hi, i’m lindy!
the heart and soul behind a linderella story.
A Linderella Story is a symbol of my come up.
I first received the nickname Linderella from my aunt. It’s a play on my name and originally stemmed from my tendency to go out of my way to make other people happy.
Each chapter of my story that has brought me to this point in the novel of my life, and if this is how the story begins, I can guarantee you it’s going to be a best seller.
I believe that stories are magic and our most organic source of inspiration.
A Linderella Story was created to tell the story of the humans behind the brand. By creating unique content for business owners and sharing their stories through writing, my goal is to capture the essence of your organization.
Whether you need engaging copy for your website, help creating riveting social media captions, edits made on a blog post, or anything in between, I will work with you to find your voice and speak to your audience in a way that turns passive followers into raving fans.
This is a platform where dreamers come together to learn a bit about each other while learning a lot about themselves. A Linderella Story is dedicated to the stories within each and every one of us: may they be the fuel that ignites inspiration around the world.
I came to the realization that if I am going to share the stories of others, I’d be damned if I didn’t share my story, too.
Growing up, I never really had a solid idea of what I wanted to be when I was older. I had dreams of leaving Ohio and heading to the west coast to pursue a career in fashion, but a semester in a fashion program taught me that I may not be cut out for a career in fashion merchandising, after-all. When I finally settled down into the college of my dreams, I was a year behind my peers so I pursued a degree I knew I would excel in, not one that I loved.
Little did I know that college, the best years of my life, would come and go so quickly. Suddenly, I found myself back home on my mom’s couch, in my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, wondering how the hell I had gotten there so fast. With no direction but my Education degree, I chose the path of most resistance and became an Intervention Specialist, focusing on teaching students with severe/profound Autism.
Even on the most rewarding days, I would come home exhausted and worn-out with no energy left to focus on myself. I continued to live in a really negative space for four years, finding myself continuously cycling through deep depressions and constant anxiety.
I knew that it was time for a change when I became sick of the negative energy that I was exuding.
In early 2018, I decided to turn my life around and starting doing things for myself again. I began to write. I began to network. I began to transform. Suddenly, in this new headspace, the dreams that once felt so distant seemed attainable and I knew I needed to take a shot at achieving them.
The idea for my brand came from a college friend that I reconnected with over some drinks one evening. In talking about post-grad life and the ever-changing era of young adulting, I mentioned that I was trying to get a blog up and running (he had no idea that I had been spending hours and hours writing content for a blog idea that just didn’t feel right). But, as I was trying to hype myself up to talk about my blog’s theme, Dan said, “You keep talking about your love for people. You should just write about the conversations you have with them. You should really be writing all of this down right now.”
Holy shit, that was it. That was the moment. That was the idea I had been waiting for.
Since that conversation, A Linderella Story has not stopped evolving. What started as a creative outlet turned into a profitable side-hustle creating copy for small business owners and entrepreneurs in Cleveland, Ohio.
Now, a little over a year, a career transition (so-long, teaching!), and a move to The Big Apple later, A Linderella Story is a content creation studio run out of my tiny studio apartment in New York City.
I am finally living my dream and now I want to help you achieve yours.
With clients all over the world, A Linderella Story is going places and with my help, your brand can, too.
