A wise man once said “Clear thinking requires courage rather than intelligence.”

When you are absolutely clear about your Origin Story it will inspire you. Even better, it will be inspiring to others! Make an effort to get really clear – first for yourself – and your audience will be grateful.

Some questions: Have you thought about why you do what you do? Have you thought about how your daily work is an expression of your values? Have you traced the golden thread that runs through your life? It’s there. Told well, it’s inspiring to all, its CLEAR to all.

When your story is absolutely clear, share it in a way that lands. A well-chosen, well-crafted, well-told Origin Story will both establish your Emotional Credibility™, and open the door for others to share their stories with you!

Exchanging meaningful stories becomes an exquisite connection. When you tell people why you care about what you do, they will fall in love with you and tell you their story. Maybe not everyone, but the right ones!

As alway, if you have questions for me just hit reply and let me know!
