Our Smiles Connect Us All

Wear Your smile, Share Your Smile

Our Stories Connect Us All.

We live in a world more connected yet more disconnected. It’s time to step away from the screen and step out to be seen!

Craving More Connection?

Join Carlyn & the “Whoever Smiles First Wins” Movement! Have fun saying I’m friendly and approachable and inviting people to feel seen and heard while building self confidence and authentic community.

Your Smile Matters. 

Strangers To Friends aims to inspire you to embrace the possibility that the person you least expect might be the next person you are meant to meet.

What began as Carlyn’s personal Connection Card in 2010, launched her into leading life turning strangers into friends. Each serendipitous smile swap with a stranger reminds her our stories connect us all. With courage and confidence, Carlyn co creates her reality through by being open to people and possibilities. An empowerment expert and a purveyor of personal strength, she supports an individuals journey while inspiring people to become the best version of themselves.




Our Stories Connect Us All.

Let’s face it, we live in a world more connected than ever yet more disconnected than ever. So how do you initiate more connection? It starts with owning and sharing your story and being open to others to do the same.

In a world of swiping, liking and tagging,  Strangers To Friends offers facilitated face to face experiences for you to meet new people, who also want to meet new people.  Our Non-Networking approach challenges you to lead with you!
No filters, expectations or judgement allowed.

Step away from the screen and step out to be seen.
Understanding vs Empathizing.
Compassion vs Comparison.

Be open to new people, perspectives and possibilities.
