Rebekah Radice and Josh Parkinson of Post Planner invited me to chat with them about "How to Use Storytelling in Your Social Media Marketing". As you can imagine, it took me all of 2 seconds to ACCEPT!
We discussed a current book I am reading (Firms of Endearment) and then went for a deep dive into what storytelling is all about, how to do it, where to share stories, and so much more. Want a teaser to the chat? I thought so...
When you embrace your

you shine a light so bright that
PEOPLE & OPPORTUNITIES
We often forget that when we truly step into our truest selves MAGIC HAPPENS.
Opportunities arise. People arrive. Success abounds.
TODAY. Right now.
Stop trying to be someone else.
Define your own success.
Design YOUR life.
ALL OF IT.

I have ooooodles of conversations that include questions and answers like these:
Q1: Do I need it?
A1: You don't need a WHY statement to live, but I believe having one equips you to live a life with focus and intentionally leveraging your true purpose.
Q2: Why does a "why statement" matter?
A2: It matters because is creates clarity for every decision you make.
Q3: It seems impossible to really define my why - do people really do it?
