Mine To Tell

Our online courses help you find your creative voice.

—Express yourself with greater clarity—
—Find space for your creativity—
—Feel more confident in your voice and your perspective—

You carry a story inside you that only you can tell.

You sense that there is something glowing inside you, waiting to be told. But you don't know how to say it. Or you don't have time. Or your voice got lost along the way.

We're Ashmae and Kathy and we created the courses at Mine to Tell to help you find your unique voice and express it with confidence.

We're honored that you're here.

And we are so excited to hear what you have to share.
