Storytelling for Creatives
It’s a fact: Well-crafted success stories will help you attract the right clients to your business.
If you find that clients are ghosting you, not returning your phone calls, or frequently deciding to “go with someone else,” this course is for you.
You don’t need to have a team or a giant budget to implement what you’ll learn. What you need is the ability to be vulnerable and to lean into the power of your story.
It’s time to be seen as the ONLY real option. Interested? Sign up for LuAnn’s updates and early bird pricing!
