I have always believed in the power of story-telling. I truly believe we ALL have a story. I also believe our stories are not for us, they are to connect us to those, we are called to serve.
We all have self-doubts that our story isn't worth telling, and that's because we've lived our stories every day of our lives.
People build relationships and do business with people they know, like and trust. So how do you SHINE through the noise and the clutter? How do you express your shine factor in a unique way that resonates with others?
You do so by sharing your story.
Our Stories Are NOT for Us...
When you tell your story, even though you are giving direct insights to your own personal story and experience, what people are hearing and connecting with is their own story and the relatable connection to your experience.
The more personal you make the story the more universal it will be and the more it will connect with others.
That's where I come in. To help you identify the many ways in which you can SHINE with your own unique experience.
Story-telling will advance your message and elevate you to new heights both personally and professionally and it can connect you with your audience, clients and contacts in a powerful way.

Her Shine Story was spurred by the tragic loss of two siblings in one day, a crushing event that threw her into extreme depression. As she began to heal, she became consumed with a desire to discover her life’s purpose and shine with it. Today, Clara is passionate about empowering individuals to turn on their inner light, so they can operate in their Brilliance. Clara hosts an annual conference called Leap And Shine Conference and the SHINE Legacy Awards.

I work with individuals who feel confined and unfulfilled with the lives they are currently living, to find the keys to break free and break out of the prisons that restrict and limit them, so that they can rediscover their brilliance and achieve their dreams. I do this by helping them confront, analyse and overcome their limitations, to embrace their Shine Factor™ - those qualities that make them special and uniquely qualified to serve the world in a way only they can. I also offer legal consulting for coaches, speakers and authors.
Nearly every person on the planet wants to write a book in their lifetime but less than 1% ever finish that and get it published. Writing a book signifies that you are serious about your story or message. A published book gives you authority and opens many doors for your brand growth, including consulting, speaking engagements, and in-person meet-ups with your tribe. I help upcoming writers build a writing career and work with accomplished writers to tell better stories and birth their book projects into the world.
As President & Founder of The SHINE Zone, I offer corporate development trainings, staff development workshops, leadership programmes, and strategic consulting for small businesses and high-powered professionals to support, engage, empower and craft creative ways for their workforce to function optimally and profitably, by equipping them with creative tools and strategies they require to shine as a team - as well as upscale their organisational practices, uplevel individual & group performance, and transition to their Shine Zone™.
