You need someone to keep you accountable, writing, and inspired. You need me to help you honor the authenticity of your story and wisdom (and avoid falling into stale language and boring adages).
“Katie has been truly a magical outlet for me… a journey of empathy, creativity, and stillness. The compassion and commitment I’ve received has been top of the line and perfect for my unforgiving schedule.” - Dr. michael Marion, Jr., Chief, Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education for the State of California
Why do executives need creative writing chops to become a true leader of leaders? Because you want your lived experiences to resonate with your audience in a way that fully shows:
Who you are
What you know
Where you’ve been
Why you’re human
Where you’re going next and why your audience should come along for the ride.
Creative writing, The Katie Way, is a path to achieving self awareness, amplifying your story, and becoming a leader of leaders.
All the memes and advice about visioning your life and manifesting your dreams is often oversimplified. It works, but only when you know who you are.
Writing with me is a journey of deep self-engagement… so that you can engage your message with large audiences.
I can be a confidant for you. I promise to:
Keep you writing with purpose, passion, and vision;
Provide accountable deadlines that fit your busy life;
Strategize about craft, form, and audience while teaching you the lingo;
Figure out a publishing path;
Help you avoid writing a cliche book with stale adages that nobody wants to read. (#beentheredonethat)
