People want to see the real you. They want to know what you're all about and why you do the work that you do.
So many talented people and entrepreneurs like you don’t believe their unique stories are valuable!

Don’t worry about trying to include every single experience in your life. The goal is to select the experiences you’ve had that you believe will be most helpful to your audience. After you complete the 4-Step Framework, specific themes and/or metaphors should begin to emerge for you. These will serve as the threads that will tie your story together.
A good story should accomplish the following:
