Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
Is this program simply a bunch of general writing prompts?
No. Thought and memory provoking, the prompts we provide are meant to take you deeper into your memories and experiences where breakthroughs and healing take place. You’ll also have private sessions with Joanna and 12 live group sessions to further explore the prompts and the experiences that shaped you.
What if I can’t remember much from my past?
That’s a common concern and we understand why. The coaching and prompts we provide are delivered in a way that jogs your memory and helps you explore the past in a gentle, safe way.
Do I have to be a good writer?
You do not have to be an experienced writer or worry about getting it right when it comes to punctuation, spelling or grammar. The prompts, guided visualizations and workbook make it easy and inspiring to write. Our intuitive writing software makes it easy to title, edit and organize your stories for a cohesive and memorable ebook.
How much of my time will this take?
The 12-week journey is broken down into small, doable sections so that you can fit this program into your regular routine. This program is designed in a way that you’ll look forward to your writing time without feeling overwhelmed or under pressure to produce.
What if I don’t think I have anything worthy or exciting to write about?
I hear this often, and I want you to know that we all have stories! We have all experienced joy and pain. We have gained wisdom and lived through history in the making. Journey to Legacy will help you find your voice and realize you have so much wisdom to share! Your life is full of golden nuggets of wisdom and inspiration! Being asked the right questions and then guided more deeply into those questions, you’ll find you have a remarkable history and story to share.
Why do you require an application to join?
With such an intimate group setting and the sensitivity of topics addressed, I like to ensure each participant is ready and willing to engage and commit to this 12-week journey.
What happens if I get stuck after I sign up?
If you join Journey to Legacy and get stuck at any point in this process, you will have all the support and guidance from our team to ensure you move past any obstacles or technical issues you encounter. If you take our self-guided course, you will also have lifetime support via email in the event you get stuck or need more information.
What if I’m not sure anyone will read my life story?
This is a common worry for many life story writers. The truth is you’ll never know unless you write your story. However, using a unique method to recall those key moments in your life that shaped you often results in surprising revelations and wisdom that impacts others when shared.
What if I’m worried others will judge me once they read what I’ve been through?
We’ll help you find ways to share truthfully (so that loved ones can really know you), and you remain in complete control of what you share.
What is the investment for the 12-week coaching program?
Once you apply, you’ll be emailed a link to schedule a one-on-one Zoom session with Joanna. During this session, you’ll be provided with investment information and payment options to suit your specific situation.
What if my past is too painful?
As a counselor and intuitive coach, I know how difficult it is to experience and recall painful memories. Although I will gently guide you, I do not push or pressure you to go beyond what is comfortable or feels right for you. I’ll help you make peace with some of the most challenging moments of your past and celebrate your strength and ability to rise above. You’ll also have a safe and compassionate community of other life story writers to lean on throughout this 12-week journey.
What should I consider when choosing between the different programs?
Being honest about what you need to be successful is critical. If you are self-motivated and have a strong desire to explore your past without a community of support, the Self-Guided Course is right for you. If you have trouble following through or have experienced more traumatic or challenging experiences in your life, Journey to Legacy is the best option.
What is your refund policy?
Due to the digital nature of our Self-Guided Course, we cannot issue a refund after purchase. If you apply and join the Journey to Legacy program and you discover after the first live session that this program isn’t for you, we’ll issue a full refund once you submit your request in writing.
What if I’m not ready but want to learn more about how this process works?
We recommend starting with our free downloadable guide so you get a feel of what’s involved and the process of life story writing. You can also schedule a call to ask any questions you have.
