The Art of Storytelling for Business
PICTURE THIS: The room goes dark. Everyone gets silent, and the only sound you hear is the rustle of popcorn.
The studio logo fades up on screen, and you smile in trusting anticipation.
Then you are taken on a journey. It might make you laugh, it might make you cry, it might make you think. It might last for 5 minutes or it might hold you for two hours.
But when the credits roll, you are not in the same place as you were before.
You feel, somehow, changed.
And everyone will say they had a slightly different experience. Yet they had a shared experience.
The first time I was able to help people feel that connection, I was honored.
I was also hooked.
Since then, my films have entertained audiences from New York to Los Angeles, from Toronto to Miami, from Sonoma to Puerto Rico and from Buffalo to Muskogee, Oklahoma.
When I first started, I edited stories on film, cut by hand.
Today they are told on screens that you hold in your hand.
But the most amazing thing is, you don’t have to be a big studio to tell a big story. And you don’t have to be creating entertainment to be a storyteller.
You can do it your self. You can use storytelling in your business.
In fact, from my experience that might be the smartest thing you can do for your business.
With more than 30+ years as a visual storyteller and marketer, I’ve found that if you apply the right storytelling structure, tools and techniques, any small business, consultant, entrepreneur or coach can create a compelling connection with their ideal audience.
Better stories = More loyal audience = Increased revenue

But then there are the businesses that do this well. They see exponential growth. They get media coverage and spread via word-of-mouth.

But I’m here to let you in on a secret:
