Meet Cindy Ashton
Your voice, your ideas, your mission matter.
What you have to say deserves to be heard so you can make the impact you long to.
I know this all too well from personal experience…
At birth, the doctors told my parents that I had a 20% chance of living due to heart failure and damage caused to the left side of my body.
The wonders of modern surgery managed to save my life, however the multiple stays in the hospital as a small child were far from fun or empowering.
Living with an “invisible’ illness my whole life, I heard things like this over and over…
Doctor to Nurse: “See this on the monitor. Someone died of this last week.”
Me: “I have a heart condition. I need rest.”
Teachers, friends, family & colleagues: “You look fine. Don’t be such a drama queen.”
Trying to get my voice heard, especially when people couldn’t see the ‘sickness,’ has fueled me to make sure that your voice is not silenced and that YOU can grow your mission to the next level.
I know how much it costs financially, emotionally and in lost relationships when we are not being heard in a way that allows us to be seen and thrive.
It made me committed to:
- Having the courage to liberate my voice and self-express no matter what.
- Learning the art, science and craft on everything to do with speaking voice, body language, presence, storytelling and messaging.
- Performing works that bring joy, heal and/or contribute to positive cultural/societal change.
- Training others (for over 25 years!) on how to speak from their power, get their voices heard, have an impact and close more deals with their business and message.
- Healing others with my book and one-woman musical show, Liberate Your Voice.
