Have you ever been excited to tell someone about something that happened to you that you think is hilarious, fascinating, a great selling point, or maybe even life-changing and then it seems to fall flat on your audience?
I have experienced this more times than I care to admit. And that is one of the many reasons I decided to study storytelling. There are countless things I’ve learned, some that make me think “duh, why didn’t I notice that in stories I love?” and other things that are so subtle, you wouldn’t notice them unless you’ve been trained to do so.
But if you don’t have several months to take a sabbatical and immerse yourself in an in-depth study of storytelling, I’m gonna give you the quickest shortcut to captivating your audience with stories, whether you use them for business or your personal life.
