Ep51 - Turning Your Storms Into Your Stories

What do you do when it feels like you're constantly experiencing a storm in your life? You turn it into a story!

Our first guest for this season, aptly dubbed "The Trailblazer", coaches purpose-driven individuals to success by teaching them how to profit from their passion, write a book to bankroll their business, and much more. She's a bestselling author, having written more than 10 books, and she loves to help people turn their storms into their stories.

Carla R. Cannon has a story, let's hear it!

  • [04:40] Carla shares how "authenticity" makes her unafraid to share her vulnerable self and her journey to the world.
  • [06:20] She provides an important tip before employees decide to shift to entrepreneurship.
  • [07:09] What is one thing that people fail to see when they hear of speakers and their five-figure brand?
  • [09:11] How can people know that the pain they are going through is something that can be a story for a viable business?
  • [11:04] Carla combined spirituality with the practicality and turned it into something explosive.
  • [12:34] How does Carla find time to write and release one book (bestsellers at that) each year? How did she know what content to write in her book?
  • [14:58] If I have a story to share but no one to share it with, how can I find myself an audience?
  • [19:52] We hear tips from Carla on how to be authentic with our story to attract and retain the right audience.
  • [22:56] Why is writing an important part of the journey for entrepreneurs?
