Your Stories Don’t Define You, How You Tell Them Will

Jul 28, 2020

It's not unusual to have a "Series of Unfortunate Events" in our lives, those multiple years of trauma, grief, and struggle, that can either make us bitter, or help us develop resilience in a positive way, to become even more compassionate toward others.

Kerrian Fournier went through two of those phases, once in her early career, and again years later.

I often wonder what people see as their source of resilience, and Kerrian's is most definitely the motivation and determination to live a full life, and to demonstrate qualities of resilience, persistence, compassion, and courage for her highly intelligent daughter.

To learn more about Kerrian, visit her outstanding website, and connect with her on LinkedIn.


Sarah Elkins delights in guiding individuals and teams to improve communication, using storytelling as the foundation of her work. She is a Gallup certified Strengths coach and uses that tool to coach her clients to improve their communication in all relationships, and to find more satisfaction at work and at home.

Her book, Your Stories Don't Define You, How You Tell Them Will is available on (supporting independent booksellers), and on Amazon. The audiobook will be available in fall 2020.
