My name is Celinne Da Costa and I am blissfully, head-over-heels, crazy in love with the world.

My name is Celinne Da Costa and I am blissfully, head-over-heels, crazy in love with the world.

I see my life as one epic story.

Born in the heart of Rome, Italy, to a Brazilian mother and an Italian father, I’ve been a child of the world since I was introduced to it.

Since leaving Italy, I’ve gone from living in the quintessential suburban neighborhoods that American dreams are made of, to getting my Communication degree at an Ivy League university, to working as a brand strategist in corporate New York City.

In 2016, I gave it all up to design my dream life: one that has allowed me to turn my passions into a business that fulfills me, rediscover who I really am and what I want to create during my time here, and connect with inspiring humans around the world.

Every. Single. Day.

It all began with a social experiment that took me around the world, and has since evolved into a life-changing journey that proved to me what I always knew in my heart:

We get to choose our story.

GROWING UP, I NEVER FELT LIKE I FIT IN ANYWHERE.

Since I immigrated to the U.S. as a child, I was sold the idea of the American Dream: work hard, climb the corporate ladder, make lots of money, buy a white-picket fence house in the suburbs, retire and travel when I’m old.

I always felt there was something inherently wrong with me for wanting something different. I wanted to:

see the world.

Live extraordinarily.

make my own rules.

I silenced my dreams and instead settled for the “responsible” path to adulthood by attending a prestigious university, getting a decently paying advertising job, and building a life of security and routine.

All the while, I struggled with depression, anxiety attacks, and heart-wrenching feelings of incompetence — I was living a placeholder life, and no matter how much I pretended, I instinctively felt that I was meant for more than what society had prescribed me.

I HID FROM CHANGE, SO LIFE THREW CHANGE AT ME.

By my third year living in New York City, the strong dissatisfaction growing inside me was almost unbearable.

Then, life intervened.

A series of events completely threw me off balance: I didn’t get the promotion I wanted, my then-boyfriend unexpectedly broke up with me on my birthday, my beloved grandfather passed away unexpectedly, and my rent significantly increased. To top it all off, I had a heart-breaking experience volunteering at an orphanage in the slums of Cambodia, one of the unhappiest countries in the world.

I was at a point where nothing was going as I wanted. After returning from Cambodia, I realized that if I wanted a shot at being happy, I HAD to change my life.

I asked myself — am I going to do something about this?

The answer was a resounding “yes.” That day, I decided to take my life apart and redesign it from scratch.

THAT’S WHEN I LEFT EVERYTHING BEHIND, AND TOOK A LEAP OF FAITH.

Six months later, I had quit my job, packed a carry-on, and set out on a social experiment (you can read about it here) to circumnavigate the globe by staying with people with whom I shared a human connection. There was a challenge: I had to be personally connected to everyone who hosted me (friends, friends of friends, people I met on the road, etc).

Shortly before leaving New York, I made a promise to myself:

I will NOT spend another minute of my life consciously living in fear.

I spent close to a year putting my fate into the hands of people — mostly strangers — around the world. An astonishing 100+ hosts in 20+ countries across five continents opened their homes to me.

I believe they did this because they recognized in me what they recognized in themselves: a hunger for purpose, to do more with our days than just work, pay bills, and die.

Regardless of race, culture, or socioeconomic background, every person I encountered along my travels generously shared themselves with me, and as a result, unlocked a love for humanity in me that I didn’t know existed.

I COULDN’T HAVE IMAGINED WHAT HAPPENED NEXT.

When I returned from my circumnavigation, I was hit with the sober realization that I could never go back to my old life again. I had to keep going, but I was a broke freelancer and didn’t know what to do. I asked myself:
What can I do with skill and passion, that will set me apart from everyone else?

The answer was storytelling.

I’ve always been a storyteller at heart, but my skills took quantum leaps that year as I used my brand strategist and writer background to share stories every single day about the people I met, my adventures, as well as insights and breakthroughs in my personal and professional life.

My online community was quickly growing, my brand was getting recognized, and my stories were getting media attention — I was even invited by Forbes to document my journey!

Plus, my entrepreneur friends and companies I was collaborating with were hitting me up for brand and storytelling advice all the time and getting big results from implementing what I suggested.

Even though I was terrified of becoming a business owner, I remembered my promise back in New York City.

I knew in my heart this was THE path that would lead to the freedom and fulfillment I craved.

