Core Story Sessions is the original 3-session framework of Tell Your Damn Story. During our time together, I’ll help you get crystal-clear on the driving force behind your life and how to integrate it into everything you do. When it comes to storytelling, it’s often hard to see the patterns, beliefs, and narratives that make up our own life. After all, we’re in our story all the time! Through this unique process, you’ll have an opportunity to ‘take your life off for a while’ and see yourself and your unique gifts with clarity, curiosity, and compassion.

* FREE 20 minute discovery call *
This 20 minute call is FREE and will help me get to know you, hear more about you, and ensure that I’m the right person to help you uncover your Core Story.
Over the course of this session we will work together to carefully narrow down your Core Story as well the key stories (or 'pillars') that support it. These include:
Self - Self is what people experience when they meet you in person. Your Self completes the sentence 'I am'. Self is your style, your body language, and your communication. It's the physical body that you exist in and the thing that others are the most quick to assess and analyze. Your Self is a powerful storyteller because it is telling a story all day every day... you don't even have to say a word!
Power - Power is the unique force that makes you effective in your work and vocation. Your Power completes the sentence 'I give/I create/I make'. When working in harmony in your life, it is the skill you use in your work most often. It is the energy that allows you to create your best work.
Spirit - Spirit is your spiritual journey. It houses your worldview, your intuition, and your connection to everything around you. Your Spirit completes the sentence 'I believe'. Spirit can be religious but it certainly doesn't have to be. It is simply the relationship you have with your existence, your world, and your soul.
Core Story - This is a word or phrase that defines and encapsulates the driving force behind your life. Your Core Story is your superpower and the thing that, when active in your life, leads you to your highest purpose, fulfillment, and success.
2 hours of in-person/video time with Kat
What you’ll walk away with:
An unparalleled feeling of self-clarity, love, and understanding. Aka, those juicy ‘aha’ moments that help you see yourself and your contribution clearly and powerfully
In the final session, we’ll dive deeper into your Self, Power, Spirit, and Core and identify what you life looks like when all of these things are working in harmony and what happens when they are imbalanced. We will then design a unique blueprint for you so that you can keep all of these pillars flowing and make adjustments as needed. You’ll have the tools to address imbalance and a detailed plan to ensure that you are in communion with your best life.

“Kat has meticulously designed her one-on-one sessions so you free yourself from distractions and scattered ideas and refocus on your “Why”. After my two sessions with her I realized how many things changed, unintentionally, within my organization that were pulling us away from achieving our mission and telling our true story. Her genuinely curious, thorough and thoughtful questions helped me identify very quickly what needed to change and what the focus of our message and story should be - starting tomorrow! Within 48 hours, after some long brainstorming sessions, I had full clarity on how to tell 109’s story; a doable list of action items and a solid rebranding strategy. Most importantly, her sessions left me with the belief that we playing small does not serve the world. We are all meant to shine through our stories, not just some of us, all of us.”
— Leticia Gonzalez-Reyes | 109 World
“Kat is clearly doing her soul work; she is the gardener of your story, and her tools are intuition and loving guidance. She will gather up the truth inside you that you’ve been longing to meet and plant it (and it is, as always, up to you to water it). The tangible things she gives you to leave with are truly gifts from a wise woman—every person wanting to connect more deeply to themselves, their bodies, their mission on the planet and their Truth could benefit from a story session with her. Thank you for this blessing, Kat!”
— Amy Segreti | Live All of You
“Kat delivers kind, calming clarity. She is the person to turn to when your own scattered ideas are slipping through your fingers. Her thorough and thoughtful investigation into Free Body Project is helping our team unravel the important threads of our story to re-weave something magnificent. ”
— Sydney Skov | The Free Body Project
“Everyone knows a good story when they see or hear one. But figuring out your own story or that of your company is incredibly hard. That’s where Kat comes in. She will help you identify and clarify your story and brand. She will pinpoint your message before you even knew you had one. After working with Kat you will see your brand with fresh eyes and will gain a new perspective and that’s so impactful. Most importantly, she brings passion and innovation and deeply cares about your mission and success.”
— Zarko Palankov | LEADIN
“In a word, Kat Smith is insightful. My brand story was drifting as my business evolved, and I needed help to get on course. Working with Kat was the right decision. Kat asked thought-provoking questions and listened deeply to pull out the nuggets of truth that my clients need to hear. Within a week, I had clarity on my story and a solid marketing strategy. If you have a chance to work with Kat - do it!”
— Kimberly Kosmenko | Kosmenko & Co.
“I signed up for the Storytelling Ninja workshop hoping to learn some basic information about storytelling. I left with vastly more. After a year of feeling stuck, in under 2 hours with Kat, I was able to rediscover my “why”, brainstorm names for my organization and determine the purpose of my online presence. I definitely left with tools to tell my damn story with a lot more confidence.”
— Lindsay Y.
“Kat’s workshop fell in that perfect spot of educational and personal – I left feeling like I had a better sense of brands in general, as well as how to develop mine.”
