Change is guaranteed; learning to navigate it gracefully and gratefully, that's where I come in.
I'm KC McCormick Çiftçi, the founder of Borderless Stories, transformation and embodiment life coach, and no stranger to change. Actually, Borderless Stories is no stranger to change either -- this business has gone through a pivot of its own, from being an intercultural relationship coaching practice to what you see today.
How did we get here? Well, I'll spare you all of the details, but the short version is that my story started in small town Michigan, and after wrestling with my own big dreams and goals (and realizing that they wouldn't go away if I ignored them), it took me literally around the world. I spent eight years living and working (mainly as an English teacher) in Germany, Ireland, South Korea, and Turkey. In Turkey, I met my husband, Hüseyin, and the intercultural nature of our relationship, combined with my ever-present desire to do work that would have a meaningful impact on the lives of others led me to coaching.
I spent the first couple years of my coaching experience struggling to fit into a niche that seemed like it had been tailor-made for me: intercultural relationship support. I had the experience, I met all the requirements...and yet, try as I might, it never took off the way I wanted it to. In that time, I wrote two books, hosted a podcast and two virtual retreats with amazing guest speakers...I did it all, but there was always something missing.
In November 2020, that business, which I had viewed as another constant in my life, as crucial in my growth as my relationship with my husband, suffered (and blossomed) through an identity crisis. I realized that the niche I had hidden myself inside wasn't really for me. I did not want to limit myself to being identified only by my relationship status, and I certainly didn't want to do the same to others (especially women, who've had that done to them more than enough) that I might work with.
Rising from the ashes, we are still called Borderless Stories -- because your story, and the limits to which you can change it, is truly borderless. We are here to help others tune in to their truest desires, find the courage to make them a reality, and embody their next-level self. Right now, we are doing this through the Transformation + Embodiment Society, a four-week program of coaching and accountability, and you can learn more about it by clicking the button at the bottom of the page.
I'm so glad you've found your way to this page, and I truly believe in you and in the transformation that you are envisioning for yourself. Let's make it your reality together.
