“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” - Maya Angelou

Let us help tell your story

Throughout the years of sharing her stories and educating thousands across the county, Founder, Karli Johnson, received literally hundreds of messages and requests from fellow survivors, educators, advocates, business owners and storytellers, asking how she got started professionally speaking - and how she could help them do the same.

Karli works as a storytelling coach, public speaking trainer and storytelling branding and program consultant for people across the county. From Fortune 500 companies to survivors looking to speak out at their first rally, Karli’s professional and empathic approach makes storytelling and branding a fun and unique experience.