I LEVERAGED MY STORY TO BUILD THE BUSINESS OF MY DREAMS

Once I made a decision to go ALL IN on myself, life began working in my favor once again.

Within 9 months, I had a six-figure, location-independent business that allowed me to keep traveling, set my own schedule, and work with clients I loved. More than that, I was helping people grow their business, reach more people, and get recognized in their industry… all by telling better stories!

Storytelling transformed my life from the inside out.

Once I got clear on the story that was INSIDE ME, and how to communicate it powerfully through my brand, opportunities started flying at me, including:

et-Z

Having my work featured on media publications including Forbes, Entrepreneur, and Business Insider

et-Z

Building a raving fan base of over 60,000 people

et-Z

Being invited by companies, boards of tourism, and travel agencies all over the world to experience their brand and share stories

et-Z

Capturing the attention of top influencers in my industry (whom I’ve also befriended!)

Most importantly, storytelling has given me purpose and clarity in my life and business. And that’s priceless.

I’M LIVING MY LIFE AS AN EPIC STORY, AND MY PURPOSE IS TO HELP YOU CREATE YOURS.

We all have a story to tell, and that story has the power to shape your reality. Why not make it a reality that is aligned with your dreams?

Ask yourself…

et-

What truly fulfills you?

et-

What is the legacy you want to leave behind?

et-

Are you proud of the life you’re building?

et-

If not… what are you going to do about it?

Your reality starts with the story you choose to tell — to yourself and to the world. Make it epic.

are you ready to tell your story?

“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.”

I was referred to Celinne by a mutual connection, and after looking through her work, I was captivated by her storytelling skills and knew we had to work together. I recently purchased TAP Air Portugal and my marketing team is in the process of restructuring the brand’s message and story. 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.

“Before I hired Celinne, I completely lacked clarity in who I was online. I knew where I wanted to go business wise, but I was unsure of how to truly be “me” in a way that was both authentic and profitable.”

I was afraid to make a mistake with my story because I understood the importance of connecting with my clients. I was stagnating in my fear for a while and it was very frustrating because I was holding myself back from crafting the messaging that was going to propel my business forward.

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.

I knew I’d made the perfect choice in hiring her when she was able to take certain ideas and apply them to my business in a transformative way. She deeply understood me, my business, and where I was going. We had one call in particular that blew my mind. I sat on a bench on the street talking with my notebook out because I had to write down what she was saying. It felt like such synergy.

If you’re thinking about working with Celinne – you won’t regret it!

“As a result of working with Celinne, I picked up a paid international speaking gig, generated multiple 5-figures in revenue in less than 30 days, landed partnership deals with one of the largest brands in my industry, grew my team by 6 and am on track for surpassing multiple 6-figures in revenue for the year.”

At the time of reaching out to Celinne, I was struggling with confidence in myself and my ability to achieve the ambitious goals I thought were out of my reach. I had become disconnected from my “why” and the weight of what actually made my work so valuable for other business owners.

Together we worked on nailing down my vision & messaging which in turn rebuilt up my confidence in what I could achieve. We refined this into a powerful story that deeply connected with my target audience and moved them from consumer to customer overnight.

As a result I picked up a paid international speaking gig, generated multiple 5-figures in revenue in less than 30 days, landed partnership deals with one of the largest brands in my industry, grew my team by 6 and am on track for surpassing multiple 6-figures in revenue for the year.

Once I fell in alignment through Celinne’s help, my entire business world opened up. The opportunities haven’t stopped flooding in. I couldn’t recommend her services any more. It’s an investment you won’t regret.

“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 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!

Celinne is absolutely BRILLIANT at what she does. As a multiple 7-figure business owner with over 100,000 social media followers, one would think that I’ve got this “story clarity” thing figured out. However, something called me to work with Celinne 1:1, starting with her Story Clarity Intensive, because I knew I could make this simpler, easier, and bring even more alignment into my business.

Within just 2 sessions I figured out my TRUE big-picture why, vision and top values that are now giving me more clarity than I’ve experienced in over 3 years of business. I couldn’t believe it only took 2 sessions!

If you’re in ANY line of work that requires you to authentically connect with a group of people, you need to work with Celinne. She will save you so much time, money and energy from trying to figure all of this out on your own! Now, Celinne is like my secret weapon in biz 😉
