I have a beautiful picture on my wall that says, Home Is Where Your Story Begins. That's my motto for sure. Everyone has a story. Some are huge, late-breaking stories, some are simple but heartwarming and others are ones that require a Kleenex box nearby.
I've had the opportunity to spend time interviewing quite a few well known people for various publications and lots of not so well knowns and what I've learned is there is not one person that I've spoken to that does not have something worth telling. On Being is going to be that place to tell your stories.
Weekly, you will read about different people and their stories. You can comment and ask questions and it's my hope that you will go away having learned something from that story.
I would love to interview all of you - too young to be a grandma, cancer survivor, stand up comedian, young at heart, adoptive, homeschooling, career oriented, laid back, creative, searching women because your story does matter.
I ask that you email me and let me know that you'd like to be interviewed. I'll also come searching you out if you don't volunteer! :) The only request that I have is that you grab the "I've been interviewed on On Being" button when you'd like your readers to read all about you.
Now for the giveaway...
