Important information about this 7 part series:
- The story you create can be a personal story used in your personal life, or else it can be a story you use for your business, regardless of the type of business you are in.
- I’ll be walking alongside you, crafting a brand new story of my own. I will teach you how to craft an excellent story, and you’ll watch me do so in real time!
- You will receive an actionable worksheet you can fill in daily as your story is built out. This worksheet will become the road map for your story, and you can use it for any future stories you want to create.
- I am a storyteller and public speaker performing routinely on stages nationwide. Several times per month! This will not be a theory or strategy taught by someone who doesn’t do the job or has never done the job. You’ll be learning from someone who has been successful in walking the walk.
