Beacon Webinar Wednesday 

Date: February 14, 2018 Time: 12pm to 1pm (includes time for participant Q+A) 


Origin Stories: Crafting Your Personal Narrative Everyone needs an Origin Story.

And it’s up to you to tell your story through your own authentic lens. Join Tell Me A Story founder, Hillary Rea, to explore ways to answer the question “How did you get to where you are now?” without telling your entire life story.

You’ll leave this session with:

  • A strategy for brainstorming and prepping your narrative.
  • A game plan for putting your story into practice.
  • A better understanding of how origin stories can work in your professional life
