Your story begins like all great stories do – at the beginning. Where you begin – and where you go – with your story is unique to you.

What makes you want to read or listen to the stories that follow these lines?

“Once upon a time, there was a woman who discovered she had turned into the wrong person.”

“In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing.”

"Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendia was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice." *

Your story takes shape during a period of meetings, coaching, research, interviews, and narrative development. It comes to life in a written document, oral history, coffee table book, multi-media website, or documentary film. Or all of those.

Your story is also told – in a multi-generational family meeting, business event, or foundation meeting that allows you to share your story and for participants to share what they learned from taking part.

It’s your story. Write your own first line – and then let Historia tell the rest of it. Get in touch.

*American Book Review, “100 Best First Lines from Novels”

“Families [often] fail to tell the family’s stories. These stories are the glue that binds together the individual members of the family. Family stories give members a sense of the unique history and values they share, their ‘differentness.’”
