Have you built a brand or business that you love, but are feeling stuck and can't help but wonder... "what's next for me"?
Do you know deep inside that your story can help others, yet you hold yourself back from fully sharing it because you're scared, self-conscious, or struggling to nail your message?
Are you discouraged by seeing colleagues in your industry get recognized for their work, while you’re barely getting noticed?
Feeling frustrated with how much time and effort you’re spending on creating content that doesn’t seem to get you the results you want?
Overwhelmed by how many creative ideas are floating in your head, which you just can't seem to string together into one cohesive narrative?
Are you ready to charge higher prices, get visible in your industry, and reach more people... but you're not sure where to pivot your strategy?
Then you're in the right place!
Business is great, but you've hit a wall.
You’ve built a business you care about, are comfortably selling your offers, and keep yourself busy planning out your empire. From the outside looking in, you’re doing pretty okay.
Except... you know that doing “okay” is not extraordinary. You’re too self-aware to hide from the harsh truth that you’ve plateaued and are not living up to your fullest potential.
While your peers would look at your life and perhaps envy your success, you can’t shake the feeling that there’s more out there for you... if you only knew how to share yourself in a confident, empowering, and meaningful way.
You find yourself at a loss when it comes to talking about your story, which is so frustrating because it can help people. Some parts feel downright too uncomfortable to share, and you cringe at the thought of blasting social media with “poor me” sob stories.
You catch yourself hesitating to share what’s really on your mind because of what others may think.
You care so much, and that’s why you spend an unreasonable amount of time creating content for your audience. Yet every time you hit publish, you can’t help but feel underwhelmed by the "meh" response.
You wish you could just translate the messy bundle of ideas inside your head into a cohesive, compelling story that attracts the right clients, turns into sales, and grabs people’s attention.
Speaking of, why aren’t you getting noticed for your brilliant work?! Sure, you’ve had a podcast or article feature here and there, but it hasn’t turned into much. You scroll down your Facebook feed and see your peers being featured in big publications, and you can’t help but wonder…
"why are they recognised for their work, while I keep getting looked over?"
You’re tired of banging your head against the wall every time you need to write a caption, of chasing the media’s attention (it doesn’t feel too good when you have to pay for a feature, does it?), and of keeping yourself small even though you have the potential to impact hundreds, thousands, dare you say, even millions of lives. The worst part is, you ARE AWARE OF ALL OF THIS!!!!
You want to go to your next level, and you’re done holding yourself back. You were put on this planet for a reason, and you have a message to share.
You just need to know how what the steps are to sharing your story with confidence, clarity, and courage, and stepping into that next stratosphere of success.
Well, I’m glad you’re here, because...
You don’t have to struggle with your story anymore.
Growing up I constantly silenced my story.
Even though I’m naturally an extrovert, I refused to say what was really on my mind out of fear of being picked on or judged by my peers (I was that weird immigrant kid, so it happened a lot!).
I did everything I could to blend in.
I went to one of the best universities in the U.S. and got an esteemed job in corporate like I was “supposed” to. All the while, I struggled with depression and anxiety because even though I was successful by society’s standards, I'd forced myself to follow someone else's dream.
It wasn’t until a series of unfortunate events crumbled my life in 2015 -- including a heartbreaking volunteer trip to Cambodia, my grandfather's death, being dumped on my birthday, and not getting a promotion I was expected -- that I decided I was DONE living by other people's standards.
By keeping myself small and refusing to own my story, I was doing myself and all the people who could benefit from my experiences a huge disservice.
I gave myself permission to own my story and I started speaking my truth. The more I did, the more I got what I wanted.
I quit my New York City corporate job
I ripped my old life apart, and created a social experiment in which I spent a year traveling around the world by sleeping in the homes of strangers.
From the beginning, I was aware that I was designing my new story and that I'd need to draw attention to my project to take the next step in my career (even though I had no idea what that was) -- so I tapped into my brand strategist and writer background and strategically documented my experiences via blog, website, social media, and word-of-mouth.
Every day, I told raw, authentic stories about the people I met, the lessons I learned, and pieces of myself I’d never even told my closest friends.
By sharing my message and my "why"in a way that provided my audience with value, I built a loyal following. Publications started reaching out and asking to cover my story. Business owners approached me to learn how the heck I was creating a life I love, a recognizable brand, AND attracting so much media attention.
My story became my
golden ticket to everything I ever wanted.
Most importantly, I gained the confidence to share what I was creating with the world, and this has paid off in dividends.
Fast forward to today ...
Here's what I've created as a result of mastering my story ...
A multi six-figure business that allows me to travel the world to my heart’s desire and work with some of the most brilliant minds in my industry
A personal invitation from Forbes to document my story and experiences... and over 1.6 million views of my column
A TEDx talk that I didn't have to apply for -- they invited me after hearing about my story
Over 100 features in publications including Entrepreneur, Business Insider, Thrive Global, and top 100 podcasts (most of which approached me)
A raving online community of 70,000+ people -- many who turn into paying clients and students
Big brands and boards of tourisms regularly sponsoring my travels
More clarity, confidence, and courage than I’ve ever had in my life
Storytelling has changed my life. It can do the same for you.
