As a Greatest Story client, please enjoy these special resources!

Client-Only Books

My bestselling book, Permission to Try, is all about switching careers, facing fears, and starting a business. It’s an empowering, encouraging read for anyone feeling stuck in their job or lacking purpose.

  • A complimentary book for a friend or colleague: If you have a friend, family member, or colleague who’d be helped by this book, since you’re my client, I would love to mail a signed paperback copy, on your behalf, to the person of your choice, completely complimentary!

    > To request this gifted copy, simply email me ( with the person’s name and mailing address anytime during the calendar year of your project or session with me.

  • Gift copies to your clients, friends, etc.: As a client, you can also purchase signed copies at the client rate of $10 per copy (plus applicable sales tax if you’re in NC with flat-rate shipping). (The retail price is $12.99 on Amazon).

    > Request your client-only rate copies with an email to me at any time or by using the button below.

NC Free Monthly Workshops & Networking

I host a free, monthly workshop series on branding called Branding with Annie every 2nd Tuesday at The Frontier in Durham, NC at 12pm.

Many of my clients attend regularly, and I often feature work to put a spotlight on clients’ businesses! Join us for networking and feel free to invite friends to join you. Tickets are free, but registration and on-time arrival are both required as the workshop often sells out.

Register here or click the link below to join us at the next event.

Bi-Monthly Branding Newsletter

I write a helpful email newsletter every other week called “Skip to Action.” It’s a quick read, designed to challenge you to do one thing every 2 weeks that’ll have an impact on your brand, business, or both.

The newsletter also includes regular updates on my upcoming speaking engagements, links to longer related articles, and more guiding resources for branding and business.

Sign up below or email me to have me add you, if you’re not already on the list!

Speaking for Your Organization

Are you a part of a group / association / or organization with other small business owners or entrepreneurs?

As a professional speaker, I could be available to speak at your next event, meeting, or even conference! I have 10+ workshops on branding for small businesses and a motivational signature talk on finding purpose and giving yourself “permission to try.” I speak throughout the NC triangle and around the country.

And since you’re a client, I may be able to speak to your group for a reduced fee. I can sometimes present complimentary, depending on the event, as my schedule allows throughout the year.

Learn more on my speaking page here, and contact me by email ( or phone (919-886-7867) if you’d like to look at having me speak for your organization.

Connections & Introductions

I’m always invested in you and your story. Throughout our work together and beyond, don’t be surprised if I make email connections for you to other professionals and opportunities. Past clients will tell you, I’m always on the lookout for synergy and good things!

And if you spot someone you’d like to meet who is in my network (via LinkedIn, etc.), please contact me via email and let me know. If it’s a good fit, I’ll be happy to connect you with the right person. (I’d just like 100% of the credit if you become best friends or business buddies.)

Thank you for entrusting me with your story as a client. I’m so grateful for our work together!
