We help you discover and tell your personal brand story to quickly build trust with your your ideal clients and candidates.




So what is a personal brand story, and why should I tell it?

The old adage goes, “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”

It’s true.

Your personal brand story is the story of WHY you do what you do and WHY you care about the people you serve. It shows clients and potential candidates you care, and telling it immediately builds trust and connection in a way NOTHING else you can say will.

Without the ability to share your story in a compelling and meaningful way (without oversharing), you limit your influence.

Don’t let your ideal clients and potential candidates walk out the door because you missed the opportunity to truly connect with them.

People today demand human connection and transparency. So what may be missing from your business is not more hustle or industry knowledge.

It’s more heart. More YOU.

When you share who YOU are through your personal brand story, you’ll book more business and build your dream team.

“Deirdre, will sharing my personal brand story really make a difference?”


Despite already being quite successful as a speaker and coach, adding my Personal Brand WHY Story, radically changed my business. See, I always thought, “As long as people get engaging content, it doesn’t matter WHO is delivering it.” Boy was I wrong.

On January 11, 2017 I shared my WHY story in a speech for the first time, and the results blew my mind. As I shared, I could FEEL the energy in the room shift. And when my story was over, a man raised his hand and said, “I will believe anything you say right now!”

It changed everything!

I kept sharing my story everywhere I went and due to this ONE tweak, by the end of 2018, our sales had increased by more than 60%. Plus I gained more trust, a better connection with audiences/clients AND I had a lot more fun because for the first time I was bringing the full ME to my work. The experience left me with this AHA – When you STOP PROVING yourself and START BEING yourself…magic happens!

In order to be great, you must first be personal.
