Have you ever had the fantasy that a chance encounter with a stranger could tell you who to be? Karin Gutman was working as an assistant when a senior advisor to a US Senator came out of the blue with an offer to change her life.
Karin Gutman is the founder of Spirit of Story, a writing and story consulting business devoted to guiding people in discovering and writing their personal, life-based stories. Karin also recently started a Women’s Story Circle which is a monthly writing salon at a private home in Hancock Park.
This story first aired on Strangers in April, 2012.
