The Power of a Great Story

The best stories leave you thinking. They challenge your heart and your mind.

The fact that I’m a story-teller is no accident. It didn’t just happen by chance. Through years of practice and by intentionally honing the skills required to tell a great tale, I’ve learned that a well-told story can challenge a large audience to action. It can alter the outcome of a difficult business decision. It can change the entire direction of a relationship: A great story told with humor and truth can make all the difference.

Here are a few examples of some amazing stories I’ve had the privilege to tell: STORY LINKS.
