"If today were your last day on earth, would you be leaving behind a legacy of love or yet another story of what could have been?"
– Malana Hokulani, Your Story Uncaged Workshop
My guess is you can relate to at least one of these:
✨You're having a hard time expressing yourself and feel blocked and/or you’re worried about what other people will think about you
✨You feel like you have so much locked up inside, but you're struggling to make sense of your story– you don't know where to start or how to bring it all together in a succinct way
✨You've experienced or are undergoing a personal transformation – whether through a spiritual journey, a health crisis, a traumatic event, or something else – and you're not sure how to organize and share your experiences in a way that resonates with others & could inspire change
✨You're confused about how to translate your gifts, skills, and experiences into a clear & compelling message that communicates who you are and what you do
✨You're not sure how to weave your personal stories into your business, career, and passion projects in a way that connects with others & serves a purpose
✨You've been thinking about sharing your story, but you're not sure if it matters all that much and would care to read or listen
If you answered 'Yes!' to any of the above, my free workshop will help you start busting through all of that!
"You know I'm such a big fan of your work, and I knew it was gonna be great, but you just overdelivered, and it's honestly phenomenal."

I'm Malana– I'm a writer and coach who helps women find the words and the courage to share their stories and gifts with the world.
There was a time in my life when most of my stories and experiences were locked deep inside, and I found it next to impossible to share what was on my heart.
Once I found the courage to start sharing my own story – a story of healing after trauma and abuse – it ignited other women with similar journeys to start sharing theirs.
As I opened up about my experiences of childhood sexual abuse, it helped women to begin facing and healing abuses of their own– sharing my story even led to it being featured in a book!
When I told my story of quitting weed after a 10-year addiction to help myself cope, it inspired women to consider quitting too– one woman just came up on a year sober from a talk I gave!
And throughout my career, when I took initiative to share about my gifts, skills, and experiences, it sparked conversation, opened doors, and allowed me to get paid to use them.
Knowing how to communicate something as simple as what we know and what we've been through can literally be the difference between a life changing or staying the same– our own life and the lives of others.
"She's such a great writer, truth-exposer, emotion-revealer."

And stories are the most powerful way to connect with and inspires others– science shows this.
When we listen to stories, our bodies actually release the hormones: dopamine (grabs our attention), cortisol (focuses us), and oxytocin (builds a bond). This means through telling our story and experiences, we're actually making it easier to connect with our audience in a genuine and authentic way, all of which helps us to retain information long-term.
And when it comes to business, research even shows that:
✨ Storytelling can boost conversion rates by up to 30% while making people 55% more likely to purchase in the future
✨ Nearly 80% of people surveyed WANT to hear brands telling stories
✨ 66% of people believe the best stories are those about regular people!

If we KNOW that people WANT our stories, then we have a responsibility to share them, especially when we know that what we're sharing can change a life.
✨ A woman's triumphant journey to healing and sobriety after facing memories of childhood trauma and the ways that she coped
✨ A mother's motivation for opting out of the system and homeschooling her children– what she's learned and how her children are thriving
✨ A woman's eye-opening and uncomfortable realizations around industries such as porn, abortion, and animal farming– what she's learned and now doing differently
✨ An entrepreneur's story of living with little passion and purpose to finding a path she now lives, breathes, and loves
✨ A domestic abuse survivor's fight to keep her children safe through post-separation abuse and the injustices of the family court system
✨ A woman's devastating experience of taking a vaccine and no longer being able to conceive
✨ A young woman's harrowing tale of de-transitioning after learning that she's been exploited by the medical industry
The stories inside of you are endless and span so many topics and moments in your life.
When shared, they can provide a message of hope or simply spark awareness.
They can provide personal feelings of relief from no longer keeping them trapped inside of you.
They can even inspire new projects and whole businesses where you can combine your stories, skills, and gifts to serve others more deeply.
And I believe we all have something to give and a story to share.
Whether you're starting from scratch or you've already begun uncaging your story and need a boost, this free workshop will help you where you are today.
It will also provide a soft place to land if you're struggling to believe that your story matters and deserves to be told– even if it's not mainstream or widely accepted.
With my background in online business and health & wellness paired with my own personal experiences, I bring a holistic approach to helping women on a transformational path of self-healing and personal growth to share their stories and their gifts in their lives and businesses.
