Join us as we Share the Power of Authentic Connection

Some of the richest conversations come when we don't have to be on. 

Thanks for inviting me +Dana Rivera I'm looking forward to sharing this time with you and our audience members!


#authentic   #conversations   #connection  
 
Please tell me a “boring” story! In the midst of the online powerhouse solopreneurs with inspiring stories of failure and how they overcame their obstacles, how do you tell your story if it doesn’t seem so grand, intense, or full of hardships?

Watch on Crowdcast: http://bit.ly/storytellercircleshowgoogle2

What if your story just seems boring? 

The great news is that what you may think is “boring” or too common is exactly what others will connect with. That time you stayed up all night trying to finish a project, only to realize you never hit the save button or when you and your friends piled into one car for a road trip to the beach. 

Finding your story is all about looking within yourself and rediscovering your creative confidence. Telling your story involves pushing past the “fear of the messy unknown, fear of being judged, fear of the first step, and fear of losing control.”

+Pamela Ziemann  , Creativity and Confidence Catalyst, helps solopreneurs develop confidence and creativity from the inside out – and then boldly express their unique message to the world, so they can have the impact (and success) they desire.


In this episode of The Storyteller Circle, Pamela Ziemann will be sharing:

- her personal story of finding her voice and message
- why you and your story should dare to be boring
- the power of finding your story and your voice from inside yourself and in everyday moments
- how to ground yourself so that you can find your inner power, voice, and story


Please Join us!  Just RSVP to this event, bookmark the page and return back at showtime.

More About Our Guest: 

Pamela Ziemann, Creativity and Confidence Catalyst, helps solopreneurs develop confidence and creativity from the inside out – and then boldly express their unique message to the world, so they can have the impact (and success) they desire.

She rarely spoke as a child and was dubbed the girl who speaks with her eyebrows. She observed life around her and tried to make sense of it. One day in her early 20s she put what she could in her little Toyota truck and moved 1600 miles from my home.  She wanted what these authors wrote about… complete freedom. So, in her 30s, she left her appraisal life behind to travel throughout Asia and Europe. Every page of her passport was stamped, but something was still missing. 

Her life-changing moment came in the frozen food aisle at the grocery store. You’ve seen those brightly colored packages of frozen meals in a box? she bought them for years and believed the marketing health claims. One day when she was about to toss a ‘Healthy Choice’ meal into her cart, she realized that these profit-driven corporations didn’t care about her at all. They cared about their bottom line. She was determined to stop relying on others and get back in touch with her own creative genius. 

It took her years to get up the nerve to speak to groups. But one day, at a National Speaker’s Convention, she learned a different way. The facilitator told them that they each had a minute to speak or not speak. She decided ahead of time that when it was her turn she would simply be silent and enjoy the connection with others. About 20 seconds into her minute, she intuitively felt like saying something to the woman across from her. Words emerged from her heart, not her head.  People listened and she felt happy. 

It was like taking off heavy armour and feeling surprisingly more powerful without it. It expanded to other areas of my life. she started wearing organic clothes because they felt better on my skin. I switched from a diet that benefited the large, industrial food systems to one made her feel light, flexible and energized. she spoke my truth. She understood what she had read so many decades before in M. Scott Peck’s book The Road Less Travelled.  Transcend traditional culture. These were no longer just words on a page. It was a way of life. Now she’s excited to help other entrepreneurs find that same freedom, because this kind of lifestyle has opened up SO many beautiful opportunities in her life.

More About Dana Rivera:

Disney & Pixar freak, child of the 90s, vintage camera collector, and world traveler. Dana is a Video Editor & Video Vision Mentor at Dana Rivera Films. Before she started working with online women entrepreneurs crafting their video visions, she was a documentary filmmaker, creating online short films for nonprofits and corporations. She was on the front lines of crafting strategies for how video aligned with their core messages and principles, filming interviews and events, editing their content into meaningful finished videos and finally implementing plans for getting them in front of the right people. The results: Rapid growth of their youtube channel, increased awareness of their cause and mission in the community and jumps in reaching their fundraising goals.

But she had that big student debt number floating over her head, so she grew her business on the side to pay it down. And she fell in love with helping women conquer video.

She believes that Every person’s story matters. No matter how seemingly small or big, they all have an impact and deserve to be recorded.

+Cat Shrier Banana, olive oil, coconut milk (and Love) You could probably get by with a 1/2 banana and enough equal parts of olive oil and coconut milk to get the consistency of regular hair conditioner.

Creativity and Confidence Catalyst
Introduction

Hi, I’m Pamela Ziemann, Thanks for stopping by!   

I help solopreneurs develop confidence and creativity from the inside out – and then boldly express their unique message to the world, so they can have the impact (and success) they desire.    

Boldly expressing our unique message isn't something that comes easy for most heart-centered entrepreneurs. But it's the very thing we need to do to succeed. 

If this girl, who rarely spoke as a child, can learn how to do it, I know you can too.

I observed life around me and tried to make sense of it. I tried to fit in. The church, politics, school, the whole midwestern, protestant work-ethic scene.  

One day in my early 20s I put what I could in my little Toyota truck and moved 1600 miles from my home. I didn’t really know what I was doing, but it felt like a step in the right direction. 

There was a certain amount of independence in my job as a real estate appraiser – but placing values on homes all day while reading metaphysical books at night was like having one foot in the old world and one in the new. I wanted what these authors wrote about… complete freedom.

So, in my 30s, I left my appraisal life behind to travel throughout Asia and Europe. Gave my house key to a renter and sent my dog to live with my parents. (Leaving him at the airport was the hardest part) 

Every page of my passport was stamped, but something was still missing. (Sure, you might think I found a guy who solved everything, but that’s not what happened.)

My life-changing moment came in the frozen food aisle at the grocery store. 

You’ve seen those brightly colored packages of frozen meals in a box? I bought them for years and believed the marketing health claims. I wasn’t super fat, but I wasn’t skinny anymore either. One day when I was about to toss a ‘Healthy Choice’ meal into my cart, I realized that these profit-driven corporations didn’t care about me at all. They cared about their bottom line. I’d been duped. Like so many people, I had fallen into the mindless consumerism trap. That was embarrassing for a self-proclaimed, free-thinker like me.

I was determined to stop relying on others and get back in touch with my own creative genius.  

There were times, here and there, when I felt completely connected to my inner wisdom. Like at a drumming circle. I knew exactly what to do as long as I stayed in my own rhythm. That feeling became my new benchmark. I wanted to feel like this all the time.

Another area of struggle for me was public speaking. It took me years to get up the nerve to speak to groups. When it was my turn, I was so scared I could hardly formulate a thought and speak at the same time. I had to memorize each line to get through it. But one day, at a National Speaker’s Convention, I learned a different way. The facilitator told us we each had a minute to speak or not speak, whatever moved us in the moment. No pressure. 

I decided ahead of time that when it was my turn I would simply be silent and enjoy the connection with others. A funny thing happened though. About 20 seconds into my minute, I intuitively felt like saying something to the woman across from me. It was unexpected. Words emerged from my heart, not my head. I wasn’t trying to figure anything out. People listened and I felt happy.

It was like taking off heavy armour and feeling surprisingly more powerful without it.  

It expanded to other areas of my life. I started wearing organic clothes because they felt better on my skin. I switched from a diet that benefited the large, industrial food systems to one that made me feel light, flexible and energized. I spoke my truth. I understood what I had read so many decades before in M. Scott Peck’s book The Road Less Travelled.  Transcend traditional culture. These were no longer just words on a page. It was a way of life. 

If you resonate with my story and would like to learn to develop the kind of ‘inside out’ confidence that just naturally attracts ideal customers, great relationships, and financial abundance – then check out my offerings or sign-up for a discovery session at http://www.PamelaZiemann.com
