It's so nice to meet you! I'm Carrie Sharpe, and I'm so glad you're here. I'm excited to learn more about you and your communication goals.
If you're considering the purchase of a coaching package, it's difficult to know who to invest in. Your hard-earned money is on the line, and you want to be sure you'll get the results your hoping for. I totally get it. If we haven't hung out together in my Facebook community, at an in-person event, or in one of my workshops, you're essentially flying blind when it comes to deciding whether to work with me. You're relying on word-of-mouth, which is great, but it may not be enough to base your decision on.
So let's get to know each other better first. You'll find my bio at the bottom of this page so you can learn all the official details about me, including my education, training, and experience. You can learn more personal details on the "about" page of this website, which will give you a better idea of my story and personality. Click here for that. Don't skip that page. It's important to fully understand my background and style before deciding if we mesh. We can also take it one step further and have a virtual coffee chat to get to know each other.
As a Communication Consultant, I believe in individuality. That means I don't follow some sort of cookie-cutter program to help you become a successful speaker. My coaching packages are structured so we stay on track, but you won't be stuck with some one-size-fits-all method. Some of my clients simply want to deliver one specific speech. Some clients want to work on a speech that they can deliver multiple times. Some are corporate professionals who work with me every single month to hone their skills for all of their upcoming business presentations. Some clients have successful businesses of their own but want to incorporate speaking into their repertoires. Some want to speak almost full-time. Some only want to speak occasionally. Some want to travel to speaking engagements. Some want to speak locally only. Some have spoken hundreds of times, and some are just getting started. Some love public speaking, and some are scared to death.
One thing my clients have in common is their desire to connect with their audiences. They don't want to become "spotlight speakers" who only care about getting their name in lights. They want to build relationships from the stage. They want to tell stories that make an impact. They want to teach others how to do what they do. They want to share a message and make a difference. They want to be real. They want to be relevant. They want to serve.
So if you like what you've heard so far, then let's chat. Let's get to know each other better and become friends. Let's talk about your goals, challenges, and dreams through a virtual coffee chat. Let's find out if I'm the person you want to work with and if I'm the person who can help you achieve your goals. If I'm not, no worries. Maybe I can refer you to someone who would be a better fit for you. Regardless, we'll be friends, and that's great, too! If I am who you end up wanting to work with, then this is the beginning of an exciting journey that I'm honored to be a part of!
