Hello, my friend!
Story Sparks is a stimulating, one-of-a-kind weekly note I send to my closest readers.
Who are those lovely peeps?
Independent-minded women creators and changemakers at midlife and beyond who are in search of more peaceful and introvert-friendly ways of creating and promoting the new chapter of their life’s beautiful work.
Quiet luminaries with big, bold ideas and exciting creative projects who want to create more, connect more, and earn more with joy, ease, and integrity.
Introspective women at midlife and beyond who have stories to tell, wisdom to share, books to write, and heart-based businesses to grow so that they can make their part of the world a better place while doing work they love.
Women who choose themselves, and who don’t wait to be picked to create what makes them come alive.
“Cigdem is extraordinary. You cannot be anywhere in her sphere of influence without being compelled and propelled into action and transformation.”
