How to Create Your “Signature Story”

About five years ago, I had a crazy thing happen to me on the set of the TV show Bones. I’d been an actress for years and yet I had this deep longing for more – more meaning, more impact, and more choices for my professional life than waiting for a director to shout, “Action”.

On that fateful day, I panicked, asking myself that dreaded question…. “What am I doing with my life?”.

That moment has become my “signature story” – one that I’ve shared on countless interviews, with private clients and during my latest product launch – Wishbeads.

It’s the story that explains how I went from actress to entrepreneur, hellbent on helping people become the star of their own lives – lit up, happy and doing work that matters to them.

Now, I bet you have a moment from the past where you decided to leap for the big ideas you’re pursuing now, but saying something like: “Yeah, I just decided to go for it one day…” with a shrug of the shoulders, as if you’ve always been super cool and ready… doesn’t pull people in. They want to know what happened. And if you’re online, in a blog post, interview, podcast, on a video, or in-person, it’s valuable to have some practice with this so you can engage people, effortlessly.

That’s right. It’s time to craft your signature story. In today’s video, I share how to get started writing yours today.

The extra bit of effort and practice will pay off, because the truth is, if you can tell your signature story and deliver it brilliantly every time – it will be easier to find your tribe online, in person and from the stage. I can’t wait to hear all about you!

Awkward on Camera? How to Overcome Your Habits

Years ago as an actress filming a shampoo commercial, the director yelled, “Cut!” and then he said to me: “Alexa, can you please stop licking your lips?” Embarrassed, I became suddenly super self-conscious of how I hold my mouth on camera. (And all I could think about...

The Benefits of Healthy Boundaries

Years ago, I worked with a freelancer who set the most perfect ground rules at the beginning of our relationship: Don’t call - instead, email me, I prefer email. If you email after this time, I won’t respond until that time. And we won’t discuss work on the weekends -...
