Calling all ambitious, family-centric Creative Bosses who are TIRED of all the noise...

I see you at the end of the every month. You take inventory:

1. What got done?
2. What needs to move over to next month's to-do list?

It's the same story month after month... Do the work. Future pace your dreams + goals. Reset the to-do list.

Repeat.

WHEN DID LIFE BECOME A SERIES OF TO-DO LISTS?! You've worked too hard in your business & in your family to MISS THE STORIES crafted along the way to your achievements. 

Let *your stories* be your superpower in life & business.

I hear these questions a lot:

1. How do I get rid of the noise without giving up on my ambition + dreams?!

2. How do I better savor the stories of my life—time is flying by SO fast?

3. How can I make marketing feel more "ME?"

4. When I'm 80, I want to confidently say that I lived my life awake... but life is so crazy that I can't keep up! I've tried being present, reducing my to-do list, practicing self-care... but it still feels like something's missing. What do I do?!

If this is you, keep reading. Have you ever considered turning inward to your stories to simultaneously create meaningfulness in your life + content for your brand?

Your stories are a major asset. USE 'em.

Meet the Tiny Story Society...

... the best place to slow down from your busy life and take QUALITY NOTICE — without sacrificing your ambition.

What the Tiny Story Society can do for your stories:

  • Walks you through the ins & outs of NOTICING *AND* RESPONDING to your stories on purpose.
  • Delivers a flexible, step-by-step practice to dig into your stories & heighten your awareness in an hour per week over the next YEAR.
  • Primes your lifestyle for mastering the ART of noticing & savoring your tiny stories in ways that help you feel awake, to heal, and to regularly say, "I see you. You matter. Thank you," to your loved ones.
  • Primes your BRAND for long-term, dreamy customers, because they see a whole person, not just a transaction.
You already have a beautiful collection of stories within you. Let's draw those out as seeds of connection, meaningfulness, and fulfillment... little by little, with a light, sustainable practice over the next year.

The best time is now.

The Guarantee

I know what it's like to buy programs and still feel stuck at the end. The TSS is not that.

Join for 60 days, (almost) completely risk-free.

How NOT to get a refund: 
Email me a few weeks in and say, “Marie, I haven’t had time for this. It looks fantastic, but LIFE came up and I’d really like my money back,” and you will NOT get a refund. That’s NOT what the refund policy is for. I don’t want anyone joining this, because it looks cool, but doesn’t actually have the intention of making room in their life for the 30-60 minutes needed most weeks.

ON THE OTHER HAND: 
Try it out. Complete the Intention Reset & Playbook exercises. Do the weekly meaningful activities. Try a Slow Down Session. Share a few stories in the Society. Attend connection calls. Use an accountability partner (I'll hook you up!).

After spending 2 months with us, if you don't feel like your level of story awareness has dramatically increased or that the TSS has over-delivered value based on what you paid? Submit your completed work to show that you used it, and I'll happily issue you a refund (minus $75 - the cost of the *printed* Playbook, because that piece is non-refundable). 

That sounds fair, right?

Purchase with a Purpose 💪🏼💪🏽💪🏾💪🏿🦾

We support the non-profit organization, Operation Underground Railroad. 10% of the profit of your purchase will go directly to efforts in permanently eradicating sex trafficking.

From O.U.R.: In the past six years of existence, O.U.R. has rescued 3,800 victims and assisted in the arrests of more than 2,100 traffickers around the world. The partners we are empowering have collectively helped rescue the lives of more than 10,000 survivors who were enslaved, exploited or at risk.

Take it from them:

“The things you think about are at a different level than other classes. They’re not superficial. They involve critical thinking skills that get you to dig deep within yourself.”
Caroline Collins
“People don’t think they’re gonna miss parts of their life. This practice is about awareness of those moments you’ll miss, so you can DO something now. It’s about less photos, more quality.”
Pam Dubasek
“The Preservation Project (The Practice) helped me pinpoint the things that are “important” and memorable vs the things that aren’t. It helps keep me accountable for the things that really matter.
Kelly Wagner
“In the work of photography, it’s easy to get bombarded with ideas from everyone else. My goal has always been to be my own self. DOCUMENTARY IS VERY PERSONAL. To dig deep and think about a feeling or story, THEN choose when to click the shutter has been very freeing + I’m a better storyteller too.” 
Dreama Spence
“Before TPP, I felt flustered and a little lost. Now, I feel calm and collected and have an action plan going ahead.”
Alex Finn
“I'd expected this to be more like so many other photography related courses I’ve taken, with a lot of assignments and photos needing to be taken. It was a pleasant surprise that that was not the focus.”
Nicole Miller-Cline
I WANT IN ON THIS

Curious about WHAT kind of activities you'll do in the TSS? First up, a clean slate on how you see your stories.

Right away, you'll expand what you notice and open a treasure trove to ways you can use your stories via the 1 hour, reflective Intention Reset Video Series. 

Then, the 52 weekly activities will roll out one by one. Here's a preview:

WEEK ONE: Create your sparkbook.

WEEK TWO: Create your VIP list.

WEEK THREE: Map your story timeline.

WEEK FOUR: Start your Tiny Story List. This is the prize of the whole program! It's like a menu of stories and you'll have yours started in Month One!

OOOH FUN! I'M IN!

Throughout the year, we will dive into: 
  • Meaningful Stories
  • Meaningful Places
  • Meaningful People
  • Stories of Adversity
We'll unearth & respond through: 
Guided observation, writing (the facts + the heart of your perspective), writing letters, making pictures, creating meaningful moments + conversations, clearing the clutter of stories you've *already* preserved, securing the stories you most value, and more. 

If that's not fun enough... ever get tired of content you see from other brands?

It feels a little... cold or stale? A little too much ALL BUSINESS, not enough heart-centered HUMAN?

People do business with people they trust. We trust the people we feel like we *know.*

The activities you do in the TSS will all make for excellent content in your brand to show YOU as a whole person, not just an expert in (your industry).

OH YEAH, I DEF NEED HELP HERE! SIGN ME UP

"I noticed that I remember more of the good, old memories, because of the tiny stories. I love that."

— Annemiek Kinneging

Ok, ok, I know what you're thinking...

"But Marie, my plate is SO FULL. I don't need another thing on my plate."

I hear you. Here's the thing: fifteen minutes. You can make 15 minutes in your week. Sure, some weeks may require more time, but can you start with just 15 minutes? I think you can. 

It's not a question of "Do I have enough time?" The real question is "is overcoming my to-do list and living awake worth making time for?"

Focus on fixing the noise and you'll find more noise to fix. Focus on what you want to notice more of and the noise tends to take care of itself. The point of the Tiny Story Society is to help you *replace* some of the stuff on your plate with more meaning, purpose and fulfillment. You decide what's on your plate.

"I don't see what my stories have to do with my to-do list or the noise in my head."

Give me 6 weeks. In 6 weeks of doing the work, you'll see how some of your tiny stories are dangerously good stories. You'll see how leaning into them will shake up your to-do list and drown out the noise in your head. 

"Will this help my business?"

This is not a marketing or sales program. If you need that, this is not for you. This IS for you if you're a personal brand. This IS for you if you've got the brand content down... you know how to teach and inspire and even entertain your audience... but you fall short in showing up as YOU. You want to create a richer relationship with your audience, because you know that people do business with people. You want to show up like a person, not a "business."  The tiny stories you uncover and uproot are EXCEPTIONAL pieces of content that may tie back to your brand message or, at the least, be little lessons and insights that can benefit them while seeing YOU as a person.