I’ve spent years refining what it takes to have a compelling, noticeable presence so that you don’t have to. The frameworks, the tools, the little-known secrets about persuasive storytelling and positioning yourself as a premium brand… it’s all in this online training, waiting to be absorbed by you.

WHAT YOU'LL GET During our 12 weeks together, you will learn...
Here is a peek at what you can expect:
Module 1 Who are you and what makes you unique
Your story cannot take off until you’ve created the foundation, which is exactly what we are going to do in this module.
You’ll get crystal clear on why you do what you do, what your vision is, your core values and why you need them to guide your internal story.
Once you’ve worked this out, you’ll be ready to share your story from a place of confidence, clarity, and courage.
Module 2 The unwritten rules of storytelling
Now that you’ve worked out your internal story, I’ll share some trade secrets (used by Hollywood screenplay writers and even Shakespeare!) for how you can turn any experience into a powerful story.
You’ll learn the 5-step process that every entrepreneur needs to know in order to write a unique hero’s journey, and how to identify your superpower so you can position yourself as the perfect guide for your audience.
Module 3 Create content so that they only buy from you
The next step is to turn your story clarity into actionable strategies for your business. I’ll teach you the best ways to provide value to your audience, time and time again, while never running out of ideas.
You’ll learn how to create a limitless bank of stories that you can pull from anytime and finally understand what content you need to be creating to increase your profits.
Module 4 Use your story to sell with integrity
Now that you feel confident knowing your story inside out, it’s time to create a brand story that sells. You’ll learn how to present your story to the media (including techniques I’ve learned writing for Forbes the past 3+ years and how I’ve blown up people’s careers with just one article) and present yourself so you’re the only one people think of when they need someone with your expertise. Your story will do the selling FOR you -- so you can focus on building your empire.

Frequently Asked Questions
Oh God, yes. A trend that I see happening a LOT in the industry is that as people grow their business, they lose sight of why they started in the first place or their brand becomes outdated as culture and audience demands shift. Too many businesses make the mistake of doing their brand work once and then not looking at it again for years... meanwhile, competitors catch up and your relevance goes down the drain. Your story is like a garden: it needs to be consistently watered and taken care of, otherwise the fruits of your labor will die and useless weeds will replace them. Your story evolves and grows like you do, and many times neglecting this is the ONLY thing holding you back from tapping into the next level of your business. This program will provide you the framework to revisit and update regularly so you continue being relevant, visible, and growing in your industry.
Storytelling has been proven to be 22x more memorable than data, it releases feel-good chemicals in the brain that make people connect, it raises your brand's perceived value, and so much more. When you're clear on your story and know how to tell it, you can reach more people, get visible, establish yourself as an expert in your industry, and create offers that are powerful and speak to people's hearts… Think about the big names out there: Oprah, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, to name some. They all have created a bigger-than-life story around themselves, and their brand stays consistent even as they switch up their businesses.
Storytelling comes in so many forms: writing, video, art, speaking, etc. It's not about being a good writer, but rather about finding what medium best aligns with you and understanding how to tell the story to meet your goals. If that's what's stopping you from signing up for this program, the good news is that you will learn what it takes to share a compelling story (writer or not) with Master Your Story.
Your story may not be interesting to you because you've lived it, but nobody else has which means there are experiences and insights that are unique to you and people will be interested in learning about. It's not what you say, but HOW you say it that gets your message across. Anything can be turned into a good story and that's I'll be teaching you how to develop your storytelling muscle so you never run out of interesting content to create.
Hell yes!!! That's what I love about this program -- it's so versatile and applicable to a vast array of businesses as well as personal situations. Whether you're a service provider, have a physical product to sell, or just looking to creatively express yourself and build your personal brand, this will help you. Master Your Story is designed to pull out your "why" (everyone has one), get your clear on your core story and the manyyyy stories you could tell, and how to leverage those stories to create better content, expand your reach, get noticed by the right people, make more sales, and create value and impact with your message.
You may be familiar with or taken my last course, Create Your 7-Figure Brand Story. If so, this program is still a great fit for you! Master Your Story includes over two year's worth of new insights, techniques, and information I've learned since launching that course, and only 1 of the modules shares similar lessons.
Due to the live nature of this course, no refunds are offered. But, you'll be receiving lifetime access to the content so you'll always have access to the material and whatever is added on at no extra cost 🙂
For the Master Your Story online program, you'll be receiving recorded training videos, Q&A recaps, and no-fluff PDF workbooks so you can turn each lesson into action, as well as access to a private Facebook group community so you can connect with your peers and receive all the support you need.
If you upgrade to the Group Implementation Coaching package, you’ll be receiving all of this PLUS weekly live group coaching calls with Celinne and guest experts every week.
Every Group Coaching Session will be recorded and put into a member's area so you can access it whenever is most convenient for you.
I hired Celinne to promote Portugal in her unique way, specifically to showcase TAP Air as an expert on all things Portugal, to humanize the brand, and give it some personality.
There are loads of influencers and brand coaches out there, but Celinne has a special skill of finding a story where most people won’t - she actually talks to and interacts with people, finds patterns, and turns her insights into heartfelt content that moves and influences her audience.
