Welcome to Show & Tell Academy! I’m Dominique and I'm your Brand Storytelling Coach!
My mission is to help entrepreneurs connect with their audience using their best asset...their stories!
Your audience doesn’t need you to be a perfect version of yourself. Your people don’t need you to have it all together. And your community doesn’t even need you to be the next big guru.
They just need you to be YOU!
When I started Love U Too, all I knew was that I wanted to help people feel good about themselves. When I decided to start sharing my personal story as proof that my advice was realistic and self-acceptance was achievable, a funny thing happened.
I wondered if what I had to share was actually enough to help people. Or whether my own struggle with detaching my worth from my productivity and accomplishments was relatable to other people.
Or if people with worse lived experiences would even be able to find value in mine. Luckily, I kept sharing my experiences (and my stories) anyway.
I started sharing my story on the Love U Too blog, Instagram, in emails, and during the workshops I hosted.
Want to know what happened?
Nobody doubted me! Instead, people shared their own experiences. They shared how much they were looking forward to putting my methods into practice. And they even shared how much those methods had changed their lives (or their perspectives).
Most of these people related to me because I was sharing my own life experiences along with helpful, transformative tips I discovered to solve a problem we shared!
I find that when people consider using storytelling in their business, they tend to think they have to know everything there is to know related to their topic, that they have nothing worth sharing, or that no one will care about what they have to say.
Everything you need to build a relationship with your audience exists inside your personal story. It's those experiences that will cause your people to feel understood. And that got you to where you are today.
It's those same experiences that will help someone else get to where they want to be too by leading them to a solution to their problem...a problem you can help them solve!
I learned just how impactful my own personal story was through Love U Too. But through my career as an Art Director in the advertising industry, I gained a profound awareness of how brand storytelling works.
Like how storytelling is used effectively for differentiating industries, brands and even individual products. I became fascinated with how brand storytelling can move audiences through both words and visuals.
Having used brand storytelling for both national brands and my own personal brand, I’ve developed a unique insight into what it really takes to connect with people through your content.
Instead of thinking about content as another way to 'reach the masses', I like to think about how big and impactful the tiny, individual stories can be to that one person who really needs it.
Whether you're an entrepreneur growing your business in the wellness, travel, or cannabis industry, I want to help you confidently create content you people will love using your story!
