What's My Next Step? Why Did I Do That AGAIN? I Lose Focus Too Damn Easily...!

Been there. Hi, I'm Lorie.

When I've been at each of these crossroads, I've wished HARD for a road map that could help me feel purposeful about my path, confident about what's motivating my choices, and centered in my mindset and attention.

Here's something I've figured out that's helped me to create a road map for myself.

You can use your own life story for clarity and empowerment.

WHA...? Seriously.

Viewing yourself as the Hero of your life story can help you identify your core wants and act on them with clarity, even with the “noise” of constant mental chatter or life distractions.

I created this course to teach others about viewing our lives as the epic stories they are. Doing so helps us glean insights from a higher perspective, and guess what?

In your story, YOU are the Hero. The Main Character. Top Cat. BIG DOG.

Every story has an About Sentence, and so does yours. Because you're the Author of your story, too. I don't mean like heavy-duty writers such as Shakespeare or Tolstoy; I mean Author as in Creative Force!

In this course, I guide you to use basic story structure to look at yourself as the Hero of your story, like an Author would, to evaluate the who, what, and why of your life. When you have that gold down on paper in concise words, voila! You have an About Sentence, your own pocket-edition map to consult whenever you feel the need to be reminded of your inner wisdom and guidance.

Complete your own About Sentence and clarify Who You Are, What You Want, and Why You Want It.

"I definitely do plan to use [my About Sentence]! It will now be my map, my guide to the future, and will help me to avoid so many distractions. I already used it when something caught my eye this week that I normally would have jumped on. I stopped, thought, and realized it was not my true want and avoided the distraction. YAY!"

- Gerri G., Holistic Guide

This course is for you, if you’re keen to:

- tap your inner wisdom to get clear on what feels purposeful going forward,

- identify patterns or limiting beliefs that are undermining your vision and confidence,

- or navigate your way through the “noise” of your everyday distractions and obligations with more focus and intention.

In this 4-minute video, a student, Cornelia, shares with me what she got out of the course. I'm delighted my students have come from all over the world; Cornelia is from Romania, and she is a financial coach. She's also a mom, as you'll see in this clip!


Viewing yourself as the Hero of your life can help you identify your core wants and act on them with clarity, even with the “noise” of constant mental chatter or life distractions.

This course guides you to:

  • View and describe yourself as the Hero of your life story.
  • Identify your Fatal Flaw and work with it.
  • Identify a core, active Want as the Hero of your story.
  • Determine a core motivation for your Want.
  • Create a “cheat sheet” – your About Sentence – to stay attuned to your intention and motivation in your daily life.
  • Channel your attention to support your core wants and full potential.
    + Recognize willy-nilly attention-grabbers (“rabbit holes”) that will lead you astray.
    + Discern whether your “noisy” thoughts need further attention, or can be let go of.
    + Discern whether your distractions and obligations belong in your long-term story or not.

"My hero description instantly helped me to see the conflict between who I am and my fatal flaw. Doh! No wonder I don't have any time--I'm trying to please everyone. And I think that may also be why sometimes I don't feel respected."

- Claudia E., Instructional Designer

I am a storyteller. And so are you.

That's (the back of) me in black, on set.

I’m Lorie Marsh, a longtime media/film producer who is compulsively creative, mentally restless, and determined to be of service to others with my talents.

After two decades working with writers of all stripes, filmmakers, actors, and multimedia artists, I’ve learned a thing or two about stories. We all tell them! Any time you tell someone about your day, or about that nice lady in the grocery store line, or about your secret desire to shepherd llamas in Peru, that’s a story.

Your stories have power. I want to show you why, and how to channel that power to serve your potential.

I've taught creative entrepreneurs, mid-career and mid-life transitioners, and my brethren, distractible "multi-potentialites" how to use their own life stories to find and keep focus on their Big Pictures.

"To be very honest with you, I've taken a number of writing classes and none has been able to "get through to my why" like this one. Ultimately, even though I plan to write fiction, it IS going to be my own story that I'll be telling. And so this "about" sentence is really going to help me write about my own heroine’s journey! And it's going to be parallel to my own life and so it's been a double gift!"
