideas, but change is a challenging process. Cecilia guided me along the way. Most important and helpful – she asks the tough questions, and in a real gentle way, that serves to help clarify your next steps on the path forward.  – Bernard
