In A World More Connected Yet Disconnect, Our Stories Connect Us All

Authentic Connection Begins With You. 

The Backstory: Carlyn found herself navigating through tough changes in life: a Corporate layoff, months after moving into her own apartment, while managing her Multiple Sclerosis, following the end a relationship. 

Self navigating through self transformation, Carlyn struggled to define herself.
She was “in-between stories”

Redefining life on her own terms, Carlyn faced tough, deep questions:
Who Am I?
What Do I Want In Life?
Where Can I Meet People?
How Do I Exchange Contact Information? 

Then One Day, It All Came Together.  
Combining her passion for people, connection and stories, Carlyn created a “Connection Card”
She gave herself the title: “Turning Strangers Into Friends”

Quickly Carlyn learned the power of her face to face exchanges:
It seemed the more she invited conversation and shared her stories, the more meaningful connections she made and the more people shared their stories, too.

Carlyn’s intuitive and couragous journey continues to invite and inspire
synchronicity and authentic connection, everywhere she goes.
