It couldn’t be more perfect that the first guest on the How To Speak Your Truth podcast is my coach and dear friend, Christina Blacken. Christina is a professional badass and storyteller… through her storytelling platform and consultancy, The New Quo, she works with individuals and organizations to help them share their stories with more confidence and clarity. This episode is REAL - Christina shares stories about how she stood up to a terrible idea at her workplace (oof, it was bad!), how she maintained her integrity in the face of a degrading experience with her favorite high school teacher, and how she’s found power by sharing her “trampoline story”: a story that sounds fun, but is actually about experiencing discrimination growing up in Utah. Plus we talk about the difference between your story and society’s stories and how to differentiate them. Your story matters, and Christina Blacken is here to get you laughing and gasping while she tells you why, when, and how to share it.
The female entrepreneurial community where I met Christina is called Dreamers//Doers.
You can reach Christina and learn more about her work on the website of her storytelling platform and consultancy, The New Quo. In particular, you can read her trampoline story here, and hear her preach about money here.
