Do you have something you want to accomplish creatively but you need your own personal cheerleader, accountability buddy and solution sensei?
Do you have something you want, or even need to bring forth but old fear-based stories are holding you back?
Are you self-editing for no other reason than because it’s what you’ve always done?
Have you answered HELL YES to any of the above questions?
Nothing changes if nothing changes.
To be ALL IN, you need to go ALL IN. (And no, this doesn’t mean Quit Your Job or Quit Playing Chauffeur To Your Kids. It just means placing ALL of your TRUST in yourself.)

What people are saying about Change Your Story:
Sondra’s "Change Your Story" mentoring program gave me the courage and confidence I needed to launch my health coaching business. My past efforts (education, careers, blogging, sobriety) had gotten me close to the start line many times but fear always stopped me. I was stuck and needed a new perspective. I decided to try Change Your Story because Sondra’s challenge to go ALL IN resonated with me. I also know my days of avoiding the real work would be over in the 1:1 format. Sondra’s warm, conversational approach prompted me to identify my limiting beliefs and talk through ways to handle them. Her business experience saved me time and money in setting up all the things that go into a website. And Sondra’s creative and enthusiastic spirit showed me how I can engage people in making the pursuit of health a rewarding and even enjoyable adventure. We worked together to clarify my offering, identify and understand my audience, and define my deliverables. We worked hard and had a total blast doing it! I’ve crossed the start line and am confident I can continue for the long haul. Regardless of your story, I believe Sondra has a way to coax out the best in you. Go for it!
When Sondra asked via her newsletter if I had something I wanted to accomplish creatively, something I needed to bring forth, I immediately knew she was talking to me directly, thought a thousand things, and was overwhelmed. And I signed up anyway, and I’m so grateful to my month-ago self that I did. Yes, I was self-editing. Yes, I was stuck doing things over and over because I’d always done them, but I was MORE stuck NOT doing things over and over because I’d always NOT done them. Working with Sondra got me unstuck. Like all good coaches, Sondra helped me break things down into little manageable tasks, but it was much much more. Like a good, reasonable friend, she helped define "manageable" by guiding me through the muck of other things that got in the way. She cleared the path and blew away the haze of indecision by offering solutions that were concrete, but also flexible, repeatable, and things that could evolve as I slowly grew into launching my site. Her expertise and experience meant that working together to “just do the thing” turned into finding things I could “just do” without all the manic overwhelm that usually had me sitting on my hands for years. I had her notes and two hours with her to work toward every week. It was a quick month, and she offered all the accountability and cheerleading and real confidence—not the performed confidence I’d been relying on—to launch my site and set my ideas free.
I was in a terribly deep creative block and even doubting whether it was honest to call myself a writer. Through the weeks we spent together in her Change Your Story offering, Sondra helped me break through the block, harness the magic that lives in the intersection of inspiration and discipline, and push the boundaries of what felt safe and comfortable. The resulting piece has been called my "best yet" and I'm so proud of it for both the product and the process. More than that, I'm reinvigorated in my practice, have a ton of new ideas to work with, and am encouraged to keep going.
