What's your life shifting story?
You know, that story that changed you to your very core...let you know that since it didn't kill you it would make you stronger.
And how does it help your business?
Maybe you are still working your way into the fullness of the lessons you received during that time.
That's a perfect place to be.
I can help you get to the other side and show you how to craft your story in such a way that your clients find you!
"Sifting through your past to come up with memories and ideas as to why you are in business and why you do what you do seems really abstract. That's why I loved this program. Brenda was able to systematize a process that isn't easily systematized. And yet the human element to it all wasn't lost in the least. I really enjoyed my time here."
Student Your Story Made Simple
"Brenda Adelman is a dynamic speaker, supportive coach and wild woman. Her courses are full of excellent, enriching, deep content. I am truly grateful".
I'm Brenda Adelman (that wild woman)
Storytelling Coach & On-Stage and On-Video Presentation Mentor
I've traveled the world presenting my story in a one-woman stage show (My Brooklyn Hamlet), speaking on the message of my story (forgiveness and using our stories to live on purpose) and leading self-forgiveness workshops and story workshops for audiences as diverse as women prisoners, youth-at-risk, the US military, for peace centers, grad students and spiritual communities.
I've been nominated for awards, won awards (Best Actress, Hero of Forgiveness award from The Hawaii International Forgiveness Project ) and I am a critically acclaimed performer and my show was a Critic's Pick at several International theatre festivals. (Los Angeles, Orlando, San Diego)
I've acted in film, in commercials, industrials and I've been interviewed on network TV and on local TV, in addition to being interviewed for radio shows, telesummits, for podcasts and magazines.
But it wasn't always this way.
When my life-shifting story happened I wanted to hide.
I was afraid to be seen and fearful of judgment.
But- witnessing my story- my full story- getting it out of my head and onto the pages of my journal started my healing.
"Thank you for helping me find the starting line. I couildn't get to the finish line without getting my footing".
From there a public presentation turned my fear into surrender...and acceptance...that to share my story was brave and to courageously share it would change lives.
What I didn't know back then...was that sharing my story would be the foundation of what makes me stand out in my business.
Are you dealing with knowing you have to share your story but afraid to press play when you sit down to do your Facebook Live?
Do you feel nervous at the thought of putting yourself out there boldly and then being judged?
Not really sure how to share your story powerfully and if it's not powerful it could hurt your credibility instead of building it?
What if I told you that in 5 weeks you could have...
the CONFIDENCE to express yourself authentically.
the CONFIDENCE to have procrastination be a thing of the past
You won't want to procrastinate- you'll want to share your message from the metaphorical rooftops because you'll know that you are changing lives, inspiring others and building a name for yourself.

"Working with Brenda revolutionized my writing. It transformed the task of finding my story from an impossible feat to a reality. Her methods, and loving butt-kick style are perfect for guiding creatives of all types to set milestones and reach them".
You'll change more lives.
Think about the leaders today and what makes them stand out...it's their stories.
Brendon Bruchard had the car accident that made him look at his life completely differently.
Ali Brown had less than $20 in her bank account and couldn't withdraw it from the ATM when she needed it.
Suzanne Evans was a secretary in massive debt.
Rhonda Britten's father killed her mother and then himself.
Ted McGrath almost overdosed.
WHAT'S YOUR LIFE SHIFTING STORY?
My own story is one of getting over the murder of my mother by my father and then him marrying her sister, my aunt.
My message is about forgiveness, redemption, and recovery.
You are going to learn messaging in Your Story Made Simple.
Healing my story and then sharing it and helping others was a turning point in my life that was a game changer.
We all have that thing that blocks us until we face it, reframe it and share it.
I want to be the one to show you how to...
<< get to the other side of the block
<< refine your message
<<reframe how you see what happened
<< take center stage.

HERE ARE WHAT A FEW OF MY RECENT STUDENTS HAD TO SAY:
"I was inspired to FINALLY craft my first opt-in freebie, incorporating my new story, and had the courage to officially change my name! Owning your story is powerful medicine" Padme Tanner
"I didn't know how much sadness i had within me. I thought it was just big anger but the sadness kicked in right after my writing. The universe gave me all the experiences during those weeks as synchronicity so I went into deep releasing too. Allowing me to see all the love and appreciation I still need to give to myself. Thank you Brenda". Ina
"I felt unclear as to how it would actually help people. The Story Made Simple course helped me do exactly that--simplify my message so that I could implement it into my business, Truly Me. I needed help from Brenda Adelman and this course to get to this core truth". Eleanor Healy
"The ability to choose, focus on and craft a piece of my story was invaluable...but the aha of how that scene that I "randomly" chose related to my bigger life story kind of blew me away. Feeling safe enough to share openly about anorexia, and on video was also a surprise, I was ready but the space was also very sacred" RL
"This experience was magical. Not only I finally see the connection between what I do and my story but I feel aligned with my purpose. I have a story to share and some other parts of it started so that I can expand on it in the future. The fact that you cared so much about the emotional and spiritual elements of it, along with the storyline made it stand out. I feel deeply connected to my story and that way I know others can feel it too. Thank you! Laís Scortegagna
