A Painted moon with the text 'Soul Story'

The Complete Storytelling Course for Coaches, Creatives & Change-makers

Writing your own book with Cate Butler Ross

You want to captivate them with your message…

You dream of being a thought leader – someone who not only serves your clients and customers, but inspires your followers.

And you don’t want to just move your audience to action, but really MOVE them, heart and soul…

…because you know that’s the only way for them to truly HEAR what you’re trying to say – and what you have to say matters.  

You’re a change-maker, a heart-led entrepreneur, and you know you have a message that can change lives…the problem is, it’s so hard to be heard.

Online, on stage, in print, in person… there’s so much distraction and noise and it’s hard to capture their attention.

And if you’re not careful, you can come across as preachy or like a talking encyclopedia (that’s the quickest way for fingers to start scroll….)

So what’s the answer?

Well, STORYTELLING!

Give them a ‘Once upon a time’ & they’re hardwired to listen…

Which is why every entrepreneur, changemaker, creative and coach is told over and over again…. 

SHARE YOUR STORY!

Story moves. Story captivates. Story impacts. Story sells.

But how do you use story in your communications in a way that will get your people – your soul tribe –  to listen?

How do you actually tell a good story? Or even recognise you have a story to tell?

Because yes, there’s ‘your story’… (that series of events that got you to wherever you are with whatever you’re doing)

But then there’s your stories. And that is one of the most colourful and original and creative tools in your arsenal.

Because when it comes to stories, you’ve already got tons of great ones.

Stories that will get you remembered for who you are and what you stand for.

Stories that can inspire...

Stories that can serve…

Stories that can connect…

Storytelling for your business isn’t one size fits all.

It’s not about hiding behind a story that you once heard someone else tell…

It’s about framing your message with a story that’s unique to you. Because even if your story doesn’t seem big enough, glamorous enough or different enough… the best story is always the true one.

Storytelling for you business isn’t pot luck. It’s a craft.

And a craft that you’ve been using and listening to and absorbing since you were tiny… which is why it’s something you can learn.

When you do, you can choose the right story for the right moment; start it in the right place (which isn’t necessarily the beginning), know what to tell them next, and how to leave them wanting more…

 

Cate Butler Ross Story Telling Guide by the Luminous Media

These are the stories that create a movie in your head.

So your story stays with them

Long after the story is over.

Cate Butler Ross - Soul Story

And you can do this too.

You just need to learn how to spot your stories and tell them in a way so people stop and listen.

Which means no more…

Whispering from the back row while you’re on stage, because from your first few words all eyes (and ears) are on you.

Wondering whether people like your email newsletter because your subscribers are actually replying to tell you that they love them!

Forgettable cookie cutter social media posts because you’ve framed what you’ve shared with one of your own stories – & no-one else has those..

The Storytelling Course for Coaches, Creatives & Change-makers

Your complete guide to unearthing your story goldmine & becoming a powerful storyteller, so you can captivate, connect, convert and finally make the impact your dream about….all in a 4-module self study course.

Hi, I’m Cate

And I’ve spent my whole life studying and sharing stories, which is why I know you have an important one to tell.

In fact your whole life is made up of 100s of stories which you could be using to inspire, educate, entertain and serve your audience so you can step into the authentic leader you truly are.

I spent more than 15 years writing captivating stories for the UK’s top magazines, profiling and ghost writing for leading figures and household names from Oscar-winners and industry leaders, to Olympians, and activists, so it’s safe to say I know what makes a great story.

And I know from the 100s of everyday people I’ve interviewed along the way – entrepreneurs, activists, change-makers, artists, experts and artisans – that everyone has a story to tell; it’s just sometimes you need a little help working out what that story is & how to tell it.

 

“When you understand the art and craft of storytelling, you don’t need a journalist to help you unpick your story; or a PR to tell you what it should be; or even a crystal ball to figure out how to get your audience to understand who you are and what you stand for….

Because when you become a storyteller you don’t have to try to get noticed or push yourself forwards – you’re already the most captivating voice in the room.”

You have a story – in fact you have stories.

And they are the key to being remembered and known for what you do.

So are you ready to share your Soul Story?
