018: Bree Noble - On Sharing Your Story

Bree Noble is a mom, entrepreneur, musician and speaker. Her music was her main form of expression; but then she realized that to really connect with her audience, she needed to tell her story more.  

In this episode of This Moved Me, Bree and I talk about her career arc - as a speaker, musician, podcast host and entrepreneur... but at the core of it is Bree's story that comes from her own struggle with Glaucoma: she shares her story because, though it's hard, it's what has helped her grow her audience.

Highly recommend the book Me Before You, by Jojo Moyes. Sad, thoughtful and ultimately uplifting.


A beautiful moment with her daughter playing music in their Christmas musical. One of those quintessential parenting moments.  And, Bree and her older daughter played a duet; watching her daughter overcome her stage fright and play together!

Here's a link to a video, if you want to hear a beautiful duet between Bree and her daughter.

(Kids taking performance risks always moves me!)
