About Speak Your Kind
The Purpose and what that means for you...
Speak Your Kind exists to provide communication assistance for all instances, needs, and occasions - business or personal, written or verbal. I'm here to make sure nothing that needs saying ever goes unsaid.
Sometimes it's because you can't find the right words or you have yourself convinced they aren't worth saying (you're wrong -You are worth it!). My greatest joy is helping people communicate what they need in ways they can't do alone. I will help you write what needs to be written, say what needs to be said, and go after what you want!
Services include (but are not limited to): Letters, wedding, renewal, or commitment ceremony vows, blog posts, social media posts, ghost writing, speeches, grand gestures, apologies, make-ups, break-ups, dating profiles, first impressions, and more!
Finding Your Voice
Do you ever finish a conversation and 30 minutes, or even 4 days (or years!) later think "I should have said..."?
Have you ever wanted to apologize but didn't have the right words so you left someone hurting?
Remember the time someone poured their heart out on you and your head was screaming but nothing came out?
What about that bully you never confronted and need to write a letter, even if you don't mail it, to resolve it for YOU?
What about the proposal, or the best man (or woman)/maid (or man) of honor speech, that you have to totally kill but trying to write it is killing you first?
What about the passing of a loved one - do you need help preparing a eulogy? Let's use your calm moments to find the words in your heart so when the time comes, you are prepared to share you most important good bye or thank you.
Do you need to have a conversation with your boss but need assistance finding the best way to approach it?
Do you have a friend at work who you need to address something difficult with?
Hello from Austin, TX! My name is T.J. - I love stories in all their forms, words, the color black, tattoos, coffee, sarcasm, love, vanilla ice cream, my people and the lights of my life - my 2 nieces! I started this business to put the LOVE back in language!
When I decided to start Speak Your Kind I worried that it was such a perfect idea for me that it couldn't be real. I'd said so many times that if I could pick any job in the history of jobs - I'd write love letters for people. As I've grown older and survived more heart breaks, celebrated more victories, and loved oh-so-much more, I have realized that I don't want to just write love letters, I want to write letters of love.
Sometimes I have things in my head that I wish, so desperately, I could get onto a canvas, but I can't paint. I find this leaves me worried I'm leaving something important undone. I realize that my unpainted pictures are some people's untold stories. With our entire lives so delicately surviving in, around, and through communication, I can't imagine how frustrating, disappointing, and heart breaking it must be to have things in your head that you need to put in the world but not have the ability to do so. That's where I help you find your voice with my words!
I believe that kindness matters, that pain is real, that happiness can be fleeting, and that love - oh my goodness LOVE... is the most important thing of all! I want you to think of all types of love: self love, romantic love, familial love, animal love, nature love, music-movies-fashion-sports-careers-cars-goals-money-flowers-food-anything that matters to you kind of LOVE!
Whatever it is you need to say, that you just can't quite find the words for... I have them, and words - words are my love. Words about love, to find love, to heal love, to set love free, to self love, to spread love, to curse love, to forgive love... It all needs to be said, and whatever format you need to say them in, for whatever reason you absolutely must say them - it is my greatest gift and I look forward to helping you put your best, kindest, most driven foot forward to say what you need to say in the world!
This is my truth and I so proudly stand in it. I invite you to find yours and do the same!
Just remember how beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it and that extremes call to one another so - whatever you are... BE A GOOD ONE! XOXO
