Our why – Everything we do is centered around inspiration. We believe people do their best work when inspired. This results in positive actions and forward motion. The way we do this is through genuine, yet sophisticated “storytelling” that is designed to emotionally connect and build trust with the audience. This elegant solution is content that can be shared across media platforms.
During the early days of the pandemic, they connected on Zoom regularly. They realized the conversations were energizing and decided to ask a guest to join and record the conversation.
The name Gale Force Wins came to them quickly, like it was meant to be, and surprisingly the website address was available. Within a couple of months, something very special started to happen. Many people were telling us they were really inspired by what we were doing and the motivation to continue just grew. It became clear that the demand for this type of content was very high. While we did not start this as a business we are excited to let you know it has become one, with numerous organizations hiring us to create custom content.
