About Inspiring Exp

Where vulnerability meets authenticity and creates meaningful connections.

Inspiring Experiences is an empathy-centric, self-exploration movement that relies on strategic storytelling methods, interactive workshops, and story-sharing to guide and support people as they elevate their voices, uncover their authentic value, and discover themselves to craft their personal stories. We believe that our stories are the most important tool for self-exploration and self-discovery.

From building empathy to building a business or brand, Inspiring Experiences provides the resources, partnership, and encouragement you need to uncover and develop your authentic story and connect with yourself and your audience.

"I believe in people's will to learn, to empathize, to be themselves — I believe in the power of our stories to change the world."

Hi, I'm Alexis!

Founder, Writer & Self-Exploration Enthusiast

Hi there! I'm Alexis Russell — a passionate mother, wife, creator, and story enthusiast who loves, lives, and leads with empathy.

I've always been a creative soul. Singing, dancing, and poetry used to be the only ways I knew how to express myself. In 2018, while participating in the KIPP Leadership Accelerator, I had my "Aha!" moment and realized that each of my passions was a form of storytelling.

The thread that was weaving between each of my performances was connecting the dots to my most authentic self and purpose.

Today, I help other people tell their own stories. I've pivoted from being on the stage to setting the stage for others to share who they are with the world. I've become even more of a passionate writer and lover of the power of words and I've realized that I enjoy being a champion of self-exploration in both myself and others.

Over the last few years, I've gained quite a bit of storytelling and content creation experience. I've had the opportunity to partner with more than 40 local, national, and global nonprofits, socially conscious organizations, and business and community leaders as well as hundreds of individuals from around the country helping each of them to share their stories.

As the creator of Inspiring Experiences, I'm supporting people as they reframe their mindsets, build empathy and genuine connections with others, connect the dots on their self-discovery journeys, and craft and share their stories.

My hope is that you'll join me. Become part of my story and allow me to become part of yours.

Together, we can create a world where being our whole vulnerable, authentic, and empathetic selves is accepted and normalized through sharing our stories with each other.
01
Empathy
Empathy guides our actions and allows us to accept others as they are.
02
Authenticity
Choose authenticity. Practice letting go of who you think you are supposed to be and embrace who you really are.
03
Vulnerability
Our stories are not without blemishes. At the heart of authenticity is the courage to be vulnerable.
04
Connection
Sharing your story creates direction, grounding, and connection to yourself and others.
