Each and every one of us have hundreds of stories that you could be telling people to attract people into your business whether to motivate your team or attract new customers. In today’s congested marketplace you either tell powerful stories or…people forget you.
In this episode, Carla Rieger talks about the “7 Secrets for Helping Your Signature Personal Story Go Viral” the power of using a signature personal story in your business communication. You may already have one if so it is good to have more than one. And if you do not have one, Carla highly suggests you use it in presentations and conversations, online profile, your ‘About’ page and it is the ‘Why you do what you do’ in story form. Lots of people maybe list why they do what they do but they haven’t actually put it in a story.
“Stories captivate people at a whole deep level. You can open minds and hearts through a story in a way you can’t do in other forms of communication.”