The content she helped us create for our Portugal Stopover campaign had stellar engagement, told a unique story, and helped the internal marketing team better understand the brand’s strengths.
I was really happy with the brand story work Celinne did for us and the content she created. I’ve already hired Celinne to do similar work with my other airline in Brazil, and will continue to hire her in the coming future.
David Neeleman Founder and CEO of Jetblue Airways & Azul Brazilian Airways, Co-Owner of TAP Air Portugal
I created a successful product in my market with hardly any promotion, and within the first hour of working with Celinne, I understood that I was sitting on an opportunity to create a powerful brand and repeat the same success.
Taking her course helped me cut through my limiting beliefs, gain a clear understanding of why my first product was so successful, and to deeply connect with my brand essence and my audience’s emotions.
As a result, I was able to create such a strong brand story that while I was getting ready to launch my second product, I accidentally put my landing page live and a few people bought right away. When I reached out to those clients to let them know the launch had not yet started, they all responded telling me that they were happy to have bought and were looking forward to working with me.
In short, I had a multiple five-figure product launch and have made multiple six-figures in my business in only half a year after working with Celinne.
I recommend working with Celinne because she's real and excels in cutting through the hidden limitations you unknowingly put on yourself, which prevent you from really connecting with your audience and unlocking your potential to impact the world. She will help you combine your values and your audience’s desires into a powerful story that will transform your brand and business!
Molood Noori Alavijeh CEO and founder of Remote Forever
I’ve been blogging for years and wanted to create a brand I was known for. But, I kept attracting my old crowd and felt like my message wasn’t being heard by the right people. I decided to work with Celinne after my business coach recommended her as I deeply resonated with her Instagram content.
After completing her course, something clicked within me. I could finally communicate my vision to my prospective clients, and was confident enough to launch a new offer. Five clients signed up and I was ecstatic. Creating content became a breeze because I deeply understand my audience: I relaunched my YouTube channel with great success, I’m attracting the right people (who I absolutely LOVE working with), and I don’t feel the need to justify myself or explain things twenty times anymore. I’m clear on what I should be posting and what my offers should be.
Most importantly, I am now confident whenever people ask “what do you do?” Instead of dreading the question, I clearly communicate who I am, what I do, what I offer, and exactly what I stand for. I don’t feel like a fraud anymore.
Celinne has a way of explaining things that shifts your perspective and unlocks extreme clarity and comprehension. I wasn’t prepared to have that many A-HA moments. To be honest, I’ve rewatched the modules and always get a new piece of gold! They are so replicable -- I apply all the lessons to my two online businesses.
It wasn’t easy for me to invest as I was already enrolled in another coaching program. I took the leap, and to my absolute joy, I made the money back a month later by selling out my first offer. My brand story truly resonates with people who want to buy from me.
I strongly recommend working with Celinne because she not only knows her stuff, she’s great at explaining brand storytelling in a way that makes perfect sense. Your message will be much stronger and powerful, and who doesn’t want that?!
Beatrice Chan Founder at Mademoiselle Nomad and BrandSalt
Not only has Celinne's coaching helped me unlock doors I didn't know were there - she has helped me forge my own path and create the reality I want in my life. She has been extremely sharp, intuitive and skillful at identifying my mental blocks and asking the right questions to help me see clearly for the first time, ever.
Since first meeting her, my life has taken a 180-degree turn and I'm more confident and competent than I've ever been: I've started writing for Forbes, I've created a brand that reflects my personality and my values, and I've finally understood the worth and value I bring to my work. I've achieved dreams that felt like figments of my imagination but more importantly, I've recalibrated my mindset so now everything feels possible - it just comes down to taking radical responsibility for what you desire and applying yourself accordingly.
Livia Hengel Journalist & Storyteller, Rome, Italy
Once I started working with Celinne and she started working her word "wizardry" on me, I felt supported in such a wonderful way. I didn't feel alone and she quickly pulled out all the important parts of me. She helped me craft a message and tell my story in a way that felt SO me. I felt aligned with my mission and the impact that I want to have on the world.
Not only did she help with my story, but she listened to my business struggles, my wins, and offered me some GENIUS advice and perspectives that are proving to be invaluable. She looks at the world in a very special way and I greatly benefited from speaking to a businesswoman who is connected to story, soul, and vulnerability in a way that is rare in the world of online business. If you’re thinking about working with Celinne - you won’t regret it!
Jess Lenouvel Founder of The Listings Lab, Canada
Celinne helped me to not only fine-tune my messaging and create an entire bank of incredible stories to share, but she also guided me to dig deep and really understand the impact of my work.
As a result of working with Celinne, I feel so much more confident in explaining my services. I don’t fumble on my words when someone asks me what I do. I am reaching more potential clients through social media because my stories and content are so much more impactful.
We all know in our hearts why we do what we do. But sometimes putting all of those big beautiful ideas into words can be so challenging. If you have trouble properly articulating what you do, how you do it, and WHY you do it I can’t recommend Celinne enough. You will come out more focused, clear and empowered to spread your message and teach from a place of confidence and flow.
