I was an ordinary farm girl, growing up in Manitoba, Canada.

Then, one day, my life changed forever.



The video on the left is my story. I tell it at all my speeches. Rather than simply give out facts about me and what I’ve done, I use this story to capture the audience’s interest, encourage them to listen, and to really think. Then I ask them questions about how this story spoke to them and what it brought to mind. Could you do the same with one of your stories? The answer is, “Yes, you can.”

“My love is to find ordinary people like me

and help them tell their extraordinary story

to reach the people they want to reach.

My mission is to impact one million people annually

through Wealth Through Stories.”

— Linda A. Olson

Brene Brown says, “Owning our story and loving ourselves in the process is the bravest thing we will ever do.”

It certainly was for me.

The impact of causing my brother BIlly’s death was immediate, severe, and has lasted all my life. Almost at once, I began to ask the same questions everyone asks in difficult situations like this

Through courage, unwavering faith, and perseverance, I was fortunate enough to discover the extraordinary answers that have become blessings I will cherish forever. With that faith-based boldness, I stepped forward to tell my story to millions who need a message of hope and forgiveness in their darkest hour. Through this experience, I became aware of the power and healing ability of storytelling. I discovered I was a good storyteller—  and that with practice and insight I was getting better and better at it. It is with that knowledge and the compelling need to help others, that I started “Wealth Through Stories.”

My brother Billy.

I hope you will join us and tell your stories. I say stories because we all have many more than one story in our lives. To help you improve your skill in storytelling, I encourage you to sign up to become a storyteller. There’s no cost, only reward; the reward of knowing your story will help someone else get through a difficult time in their life. And sometimes, that’s both as much as we can hope for, and more than we expect or feel we deserve.

If becoming a better storyteller interests you, or you’d like to have me speak for your group or organization, I invite you to continue looking through this website. You will have opportunities to download information, sign up for a Free Consultation, join me and others like us on retreat, and become a regular Storyteller on our Wealth Through Stories Blog. Thanks.
