Anne + River – a match made in heaven
First of all, welcome to the Speak Your Truth community! River and I are so excited to be pairing together to help you gain clarity on your message, your voice, and your truth in order to confidently bring your writing out into the world!
How we came together to work together is a pretty magical story, though.
River had been following my journey from the time I was in Chicago, before I ever received the intuitive nudge to sell all my shit and hit the road. At the time, we were in completely different points in our lives. Both in different relationships and locations, River was working through her own darkness as I was about to enter into mine.
She would hop on my livestreams and supported my personal growth, but we never knew much about one another aside from the very little contact we had on social media.
A year later, while I was in Phoenix (in 2018), I began to share publicly about trying to sit down to write my book. I had previously tried a few times to no avail, and was trying to hold myself accountable by sharing about it openly on social media. River reached out to me and said, “I don’t know if you know this, but I’m an editor and would love to help you with your book.”
I knew nothing about writing, editing or publishing a book and my first thought was, “I’m pretty sure I need to have a manuscript before I can work with an editor.” So, I politely declined and told her I would keep her in mind for when I was ready.
A month later, once in California, she reached out to me again. I was promoting a coach academy to teach coaches how to create a coaching business, as well as the actual tools, techniques, and process I use to coach my own personal clients. It was only available to former 1:1 clients, virtual classroom members, or those who were interested in working with me 1:1 to be coached alongside the program.
She was interested in the program, but wasn’t sure about investing in the program and 1:1 coaching, even though she had been wanting to work with me 1:1. Through a brief conversation, she shared with me once again that she was interested in working with me on bringing my book to life and we realized we could barter services.
That was the beginning of our collaboration.
Through that process, not only did I learn how to write and publish a book, but I began to see the bird’s eye view of my life and business. I began to see how everything in my life continued to lead me toward my big vision.
Writing my first book, Radical Rebirth, was the most transformational thing I ever could have done. It helped me heal, gave me more confidence in the gifts I have to offer this world, and gave me unlimited content to be able to use on my social media platforms. It gave me a way to serve those who aren’t my clients and may never be my clients.
River is a genius editor. She’s an intuitive mentor, as well, so as we work with one another, we are consistently channeling messages back and forth, which we bring into the work we do with others.
She’s worked with an abundance of authors in a variety of genres, helping them bring their story to life.
She’s the owner of Gigcraft Media, a platform to help all kinds of creatives showcase their creations to the world. She’s also the owner of an author’s agency, Unpublished, to help authors through the process from concept to self-publication.
River is also a main collaborator on future projects and upcoming events with my company, Liv & Co.
We are so excited to have you as part of the family! We totally understand that where you are right now, you may only see writing as a hobby. You may have never considered being able to actually make an income with it. We’re about to change all of that for you!
Buckle up cuz shit’s about to get real!
