1. 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday: What Words Are You Using to Send Your Message Into the Waiting World? 2:56

Hello to you listening in Ellicott City, Maryland!

Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday and your host, Diane Wyzga.

“I did it! I really did it! I didn’t believe I could do it! But I did it!”

Imagine my client’s enthusiasm when she produced a radically genuine origin story of her very own! It had been a work in progress as heartfelt creations can be. Yes, origin story work takes time and dedication; it is the most consequential story of your life. Why? It tells the story of how you got from there to here. Origin stories are designed to connect with, engage and influence your audience to action while also transforming the lives of those you serve.

Funny thing: when my clients create their origin story they often feel as if it had always been there. I believe that it has been, waiting for you.    


in a whisper so obvious I’ve always known

in words I’ve always been able to hear

 the answer

  Was always there.”

Remember the first time you rode a bike and took your hands off the handlebars? And then because it felt fun and scary you did it again until you were streaking down a hill with the wind blowing in your face and your hands up over your head screaming, “Look ma! No hands!” That’s been the story of Diane's life. Showing up - maybe scared but not afraid - because when you fall down 7 you get up 8.
