Human beings, by nature, are storytelling creatures. It is how we have passed on tribal knowledge since we gathered around the first fire.
Behind every successful business or person is a great story. As an entrepreneur you need to become an expert storyteller - your story is your brand.
Your story drives all aspects of your business and creates participation. It needs to be integrated into your marketing strategy, sales tools, your organizational culture and how you value your customers.
When you share your story, you are better able to build trust and connections in relationships and create emotion. Emotion helps people to remember a story, and it makes them want to retell it, helping the knowledge become viral.
Come learn from the experts how to communicate your story to your clients, prospects, partners and employees. Even if you're not a gifted speaker or a natural sales person, storytelling is an art and the more practice you put it into the better you'll become. The reward is huge – people buying into your passion and wanting to be part of it.
