7. 'Your Origin Story' with Robert Tighe

Robert will work with you to define 'Your Origin Story' which describes who you are, what you do, and why you do it. It serves as the foundation for all the stories you tell. By figuring out your why and defining your values, 'Your Origin Story' helps you create more authentic, engaging content that helps you stand out from your competitors.

Process: Crafting ‘Your Origin Story’ is a simple, painless, and enjoyable 4-Step Process.

1. Questionnaire: To help you reflect on your past and what you’ve achieved.
2. Informal Interview: It’s more of a chat than an interview asking a lot of questions, the kind of questions you never take the time to ask yourself. Robert records the interview and transcribes it word-for-word to capture your voice and your personality.
3. First Draft: Robert writes ‘Your Origin Story’ and sends it to you as a Google Doc.
4. Edit and Final Draft: You review the draft and your feedback helps Robert deliver a story that captures you and your unique life experiences and values.

What you get: ‘Your Origin Story’ will be between 1,500 - 2,000 words and covers both who you are (your personality and values), what you do (your career journey and your current business), and why you do it (what makes you unique). 

It can be used on your Homepage, About and Services pages on your website. You also get an edited version you can use for your LinkedIn profile and a catchy LinkedIn headline.

It’s your story, told in your voice so it’s designed to be shared. It marks a line in the sand: “This is me and this is what I’ve achieved,” but it’s also a story you can build on as you evolve and grow. It can be chopped up and used in so many different ways:

  • As your elevator pitch or framework for a job interview
  • LinkedIn and social media profiles
  • About Page or bio on your website
  • Services and Homepage on your website
  • As a script for a video that tells the world: ‘This is me and this is what I stand for’
  • An introduction to a speech or presentation
  • To create multiple blog/LinkedIn posts about your past experiences
  • As the starting point to write that book or eBook you’ve been putting off forever
  • Discover your superpower and rekindle your passion
  • Sum up your past and explain your new direction.
